The replica is made by J12 factory, like AP 15706, the BumbleBee watch also uses Forged Carbon case, ceramic bezel and case back, Titanium clasp and extreme workmanship, but it is more delicated than 15706. BumbleBee reflects the top watch-making technology in chronograph watches, from watch material to workmanship, J12 does better.
The crystal adopts sapphire with colorless AR Coating, it is very clear even under sun light, there will be a little reflection at a special angle. On the photo above, you almost can not see the existence of the crystal. Like AP Navy, the date magnifier has a layer of light green AR Coating to eliminate reflection, while genuine uses colorless AR Coating, but this tiny difference is hard to spot.
The strongest point of BumbleBee lies that its case back also adopts ceramic, cutting and drawing process all achieve to be perfect.
Forged carbon case has beautiful marble texture, the pattern on this J12 BumbleBee Forged Carbon case is also obvious, very pretty.
Embossed cow leather strap has yellow hand stitching on both sides, which is matching the yellow Tachymeter scales on inner bezel.
Ceramic bezel features sharp edges processed by chamfering polishing. On previous replicas made by J12, the bezel is stainless steel and their octagonal corners are not very sharp.
Chrono buttons and crown have rubber wrapped.
Buckle is Titanium made, DLC processed with delicated drawing process and engraving.
Deployant clasp is also Titanium, showing a Titanium color. The Titanium clasp is stronger and secure than stainless steel clasp, also looks more upscale.
Back cover has “Royal Oak Offshore” engravings, which are polished. The outer ring is drawing processed, which forms a sharp contrast with the brushed inner ring.
At this angle, the smooth surface of the case back fonts is like mirror.
The reflection disappears if changing another angle.
The inner ring has a black matte finished background, which is full of quality texture.
Audemars Piguet BumbleBee replica is really a good rugged sports watch, there are no defects besides its expensive price.
