Imagine the responsibility and challenges of having to produce 50th-anniversary watches to honour the forerunner and undisputed leader of the luxury sports watch. Luckily, perfect replica Audemars Piguet is not daunted by challenges and has feted its Royal Oak’s 50th birthday with standout models like the Jumbo Extra-Thin 16202 with a newly developed movement. A couple of months after the initial euphoria, luxury fake Audemars Piguet UK unveiled the first Jumbo ever fitted with a flying tourbillon. Merging the classic design cues of the iconic Jumbo with a new extra-thin flying tourbillon movement (calibre 2968), the 39mm steel case displayed the signature blue petite tapisserie dial. Given the challenges of developing a new calibre to fit inside the thin 8.1mm case height of the Jumbo, the project was entrusted to top copy Audemars Piguet’s Research & Development department to become RD#3. History repeats itself today as AP unveils a second version of its Swiss made replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak RD#3 in an even smaller 37mm case size with a classic petite tapisserie dial in an intrepid plum colour.
Revered as a design icon, the Jumbo is as close as you can get to Gerald Genta’s original 1972 cheap fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak. With its 39mm, extra-thin stainless steel tonneau-shaped case, integrated bracelet, octagonal bezel with eight exposed screws and petite tapisserie dial, the Jumbo has become one of the most sought-after super clone watches uk in the world. Nicknamed ‘Jumbo’ in the 1970s because of its ‘large’ 39mm case, many fans feared for the soul of the Jumbo when AP killed the legendary ref. 15202 in 2021 to pave the way for the 50th-anniversary ref.16202 of 2022. Fitted with a new extra-thin in-house movement after fifty years ticking to the beat of calibre 2121 – a JLC 920 ébauche – the latest Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica for sale is, in the eyes of the MONOCHROME team, almost identical on the outside to the original but even better on the inside.
Although the spirit of the ‘Jumbo’ lives on in this 37mm, and I am tempted to call it a ‘Baby Jumbo’, this new Audemars Piguet fake online UK cannot be considered a Jumbo because it does not comply with the strict specification of a 39mm case size AP has in place to protect its king of the castle. Perhaps the best way of understanding the classification of this new 37mm model is in the context of high quality replica Audemars Piguet’s Research & Development models, a hotbed of innovation where creations like the RD#1 RO Concept Minute Repeater Supersonnerie and the RD#2 RO Selfwinding Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin were engineered. The 39mm high end copy Audemars Piguet Jumbo Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon Extra-Thin RD#3 marks the third innovation and is now accompanied by this smaller 37mm, both powered by the new calibre 2968.
CASE AND DIAL
The smaller 37mm best quality replica Audemars Piguet retains the 8.1mm case height and 50m water-resistance of its larger sibling and is also fitted with a sapphire crystal caseback. Like the facelift operated on permanent members of the best copy Audemars Piguet Royal Oak earlier this year, the polished bevels are wider, and the increased taper of the bracelet gives the watch a more slender profile.
Although the diameter of the 37mm Swiss movement replica Audemars Piguet rules it out as a Jumbo, it does share some features with the 39mm Jumbo – including the price! For one, the dial is decorated with the signature petite tapisserie guilloché pattern but picked out in a very vivid plum colour. Obtained by Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) to ensure a homogenous long-lasting hue, the dial incorporates the original 1972 bathtub-shaped hour markers in white gold and Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating. The luxury fake Audemars Piguet signature and minute track are printed in white, and the aperture at 6 o’clock reveals the titanium flying tourbillon cage.
Developed over five years, the extra-thin flying tourbillon movement – calibre 2968 – powering the 39mm and 37mm replica watches for sale uk was a technical achievement. As a complication previously reserved for 41mm diameters, Swiss copy Audemars Piguet’s technical team had to rethink the architecture to reduce the thickness of the flying tourbillon. One of the solutions was to equip the tourbillon cage with a peripheral drive. The peripheral drive allowed for a reduction in the thickness of the tourbillon to fit inside the slim 8.1mm case, all the while improving energy efficiency. Another modification was an increase in the amplitude of the oscillator. To enhance the spectacle of the flying tourbillon, the geometry and position of the balance wheel arms have been modified, and the tourbillon is placed at dial level.
