The World’s Most Desirable Top Swiss Replica Watches UK Are Finally Coming Down In Price

Luxury replica watches have never been more a part of the zeitgeist than they are right now in 2022. From song lyrics to social media and even your local pub – more people are talking about high-end timepieces than ever before.

Some brands and models get more love than others, though. Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe, Rolex… It’s brands like these that have captured peoples’ imaginations – and wallets. In-demand stainless steel luxury sports fake watches wholesale like the Royal Oak, Nautilus and Daytona respectively have become some of the hardest watches to acquire on the planet.

Prices on the aftermarket for these models have long reflected that, too. We’re talking 200%, sometimes even 300% markups in some instances, with prices having steadily climbed over the last 3 years. Until now, at least. Italian watch expert @watchanalytics has observed that recent market moves suggest we’ve hit the peak of best UK replica watches speculation for these popular models – and now things are going to swing the other way.

“In the last month, the [upwards price] trend of the most sought after Swiss movements copy watches on the market has reversed its direction for the first time,” they say, explaining that we’re currently witnessing a substantial market correction.

They point to the perfect replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and the Patek Philippe Nautilus watches specifically, sharing that on average prices for these two models have fallen by 7.3% since the beginning of March. It’s one hell of a correction, considering how ascendant prices for these two ‘Holy Trinity’ sports cheap super clone watches have been in recent memory.

@watchanalytics interprets this market shift like so: “as soon as owners observed a decline in the prices they flocked to the market to sell and this led to an oversupply which in turn caused an even greater drop in prices.

This phenomenon can also be clearly observed from the rather important differences in the graph between the listing prices (the offer prices) and the real market prices.”

They caution, however, that “at the moment it is not a market crash situation but a period of price adjustment. These are phases that alternate in all markets… [2022 fake watches are] no exception.”

Indeed, one only has to look at the direction Rolex prices are moving in to see that what’s happening with AAA Audemars Piguet replica watches and Pateks might not be indicative of the market as a whole. Prices for popular Rollies like the Submariner, Daytona and GMT-Master II haven’t weakened one bit.

Indeed, prices for the latter have seen particularly sharp price increases, perhaps in part to the hype surrounding Rolex’s unveiling of a new GMT-Master II at Watches & Wonders 2022.

Again, whether we’re talking about Royal Oaks or high quality Rolex fake watches, it’s worth pointing out that ask prices almost never equal market prices – so just because some chancer wants $100,000 for their beat-up old Rolex Air-King doesn’t mean it’ll ever sell for something even close to that figure.

Still, fingers crossed that what’s happening with Nautiluses (or is that Nautili?) and Royal Oaks is indicative of a forthcoming, broader market shift that’ll see prices get less silly for some of the world’s most popular replica watches shop site.

The New Top UK Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin 16202ST Replica Watches To Replace The 15202ST

Kill your darlings is what they say and around the same time last year, Patek Philippe killed the 5711 and Audemars Piguet killed the über-popular 15202. Within a few weeks, the two most popular AAA UK replica watches on planet Earth were discontinued and that caused some turbulence in the world of luxury Swiss fake watches. AP’s Royal Oak Extra-Thin a.k.a. ‘Jumbo’ is now being replaced by the new reference 16202. Has the Jumbo changed a lot? Well, yes and no. It’s equipped with a new movement, but more importantly, the 16202 still looks very much like a Royal Oak Jumbo. Let’s take a closer look at the all-new stainless steel best replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin 16202ST watches.

For the first time since 1972, the Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin will be equipped with a different movement, and that’s actually pretty big news! So far, the RO Jumbo has been equipped with the Jaeger-LeCoultre cal. 920 ébauche and Swiss made Audemars Piguet copy watches named it calibre 2121 (for the version with date, while the version without date was named calibre 2120.) The other two brands of the “Holy Trinity”, Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin, also used this movement albeit they baptized it with different calibre numbers. Audemars Piguet replica watches for men also used this movement in almost every (self-winding) perpetual calendar (except for the ref. 25800.) For fifty years, it has been a great movement for the Royal Oak Jumbo. Reliable and sturdy enough despite its thinness. But it’s time for something new…

And that “something new” comes in the shape of a new extra-thin movement. The new Swiss movements fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin 16202ST watches is not equipped with just another movement. No, it now comes with a brand new, in-house developed and manufactured movement named calibre 7121. This calibre offers a longer power reserve, an increased frequency and comes with a quick-set date. And these are useful improvements!

    Calibre 7121 vs. 2121

        power reserve increased from 40h -> 55h

        frequency increased from 19,800vph -> 28,800vph

        thickness from 3.05mm -> 3.2mm

        quick-set date

        rotor now mounted on ball bearings

        balance wheel with directly inserted inertia blocks

The increased power reserve is achieved by a longer mainspring, and that’s just really pleasant as the 40h autonomy when fully wound might have been a tad outdated these days. The 55h of power reserve that the new calibre delivers stretches the autonomy up, to more than 2 days. It also allows for AP to get a more stable rate of a longer period and thus improving its chronometric performances.

At least as important is the increased frequency. Going from 19,800 vibrations/hour to a modern 4Hz (28,800 vibrations/hour) is another opportunity for AP’s watchmakers to regulate the perfect replica watches to a higher precision. And the now available quick-set date is probably the best improvement altogether.

The new calibre 7121 is a bit larger and thicker than its predecessor, but this has no impact on the case size of the new Royal Oak ‘Jumbo’. The diameter is now 29.6mm (over 28.0mm for cal. 2121) and thickness increased to 3.2mm (versus 3.05mm for cal. 2121.) Another important improvement on the movement side is that the central rotor is mounted on ball bearings, allowing for less wear and tear. The balance wheel in the new movement is fitted with inertia blocks that have been directly inserted within the balance wheel to avoid unnecessary friction. And last but not least, the new movement is equipped with a patented extra-thin low-energy date-setting mechanism.

And finally… the rotor will be adorned with a styled “50 years” logo. But this will only be featured on the cheap super clone watches manufactured this year! As of 2023, the rotor on all Royal Oaks will not feature that cool “50 years” logo anymore!

The lineage in reference numbers

The reference number 16202ST seems like a logical successor to the previous RO Jumbo ref. 15202ST. However, the lineage of reference numbers for the Royal Oak Jumbo didn’t always evolve as logical as this time.

Originally introduced in 1972 as the reference 5402ST, it disappeared from the catalogue for some ten years until it was relaunched, in 1992, by the references 14802ST (Jubilee edition for the 20th anniversary) and 15002ST (regular model.) While the 14802ST added a see-through case-back, and subsequently a slightly thicker case, the reference 15002ST remained pretty close to the original design and proportions of the ref. 5402ST.

Eight years later, in 2000, AP introduced the reference 15202 that would replace the other previous references. This replica watches wholesale featured again a see-through caseback, however, its dial featured the so-called Grande Tapisserie or big ‘cobble stone’ pattern (or Clous de Paris as it’s called in French.) In 2012, the 15202 was refreshed, mainly bringing back the smaller Petite Tapisserie pattern like on the original 5402ST.

One factor, which might seem like a small thing, but it certainly isn’t a small thing to collectors (!!), is the position of the AP logo. On the original 5402ST, the AP logo was positioned between the dial’s centre and the 6 o’clock marker. This was the case for the A series, B series and maybe some of the C series, however exactly how & when is not very clear… Let’s say that towards the end of the 1970s, around the C series and D series production, the AP logo was transferred to the 12 o’clock position. As of the revamped 15202ST that was introduced in 2012, the AP logo was back at the 6 o’clock position again. And for the 16202ST, the AP logo remains at the 6 o’clock position. This, plus the lack of a second hand, make it easy to identify the online fake Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin watches among other Royal Oak models.

The most important of the new 16202ST is that it still looks very much like the 5402ST, the 14802ST, the 15002ST and the 15202ST… and that’s a good thing! While the engine inside changed, for the better, the looks and proportions of the replica watches store site remain pretty much identical. The diameter still measures 39mm and its thickness is still 8.1mm. The bracelet remains the same and is still hand-finished with satin-brushing and polished chamfers. The bracelet is closed with a double folding clasp, identical to the one on reference 15202ST. In short, it’s almost entirely the same as the previous generation, at least for the external parts.

Other factors that did not change at all are the dial, the markers and the hands. The dial colour remains the same blue, which fake Audemars Piguet watches paypal calls Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50 – which, translated to English gives “night blue, cloud 50”. Also, the hour markers, the minuterie (minute markers), the applied AP logo, the “Audemars Piguet automatic” printing and the date window are all the same. Although the latter moved a fraction of a millimetre towards the edge of the dial, but this is almost impossible to see…

At a later moment, we’ll put the 5402ST, the 15202ST and the 16202ST next to one another.

Availability & Price

The best quality replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin 16202ST watches is released as part of the permanent collection. There are also 3 other 16202 models in precious metals released, but we’ll come back on this topic soon. The steel version reference 16202ST.OO.1240ST.01 will be available (well, if ever you can get one…) as of February 2022 and is priced at EUR 32,400 (incl. taxes).

The 34MM Black Ceramic UK AAA Replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Watches That Blew Everyone’s Minds

It all started in the Women’s Novelties section. Summer had arrived in New York, and Cara Barrett and I had popped over to Audemars Piguet’s New York headquarters to see a new piece before its public release. The room was buzzing over one particular watch, a 34mm black ceramic 1:1 replica Audeamrs Piguet Royal Oak watches. “Ooh, ceramic!” everyone seemed to be whispering. I didn’t quite understand why.

Granted, I was new to the game. I’d recently founded the blog and Instagram account Dimepiece to celebrate women in Swiss fake watches, and I was learning along the way. Dimepiece was strong on the culture side of top UK replica watches, which I felt had been underrepresented (especially for women), but I wasn’t exactly the kind of enthusiast who could rattle off reference numbers, and I couldn’t quite figure out why this Royal Oak was so different from any other. I feigned enough enthusiasm to match the mood of those surrounding me, ooo-ing and aah-ing as I momentarily replaced the still-fresh Cartier Tank Française on my wrist with the new AP.

While it didn’t blow me away, I was struck by its near-weightlessness and took a few steps toward the window to see it in the natural light (and to take a wrist shot, obviously). As I snapped a photo, the best Audemars Piguet copy watches representative gently warned me against posting this on social media, as this watch was under embargo until next month. I made a mental note to google the formal definition of embargo, but understood then the privilege bestowed upon me in this preview. A clandestine watch meeting! A secret to keep!

I tucked away that memory until early July, when Audemars Piguet’s new releases were no longer my own little secret but rather the talk of the town. I scrolled on to read Danny Milton’s coverage. Danny declared it a heavy hitter, reporting on its material, features, and size. “If this was a 37mm watch,” he concluded, “it might very well be the Swiss made replica watches of the Summer – nay the year.” I was once again taken aback. Sure it was nice, but watch of the year? What was I missing? What separates the sheep from a GOAT?

The Royal Oak

Before creating Dimepiece, I first became acquainted with the Royal Oak in 2019, learning about it during my editorial stint at Sotheby’s. YouTube became my best friend (“How To Pronounce AUDEMARS PIGUET like a FRENCH Native Speaker”), and the Watches Department was gracious enough to let me try on various high quality fake watches available at auction. I soon discovered the name Gérald Genta, the man behind the design.

In the early 1970s, Genta, or “GG” as I like to call him, was tasked with creating a new luxury replica watches for AP. What resulted was a design that changed the industry indefinitely: A sports watch, in steel, with just as much luxurious sex appeal as a dressy gold counterpart. The choice of steel here was to communicate a more utilitarian approach, but because GG’s design was so intricate, the price tag remained sky-high when it eventually debuted in 1972. A steel sports watch that cost more than a gold Patek? Damn right.

In time, this peculiar creation emerged as a diamond in the rough thanks to its octagonal diver-helmet-inspired design, its clean tapisserie dial, and that sweet integrated bracelet. It sold, and sold, and sold; and now it transcends personal taste, with everyone from LeBron James to Shawn Mendes rocking one. Good for them. But what about the women?

The Ladies’ Royal Oak

The first ladies’ Swiss movements fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches was designed by Jacqueline Dimier, debuting just four years after the original dropped. Dimier joined Audemars Piguet in 1975, having developed her own personal style independently designing jewelry in the ’60s, and took the time to play with GG’s mold-breaking design. Paying homage to the distinct character of its predecessor, the lady Royal Oak managed to strike a balance between sporty and elegant. Coming in at 29mm, Dimier’s Reference 8638 was a far cry from the typical jewelry-like women’s replica watches for sale. It has undergone several iterations since then and has become a real IYKYK item for talent like Mary-Kate Olsen, Serena Williams, Megan Thee Stallion, January Jones, and of course Cara Barrett. Icons only.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Dimier’s design in 2016, AP launched a 33mm version with Carolina Bucci, famous for her “Florentine finish.”

Bucci was deeply inspired by GG’s design, challenged and inspired by its perfection to create another female-first alternative. Much like Dimier, she wanted to break the rules: “The industry is very masculine and very technical,” Bucci told The New York Times. “Anything done for women is an adaptation, whether it’s smaller, given a pink strap, or slapped in diamonds.” That’s a more articulate way of framing the “shrink it and pink it” approach that, until recently, has been the patronizing go-to for many luxury super clone watches wholesale online brands.

Reporting in 2016, Cara lauded Bucci’s design for breathing new life into the Royal Oak lineage. But she wasn’t completely sold: “The 33mm replica watches site are powered by the caliber 2713, which, unfortunately, is a quartz movement,” she wrote. “AP makes such great in-house movements that are often found in Royal Oaks, and it’s a bit of a letdown to see something quartz used here.” No shade to quartz fake watches paypal, but she did have a point: For this special 40th-anniversary watch, wasn’t it fair to expect a mechanical movement? It’s hard to imagine any Swiss watchmaker using quartz for such a high-profile piece if it were designed for men.

Where Are We Now?

So then, back to black – as in this 34mm ceramic, with reference number 77350CE.OO.1266CE.01.

This one, my friends, has a mechanical movement. The fact that it’s a small size and automatic legitimizes “ladies” timepieces. Incidentally, AP also released an updated version of the Bucci in this same July round of novelties and – are you ready? It’s also automatic, powered by the self-winding Calibre 5800, featuring 50 hours of power reserve. Between these two, it seems best quality Audemars Piguet replica watches has learned a bit in the last five years, reframing what it might mean to make a women’s watch.

Then there’s the material. Royal Oaks are often steel, which sounds tough, but because they’re so finished and so polished, they’re prone to scratching (regardless of whether or not you wear your watch Kylie Jenner-style, stacked with three Cartier Love bracelets). But ceramic? Stack away! It’s essentially scratch-resistant. Plus, it’s durable, lightweight and, fun fact, it’s also hypoallergenic. This material choice feels particularly timely, as the market has already been acclimated, just this year alone, via Tudor’s successful Black Bay Ceramic and the similar Omega Seamaster Professional 300m Black Black. Unlike those releases, however, this 2021 imitation watches is enhanced with 18-carat pink-gold screws, applied hour markers, and Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating. And pulling it all together is the unmistakable “Grande Tapisserie” dial.

Nestled within the case you’ll find the self-winding Calibre 5800, featuring 50 hours of power reserve, which is supplied by Vaucher Manufacture, where it goes by the name VMF 3002. AP’s version of the VMF 3002 is highly finished with a gold winding rotor. Purists may weep, but in my view, nothing is lost by using this movement versus an in-house movement. “Audemars Piguet, like virtually every high-end maker, has used a combination of in-house and supplied movements for most of its history,” Jack Forster reminds us. The decision to use this particular movement, we presume, came down to a practical matter of size – better not to wedge the larger 3120 into this 34mm case. Vaucher, by the way, is a very respectable source for high-end movements, having been established by Michel Parmigiani in 2003. It’s now under the Parmigiani Fleurier Watchmaking hub. All good company.

Now, 34mm, by most people’s standards, would be considered ladies’ fake watches shop. And it was launched as such. But if you look at its official listing on the Audemars Piguet website today, you may have yourself a chuckle. This piece, they say, is and I quote: “Dedicated to the slenderest wrists.” The slenderest of wrists! They don’t mention anything about this being a ladies’ or a men’s watch. It’s just for our slender-wristed friends, which as we all know, could be anyone. It’s me, it’s Ryan Gosling … is it you? I like to believe that AP execs read Cara Barrett’s piece on why All Watches Should Be Unisex and then locked themselves in a design studio until they spun this baby up, although this watch is still listed under the Ladies collection. My editor, a certain male vice president, has said he’d wear this watch in a heartbeat.

A Week On The Wrist

Remember when I couldn’t figure out why everyone was geeking out over this watch back in June? Well, it’s fair to say that I now get the hype. But before we dive into my experience with it, I want to bluntly say that this would still not be my first pick of the AP litter. My taste is more akin to the original, Jacqueline Dimer-designed piece, which happens to be 29mm and two-tone, aka a Teeny Tiny Two-Tone Royal Oak (or, affectionately, TTTTRO). I love small China replica watches, and although 34mm is considered petite by even most female collectors, it was a leap for me. My current watch collection is modest: Over the past year, I’ve acquired my Tank, a 26mm pre-owned Datejust, and a vintage ladies’ Seiko Diver. Next to my lil’ guys, 34mm might as well be a Jumbo.

I also was a bit turned off by the aesthetics. I’m a classic gal and I like classic-looking top quality fake watches – steel, gold, muted, minimal. My wardrobe consists mostly of black, so you would think that this black watch complements my style swimmingly, but when I first tried this watch on at AP HQ, it felt a bit too Kendall-Roy-Flies-To-The-Hamptons-In-A-Helicopter. In that room, looking at the AP novelties, I was far more drawn to the Bucci frosted gold. It was simply more me.

I had to spend a week with it to actually get why the black is so cool.

I decided to lean into the black-on-black vibe, embracing it as very New York. Sleek, cosmopolitan, cutting-edge. The New York of fashionistas as opposed to finance bros. Looking at it from that perspective, I took the opportunity to experience NYC to the fullest. I rented a suite at the Plaza Hotel in homage to Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, and decided I’d be a tourist in my own city, vacationing from my regular routine, incognito.

A yellow cab – because, of course! – transported me from my East Village apartment to the hotel steps; and as we whisked up Madison Avenue, my eyes beheld the ceramic bracelet poetically catching the light. Ceramic behaves differently than steel. I could see the faint brush strokes on the links and noticed how the whole AAA best replica watches played with the sun’s rays and the shadows, gleaming with city life.

I also was reminded of its weightlessness. It was there, solid and sturdy – but subtly so. Tucked under my sleeve, this watch could be as discreet or as in-your-face as I wanted it to be. And any seasoned New Yorker will tell you there’s a time to be flashy and a time to lay low.

The price tag made me nervous. This fake watches with Swiss movements retails for $46,200 – by far the most expensive thing I’d ever had on my person. So, in the cab, I put on my shades and laid suuuper low until I entered the protected atmosphere of The Plaza, home to Eloise, where nothing bad could ever happen.

I hopped out of the cab, escorted by the bellman through the gilded revolving doors and into the climate-controlled lobby populated by trained security. Now I could raise my sleeve to sport the watch in its full extravagance: A five-figure timepiece in a five-star lobby. Appropriate for my marvelous staycation.

When I took a walk around the neighborhood, I went back into stealth mode. Even in a ritzy part of town I still felt anxious, especially with the Philippe Chow Submariner-jacking incident still fresh in my mind. The thing about a watch like this, though, is that it makes you feel amazing even when nobody can see it, because you know it’s there. As I strolled the Upper East Side, Gershwin might as well have been playing in the streets. The fact that this luxury Swiss replica Audemars Piguet watches was hidden from passersby made it even better, more discreetly feminine. The experience was solely mine. The RO became less of a watch and more of a glowing orb of energy, source of a goddess-like superpower.

I rented a limousine to carbon-copy the iconic Home Alone scene when Kevin McCallister feasts on a pizza in the backseat, his thirst quenched by Coke fizzing in a champagne flute. A lovely cheese pizza, just for me! Had FAO Schwarz been in its original location, I’d have been tempted to buy myself a big plush toy. In a funny way, the watch made me feel like a kid again, but also like a very self-assured woman. A Shiv Roy, not a Kendall. Rolling around in a limo didn’t hurt either – strangers did double-takes as I popped my Celine-shaded eyes out to gander at the skyscrapers whirring by. Who was she? No, really, who was she? Who was I?

This Royal Oak hit different, its little heartbeat merging with mine. Wearing it felt like I was visiting New York for the first time, in awe of the sheer magnitude of it all. This cheap online fake watches against this backdrop held me in a still point of the turning world.

Luxury UK Sale Fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak ‘Jumbo’ Extra Thin Ref. 15202ST Online

Blue Dial Fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak

The last time we featured a Swiss made replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak I told you it was just built different. I told you about Ben Clymer’s explanation that it’s “the realest of the real when it comes to high-end sports watches.” I told you that there is just something about this watch that does it for me. That all stands. However, I was talking about a thoroughly modern and updated Royal Oak that go-round, the ref. 15500. There is nothing wrong with that AAA perfect fake watches online, it is outstanding in so many ways. But, that super clone watches are not the OG – what we have today, however, is.

Stainless Steel Fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak

Even if you’re not a reference person, the 15202 has a ring to it, making it just a bit easier to remember. If you’re going to remember a couple of reference numbers, this one would be up there. The watch that was designed by Gérald Genta in 1971 and introduced the idea of a luxury sports replica watches to the world in ’72 is presented here by the brand nearly 50 years later in as close to its original form as possible. Dimensions are largely unchanged from that 1972 iteration; the dial is blue and features a tapisserie finish as well.

Stainless Steel Fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak

AP’s current head honcho, CEO Francois Bennahmias, confirmed in March that the 15202 will be replaced within the brand’s catalog in 2022. As perfect fake Audemars Piguet UK celebrates the 50th anniversary of the original Royal Oak, a refresh is set to hit the model, or so says Francois.

With the state of the pre-owned market, the 15202 is alongside super clone Patek Philippe’s Nautilus ref. 5711 in terms of high-priced controversy. No matter where you stand on that discussion, what we have here is a watch that is ready to ship today, full box and papers, and backed by the online store guarantee as authentic.
