Audemars Piguet Perpetual Calendar 26574 is a complicated watch, it has a lot of functions, in our market, not many factories make the replica of this watch. In the past, only APS factory made this replica watch, the quality is very nice, but the watch has an obvious flaw, which lies in the hand on the center with an arrow tip. On genuine watch, that hand is pointing at current amount of weeks in one year, but on the replica made by APS, that hand works for seconds, it is sweeping across the dial. This time, BBR factory solved this mistake and made all functions correct. I know some people love this replica watch very much, but is it really worth buying from BBR immediately? I do not think so.
AP 26574 is a very complicated watch, even the genuine watch has a high repairing rate because of the movement, so you can not expect the replica just released by BBR can work nicely without any issues. In a word, the replica needs to be tested, if there are few complaints about it, then it will be the time to get one. Currently I still suggest you choose this replica from APS factory even though it has one big flaw on the hand.
I have watched several video reviews about this new replica watch, one or two dealers said the quality control BBR has made on the replica is not good, some tiny issues exist, and to achieve the full functions on the replica, more modifications should have been done on the movement, also means less stability and more issues will happen on the movement in future. Even APS factory did a mistake on the hand, but the functions and movement have already been tested to be stable. Both BBR and APS use Miyota 9015 as a base movement in the replica, the entire watch from BBR is measured to be 11.5mm in thickness, while the replica watch from APS is only 10.5mm thick, which is closer to the thickness of genuine watch.
The functions such as time, date, month, week, moon phase can be easily adjusted, pull out the crown to the second position to adjust the central “week” hand, pull out the crown to the last position, rotate the crown to adjust time and when the hour hand is moving certain rounds, the moon phase indicator, small date hand and small week hand will also move one space. By the way, there are several buttons on the case for quick adjustment to the corresponding function, but do not push them too often. By the way, please do the adjustments on the replica during 6am to 14:00pm, there are a lot of dial colors to choose, check pictures below.
