As a child of the late ’80s, I’ve been finding shocking new telltale signs of growing older. Not innately understanding what the youth are doing is one example, and this comes courtesy of the new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 1017 ALYX 9SM Replica watches.
Who is that audience? A picture says a thousand words and, thankfully, Audemars Piguet and 1017 ALYX 9SM helped explain it with this telling picture just above.That is what you are looking at just above, and if it resonates with you, the new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 1017 ALYX 9SM Matthew Williams designer watches might, too.
In its own right, the Cheap Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Replica has become an absolute rockstar among watches: It successfully preceded the big-watch trend by becoming the big, bulky, and brash sibling of the slim Royal Oak. Although immensely heavy and somewhat ungainly when rendered in anything denser than titanium, it is one bewitchingly cool object irrespective of the metal it is made from.
The fifth watch is the unique 1017 ALYX 9SM Royal Oak Selfwinding Chronograph 41mm (26240SA.OO.1320SA.01), rendered in a two-tone combination of stainless steel and 18k yellow gold with a caseback engraved “Unique Piece.”
All watches feature the latest-generation Audemars Piguet movements, the Royal Oak Selfwinding 37mm sports Calibre 5909, a barely 4mm thick movement with 4Hz frequency and 60 hours of power reserve, the Audemars Piguet Replica Watches is powered by Calibre 4409, a chronograph that ditched the date display but adds a flyback function combined with a vertical clutch and column wheel, as befits a modern chronograph movement.
Anyone who’s ever worn a watch fitted with a solid-gold bracelet and case will never forget the weight that is inseparable from such a lavish and luxurious exterior, and it’s worth knowing that the Royal Oak, and especially the Royal Oak Offshore, are on the hefty end of what is already the heavyweight league of luxury watches. The good news is that the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding 37mm Replica is just 9.1mm thick all cased up, making for an impressively thin and wearable watch even in all-gold.
The 41mm wide chronograph version is 12.4mm thick — a hair thicker than a Rolex Daytona in gold — while the real heavy-hitters are the gargantuan Royal Oak Offshore 42mm pieces at 15.2 mm thick. The upside of these is that even if you are a featherweight sitting on plastic garden furniture, strong gusts of air will be considerably less likely to blow you away.
To be fair to Fake Audemars Piguet Watches, reaching a younger demographic is an immense challenge for an industry that reeks of antiquity and conservatism like few others do — and reaching it successfully without alienating those customers who have felt right at home in this old-fashioned environment is nothing short of art. Whether or not Audemars Piguet is on the right track, we’ll let everyone judge for themselves.
