Hands-On 1:1 Perfect Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Ref. 15500 Fake Watch UK

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the original Royal Oak in 2012, Swiss made replica Audemars Piguet pulled all the stops to make sure that the RO was properly celebrated. This included the launch of two completely new sizes for the time-only models: the Royal Oak ref. 15400 (41mm) and ref. 15450 (37mm).

2012 was also the year that Audemars Piguet introduced the current Royal Oak “Jumbo” ref. 15202. This reference was quickly targeted by collectors as being THE Royal Oak model to own as it is the closest watch you can get to an original 1972 RO ref. 5402. The watch retained the 39mm case size, the dial featured the AP logo at 6 o’clock with the ‘petite tapisserie’ pattern, and the same caliber 2121, found in the original RO, was powering the watch and was now visible for owners to admire thanks to a display caseback.

Needless to say that the watch became hot instantly — and still is after 9 years of production. With 2022 being the 50th anniversary of the Royal Oak, pay close attention to what Audemars Piguet has in store as the expectations are high.

What the other two case sizes introduced in 2012 did for the Royal Oak line — apart from alleviating the demand for the 15202 — was creating a wide selection of daily-wearers for collectors to choose from, especially catering to various wrist sizes. Let’s remember that from 2005 until 2012, many people were buying the Royal Oak ref. 15300 (39mm case size) as the daily-wear RO. This model was replaced to make way for the two new ref. 15400 and ref. 15450. The ref. 15400 was subsequently replaced with the ref. 15500 a few years later.

The high-quality fake Royal Oak ref. 15500 was launched in 2019 to replace the previous ref. 15400. The case size was kept at 41mm but the watch came with a new movement, the caliber 4302, found also in the time-only Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 launched in the same year.

The new caliber improved on Caliber 3120 used in the ref. 15400 by making the watch beat at 4Hz with an updated power reserve of 70 hours.

The new movement meant that the dial had to be updated and cleaned up to differentiate itself from its predecessor. The date window at 3 o’clock is now much closer to the bezel, the hour markers have had their length reduced but are now thicker, the ‘Automatic’ inscription has been removed, and the minute track is now printed on a ring on the outer edge of the “Grande Tapisserie” dial. All these changes have the visual effect of making the dial cleaner and larger. A welcomed update to the basic Royal Oak, and a great way to mark a transition between an old model and a new one.

On the wrist, the watch wears large and that feeling is further reinforced by the space available on the dial. Some might say that such a generous dial creates a visual imbalance but I think it just draws you more into the “Grande Tapisserie” pattern and you can find yourself staring at it for long periods of time depending on how the light hits the dial.

The new Caliber 4302 actually makes the watch thicker than the older generation. At 10.4mm thick for the case, and with a full steel bracelet, you get a lot of metal on the wrist which might feel a bit heavy for people with smaller sized wrists. I certainly felt that way when I first strapped the watch on my wrist, but that sensation rapidly left because of one simple thing: it’s a Royal Oak, and it’s damn good!

Not to sound like a fanboy but the Royal Oak design is just unique and there isn’t anything else in the watch industry that comes close to it. The perfect combination of brushed and polished surfaces, sharp angular edges, all united by a bracelet that shines like no other, make the Royal Oak something that you constantly want to look at.

You might say that I felt that way because I only had the watch for a week to review, but consider that I also have a Royal Oak of my own and I can tell you that the feeling you get when you first lay eyes on the watch never goes away.

While I did feel that the watch could be heavy at times, especially for my small wrist, a simple way to address that is to change the bracelet to one of Audemars Piguet’s rubber or leather straps. On top of removing some of the weight, it has the added benefit of giving more options should you want to go in the pool with it or attend a formal dinner.

As the basic Royal Oak, it is a strong offering which retains the iconic design that made the model famous, all the while offering updates — both internally and externally — which ushers the ref. 15500 into the modern era of Audemars Piguet.

Introducing The UK New Replica Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch With Caliber 3861

Today is a big day for the Swiss made fake Omega Speedmaster, as it received a long awaited update that is sure to please many and create a lot of discussion within our community. The Speedmaster is a watch that everyone has an opinion on – Instagram and the various watch forums are filled with hot takes about the endless limited edition variants, the benefits and detriments of the Speedy Reduced, and the virtues and pitfalls of collecting vintage Speedmasters. Something that has remained relatively constant for decades, however, has been the standard “Moonwatch,” the one with the “Flight qualified by NASA…” language on the caseback, and, most importantly, the stalwart caliber 1861 beating away inside. This relatively simple hand wound chronograph caliber traces its lineage to Omega’s Caliber 321, which itself has roots with Lemania, one of the most important movement makers of the 20th century. Even beyond the moon landing, there’s a ton of history here, so it’s not a small thing when there’s an update to the movement inside the moonwatch.

The new Moonwatch features the updated Caliber 3861, which is essentially the 1861 fitted with a co-axial escapement and put through Omega’s rigorous METAS testing process. The 3861 is a relatively new movement, making its debut in a solid gold Speedmaster to commemorate the Apollo 11 anniversary back in 2019, and has been featured in a handful of special Speedmasters since then, including the recently announced Silver Snoopy. With the 3861 out in the world in these various hard to get Speedmasters, many observers felt it was only a matter of time before it made its way into the plain old Moonwatch, and that day has finally come. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with the 1861, being robust enough for space, after all, it could be said that it’s perhaps a little long in the tooth. The 3861 is a thoroughly modern Omega caliber, complete with extreme magnetic resistance up to 15,000 gauss, modern materials, and so on.

What’s really interesting about this release, though, is that what we’re seeing is more than just a movement swap. AAA best replica Omega has taken the opportunity to update and enhance other aspects of the Speedmaster Professional, creating what is truly a next generation product with its own distinct look and feel. At first glance, you might not notice all of the changes, as they’re quite subtle and, I think, geared towards vintage enthusiasts who revel in the minutiae that is so much a part of being a Speedmaster enthusiast, but there’s actually quite a bit to take in.

Let’s get this out of the way – yes, the bezel (still aluminum) has the all important “dot over 90” or “DON” layout. Old school Speedy nuts should be overjoyed by this, although my first thought is that it’s going to wreak havoc on the vintage market if new DON bezels could reasonably be passed off as vintage to unsuspecting customers. Time will tell on that one – my hope and suspicion is that there are incredibly small changes to the new bezel that should make it fairly obvious it’s new upon close inspection. This Speedmaster also sees the return of the stepped dial, a design element that has been absent from modern Speedys for years, and will add a nice touch of depth to an otherwise flat (literally and figuratively) dial. The minute track also sees a small change, with more clearly defined delineations that indicate fractional seconds.

When it comes to the case, high-quality fake Omega has made a small adjustment to the chronograph pushers, flattening them out a bit, giving them a more traditional “pump pusher” profile. They’re just a little more defined, and make the previous iteration look a bit mushy by comparison. The bracelet is a steel version of the gold Apollo 11 anniversary watch linked above, and is fully brushed. The clasp is new, but again evokes styles of the past.

All of these changes add up to a slightly more refined Speedy Pro with some more pronounced vintage cues, matched with a movement that takes advantage of Omega’s best technology. Putting aside objectivity for a moment, this is a great update that I’m personally very excited about, as it’s not only a great looking watch with an updated caliber, but evidence that Omega, as a brand, hears their most vocal supporters very clearly. This is both an exciting mass market product, which is something the Moonwatch needs to be, and a knowing nod to the enthusiast community. That’s a difficult line to walk, but it seems like Omega has pulled it off.

There are a total of four new watches available as part of this update: the traditional Hesalite crystal Moonwatch ($5,950 on a strap, $6,300 on a bracelet), a reference with a sapphire crystal and exhibition caseback ($7,150), and versions in both Sedna ($34,800) and Canopus white gold, with a white dial ($45,300). The new 1:1 perfect replica Speedmaster watches are available now through authorized Omega channels.
