Make no mistake: the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is one of the most iconic high quality replica watches of the last century. Its instantly recognizable form factor remains a point of contention among many collectors, and its incredible popularity with makers of elite taste makes it more of a lightning rod for hot topics. Wherever you stand on this bold timepiece, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 25820SP Perpetual Calendar certainly has a lot to offer. At a time when steel watches are sold at grotesque prices, this charming stainless steel and platinum watch with a perpetual calendar complication is unexpected and beckons us to take a closer look. So let's get started, shall we?
The "SP" in the reference number of this watch (25820SP) indicates that it is unlikely to be a combination of precious and non-precious metals. If you're wondering what it is, just take a close look at these photos and let your eyes see the answer; the platinum finish is polished to a beautiful mirror finish, while the steel is brushed. This soft contrast adds a refined aesthetic to the design, making the platinum bezel leap out of its brushed steel backdrop. For anyone who feels the Royal Oak is subtly lacking, this piece is a definite rebuttal.fake watches for sale
The contrast between the bezel and the rest of the case, as well as the integrated bracelet, helps draw the eye to the "main event" of this watch: the dial. The crisp black large plaid pattern is stylish and flattering. Audemars Piguet is known for this kind of meticulous work, and these dials require the use of specialized metalworking tools with a high degree of precision. One slip and the entire dial is ruined. Of course, it's worth taking a closer look at these beautiful close-ups to fully appreciate the craftsmanship.
The dial has four subdials. The day of the week is at 9 o'clock, opposite the date subdial at 3 o'clock. At 6 o'clock is the moon phase with the Audemars Piguet logo. Further north, we see the month and leap year indicators at 12 o'clock. The watch's calendar will remain accurate for decades to come. The classic AP baton hands indicate all this information, except for the moon phase. Applied hour markers punctuate the outer minute track.Audemars Piguet ROYAL OAK OPENWORKED PERPETUAL CALENDAR 25829OR
The perpetual calendar and the unusual metal combination are undoubtedly an important reason why this watch is so collectible today. It is powered by cal. 2120/2802. With 38 jewels and 343 components, this automatic movement has a power reserve of 40 hours. It beats at 2.75Hz or 19800 vph. The basis for this movement was originally developed by Jaeger-LeCoultre and was first introduced in 1967. Other brands such as Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin also use this movement to make watches. It's reliable and thin, which makes it the perfect starting point for an Audemars Piguet Cal. 2120/2802, added perpetual calendar function. Part of what makes the movement so slim is that it uses four peripheral ruby bearings instead of a central ball bearing, which allows the rotor to move smoothly.
The lovely rhodium-plated movement is visible through the sapphire caseback. As you might expect, finishing jobs provide more examples of specialized craftsmanship. The bridges are all hand-polished and feature polished bevels, satin-brushed edges and a pearl pattern. The rotor is skeletonized, allowing a view of the movement from any angle. This part is 21k gold.Richard Mille RM 67-02 Charles Leclerc Prototype
