This Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Replica (ref. 26400SO.OO.A002CA.01) was reviewed on 10 different criteria. The review is for this specific replica watch, other models may perform differently. Evaluation is based on my wrist size, personal opinions, experiences, and preferences.
Inspired by its classic and iconic Royal Oak brother, the Royal Oak Offshore (ROO) collection is the much sportier sibling. In 2011, Audemars Piguet Best Replica Watches released this ROO in stainless steel. There is really not much to not like about most ROOs to be honest... for the most part they are all attractive in their own way and this one is no exception. The panda dial with the mega tapisserie pattern, the ceramic bezel, the ceramic chrono pushers and crown, the subtle red accents, the details on the case, and the list goes on and on... this replica watch is just gorgeous, period. An absolute home run for Audemars Piguet.
Iconic design and just simply... beautiful.
The 44mm case looks and feels more like 47mm, it is big and bold. Probably too large for some, but I love the size. Like all Royal Oaks, the octagon shaped bezel (which has become synonymous to the brand Audemars Piguet) is one of the first things you will notice on the replica watch. The brushed and polished finish on the black ceramic bezel is just stunning... combine that with the equally stunning case (those graduating polished beveled edges!) and the result is a perfect 10. The ceramic bezel not only looks great, but it also helps eliminate the unwanted and distracting scratches that are so common on the regular steel bezel models. The overall quality of the case is just jaw dropping. The flat ceramic chrono pushers is one of my favorite features on the replica watch, which was previously only available in Limited Edition ROOs. The open case back allows viewing pleasure of the in-house movement.
