We all know that Vacheron Constantin’s original integrated sport replica watches for sale, the 222, is back and better than ever after its yellow-gold revival at Watches & Wonders last month. The question that’s been on my mind ever since, however, is exactly how its resurrection might impact collector attention in the original vintage examples. Well, over the next four days, we’ll find out – Phillips has three 222s, in all three original metals, up for grabs today and tomorrow as part of Geneva Watch Auction XV, while Sotheby’s will follow up on Tuesday with vintage 222 options in yellow gold or stainless steel.
As Jack pointed out in his W&W coverage of the revival release, the original 222 is a fairly rare bird. Over an initial production period of seven years, far fewer than a thousand examples were created, with no more than 500 in stainless steel, 150 or so in yellow gold, and not even 100 in two-tone. That’s far, far fewer 1:1 UK fake watches out there than, say, the original Audemars Piguet Royal Oak ref. 5402 or the Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 3700.
Historically, however, that low number hasn’t resulted in any increased desire for vintage 222 replica watches wholesale. Just take a look over in the Shop for proof – we sold a full-set, two-tone 222 from 1981 less than three years ago for $19,000. That’s below the low estimate that Phillips, an auction house notorious for lowballing its estimates, has set for the two-tone 222 going under the hammer tomorrow.
Although interest in the 222 was slow for years, there’s been a gradual increase in attention over the past 48 months, especially as the demand (and prices) for AAA best copy watches like the Royal Oak and Nautilus have risen. The newfound recognition started to peak last November, when a stainless steel 222 sold at Phillips Geneva for CHF 157,500, a world record for the reference at the time and five times its estimated value. That’s a higher number than what comparable examples of the Royal Oak 5402 and Nautilus 3711 went for in the same sale.
Earlier today, during Session I of Geneva Watch Auction XV, Phillips sold a yellow-gold 222 example for CHF 163,800 all-in and a stainless steel 222 for CHF 189,000, breaking the record for a vintage 222 at auction each time once again. We’ll have to wait until tomorrow, when an even rarer two-tone 222 goes up as part of Session II at Phillips, to see where it lands.
“I think collectors are starting to appreciate its design,” says Alexandre Ghotbi, the head of Continental Europe and the Middle East for Phillips Watch Department. “Even though it has that ’70s, Genta-ish look, it’s still very different from the Nautilus and the Royal Oak. I do think that the 222 has been gaining momentum, and the fact that Vacheron has brought out a new version should bring even more interest to the high quality replica watches.”
It’s not uncommon for a new, vintage-inspired release from a watchmaker to spur desire for the original. Examples abound from the past decade-plus, but you need look no further than earlier this year with the story of the Girard-Perregaux Casquette. Interest in the once-ignored 1970s quartz-powered oddball skyrocketed after the now-independent Swiss watchmaker resurrected its long-forgotten digital perfect super clone watches.
Over the past few weeks, collectors have wondered aloud about what seems to be a gradual stabilization in the prices for vintage and pre-owned top fake watches. I plan to delve into this in a bit more detail in my upcoming post-auction week coverage, but I will say now that I think the 222 lots at Sotheby’s and Phillips should be safe from any potential downturn. There’s no manufactured scarcity at play – vintage examples of the 222 are legitimately uncommon, and they were already growing in popularity months before Swiss movements replica Vacheron Constantin watches shined a bright light on its past.
Now that the spotlight is turned on, I can’t imagine it going away anytime soon.
In cosmology, the Big Bang marks the beginning of time; in the watchmaking universe, it is associated with AAA UK replica Hublot’s flagship watches. Launched in 2005, the Big Bang exploded on the scene with its unusual combination of materials and bold design. Today, Hublot presents a watch it claims to be the world’s first full-ceramic minute repeater. It is true that ceramic has almost never been used to create minute repeaters, yet there have been a few examples in the past, such as the AP Royal Oak Offshore Grande Complication in white or black ceramic, which includes a minute repeater function but is worn on a rubber strap. Produced in limited editions of 18 pieces in white ceramic and 18 pieces in black and available exclusively in Japan, here’s the high quality fake Hublot Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Cathedral Minute Repeater watches.
We’ve seen plenty of skeletonised and transparent tourbillons in the Big Bang line-up, including the latest groovy purple model and even colourful full-ceramic models in the Big Bang Integral sub-collection presented in 2020. Minute repeaters may not be not quite as prevalent as tourbillons at Hublot, although the brand took home the Striking Watch Prize for its perfect replica Hublot Classic Fusion Cathedral Tourbillon Minute Repeater watches at the 2014 edition of the GPHG. Powered by the manual-winding HUB 8001 (which first appeared in 2010), the latest minute repeater also runs on this calibre but marks the first time the Big Bang family welcomes a Grande Complication on board in a full-ceramic case. In essence, this world-first Big Bang is a fusion of cheap replica Hublot’s Fusion Tourbillon Minute Repeater and its Integral Ceramic line watches.
Ceramic has been used extensively in watchmaking and even featured as isolated components in grande complications like minute repeaters. However, this is the first time a minute repeater appears from head to toe in ceramic. By “Full Ceramic” Hublot copy watches with Swiss movements is alluding to the fact that the case and bracelet are made out of ceramic, which obviously integrates metallic elements for the assembly process. The intrinsic hardness of ceramic makes it difficult to machine and finish, and colouring the ceramic requires precision firing and timing to obtain a homogeneous result. In this new model, the case is water-resistant to 30 metres.
Furthermore, the replica watches online site is fitted with cathedral gongs, which are nearly twice as long as classic gongs, and enrich and enhance the power of the sound as the hammers strike the gongs. The dial, revealing the openworked movement, has black or matte grey indices with black or white Super-LumiNova, as do the skeletonised hour and minute hands.
CALIBRE HUB 8001
Entirely crafted in-house, the MHUB8001 calibre is manual-winding and provides a robust 80-day power reserve. Fitted with a one-minute tourbillon escapement and minute repeater mechanism, the movement is comprised of 319 components and is visible on both sides of the case.
Available in black or white ceramic, the case has a diameter of 43mm and a thickness of 14.15mm. The ceramic case, caseback, bezel and bracelet display a combination of satin-finished and polished surfaces.
Availability & price
Each colour is limited to 18 timepieces and engraved with “ONE OF 18 PCS” on the caseback, and, as we mentioned, the 36 top super clone watches will only be available in Japan. The black and white ceramic Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Cathedral Minute Repeater retail for CHF 280,000, EUR 291,000, USD 295,000, GBP 244,000 or JPY 31,190,000.
Outside of Watches & Wonders 2022, there was plenty more going on in the heart of Geneva. While close to 40 brands exhibited at the Palexpo complex, several other brands were present at Time to Watches or the Masters of Horology venues in the city, or even spread around some of the lakeside hotels. With so many new luxury UK replica watches being presented, we take a look at some of the most talked-about chronographs presented during what we labelled the Geneva Watch Week.
Replica IWC Pilot’s Watches Chronograph 41 TOP GUN Ceratanium
High quality fake IWC’s classic pilot’s chronograph watches has received a full Ceratanium upgrade long with the TOP GUN treatment. It’s the little brother to the perfect copy IWC Pilot’s Watches Double Chronograph TOP GUN Ceratanium, with a little less complexity in a similar style but smaller package. The TOP GUN subcollection started in 2007 and this new Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 follows suit. The case is entirely made of Ceratanium, best IWC replica watches’ innovative high-tech material with high scratch resistance and a very tactile feel. Updates on the dial and hands set it apart from previous models, but the differences are subtle. Inside beats the in-house made 69385 calibre, a column-wheel chronograph movement based on the architecture of the Valjoux 7750. It ticks at a frequency of 28,800vph and provides 46 hours of autonomy. The movement can be seen through the tinted sapphire crystal caseback. Strapped to a black rubber strap with textile inlay, it retails for EUR 13,500.
Quick Facts – 41.1mm x 14.5mm – black Ceratanium case, crown, pushers and caseback – sapphire crystal on top protected against displacement in air-pressures – partially tinted sapphire crystal caseback – screw-in crown – 100m water-resistant – matte black, grained dial – black hands with grey luminous inserts – grey-painted markers and tracks – Calibre 69385, in-house – automatic column-wheel chronograph – 33 jewels – 28,800vph – 46h power reserve – hours, minutes, small seconds (hacking), chronograph with 30min and 12h counter – black rubber strap with textile inlay – EUR 13,500
Fake Patek Philippe 5172G Salmon Watches
The chronograph has been a pillar-like complication for top Patek Philippe replica watches for decades, with the 5172G being one of the more profound current examples. During Watches & Wonders 2022, the Maison presented the latest iteration, with a sumptuous salmon-coloured dial. It combines the already dashing 5172G design with a dial colour that’s a favourite among the MONOCHROME editorial team. The 18k white gold case of the cheap Swiss super clone watches has the familiar Art-deco style stepped lugs and guilloché decorated pushers. The salmon dial has applied numerals and hands with luminescent material. The recessed subdials are pushed a little downwards to not impede legibility and on the outside perimeter of the dial is a black tachymeter scale. The movement, Calibre CH 29-535 PS, uses 270 components and is of course superbly finished and bears the Patek Philippe seal. The Patek Philippe 5172G with salmon dial retails for CHF 68,000.
Quick Facts – 41mm x 11.45mm – 18k white gold case, polished – sapphire crystal top (box-type) and caseback – 30m water-resistant – salmon-pink varnished dial – white gold applied numerals – tachymeter scale – white gold fine-tipped baton hands – bi-register chronograph subdials – Calibre CH 29-535 PS, in-house – manually wound chronograph movement – 270 components – 28,800vph – 33 jewels – 65h power reserve – hours, minutes, small seconds and chronograph with instantaneous minutes – Patek Philippe Seal – brown alligator leather strap with gold fold-over clasp – CHF 68,000
It’s an unexpected collaboration, but one to please best UK Omega replica watches online and Swatch fans, alike. The two Swatch Group brands came together for a very cool take on the Moon copy watches for sale and to make this highly sought-after classic accessible to a wider audience. Outer space inspired a new collection of eleven Bioceramic quartz chronographs named after the planets of our Solar System. Bioceramic is unique mix of two-thirds ceramic and one-third material derived from castor oil.
Although colors like pink and pale blue offer strong clues that these are not the standard perfect fake Omega Speedmaster watches, even hard-core Moonwatch enthusiasts would be hard-pushed to find the difference in the overall look. The key Moon super clone watches wholesale design features are all in the MoonSwatch: the asymmetrical case, the famous tachymeter scale with a dot over ninety and the distinctive high quality replica Omega Speedmaster watches subdials.
Each MoonSwatch has its own mission statement, inspirational engravings and joint “OMEGA X SWATCH” logos on the dial and crown. The battery covers feature a depiction of its planet. A touch of astronaut chic is added by the Velcro straps. The debutantes are available in selected Swatch stores from 26th of March and retail for $260.
We all have our preferences in life. And that’s a very good thing, otherwise, it would become very boring, very quickly if we all lusted after the same things. But sometimes, the feeling of forced uniformity tends to creep up on us through various circumstances. The Volkswagen Beetle, for instance, was sold in the millions but not because it was such a good car. The same goes for 1:1 luxury replica watches, and to us, it’s sometimes baffling how many people tend to blindly follow the masses and not go for something more original and true to heart. This sadly leads to seriously cool AAA Swiss fake watches being massively overlooked without proper reason. Case in point: the Omega Seamaster Railmaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer, a sleek, vintage-styled watch with an interesting history and proper mechanics under the hood.
In today’s watch industry, people are seemingly flocking towards steel sports watches of all sorts. And for good reason, as most are perfect, everyday high quality replica watches that can take a bit of a beating. And honestly, there are really plenty of very solid options available. IF they are available that is. And I’m not talking about watches with an integrated design either, I’m talking steel sports watches in general.
We all know the state of the market these days, as some watches are ridiculously overhyped. So much so, that it’s impossible to get your hands on some of them without shelling out a huge premium or, even worse, “building a relationship” with an AD by buying top UK copy watches you don’t want, hoping they will one day give you “the call”. While I’m by no means trying to offend people by the choices they make, it seems illogical to buy a watch at 3 or 4 times the premium just because it’s so very “hot”.
But does this mean it is the Modus Operandus across the entire board? Luckily, no, and if you’re willing to do some investigating there are true gems to be uncovered. At retail mind you, or thereabouts at least. Mulling over this very topic within the MONOCHROME editorial team led to at least one watch that is seemingly so overlooked it feels like a bargain almost, in today’s state of collecting watches. We’re talking about the perfect replica Omega Seamaster Railmaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer or Railmaster watches in short.
The Railmaster returned in 2017 and was part of the 1957 Trilogy Set, along with a special edition of the Speedmaster and the Seamaster 300. This box-set was a limited run of 557 pieces only, containing all three faithfully recreated best super clone watches. Next to that, each was presented as a limited edition of 3,557 pieces which could be bought individually. The set marked the 60th anniversary of three of the most iconic Swiss movements replica watches in the industry, as explained here. Each one was modelled after a 1957 reference: the Seamaster 300 CK2913, the Railmaster CK2914 and the Speedmaster CK2915.
Since the Railmaster was reintroduced, it has been updated with a new size, new dials and various strap options. The Trilogy 1957 model had a 38mm wide steel case with Omega’s signature lyre lugs and had an almost perfectly replicated ‘tropical’ dial in greyish-brown/black with broad-arrow hour and minute hands, a needle-like seconds hand and beige Super-LumiNova on the hands and indices.
Omega later introduced a slightly larger size, with a touch more modernity to it. It still featured the same overall design but now in a 40mm diameter. The dial was updated slightly, with a new font for the 3/6/9/12 numerals, a crosshair, vertical brushing, sword-shaped hour and minutes hand, lollipop seconds hand and newly styled hour indices and minute track on the outer perimeter. It definitely captures the essence of the 1957 CK2914, but with a fresh face. Next to a black dial, you can also opt for a monochromatic silver or denim-blue dial with the same layout.
All of these replica watches wholesale shop, the 1957 Trilogy model, are powered by the in-house Calibre 8806, Master Chronometer certified by METAS of course. Thanks to modern construction and materials, there’s no need for a soft-iron inner case anymore to achieve an anti-magnetic resistance of up to 15,000 Gauss. The movement has the well-known co-axial escapement with a free-sprung balance. It runs at a rate of 25,200vph and provides 55 hours of autonomy when fully wound. Although hidden from view by the solid caseback, the movement features the typical style of finishing by Omega, with rhodium plating, Geneva waves in arabesque and blackened balance wheel and screws. The non-1957 2022 online fake Omega Railmaster watches comes on a fully brushed stainless steel bracelet, or on a leather or textile and leather alternatives.
This all sounds fine and dandy of course, but you’re probably expecting some sort of a kicker by now. Well, we can honestly say we didn’t really find one. Sure, at EUR 5,100 on textile/leather or EUR 5,500 on steel bracelet it’s not exactly cheap replica watches by any means. But, and this is important, it is somewhat attainable for most people AND readily available through boutiques and retailers. And with it, you would get a no-nonsense, very solidly built watch, with a properly engineered mechanical movement, and loads of vintage-inspired character. And if you want to tone it down and wear it on that (admittedly rather cool) denim NATO strap, that’s all perfectly fine!
Sure, the China fake Omega Railmaster 1957 Trilogy watches might be a touch harder to source, but it’s far from impossible as well. A quick search on Chrono24, still the go-to source for most collectors, revealed about 15 of this limited edition Railmaster on offer, with some priced at or below retail. And in our books, that sounds like a sure-fire win.
For the first 30 years of my life, many who knew me were surprised to learn that I didn’t own single wrist luxury replica watches. I have always been a fan of nice stuff. And as that fascination swelled in a career editing a style publication (and even writing a column called The Materialist), my timepiece apathy seemed all the more out of character.
“I have too many other things I like blowing my money on,” I used to tell anyone who asked. But if you pried further, I might have given you the truth: I thought 1:1 UK fake watches were kind of lame.
Well, it’s true. And I think it’s important for me to remember that’s how I felt. Because now that I’ve fully imbibed the horological kool-aid – catch me on a Sunday afternoon reading Phillips auction results from two years ago – it’s on me to own that lameness.
If I were to sum up my former distaste for AAA Swiss replica watches into an elevator pitch, it’d be this: Watches yearn for a world that doesn’t exist.
Watches pine for a reality where nobody has an iPhone. Cheap copy watches pretend you actually need a Patek 3940 to tell you that it’s a leap year, or that you might one day require a Speedmaster to time that emergency space landing. Watches make men in particular want to be Paul Newman, at best, or, at worst, Leo in Wolf of Wall Street. In this sense, replica watches for sale are the epicenter of male aspirational fantasy – which can be dangerous, or cool, or hilariously tragic, or (as is often the case) all three at the same time.
Here’s the weird part: Despite all of this, when I turned 30 and became a father in the same year, an inescapable gravity began pulling me toward wrist fake watches with Swiss movements. I experienced an almost biological desire to adorn my naked wrist with a timepiece. And it was a feeling that felt like the death of my youth: Not only was I becoming a dad, I was becoming a dad with a watch. Was the midlife-crisis Corvette next?
As I explored the feeling that pulled me toward my first watch, my existential dread subsided. What I realized I wanted out of a watch was a lasting symbol of my own identity. If I were to get all Freudian on you, I’d say I might be reckoning with my own mortality through the experience of time, but it’s not even that deep.
For any of us, high quality replica watches is a personal talisman, an accessory that actually moves, conveying expression and staying on your person despite what clothes you’re wearing. When correctly chosen, it offers a feeling of completeness that some derive from their car, their handbag, or the blockchain primate in their profile picture. That was the feeling I needed from a watch.
Figuring out what my best super clone watches would be began with training my eye toward the horological talismans of those around me. For instance my partner’s Cartier, a tiny manually wound Tank with a custom lizard strap and chipped sapphire that’s less an accessory than it is part of her being. Or my agent’s gold Rolex Day-Date, with its champagne dial that acts like a portal into the powerbroker energy that simmers beneath his jovial demeanor. Or Andy Warhol’s onyx Piaget, a watch I became fascinated by while re-branding the magazine he founded, Interview, a timepiece that captures his singular glamor, genius, and frivolous depravity. Or my late father’s kaleidoscopic rotation of 20 or so Swatches, whose exuberance and easygoing practicality are dyed deep into the fabric of how I remember him.
I knew almost immediately into my own journey that my watch was an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak. It was an instinct that felt almost too obvious – given that it’s one of a handful of the most coveted top replica watches wholesale in the world – but even after copious research into more idiosyncratic options, I couldn’t shake its grip.
What I loved most about the Royal Oak, and still do, is its brutality. This is a quality I admire across all forms of creativity, because to be brutal is to sacrifice the polite comfort of the status quo in service of new ideas. Releasing the world’s most expensive mechanical steel watch in the middle of an existential industry crisis – as 2022 Audemars Piguet fake watches did with the birth of the Royal Oak in 1972 – is brutal. Designing something for the old-school fine watchmaking market with exposed bezel screws that resemble the industrial face-covering of a diving helmet – as RO designer Gérald Genta did – is brutal. Keeping this design alive and relatively unaltered for 50 years – while the rest of the world spun through cultural phenomena from disco to punk to grunge, plus trap music, Y2K, Avatar, boy bands, Xbox, Instagram, Millennial Pink, and Squid Game – is peak brutal.
I like brutal ideas because they slap things together – in this case, a fancy watch with a weird nautical vibe – but the Royal Oak’s true poetry is its depth of craftsmanship. It is the most exquisitely handmade “industrial-looking” object I’ve ever seen. Its myriad surface textures carve its geometry into sharp relief. It has little inside jokes, like how the notches in its screw heads draw a perfect imaginary circle around the bezel. And then there’s the entire troupe of hand-finished mechanical parts that dance beneath its sapphire crystal caseback. This is how you do brutal on par with Mies Van Der Rohe’s Seagram Building or Kanye West’s Yeezus, with a level of execution that makes something transcendent.
When I actually got my China replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches – a 41mm ref. 15500 that looks like a classic 39mm 15202 on my linebacker frame – it was uncanny how fluidly it fit into my everyday life, especially for a piece of functional jewelry that trades for the price of a luxury sedan. In this funny, semi-remote work limbo era, I leave it in its box on the days when I mostly Zoom, answer emails, and play with my toddler. On the days when I’m working at the Highsnobiety office, flying around chasing the fashion calendar, or just meeting someone in a place that isn’t my study-slash-living-room, I dutifully wind and set my 15500 before my first coffee. Snapping it onto my wrist feels like pushing an imaginary power button that turns on Thom The Editor. A grownup. Maybe a little lame myself now, but wise enough that I don’t care. It’s the exact feeling I was after.
To celebrate the Royal Oak’s 50th anniversary, Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer Audemars Piguet is delighted to introduce the newest generation of its 39 mm AAA UK replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin watches (ref. 16202), which houses the Manufacture’s new selfwinding extra-thin movement, Calibre 7121. The collection comprises four models in stainless steel, platinum, as well as 18-carat pink and yellow gold—materials that have played an instrumental role in transforming the Royal Oak into an iconic collection. The four timepieces are also fitted with the dedicated Royal Oak’s “50 years” oscillating weight matched to the hue of the case. With its refined contrasts, materials, colours and dial animations, the new “Jumbo” offering pays tribute to 50 years of Royal Oak design innovation.
Calibre 7121, A Contemporary take on History
For the first time since 1972, the best fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin watches welcomes a new selfwinding hour, minute and date movement, Calibre 7121, which marks the debut of the new “Jumbo” reference 16202. This mechanism replaces Calibre 2121, the thinnest automatic movement with central rotor and date indication of its time (3.05 mm) first introduced on the Royal Oak in 1972, which retired at the end of 2021. The new movement, which measures 3.2 mm in thickness, has been specifically conceived and produced by cheap Audemars Piguet replica watches engineers and watchmakers to fit in the extra-thin 8.1 mm “Jumbo” case without altering its aesthetic and thickness. Furthermore, the driving stem is now endowed with a rapid date-corrector.
Five years of development were necessary for the realisation of the new Calibre 7121, which is endowed with more energy than its predecessor thanks to its new construction. Its larger barrel confers it more power, making it more precise for a longer period of time. It is also equipped with a contemporary central oscillating weight mounted on ball bearings that utilises two reversers 1 developed in-house to ensure bidirectional winding. Its balance wheel is fitted with inertia blocks that have been directly inserted within the balance wheel to avoid unnecessary friction. In addition, Calibre 7121 is equipped with a patented extra-thin low-energy date-setting mechanism.
Upholding fine watchmaking tradition, Calibre 7121 has been finished with refined Haute Horlogerie decorations such as “Côtes de Genève,” “traits tirés” and circular graining that can be admired through the luxury copy watches’ sapphire caseback.
A Dedicated 50th Anniversary Oscillating Weight
The new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin replica watches for sale are fitted with the dedicated anniversary openworked oscillating weight in 22-carat gold, which features the “50 years” logo and the engraved Audemars Piguet signature. For the occasion, the oscillating weight has been matched to the colour of each case – a practice usually reserved to complicated timepieces. Similarly to the case, the oscillating weight has been finished with an alternation of satin-finishing and polished chamfers. The “50 years” oscillating weight will be fitted to the high quality fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak anniversary watches throughout 2022.
Stainless Steel, A Tribute to the Original Watch
The stainless steel “Jumbo” version has retained the aesthetics of the original Royal Oak from 1972. The steel case and bracelet, hand finished with satin-brushing and polished chamfers, are complemented with the top wholesale replica watches’ iconic Petite Tapisserie dial and Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50 (“night blue, cloud 50”) hue.
The dial’s Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50 colour was originally developed by Geneva-based dial maker Stern Frères. The blue hue was obtained by immersing each dial in a galvanic bath. While the formulation of the mixture is important, the duration and temperature are both crucial. If the artisan removes the dial too early, it comes out purple, if removed too late it turns black. A thin layer of varnish mixed with a few drops of black colour (n° 50) was then applied onto the dial to protect it. The term “nuage” refers to the cloud effect the drop of black creates when it enters the protective liquid varnish. Today, the Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50 hue is achieved internally through PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) to ensure a more homogeneous colour across the collection.
Similarly to the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak super clone watches shop site from 1972, this new “Jumbo” model has kept the original baignoire or “bathtub”-shaped hour-markers and hands, which enable the luminescent material to be poured in for optimum legibility. The dial has also retained the polished gold applied AP monogram at 6 o’clock, as well as the printed “AUDEMARS PIGUET AUTOMATIC” mention at 12 o’clock. The “SWISS MADE” indication, which came to replace “SWISS” around the mid-1980s, remains positioned at 6 o’clock, with the words SWISS and MADE on either side of the hour-marker to balance the dial.
Yet, contrary to the original model, the sapphire caseback grants view of the new extra-thin movement and the dedicated anniversary oscillating weight, here in rhodium-toned 22-carat pink gold to echo the colour of the best quality replica watches’ steel case and bracelet.
Pink and Yellow Gold, Refined Tones and Contrasts
The new “Jumbo” collection includes a pink gold and a yellow gold model, both enhanced with the trademark Petite Tapisserie dial in new smoked shades. The 18-carat pink gold model is contrasted with smoked grey hues, while the 18-carat yellow gold version is illuminated with smoked yellow-gold tones. The two dials’ colours have been obtained through galvanic bath. The smoked effect, which has been achieved by meticulously spraying coloured varnish onto the rotating dial’s periphery, furthers the Tapisserie’s shimmering moiré effect.
The Petite Tapisserie pattern is achieved through a complex manufacturing process based on a rare know-how no longer taught in horology school. It consists of hundreds of small truncated pyramids with square bases carved out on the dial’s thin metal plate by an old guilloché copying machine that reproduces the motif of a matrix. Tens of thousands of diamond shapes, whose four inner faces 4 reflect the light, are simultaneously cut out in the thin grooves separating the squares in a seamless weave that creates a tapestry appearance. This process requires extreme dexterity and precision.
The Petite Tapisserie of the original Audemars Piguet Royal Oak fake watches store online was first created and produced by Stern Frères, which ceased its activities in 2016. Meanwhile, after acquiring old guilloché copying machines, Audemars Piguet started to develop the craft and techniques internally. In 2010, the first in-house Petite Tapisserie dials came out of the Manufacture’s new dedicated workshop. Today, the guilloché dials of the “Jumbo” models are entirely produced in this atelier.
The two new Swiss movements replica watches are complemented with matching gold hour-markers, Royal Oak hands and AP monogram – all endowed with the original Royal Oak’s aesthetics. In addition, the corresponding 22-carat pink or yellow gold anniversary oscillating weight can be admired through the sapphire caseback.
The first Royal Oak entirely honed from yellow gold was introduced in the collection in 1977 on the women’s Royal Oak (ref. 8638) to respond to markets’ increasing demand. Both the Royal Oak “Jumbo” (ref. 5402BA) and the so-called “Royal Oak III” in 35 mm (ref. 4100BA) also welcomed a yellow gold version a few months later. Less common at the time, pink gold appeared in the Royal Oak collection in the mid-1980s, before joining the “Jumbo” line in 2006, with reference 15202. Both precious materials are today well established across the Royal Oak collection.
950 Platinum, An Exclusive Reinterpretation
Reserved for the AP Houses, this elegant 2022 fake watches contrasts its hand-finished 950 platinum case and bracelet with a smoked green dial, whose base is decorated with a sunburst pattern. This auspicious combination introduced last year, was rewarded the best “Iconic” timepiece prize at Geneva’s Grand Prix d’Horlogerie in November 2021. The vivid green shade is obtained by adding drops of green colouring to the dial’s protective varnish. The smoked effect on the dial’s periphery accentuates the colour’s intensity, while giving it more depth.
The dial is punctuated by the traditional “Jumbo” applied hour-markers, AP monogram at 6 o’clock and baignoire-shaped Royal Oak hands, all crafted in white gold. They are echoed by the dedicated anniversary oscillating weight in rhodium-toned 22-carat pink gold visible through the sapphire caseback.
Platinum made its debut in the Royal Oak collection in the 1980s, following the introduction of yellow and white gold. The first Royal Oak “Jumbo” limited edition in platinum appeared in 1992 in celebration of both the timepiece’s 20th anniversary and the creation of the Audemars Piguet Foundation. The one-of-a-kind 39 mm Royal Oak Foundation timepiece (Model 14811), auctioned off to support the Foundation, encompassed a dial featuring a yellow gold modelled oak tree depicted by an engraving machine in an echo to the Foundation’s mission to preserve forests worldwide. Other platinum limited editions followed, such as the 39 mm Royal Oak Jubilee (Model 14802) that saw the addition of a 20-piece platinum limited edition in 1995. Over the years, these very small series have provided the Manufacture with a unique territory of expression, showcasing wide variety in terms of dial designs.
The latest 2022 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin replica watches paypal in platinum represents today one of the rare 39 mm models honed from this precious material that has made its way into the Royal Oak core collection.
50 Years of “Jumbo” Design Innovation
Upon release in 1972, the Royal Oak designed by Gérald Genta for Audemars Piguet broke prevailing aesthetic codes. Its large body of hand-finished stainless steel, its octagonal bezel secured with apparent hexagonal screws, its highly stylised integrated steel bracelet and its extra-thin selfwinding mechanism ushered in the beginning of a new fine watchmaking era in tune with changing lifestyles.
This high-end sports Swiss made fake watches was subsequently nicknamed “Jumbo” due to its 39 mm diameter that was deemed oversized by the standards of the time – an affectionate nickname Audemars Piguet has kept over the years for its selfwinding extra-thin models in 39 mm. More than an aspect of design, the Royal Oak’s large size was born of function. It is the relatively large diameter of Calibre 2121 (28 mm), coupled with the unusual monocoque or “two-part” case construction2 that imposed such measurements as the eight hexagonal screws had to be driven through the bezel, seal and case in periphery of the movement.
Only one selfwinding extra-thin model in 39 mm existed during the Royal Oak’s first 20 years, most examples of which were sold before 1982. Following its revival in 1992 on the occasion of the Royal Oak’s 20th anniversary, a wide variety of “Jumbo” models saw the light of day over the years in terms of case and bracelet materials as well as dial designs. The release of Model 15202 in 2000 marked a turning point in “Jumbo” history as it entered into the third millennium. This model reinterpreted the original codes more freely, notably with new dial colours, as well as the return of the sapphire caseback (first introduced in 1992). With its combination of tradition and modernity, this “Jumbo” version enjoyed renewed popularity and became one of the most highly coveted Royal Oak models, which contributed to raising the Royal Oak to the status of cultural icon.
This year, the “Jumbo” sees another evolution (ref. 16202) with the release of 4 new models endowed with a variety of materials and dial colours to celebrate 50 years of innovative designs. While their aesthetic codes are left unchanged compared to 15202 references, these timepieces open a new chapter in the luxury replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin watches’ history with the introduction of the Manufacture’s latest selfwinding extra-thin movement fit for an ever-more contemporary lifestyle.
AAA UK Audemars Piguet replica watches is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Royal Oak in 2022 with a flood of new references, including a redesign of the iconic Jumbo Extra-Thin and a new Extra-Thin automatic movement.
The 15202 Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin was discontinued early this month, having been part of 1:1 best Audemars Piguet fake watches’ catalogue since 2000, when an exhibition caseback was added to the Ref 15200.
However the Calibre 2121 automatic that powered it was first introduced in 1970, making it 52 years old and the only movement to have ever been used inside the Jumbo Extra-Thin.
The model’s new replacement, the 16202, focuses on Gerald Genta’s “Play of Light” design philosophy adding wider polished bevels, most noticeable on the bracelet’s flanks and mid-links.
The bracelet has also been redesigned to taper in terms of thickness the closer it gets toward the clasp. The famous octagonal bezel also features wider polished bevels allowing it to be slightly thinner, giving the high quality replica watches the appearance of sitting flatter on the wrist.
The 16202 makes its debut with four new cheap Swiss copy watches in stainless steel, rose gold, yellow gold and platinum and the all-new Calibre 7121, which is actually a little thicker than the outgoing Calibre 2121 (3.2mm compared to 3.05mm) even though the 16202 case matches the 15202’s 8.1mm thickness.
The new movement beats faster at a more conventional 4Hz (compared the 2.75Hz of the 2121), has a 55-hour power reserve (up from 40) and is comprised of 268 components.
The stainless steel variation is presented with a recognisable “Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50” dial using the familiar Petite Tapisserie pattern.
However the other three models see the introduction of smoked, gradient dials to collection pieces, both on tapisserie and flat sunray brushed dials. The rose gold model gets a smoked grey Petite Tapisserie dial, while the yellow gold model uses a smoked yellow gold-toned Petite Tapisserie dial.
Audemars Piguet replica watches for men has also revisited last year’s full platinum, green-dialed AP House exclusive, using the same configuration in the new 16202 case shape.
Everything arriving for the Royal Oak’s 50th Anniversary celebrations is distinguished with a special “50 Years Audemars Piguet” open-worked winding rotor that will only be used during 2022.
Those wanting to secure one of the anniversary pieces will have to get in quick though as just 1875 super clone watches wholesale online – across all of the new references – are being produced in total.

The 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics kick off on February 4, a little over two weeks away and a little over six months since the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics wrapped up. Time shenanigans aside, this will be – hopefully – the only time that such a discrepancy exists, which makes the luxury copy watches being produced by OMEGA in recognition of each Olympic Games an interesting souvenir of the times we’re currently in.

Fake Rolex Submariner Kermit 16610LV Watches With ‘Flat 4’ Bezel
This particular five-digit ref. 16610LV designates one of the relatively newer models, produced in the 2000s. The original wholesale replica Rolex Submariner ref. 16610 watches debuted in 1987 and was notable for its aluminum bezel insert, which would be replaced by ceramic in the next iteration. In addition, the ref. 16610 marked the shift from tritium to LumiNova and drilled to non-drilled lugs. The ref. 16610 would go on to be produced for over two decades, and in that time, one particular reference became especially popular.
In 2003, to commemorate the collection’s 50-year anniversary, Rolex super clone watches for sale introduced the ref. 16610LV you see here, today. The ref. 16610LV showcased an all-new colorway, featuring a bright green bezel and contrasting black maxi dial. Soon, this model garnered the affectionate nickname “Kermit,” after Jim Henson’s beloved character from The Muppets. By 2010, Rolex would retire the Kermit in favor of an all-new green model dubbed the “Hulk.”
The example of the Kermit currently available in Pre-Owned features the highly desirable “flat 4” bezel, without serifs, that comes from the first year of production for the top online fake Rolex 16610LV watches.
