Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is the most masculine watch, it has a case with obvious edges and clear lines, octagonal bezel is fixed by eight screws, each detail is very tempting for me. If you had experience in buying replica watches, you will know that J12 factory makes the best replica Audemars Piguet watches, but after the release of this Audemars Piguet Diver 15706 replica by XF, I changed my opinion, the factory that could be able to challenge J12’s dominance appeared, that is XF. After reading my review, you will know my saying is right. XF is not a new factory, actually it has been very familiar to us, it was previous KW or V6 factory. I do not know why they changed their factory name in 2018. Now, let’s back to this replica watch, it is the latest V2 edition of Audemars Piguet Diver 15706, every detail has reached to be a perfect replicating level.
The case is completely made of forged carbon, take a closer look at the case, it has special carbon patterns, and the forged carbon case makes this big watch feel light when wearing. Bezel is made of high grade black ceramic, the replica watch has a very high-level case construction, which is the same as genuine watch. Between the case and bezel, there is one gasket made of black rubber to guarantee better water resistance. The surface of the black ceramic bezel is brushed and feels high quality textured. However, the case finish still has not reached to the level of J12 AP replicas. On the solid case back, central relief “Royal Oak Offshore” is polished in sandblasting background.
Black dial is checkered, there are stick hour markers in white, hour markers and Arabic numerals on the beveled inner bezel are applied Swiss Superlume material. The dial will have a strong green lume light in the dark. Minute hand and the tip of the central second hand are in yellow color, which is in line with the yellow inner diving bezel. The dial has a great finish, date window is positioned at 3 o’clock, white date font is centered in the window and has the same font size and thickness as genuine AP 15706.
Compared with J12 AP 15706, the biggest advantage of XF replica AP 15706 is that it is equipped with a Swiss ETA 2836 movement. I mean this replica uses a genuine Swiss ETA movement, the factory modified the auto rotor and movement plates so that it looks like AP 3120 Caliber. XF made this clone 3120 movement on basis of a genuine ETA 2836, so the movement will work more accurate and stable. The following are details of the replica. By the way, the factory also offers one pair of XS black and yellow rubber strap for this watch.
