The combination of titanium and platinum – more titanium and less platinum – is not a new one, with AP having added platinum accents to various Royal Oak models in the 1990s and early 2000s, most prominently with the Best Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica Watches perpetual calendar. And just last year the face-lifted Royal Oak Chronograph was executed in the same two metals. But the combination has never been applied to the classic, 39mm Royal Oak “Jumbo”, arguably the one to have and typically only available in steel, rose or yellow gold.
The platinum bits, namely the bezel and twin centre links of the bracelet, are distinguished with their mirror polished surface. The Luxury Replica Watches shiny parts catch the lights nicely, though are obviously prone to scratches and fingerprints.
Though the case is titanium, the surface finishing is practically indistinguishable from that of the steel Royal Oak Fake Watches, which is to say it is done to an exceptionally high standard. The alternating brushed and polished surfaces are just magnificent.
The fact that the case is mostly titanium gives it lightness, though the disparity between this and the steel model is not pronounced, since the steel version is relatively thin and light to begin with.
The Cheap Replica Watches dial is equally unusual, having a graduated finish that AP labels “smoked”, and which other brands might term dégrade or fumé. It’s blue in the centre and darkens outwards, with the edges being almost black. The blue isn’t quite the same grey-blue as on the classic Royal Oak Extra-Thin, being slightly brighter.
While the Audemars Piguet Replica colour is different, the texture remains the same. It’s finished with the Royal Oak’s classic chequerboard tapisserie guilloche, which is still done manually on a rose engine.
