Producing some of the best luxury mechanical watches in the world since 1875, Audemars Piguet long ago established itself as the premier Swiss manufacturer of mechanical timepieces – a reputation that they haven’t surrendered in almost 150 years.
And while our Audemars Piguet Swiss replica watches and timepieces don’t have the same kind of pedigree or long-term tradition has the “real thing”, they are made using the same kind of high quality materials, the same kind of reliable Swiss movements, and with the same attention to detail while helping you save thousands and thousands of dollars.
A Quick History of Audemars Piguet Watches and Timepieces
The Audemars Piguet company was established in Switzerland as a partnership between Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet in 1875, both of whom had worked as watchmakers for years and years prior to the establishment of this new company.
Wanting to show off skills and technical knowledge that they had perfected over decades as Swiss watchmakers, they quickly began producing designs that showed off the incredibly complex watch movements that they had engineered themselves.
Later, the company would go on to specialize in the regulation of watch movements – a position in the industry that help them garner a reputation for producing some of the most accurate luxury timepieces on the planet (a distinction that they maintained today).
The company is probably most well-known for producing the Royal Oak line of luxury wristwatches, a line that was first introduced in 1972. Other models are also available – including the Milenary and the Jules Audemars – but it’s the Royal Oak line that draws most people’s attention to Audemars Piguet.
Here’s How Our AP Replicas Stack Up Against The “Real Thing”
Our Audemars Piguet replica watches are inspired by that same Royal Oak product lineup, featuring the same kind of design elements in the same design language that has made the Audemars Piguet style of timepieces so distinct from all others.
All of our AP Royal Oak replicas feature the same iconic face as the “legitimate” Audemars Piguet watches, feature the same kinds of bezels, the same mechanical and industrial looking dials, and over the same kind of minimalist and industrial aesthetic that these watches have become known for around the world.
High-end construction materials, including the highest quality stainless steel available – the same as the genuine article in many circumstances – are used throughout the production of these timepieces, with the same kinds of finishes, the same kinds of hardware, and the same kinds of crystal dials designed to mimic the genuine article just as much as possible.
The dimensions of all of our Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replicas are 1:1 mimics as well. Very often, the weight of our replicas is only a gram or two away from the genuine article, which makes everything spotting one of these Audemars Piguet watches as a replica almost impossible aside from an up close and personal inspection from a trained jeweler actually looking for something to be wrong in the first place.
In fact, many of the customers we’ve had purchase our AP Royal Oak replicas are doing so to protect their investment in the “real deal” – wearing our replicas while out and about without ever worrying about the daily wear and tear, dents, and dings that would tank the value of a legitimate Audemars Piguet timepiece.
And no one is the wiser!Materials
As we highlighted above, the materials that we use in each and every one of our replica timepieces are as close to the genuine article as possible while still keeping the total cost of our timepieces as affordable as we can.
The overwhelming majority of Royal Oak options from Audemars Piguet utilize 316F stainless steel as they are case material, and we do as well, offering the same kinds of finishes as the direct from Audemars Piguet options to give you that total mimic look collectors are after.
Our crystal dials are made of Swiss standard scratch proof and anti-reflective sapphire crystal, with plenty of protection from daily wear and tear while keeping your AP replica looking as much like the real thing as possible.
The movement inside of our Audemars Piguet replicas is obviously going to differ from the real article, but we do use an incredibly accurate Swiss ETA Valjoux Working Chronograph movement that has been modified to take advantage of 3126/3840 Bridges in each and every one of our Royal Oak replicas.
This guarantees that you get the same kind of accuracy you are expecting from a legitimate Audemars Piguet timepiece without the sky high price tag associated with these luxury watches. Talk about a win-win situation!
The straps or bracelets that come with our AP replicas also use only the finest construction materials. Some of our Royal Oak options come with a genuine black hornback crocodile strap with hand stitching throughout, whereas others utilize a high quality medical bracelet option – whichever makes the most sense for that particular Royal Oak timepiece to make it look as much like the option directly from Audemars Piguet as possible.
You’ll have the opportunity to swap out straps and bracelets should you wish to do so in the future, giving your Royal Oak replica your own twist and your own flair. We include a single fold AP Insignia class with each and every one of our replica watches that can be placed on any of your straps or bracelets, helping you customize your AP without losing any of its distinctive identifying marks a long way.
At the end of the day, you will be able to save (quite literally) tens of thousands of dollars by purchasing our Audemars Piguet replica timepieces compared to the genuine article directly from this luxury Swiss watchmaker.
A “Plain Jane” Royal Oak timepiece can regularly sell for $30,000 (US) or more where that same watch can be purchased directly from our replica timepiece collection for just a bit less than $900 US.
It doesn’t get much better than that!
Regardless of whether or not you’re looking to pick up a replica watch that is a total clone of a genuine article that you own already from Audemars Piguet, or if your dreams of owning an AP timepiece are otherwise likely to stay dreams because of their sky high price tag, we invite you to pick up one of our replica watches from our collection.
You’ll find it to be an almost perfect replica in every way (outside of the movement inside the watch, something never visible to anyone on willing to pop open the case) and at a fraction of the price!
