Audemars Piguet is one of the biggest brands in luxury watch manufacturers; however, it is not a brand that is known by many, but by only a few exclusive watch lovers. These watches definitely have something that sets them apart from other brands and their style is very elegant, a detail that makes them absolutely unique. Those who like Audemars Piguet also know its long history and how much of a popular watch it is among celebrities and other well-known people. Because of this, a lot of replica watch manufacturers have been interested in selling a replica of various Audemars Piguet watches; however, there can be a lot of differences between a replica and the genuine brand so here are some of the things to look for when buying your watch.
Here we can admire the beautiful Jules Audemars Tourbillion, a watch that is worth more than 200,000 dollars, so it’s definitely inaccessible for most people. They could buy a replica watch, but there are many elements they need to look for in order to make sure that they got a good watch. The first difference we see is the writing this replica watch has on its dial, as it has “chmonograph” instead of “chronograph”, which is actually a big mistake. There’s also another mistake, the fact that there is no “SwissMade” written on the replica watch.
You will also notice that the secondary dials are quite different too, as one of them is marked with 15 and 31, but also the size of the small dials, which isn’t the same, and their design is quite big and makes the part with the VIII mark fade away. Another problem with this replica watch is the tourbillion, which creates a big focus on the authentic watch, but it’s definitely less noticeable on the replica watch. Also, the seconds hand is a lot thinner in the replica watch than the original watch.
It is also noticeable that the watch is made with low quality materials, which is actually a common thing for cheap watches, there is a big difference and you can easily see various stains on the materials.
As a small closing difference, the design on the seconds hand is not right; it should have been thinner and longer.
