Swiss replica Audemars Piguet CA and gem-setting partner Salanitro have revealed a staggering feat of gemmology, a collection of 20 new 1:1 fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oaks fully set using 10 different gemstones.
The 18K white gold three-handers are offered in ruby, emerald and blue sapphire as well as tanzanites, yellow chrysoberyls, pink tourmalines, amethysts, blue topaz, orange spessartites and tsavorites, with each offered in 37mm and 41mm sizes.
Salanitro has paved each perfect replica Audemars Piguet with a different invisibly set baguette-cut gemstone, with 861 stones in 179 sizes used on the 41mm pieces and 790 stones in 153 sizes set into the 37mm models. The uniform gem-set dials also recreate the luxury fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak’s famed Grande Tapisserie grid pattern dials.
Beyond the intricate setting work, the difficulty comes in selecting and cutting so many stones for each super clone watch in exactly the same hue, a process which took Salanitro one year. The stones for each watch were checked as sets by Salanitro and then 1:1 replica Audemars Piguet to “ensure full homogeneity” before “purity and natural origin” were verified by an external laboratory.
“With these sets we went off the beaten track to create an unprecedented rainbow with ten bold timepieces, each decorated with a different gemstone,” says Nathalie Barzilay, AAA quality replica Audemars Piguet’s Head Gemmologist. “We selected some of the world’s purest and most vivid stones, including emeralds, rubies, tourmalines, tanzanites, tsavorites, chrysoberyls and spessartites. A challenge as we had to find some 800 gemstones per watch, all with the exact same colour and the highest level of quality.”
The 41mm and 37mm high quality replica watches are fitted with 4Hz Calibre 4309 and Calibre 5909 self-winding movements, each fitted with the Royal Oak’s 50th Anniversary “50-years” winding rotor in rhodium-toned 22-carat pink gold.
Each of the 20 examples are listed as price on application and available via Swiss movement fake Audemars Piguet.
