At SIHH 2013, the renowned brand Audemars Piguet unveiled its Tradition Extra-Thin Selfwinding replica watch. It will come in platinum or 18-carat pink gold. Whilst both models are exquisite, this review focusses on the platinum model.
The case of AP Tradition Extra-Thin Selfwinding copy watch with a 43 mm diameter resembles a cushion-shaped pocket watch of the 1920s which resides in the Audemars Piguet museum. The depth of the watch is a mere 6.60 mm, resulting in a very agreeable fit with the wrist.
The opaline dial is fortunate having a comely classicism and delicate execution. It’s inherently elegant, featuring silver applied Arabic numbers. It is open-worked, embracing a similar design to the tips of the aforementioned hour and minute hand. The bi-directional oscillating weight runs on four jewels for optimal winding. The Calibre 2120 contains a total of 212 components.
A sapphire caseback reveals the matchless movement within. Indeed, the spectacle presented surfeits my appetite for the sight of exceptional finissage. Framing the sapphire crystal is a brushed caseback.
The Calibre 2120 movement – by the way the same caliber as the aforementioned platinum fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-Thin copy watch utilizes – is a manufacture movement crafted by the skilled artisans. The movement within the Tradition Extra-Thin Selfwinding measures only two.45 mm thorough.
This AP Extra-Thin Audemar Piguet Tradition Selfwinding Reference: 15160PT.OO.A092CR.01 copy models look awesome to me.
