Audemars Piguet is a famous fake watches for sale that I am really convinced, not one of them. Why? Take Beijing as an example. There are two Audemars Piguet stores in Beijing, one in Wangfu Central and the other in SKP. Almost all watches in the two Audemars Piguet stores have not been displayed for a long time. In other words, I went into the store, looked around, and found that there were no watches in the counters or showcases (occasionally one or two ladies’ watches or unpopular watches). Buying a watch basically depends on a reservation, and the watch is notified. Yes, it is so popular and scarce.
We always say that Rolex is popular and Patek Philippe is popular. Rolex and Patek Philippe are hot and scarce. In the Rolex store, Patek Philippe Liyuan Mansion, in addition to popular models, other regular watches are still “a dazzling array”, relatively sufficient.
First, the new offshore chronograph is 44mm.
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph has two main sizes, one is 42 and the other is 44. This year, the new 26405 is 44mm. In previous years, the 42mm offshore chronograph 26470 was very popular. The 42mm size is relatively small and more suitable for Chinese people. In the past two years, the center of gravity of the offshore chronograph began to tilt toward 44mm, like the relatively hot “green camouflage” offshore chronograph 26400 in the previous paragraph, which is also 44mm.
It is very simple to distinguish the shore timing, whether it is 42 or 44, just look at the timing button. 42mm is a round head timing button, 44mm is a square timing button. Recognize at a glance (not including the old models that use the purchased FP1185 movement).
The case body of the new offshore chronograph 26405 is ceramic, the bottom cover is titanium, and the bottom cover is transparent. The crown and bridge of the watch, green and blue, are made of titanium; the rose gold ring is made of rose gold. In terms of color matching, Audemars Piguet has played with color very well these years. You can see all kinds of green, color, color matching, camouflage.
Third, the new offshore chronograph has changes on the board.
The biggest change of the new offshore chronograph 26405 this year is the use of digital time scales, which is a major feature of the new model. In the past, for offshore timekeeping, the 42mm 26470 used digital time scales, and the 44mm 26400 used bar time scales. In this way, 42 mm and 44 mm are distinguished. This year’s new model 26405 is 44mm, but uses a digital time scale.
The dial of the new watch has a “smoky” effect. The color in the middle of the dial is lighter, the color around it becomes darker, and the edge of the dial becomes black. The small dials at 6, 9, and 12 o’clock, the time counters at 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock are rhodium-plated silver, and the small seconds at 12 o’clock are black. The dial of the watch is still Audemars Piguet’s iconic “waffle” pattern, and the calendar window with a small magnifying glass is at 3 o’clock.
Fourth, there is no change in the movement of the new offshore chronograph.
The new offshore chronograph 26405 continues to use Audemars Piguet’s self-produced 3126/3840 automatic chronograph movement. Veteran players know that this movement is Audemars Piguet’s 3120 automatic movement with Dubois Depraz’s timing module, which is a modular timing movement. The swing frequency is 21600 times/hour, and the power is 50 hours. This movement is also the movement that has been used for various models of offshore chronographs.
Last year, Audemars Piguet has launched a new generation of automatic movement, including the 4302 automatic big three-hand movement, 4401 automatic chronograph movement (integrated chronograph movement). Two new movements have been used in Audemars Piguet’s new generation Royal Oak 15500 and the new formal 1159 series. At present, the new-generation 43 series and 44 series movements have not been used on offshore models. So in terms of movement, there is no need to worry about offshore models.
As mentioned earlier, Audemars Piguet is hard to find in stock in specialty stores. But now there are many ways to buy watches. From the perspective of the overall market, Audemars Piguet, except for the 15500 and individual popular models, has a relatively high actual market.
