At a glance the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica and the Patek Philippe Nautilus seem to be distant cousins. They’re both stainless steel watches from two of the most esteemed watch brands, and they both have pretty unique case designs, but in reality they share much more.
Royal Oak Ref. 15500
Here we’re looking at the Best Replica Royal Oak 15500. It features an updated dial design, and an all-new in-house caliber 4302. Now beating at four Hertz and with a 70 hour power reserve it feels like a modern movement. This Royal Oak is also 41 millimeters. Now some AP purists will say the only Royal Oak is the 15202 with the original 2121 movement, but we feel this is a great modern interpretation of the watch that retains all of the hallmarks of the original.
Now in comparison we have the Patek 5711 Replica Watch. This watch has seen a few updates over the years and is now composed of a more traditional three-piece case design. The movement is the caliber 324 S C, which is probably the single biggest ding on the watch. It has only a 45 hour power reserve and non hacking seconds, which means the seconds hand doesn’t stop while the crown is in the setting position. This new caliber was essentially the same as before, but now with a hacking seconds hand.
