About Royal Oak Diver watch replica, it was very popular in the past, now its popularity has dropped a lot, whether Royal Oak Diver model 15703 or 15710, JF made the best replicas of them in the past, they have upgraded them to the latest V10 edition, with the closure of JF manufacturer, super clones of 15710 and 15703 have been unavailable for a long time til ZF started to make the replicas, but it seems like people have more recognition of the other Royal Oak watches from ZF such as 15400 and 15500. Fortunately APS factory becomes more powerful, after JF, APS now becomes the only one factory that has some ability to research and develop better movements for AP replicas, the 3120 movement from APS now is the best clone 3120 movement used in their Royal Oak 15400, besides, APS factory published the V2 edition of replica 15710 in July, this is a good news for us, I think that’s the only super clone 15710 in our market.
Now, back to the new Royal Oak Diver watch 15720, both ZF and APS do not make the replica 15720, now if you want to get a good replica 15720, there are two options, BF and IPF, between the two, IPF is better. The photos I shared in this post are from IPF. About this factory, I do not know the meaning of its name “IP”. The 15720 replica from IPF has four color options, black, grey, green and blue, they all good, especially when I see its movement that is modified on basis of Japanese Miyota 9015, I think the quality of the replica won’t be bad. IP factory makes the 15720 with solid stainless steel that is brushed, the case has a diameter of 42mm and thickness is up to 14.2mm. The black bezel uses ceramic material, which is vertically brushed on the front, while being polished on the edge of the bezel. The case of AP is the most angular one I have ever seen, it is difficult to be replicated especially when needed to be done 1:1 as original, the big AP case, if not finished well, it is easy to notice the difference, I really like the case on AP made by JF, they always made the most beautiful case before.
The dial layout looks more compact than that of 15710, actually I like the dial style of 15710 more. On the dial of 15720, the hour markers become wider, but can be applied with more luminous material, so the dial has a stronger lume in dark conditions, the inner bezel features a yellow diving stripe with yellow numeral markers, this also enhances the readability of the black dial. About the movement you see through the crystal back, there are golden engravings on the plates and a big brand AP logo on the skeleton rotor, IP factory spent some time and effort to modify the movement and it is a good clone 4308, the movement is very stable and will have few issues when you wear the watch, but there is still a big gap between this clone 4308 and a super clone one. I think APS and ZF will make replica 15720 in future, but not in 2022, perhaps in the second half year of 2023.
