Replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph Review

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph has been available for some time and has indeed attracted a lot of attention since its release. Featuring the same strong and robust Royal Oak case and bezel, the new Royal Oak Chronograph boasts a more reasonable dial layout compared to the Royal Oak Offshore Chrono. However, when it comes to replicas, two factories—BF and OMF—are known for making them. Despite producing good clones, both versions differ from the genuine watches, which is why the replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph hasn’t gained much popularity, even though there is high demand for the authentic model among watch enthusiasts..

The BF version of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph has a notable flaw: its subdials are incorrectly positioned on the dial, making it easy to identify as a fake. On the other hand, the OM version, while featuring the correct dial design and properly positioned subdials, has two non-functional subdials at 3:00 and 9:00. In the genuine watch, these subdials function as minute and hour chronograph counters, but in the replica watch, the small hands are fixed.

OM is a well-known factory, particularly famous for its Omega Speedmaster Chrono replicas that were popular both domestically and internationally. However, due to the impact of the pandemic and regulatory raids, OM’s business has been affected, leading to fewer new releases and technological improvements. Despite this, the OM factory sells its replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph at a high price, over 500 USD. While this price point is not unreasonable for a high-quality replica, many customers consider it too high for an imperfect watch. This situation mirrors the comparison between the AR factory’s Daytona replica and the more sought-after Noob Daytona, which, despite its higher price, offers a perfect replica experience.

The question remains: can the OM factory produce a better replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph with fully functional minute and hour chronograph counters? The potential is there, but it seems unlikely that they will develop a new movement at this stage.
