High technical Audemars Piguet unveiled a successful merger between the bad ass Royal Oak Offshore replica and the most impressive of all complications, the Grande Complication. The took the ultimate luxury sports replica watch and added the ultimate luxury complication, being the grande complication copy watch.
The Grande Complication of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore replica is features a split-seconds chronograph, a perpetual calendar, a moon phase and a minute repeater. Indeed, not the kind of complications you need in a sports watch, especially when you consider this watch is water-resistant to 20 meters. Yes twenty meters, two zero, 20, I didn’t forget a zero. This is caused by the slider that activates the minute repeater, positioned on the left side of the case. Nothing to worry about as I don’t think a complicated movement like the Grande Complication should be used as a sports watch anyway, as it’s just to vulnarable for shocks and bangs. Just look at the stunning beauty and complexity of the 648 parts of self-winding caliber 2885.
The 44 millimeters titanium case with ceramic bezel, crown and push pieces, and sapphire crystal on both sides, look sporty, at least from a distance. Due to the low weight-materials like titanium and ceramic and the rubber strap it wears comfortable as well. So yes it does have the looks and the comfortable wrist-pleasure of a sports AP Royal Oak Offshore copy watch, yet the inner works of a true complicated timepiece.
Impressive design aside, I would still prefer a clear and undisturbed view of the chronograph mechanism exposed on the case back. The number of parts, all finished to extremely high standards, speak for themselves – although we have seen some super-low-production independents try and strive for bevelled and polished edges even on the inner edges and spokes of some of the wheels, that is not present here.
Anyhow, the moment one gets up close to the men fake Royal Oak Offshore‘s most complicated iteration, the faintest idea of bringing it anywhere near a drop of water disappears.
