In an unsurprising turn of events, the cheap Audemars Piguet Replica has re-focused its attention to its past designs. With so many beautiful, albeit today little-known references in its history, that's awesome news. The Audemars Piguet Remaster01 Self-Winding Chronograph is the first watch to launch the master line by reiterating the handsome design of a 1943 original in a slightly confused, albeit still very good-looking package.
The original we are referring to here is the Fake Audemars Piguet Ref. 1533, a three-register, two-tone (in some versions), 36.5mm-wide, hand-wound chronograph produced in extremely low quantities in the early 1940s. The Remaster01, or [Re]master01, takes the core components of that exceptionally pretty aesthetic, namely the tear-drop lugs, two-tone case construction using steel and 18kt pink gold, and the three-register dial layout - a truly exotic detail for the time.
There have been some considerable changes performed as the 1533 gets a new lease on life in a new millennium. First of all, replaced is the modest size, now inflated from 36.5mm to 40mm. The former size of 36.5mm would be perfectly acceptable today - just think of a Rolex Day-Date 36 or some smaller Breguet replica watches for some hard proof on that. Designer Audemars Piguet's choice of name with "[Re]master" works great in that it implies how the brand does not intend to create exact reproductions of its historical originals. Given limitations in original Swiss movement and other parts availability, maintaining the original details would be a tall order. Though far from impossible, and we'll say more on that a bit later. We have to admit Audemars Piguet is the great one of the brands of Swiss Replica Watches.
Also gone is the glorious, hand-wound Valjoux 13VZAH caliber, in favor of the brand's recently launched, beautifully finished automatic chronograph caliber 4409 from Code 11.59 (where it was called 4401). The two changes may very well be intertwined: The 4401 caliber measures 32mm in diameter, over 2mm more than the Valjoux original. The caseback image already reveals how replica Audemars Piguet has done all it can to shrink-wrap the case around the movement as much as possible, so a smaller case closer to the 1940s original might not have been possible.
The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that the dial layout has also been changed. It just so happens that the modern movement has a completely different sub-dial layout, where all three of the subsidiary indications are in another location than on the Valjoux 13. Audemars Piguet Replica Watches UK factory had long been given a hard time over not producing its own manufacture chronograph caliber - relying on a base in-house AP movement with sourced modules on top, instead, all the while (let's be honest) pricing itself comfortably among the competition with proprietary movements. Overall the noise around Code 11.59, this new caliber may have been disregarded by many, which is a shame. It is a high-quality movement that almost reaches to the heights that luxury copy Audemars Piguet sometimes reaches in its communications. In its Caliber 4401 version, it comprised 367 painstakingly finished parts - all of which you can see in The Naked Watchmaker's outstanding tear-down article here.
At the start, we referred to the Remaster01 as a good-looking, albeit slightly confusing package. Here's why. The Audemars Piguet [Re]master01 Selfwinding Chronograph is priced at a whopping $53,000 before taxes and is limited to 500 pieces. The steep price for what is a two-tone watch with a reasonably simple dial and capable movement with a widely available feature-set implies that this may be aimed at the hardcore collectors, those desperate to own a watch that they reckon is a pivotal point in the history of a brand they love. I sympathize with Audemars Piguet replica watches uk manufacturer trying to find a limitation where everyone who really wants one, gets one;
"This is a great experience in buying luxury AP Watches. You know this imitation Audemars Piguet UK online store is the best choice for men and women."
