Audemars Piguet was known at this time for making sophisticated high-end wristwatches, but the Replica Royal Oak was a daring new design that made the watch industry stand up and take note.
Based on a ship’s porthole, the distinctive monobloc, octagonal bezel—secured by eight hexagonal screws—meant the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica could be very thin, and with an integrated bracelet, the sports-watch look that AP had desired was achieved.
Introduced in 2012, this 18-karat, pink-gold Royal Oak Selfwinding embodies the same spirit of the original 5402 that was introduced in 1972; however, its 41mm case meets the needs of the modern man.
The piece features a black “Grande Tapisserie” with pink-gold applied hour-markers. At the heart of the Best Audemars Piguet Replica beats the self-winding calibre 3120, which features one of the most beautifully engraved 22-karat gold oscillation weights.
