About Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph watches, they are very popular once being published to the watch market, absolutely genuine watches have sky high prices, so some watch factories here in China tried to make the replicas, among them, OM and B are two factories that have made the replicas of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph, which factory makes the best ones? I think both are greatly different from original watch. The replica made by OM is different from genuine in function, but in appearance, it is very closest to genuine watch. The replica made by B has correct functions, but its dial looks different from genuine watch. Besides, OM has a better finish on the case and dial. So if you really want me pick up one among them, I prefer OM. Why there is not another factory makes a super clone of this AP watch with correct functions and close appearance? Why OM factory does not continue to research and develop a super clone movement for this AP? Maybe it is too difficult for them to develop such a movement.
I still think the Royal Oak Chronograph replica made by OM factory is good, take this rose gold AP replica for example, several clients have bought it and none of them complained its quality. The finish on the case is good, especially on the corner, which is finished smoothly and you won’t have any uncomfortable feeling when wearing. The center of the case back has correct engravings of “Royal Oak” in correct deepth that looks three-dimensional, the engravings are polished in sanded background, besides, there are small icons engraved on the back, well, these small symbols dedicated to golden models, this is a very good detail and OM does a good job.
About the replica, it has a correct case diameter, which is 41mm, but it is a bit thicker than genuine, the replica is almost 15mm in thickness, while genuine watch is only 12mm. I measured the replica watch before, it is about 14.5mm thick. On the checkered dial, the small dial at 6 o’clock display the seconds, the other two small dials are just a decoration, the small hands on these two small dials are fixed, they do not move, this design is similar to that of Daytona made by AR factory. However, the seconds-chronograph hand on the center will move once you push the button at 2 o’clock. I have a suggestion for you to operate the chronograph function on the replica, the order of pressing the buttons is very important, first step is to push the start button at 2, the second step is to push it again to stop the chronograph, the third step is to press the button at 4 o’clock to reset the central seconds-chronograph hand. Follow this step order, and your movement will have few issues.
At last, for this rose gold AP replica with blue dial, OM factory offers blue leather band and blue rubber band for it. Both look very good on the watch.
