Rebellion meets technology in the history of the UK Best Quality Replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept

The word “concept” is something that is often associated with the world’s most enthralling works of art. A concept album can tell a very deliberate story, or explore a particular theme or idea in wondrous detail. A concept car is usually shown to represent the pinnacle of a designer’s imagination that’s invariably watered down should it make it into production.

So when Audemars Piguet replica announced a concept watch in 2002, what was the world to think? Does it represent some bigger idea? Can I actually buy one? Why does it need to exist? Unpacking the high quality fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept isn’t instantly intuitive, but it begins with rebellion, technology and ingenuity.
If you’re unfamiliar with the story of the original steel case copy Audemars Piguet Royal Oak introduction in 1972, here’s a quick debrief. Seiko unveil their quartz-powered Astron in 1969, shaking the foundations of the watch industry. As the masses flocked towards the technology for its affordable reliability, the Swiss traditionalists were brought to their knees.

Many brands held on for dear life, some even releasing their own quartz offerings, but many more collapsed. Audemars Piguet realised that their struggles didn’t have to be the end, but an opportunity for reinvention. Enter designer Gérald Genta. Together, they release the Royal Oak.

A luxury Audemars Piguet copy wristwatch made not of precious metals but simple steel. Not fuelled by dainty elegance but harsh, industrial lines. No matter how many people insisted it was an insult to high horology, the trick worked and the legend was cemented.
It took over 20 years for the Royal Oak to outdo its own controversy, but it managed with its ‘90s evolution — the Royal Oak Offshore. Bigger, bolder and more bad-ass, the Offshore honed in on the ultra-masculine swagger carried by the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger, and “The Beast” was eventually released in a variety of wildly vibrant colours. The story goes that Genta stormed into the AP offices, accusing them of killing his baby. Although it faced all the same criticism as the ‘70s original, the watch-loving public had grown used to being shocked, and the Offshore soon found its popularity.

This is where the Royal Oak Concept comes in, and also where the tale becomes quite philosophical. If someone was to ask you to think of a 1930s watch design, you’d get a visual picture in your mind with ease. How about the 1960s? Even easier. The ‘80s? Digital Casios galore. But, if someone asked you to think of a watch which encapsulates the ‘90s and 2000s, then the modern day, the answer is elusive. Even the Swiss movement fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore, as challenging as it was, didn’t stray all that far from the look of the original ‘70s release. High watchmakers had a responsibility to keep their eyes on the future, to set the trends that would be remembered for the decades to come. On that front, they were failing. Yet again, Audemars Piguet decided the onus was on them.
In 2002, the Concept is brought to life. Although it’s octagonal bezel and nut-shaped crown still gave it away as a Royal Oak, nothing like it had ever been seen before. Wrought from aerospace-grade cobalt alloy Alacrite, the intended effect of this openwork watch was clearly to be completely alien. A snaking balance bridge gave extraordinary resistance to G-forces, enough to survive a crash in an F1 car. The Dynamographe displayed how much torque the mainspring had, so you could see how the timekeeping was affected by the power reserve running low. The road to evoking the modern era wasn’t to make slow refinements upon previous models, but to unapologetically embrace futurism, post-modernism, escapism, and to continue with their track record of shocking the world. The watch was still a blend of past and present, but only in its manufacture. With the help of CAD (Computer-Aided Design) programs and CNC machining, the resulting watch could then be given the traditional hand-finishing treatments expected of a timepiece that cost the same as a supercar.

Not many people understood the Concept, but that was to be expected of a watch designed to be ahead of its time. A hulking 44mm case with stretching integrated lugs and bracelet curved to conform only to the biggest of wrists, otherwise demanding complete dedication in order to wear it, and not have it wear you. Of course, development didn’t end there. The 2008 Royal Oak Concept Carbon took the watch into the realm we’re more familiar with today, breaking down barriers between the case, dial, and movement with a darker colour scheme that made it a bit more friendly to the human eye. The 2011 Concept GMT Tourbillon introduces two of the biggest themes we see in the modern Concept range, firstly with a GMT display at 3 o’clock. This is representative of a newer generation purchasing these watches, those with younger hearts and minds who are more likely to be flying around the world on a monthly basis. The second theme is that of highly architectural dial design, now considering exactly how the openwork sections flow into the dial, and how the light will play off different facets depending on its angle of view. The experience of viewing a Royal Oak Concept was now completely different whenever you flexed your wrist.

It seemed as though Swiss made clone Audemars Piguet had reached a thematic sweet-spot with the Concept, and aesthetic changes would no longer be enough to satisfy the cravings of evolution. In 2015, the Royal Oak Concept Laptimer Michael Schumacher set out to achieve an entirely new complication. The humble chronograph couldn’t hold a candle to what they came up with. With this watch, despite the deceptively ‘minimal’ dial, you could time consecutive laps of a motor race, for as many laps as you needed, down to one fifth of a second. As if that wasn’t enough, the very next year the Supersonnerie was released, incorporating a minute repeater that took eight years to develop, alongside the “standard” tourbillon and chronograph.

When You Start To Realize You Love The UK 44 MM Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Replica Watches For Sale

The best quality replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore has been incredibly popular since its introduction in 1993. At some point — seems like ages ago — almost everyone neglected the regular Royal Oak, including the 15202, and went completely mad on all the Offshore variation. The Safari themed Offshore was everywhere, for example. Today, I’ll take a look at the Royal Oak Offshore 44mm chronographs.

For a long time, I neglected the Royal Oak Offshore. Too loud, too flashy, too much everything, basically. That changed when we visited one of the biggest Royal Oak Offshore collectors in The Netherlands in 2018 and did this long report on the original Royal Oak Offshore, also known as ‘The Beast’. If you haven’t read it, you should.

Playing around with those Royal Oak Offshore watches, I realized this watch is a classic too. And that they actually still look good, even those very first 1993 models. When Audemars Piguet gave us a call that they had some new Royal Oak Offshore models in, we didn’t have to think long. Let’s have a look at them.
44 MM Replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore
We had the opportunity to go hands-on with the Royal Oak Offshore 44mm in three variations. The bi-color ROO Chronograph with reference 26405NR.OO.A002CA.01, the green ROO Chronograph with reference 26405CE.OO.A056CA.01, and the ROO Chronograph in blue, with reference 26405CE.OO.A030CA.01. My eye was drawn to the Royal Oak Offshore 44mm with a touch of gold, of course. Aside from aesthetics, these three Royal Oak Offshore 44mm chronographs have the same technical specifications.
Materials
It basically boils down to a preference for colors, and use of materials. When gold is not for you, Audemars Piguet offers a plethora of variations of the Swiss movement fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 44mm. Some models in the catalog even include a colorful rubber camouflage strap. As for materials, besides gold, there are variations in steel and ceramic. We have three black ceramic versions for our hands-on review. One in green, one in blue, and one with 18ct pink gold. All have the same 44mm diameter case, which measures 14.4mm in height.

High-Tech
As you can see in the picture above, the Royal Oak Offshore 44mm is quite different from the monobloc case the Royal Oak once was. It consists of multiple layers. A ceramic bezel, rubber seal, ceramic mid-case, titanium push-piece guards, and a titanium case back. And two sapphire crystals, of course. The Royal Oak Offshore 44mm 26405NR has a pink gold case back, with sapphire. All versions have a rubber strap with the textile motif. A stiff looking but rather comfortable strap.
Caliber 3126 / 3840
I used to have a Royal Oak Chronograph about 10 years ago, it was powered by caliber 2385. It is still used for some of the chronograph models, and it is based on an F. Piguet movement. This top quality replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore has a piggyback movement, meaning it has a base caliber (3126) with a chronograph module (3840) on top. It consists of 365 parts in total and has a power reserve of 50 hours. The ticking speed of caliber 3126 / 3840 is 21600vph (~ 3 Hz).

There are two notes I’d like to make. I sound like Captain Obvious here, but AP should really stop using chronograph modules in this price category. I am not sure what is against using their chronograph caliber 4401 movement (also used in the Code 11:59), as it has more power reserve and a higher frequency. And a fly-back function, but that can be taken our (or left in).
Aesthetically speaking, there are also advantages of caliber 4401. It doesn’t have the date disc in the “basement”, so no need for a cyclops on the date. Also, the 4401 movement has a diameter of 32mm versus 29.92mm of the piggyback movement. A larger movement diameter is more pleasing when looking at the transparent case back of the Royal Oak Offshore 44mm.
Mega Tapisserie
Where the original Royal Oak 5402 has a subtle Clous-de-Paris on the dial, the Royal Oak Offshore always had a somewhat larger motif. But on later Royal Oak Offshore watches, it became proper large. Audemars Piguet refers to it as “mega tapisserie”. But, it suits the watch. The dial of these perfect fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 44mm chronograph actually shows a lot of detail. Applied Arabic numerals, “mega tapisserie”, sub dials with circular grain, applied rims around the subdials, and nicely faceted hands. Even the cyclops on the date aperture fits into all of this.
Audemars Piguet refers to the dials as “smokey”. So above, you will see the smokey blue, the others being smokey green and smokey grey. It provides even more depth to the dial, on top of the “mega tapisserie” motif. I am a massive fan of the color blue, but the green and bicolor are my favorite AP Royal Oak Offshore 44mm chronographs.
