If you were ever wondering what started the stainless-steel sports replica watches craze we find ourselves in today, none of it would have been possible without one particular watch – which recently celebrated its 50th Birthday. On April 15th, 1972, luxury fake Audemars Piguet UK, Georges Golay, and Gérald Genta would forever change the luxury sports watch segment – in fact, you could say this date was the moment when it was actually born. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica for sale pricing strategy in 1972 was absolutely wild for the time, positioning a stainless-steel watch in a manner never seen before.
Just imagine… the most expensive steel watch at the time supposedly retailed for CHF 850. Upon its debut, the AAA fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak commanded a retail price of CHF 3,300.
In fact, it was not just more expensive than other steel replica watches for sale – but also gold watches as well. Within the cheap copy Audemars Piguet 1972 catalogue, for example, the yellow gold Model 5043, equipped with ultra-thin Calibre 2003 was listed at CHF 2,990.
Rather than shy away from the boldness of its positioning, top replica Audemars Piguet’s advertising partner, the Hugo Buchser agency, instead leaned into it for the marketing campaign – with powerful taglines such as “Would you buy a Rembrandt for its canvas”.
Its release set the stage for other classic pieces like the super clone Patek Philippe Nautilus to follow suit. Since its inception to the present, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica for sale has maintained its status as one of the most desired watch designs in the world. A grail watch for many collectors over the last 50 years. So, we wish the best 1:1 fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak a belated happy 50th birthday and cannot wait to see what the next 50 years holds for the collection.
