We are experiencing a very difficult time, now the COVID-19 broke out again in many cities like GZ, SZ and SH, which also affected the business of many watch factories, however, orders still accepted by them, just a bit slower than before for them to release watches, shipping time is also affected, now the delivery usually takes more than 15 days, hope the pidemic will end soon.
In recent weeks, some factories unveiled several new models, for example, this blue AP Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph watch is exactly a new one from RS factory, it is the first time for me to see a AP replica watch with a colored ceramic case. This is not the first time for RS to make AP replicas, the first AP replica they produced is Royal Oak 15400, which is ok and may be not as popular as JF 15400 or ZF 15400, I almost have forgotten RS, and this time the new ceramic AP ROO Chrono watch they unveiled supprises me.
Before, only J12 factory made Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Secs@12, and their quality is always the best, now RS factory entered this field, this AP from them feels nice. The blue AP features a case that has a diameter of 44mm, case thickness is 16mm. The case is fully made with ceramic material, the black ceramic case and blue ceramic bezel. The case finish is ok, if you felt the finish of a JF AP’s case, you will not be satisfied with the case finish of AP from any other watch factories, but for this AP from RS factory, the case finish is nice, even can not be compared with JF.
This is a AP replica watch with all correct functions. Hours, minutes, small seconds, date and chronograph. On blue checkered dial, there are three small dials, each with different purpose. The subdial at 12 o’clock has a background that differentiates it from other two silver subdials, it is for small seconds, the one at 9 o’clock is a 30-minute chronograph counter, the one at 6 o’clock is a 12-hour chronograph counter. Each small dial has a correct function like the one on genuine watch. By the way, after you push the blue button on the case at 2 o’clock, the central big second-chronograph hand will start to work.
From the crystal back, the movement is beautiful and very close to genuine AP 3126 Calibre. Like J12, this Clone 3126 from RS factory is also a modification from 7750 movement, I hope J12 factory can research and develop out a super clone 3126 movement in future, just like Noob’s super clone 4130 in the Daytona, if that happened, I think the price will be increased to 1500 US Dollars. Besides this blue, RS factory also published green and rose gold one at the same time.
