When I saw this watch I just couldn't help myself, I had to buy it! Yes it is a homage to the AP Royal Oak, but this is so much fun for such little money in the grand scheme of things. The dial has developed a patina which has given it an almost star dust finish which is hard to capture, but when in the right light it really shows itself off! The bracelet is super comfortable and the wrist presence is very nice.
I think if you're dreaming of that Royal Oak but aren't quite there, this watch is the perfect thing for the meantime! It scratches that itch whilst still standing on it's own merits and being enjoyable... Who knows, when you get the Royal Oak you might still pull this out of the watch box for a bit of fun!
Points of Mention
The watch has a lovely black dial which has patina'd and developed an almost stardust effect, quite difficult to capture but feel free to email me and I can do my best to get some natural shots showing this effect. The case does bare scratches and the bracelet has some stretch, this wasn't a safe queen and was worn and loved. The folding clasp is still secure and snaps nicely, it comes with its entire bracelet and will fit a very large wrist. The watch will be fitted with a new battery.
I really like this watch and truly had to buy it when I saw it! Didn't even blink. I will be enjoying this watch from time to time until it can go off to its new home, I'll be quite sad when it does! But a watch like this deserves to be enjoyed.
