The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Grand Prix watch replica brings you three similarly styled models that will be produced in a total lot of 2475 pieces.The most exclusive among them is the Ref. 26290PO.OO.A001VE.01 model.
The ice-cold color scheme is contrasted with electric-blue dial featuring a “negative-printed” version of the famous Mega Tapisserie motif and bright red accents both on the 30-minute chronograph totalizer dial and a part of the inner bezel.
Its winding crown and pushpieces are in white gold and the flange is in silvered aluminum.Its body is machined out of 950 platinum, which is both denser (hence heavier) and more durable than the more common white gold alloys and has its bezel and chronograph pushpiece guards made of forged carbon and black ceramic.
Only 75 of these AP Royal Oak Offshore Grand Prix copy watches will be made.
The second in the rank is the Ref. 26290RO.OO.A001VE.01 model.
Instead of platinum for the body and white gold for the crown and pushpieces, it sports respective elements made in 18-carat rose gold. It also has slightly different –looking somehow cheaper– color scheme of black and white with a part of the chronograph subdial at 9 o’clock painted yellow. Its tachymetric scale is printed in bright red matching the color of the central second hand.
Limited at 1750 units, the Ref. 26290IO.OO.A001VE.01 watch is more accessible to fans with thick wallets and, at the same time, looks more interesting to well-funded geeks, because ideologically it is the closest to the last year’s Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Carbon Concept Tourbillon and Chronograph watch.
Instead of gold or platinum, its case is made of forged carbon with its crown, pushpiece guards and pushpieces themselves, as well as case-back with a sapphire display glass, are made of titanium.
I just wonder how much it will cost when it hits the stores and boutiques.
Like the last year’s Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Queens Road model, the series is powered by the same AP 3126/3840 automatic caliber.
AP plans to limit the Audemars Piguet copy watch’s production to more reasonable 650 pieces.
