It was time for a masculine Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica watch, as he had noticed that women were wearing men’s pieces. Thus, he wanted a watch that would be an archetype of masculinity. Such extreme proportions, in fact, that women would refrain from buying or wearing one.
It used rubber for the crown and pushers, as well as a visible gasket between the case and the bezel. These are all things we wouldn’t even bat an eye at today. Interestingly, the first Luxury Royal Oak Offshore Replica also had a Faraday cage to protect the movement from magnetic fields. A soft-iron plate was mounted underneath the dial, while a soft-iron inner case surrounded the caliber 2126/2840.
This movement was based on the often-used Jaeger-LeCoultre 888 caliber with a chronograph module by Dubois-Dépraz. After the first 200 Offshore examples, High Quality Audemars Piguet Replica started using the caliber 2226/2840, which was based on the Jaeger-LeCoultre 889/1 with a Dubois-Dépraz chronograph module. Combined with the heavy stainless steel bracelet, the watch weighs approximately 223 grams. Consequently, it’s not for the faint-hearted. Later gold and platinum models weighed even more.
In addition to the very visible gasket underneath the octagonal bezel, there is also a rubber-like material on the Replica Watches China pushers and crown. This material is actually referred to as Therban, a high-performance elastomer that is resistant to, among other things, hot water and steam.

The production period of a Quality Royal Oak Offshore Replica Watch is often referred to as an [X]-series, where [X] stands for a letter that corresponds to certain production years. The Royal Oak Offshore reference 25721 starts as D-series. The production of the D-series Audemars Piguet watches had already started in 1992, but of course, the Royal Oak Offshore actually came to market in 1993. The first number of “The Beast” is D23744 and the last watch is the D97184, but these ranges are also used for other Audemars Piguet watches.
Besides the absent “Offshore” engraving on the case back of the first 100, the different movement in the first 200, and the little change in the Tapisserie pattern on the dial, you will also find that the bracelet has been updated over the years. The clasp on the first models was rather simple compared to the later ones, and the links of the bracelet are also different. On the D-series, the links have four screws. On the E-series and later models, however, that has been reduced to two screws.
On this Audemars Piguet grade 1 Replica Watch, we also find a case back with a sapphire crystal, so 20 lucky owners can admire the movement. The bracelet of this model also changed again, and the clasp looks a bit more up-to-date.
As you can see in the images below, the boxes also changed throughout the years. Swiss AP Replica went from using very specific octagonal boxes for the first D- and E-series to the regular wooden box the brand used for all other Royal Oak models.
