The luxury fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo, a watch known under its current guise as the reference 15202, is one of the most sought-after and desirable watches produced by the Swiss industry. Its popularity has reached far beyond just the small circle of seasoned collectors. It’s a cult object, a design icon. Yet, the UK best 1:1 replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin 15202 will leave us soon.
We also know from the words of the brand’s CEO that its replacement, due for the 50th anniversary of the model, is expected to be presented soon. And we also that the legendary JLC-based automatic calibre 2121 will be replaced by a new, in-house-produced movement. What, when, how…? We still don’t know. But what we can do for now is to look at what are our top versions of the emblematic AAA fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo 15202.
Let’s start with THE obvious one… The most classic, most emblematic, most relevant, most praised and most historically faithful version of the Royal Oak Jumbo, the stainless steel and blue dial cheap replica Audemars Piguet 15202ST. In fact, if there was only one, it should be this version. Why, because it is the closest you can get from the original concept developed in 1972 with the 5402ST.
This high quality fake Audemars Piguet, first released in 2000 before being extensively revised in 2012 for the 40th anniversary of the model, has it all; the same 39mm stainless steel, a movement that is rather close from the movement used in 1972, a dial with the same Petite Tapisserie pattern and the same Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50 colour and, of course, the same overall design with octagonal bezel, extra-thin case and integrated steel bracelet.
Sure, manufacturing techniques have evolved over the years and a 15202ST feels slightly different from a 5402ST, but the overall spirit is there. So yes, the star of the collection, the stainless steel top Swiss copy Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin with a blue dial had to be part of this list, if not simply on top of it! It will be missed, and let’s hope the new model will live up to its ancestors.
