Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica has created new versions of the Royal Oak Offshore, both with in-house movements. The watches come in either 42mm cases, with the subdials at 6, 9, and 12 and with the date at 3 , or in 43mm cases, with a 3, 6, 9 subdial layout, and the date at 4:30.
The 43mm models use the caliber 4401 chronograph movement first introduced in the Code 11.59 chronograph, and the 42mm models use the 4404, which is basically the 4401, but reconfigured to support the subdial and date layout of the original Offshore models.
The 42mm Audemars Piguet Replica Watch from this year have retained the magnifier, although since the movement is an integrated chrono you don’t really need it.
The new 43mm Royal Oaks are, of the two options available with the 4401/4404, certainly more contemporary in look and feel and of course, this is by design. While it’s taken 25 years the new calibers are a very welcome update to the design. The calibers are 32mm in diameter and 6.8mm thick and definitely feel a better fit for what is still a fairly large, eye-catching timepiece.
The new Audemars Piguet grade 1 replica watches movement, aside from looking like a good fit through the display back, also has an overall design and layout that suits the 43mm Offshore very well. It’s clearly intended to impress the wearer as a contemporary caliber, rather than an exercise in horological nostalgia.
This is a vertical clutch design, with a 70-hour power reserve, a tooth profile for the column wheel designed to minimize friction, ceramic bearings on the rotor, and a single, integrated reset hammer.
The three Exact Audemars Piguet replica watches shown here are in steel with a black dial, and titanium with a blue or grey dial. The titanium models make wearing an Offshore about as low impact weight-wise as an Offshore is ever likely to be – they’re extremely comfortable – but there is something very handsome about the steel model with the black ceramic bezel.
