While Stern was clearly making a global statement with his last sentence and not referencing anyone specific, it allows us to segue into our discussion of fake Audemars Piguet’s maiden mash-up with Marvel, the 1:1 copy Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept “Black Panther” Flying Tourbillon — a watch that was, suffice it to say, the subject of much heated commentary following its launch. Says Audemars Piguet ambassador Austen Chu, “Look, would I buy it? Probably not, but there is already a crazy waiting list because the comments you see on social media do not reflect AP’s client base.
To me, all the commentary was a pity, because it distracted from the fact that this is the first cheap replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept that is 42mm in diameter and fits the wrist perfectly. It distracts from the insane level of artisanship in the micro engraving of the black panther figure. Do Ihttps://www.imwatch.cz/audemars-piguet-royal-oak-concept-replica/watch think the watch could have used the Black Panther theme in a less obvious way? Sure, but on a craft and watchmaking level, I have huge respect for everything that went into the watch.”
How do I feel about this watch? To me, it’s a little facile and could have better expressed the massive cultural impact of the 2018 film and its uplifting effect on the world. Do I find it funny that at 6:30 p.m. the Black Panther gets a little, ahem, anatomical? You know I do, as I’m very childish. But my inclination is to agree with Chu, as the social media bashing also distracted from the fact that Swiss movements copy Audemars Piguet has had one of the most stellar years in terms of new watch launches, with a whole new Offshore family with incredible ergonomics and a quick-change strap as well as the green dial replica watches online Paypal UK I mentioned in earlier, which were absolutely stunning.
It does, however, shows that today’s social media can turn incendiary very fast and perhaps it was the young Pierre Biver who showed true wisdom beyond his years when he took to his Instagram to tell everyone to take a collective frickin’ chill pill, as it was after all, “just a luxury copy watch,” meaning if you don’t like it, you don’t have to buy it. Well done, Pierre.
