Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica Frosted Gold

It’s been exactly 64 days since I first held the new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica Frosted Gold, and it’s now been exactly 64 days of me missing it. This replica watch is everything I want and more. It’s sporty, cool, classic, sparkly, too much, too little, and, most of all, I need it. Like, a lot. But before getting into my effusive feelings on this beauty, let’s get into the story behind this awesome timepiece and how it came to be in the first place.


Where Did This Watch Come From?

The Replica Audemars Piguet Frosted Gold Royal Oak in 37mm rose gold. Wow.

If you are an avid reader of HODINKEE, you likely know the history of the Royal Oak like back of your wrist. In any case, here is a quick refresher.

The Royal Oak was designed by now-legendary watch designer Gerald Genta in 1971. It shot to super-stardom over the years and was released in many different variations and references (the 5402, 14802, 15400, and 15202, to name a few) continuously from then until now. The watch has always been known for it’s sporty octagonal case shape, substantial link bracelet, and grande tapisserie dial. It is an icon and even if you don’t like it, you kind of have to respect its status in the horological hall of fame.

At this year’s SIHH, we saw a lot of new Royal Oak releases, including the new Royal Oak Replica Extra-Thin “Jumbo” reference 15202 in yellow gold, the black ceramic Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar, and even the Royal Oak Tourbillon Extra-Thin Openworked in stainless steel (oof). But the highlight for me was the Royal Oak Frosted Gold. This thing was seriously dope and I mean that in the least precocious way possible. (more…)

Since I started writing for Insider Picks, I’ve come to realize I love watches.

They’re a simple addition to your wardrobe, and can give you a certain air of professionalism and style.

There are many established companies in the watch market that are well worth investigating, but startups and direct-to-consumer brands have begun to appear.

These newcomers are making quality replica watches that are significantly more affordable than their well-established competitors. Founded in 2014, Armogan is one of these new watchmakers. After reaching out to the company, they sent me their newest watch – the Le Mans Chronograph – for testing. One of the Armogan’s cofounders, Amaury Deckers, also answered some questions I had about the company and its watches.
