When Audemars Piguet Replicalaunched the Code 11.59 last year, the best looking of the collection were the two watches with smoked enamel dials, which were the minute repeater and flying tourbillon. The base models, on the other hand, were plain and looked a bit flat.
With the same case as the standard version, the Bolshoi edition looks and feels identical on the wrist. Though the watch isn’t overly large at 41 mm by 10.7 mm, it feels a bit bigger than it measures. At the same time, it is also feels solid in the hand.
The sapphire crystal is curved on two planes – something Audemars Piguet Replica Watches China often cites as a key feature of the watch – that creates an interesting but not noteworthy optical effect. Fortunately, the crystal is coated with an antireflective coating, so the curvature doesn’t affect legibility at all.
Simultaneously, the complicated case construction means the nooks and crannies accumulate dust and grime swiftly – which you also notice when it’s on the wrist.
The Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica dial is a splendid piece of craftsmanship. It has the same look that other brands usually execute with lacquer, but instead in fired enamel.
A rich, compelling blue at the centre, the dial darks towards the edges, with an even graduation of tone around the dial. Such an effect is achieved not with darker enamel, but a slightly thicker layer of enamel at the edges.
The raised flange for the minute numerals is black lacquered, rather than enamel, but the colour matches the Fake Audemars Piguet dial well, resulting in an almost-seamless transition from dial to flange.
An addition to the line that is not meant to replace any existing model, the new 34 mm watch is now the smallest mechanical Replica Royal Oak for ladies, with the smallest, 33 mm model being quartz, and the next-largest automatic having a 37 mm case.
The new watch fills a gap in the diverse Royal Oak line-up – a watch compact enough for ladies but with a mechanical movement.
While the new 34 mm model is not explicitly described as a women’s watch, it is in all but name, as Audemars Piguet Replica already has a 37 mm model as the medium-sized men’s Royal Oak. That said, the proportions of the 34 mm case remind me of the Royal Oak ref. 4100 of the 1970s and 1980s, which was then a large-sized men’s watch and 36 mm in diameter, not too much larger than the new model.
Importantly, it has a mechanical movement – long absent for the ladies’ Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica – and the versions with the diamond-set bezels offer a bit of bling to go along with the iconic design.
The steel version with a diamond-set bezel is the only one to have the blue-grey dial – the most popular colour for the Audemars Piguet Replica Watch collection at large – while the rest are equipped with silver dials.
The most affordable Replica Watches of any kind offered by Jaeger-LeCoultre, the Reverso One is an elegant watch for ladies with a modest amount of diamonds and a quartz movement. Originally available only with a silver dial, the new Reverso One Red Wine adds a more lively colour to the range of options.
While the quartz movement won’t appeal to a watch aficionado, it makes sense for someone who wants a good-looking, classic design without the hassle of a mechanical movement.
The launch version of the Reverso One was plain, with an ordinary silver dial dial. The Red Wine livens things up, and does it with more detail than would be expected on an entry-level quartz copy watch. The dial has a stamped sun-ray guilloche motif that’s covered in translucent red lacquer, creating the rich finish.
As with many Reverso models, the flip side of the case is polished and left empty for personalisation. The options for personalisation includes a set of initials that Jaeger-LeCoultre Replicacan engrave for a small fee. And the steel case is set with 27 diamonds for a bit of sparkle.
