I have a real soft, yet sore, spot for Yves Klein dial 1:1 fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oaks. Once upon a time, I had a 35mm two-tone steel/yellow gold configuration in my sights – then listed for $12,000 USD, but I foolishly hesitated. Before I felt comfortable selling a few pieces off, and coughing up the rest of the cash, it was sold – at less than half the price it would cost today no less. Yves Klein dial replica watches online uk stand out from the typical Royal Oak watches due to their electric blue dials, an unofficial nickname due to its colour being inspired by the French painter. The dial colour is not the only distinct difference, you also have stick-shaped hands instead of the Genta baton hands that are usually found. In a game of millimetres, the distinctions make for a rarer collectable.
Other Yves Klein perfect fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oaks have been made, in varying levels of complication, but the Perpetual Calendar is by far the rarest. It is not often these pieces come up for sale, and, of course, being a stainless-steel model it is that much more desirable.
Quickly running through the numbers, the stainless-steel Audemars Piguet replica for sale is 39mm in diameter and it is powered by the automatic calibre 2120/2802 with a skeltonized and engraved rotor. Ineichen lists the watch from 2000 as in very good condition, clearly evident from the lot photos, and reports that dial up it runs within chronometer specifications only gaining 5 seconds per day.
Estimate: $163,050 – $217,400 USD
