Original Audemars Piguet watch.

  1. The material of the watch.

The finish of the watch is fundamental, high-end watches such as Audemars Piguet are made with the most exclusive materials.

It is common that counterfeits may have less finely finished materials or may look “dull”, they are also often lighter than the originals.

  1. Lettering and engravings

Be meticulous and check every detail of the text down to the proportion of the letters to see if they are exactly like those of the brand.

The Audemars Piguet logo has remained unchanged since 1950, keeping the letters as the main elements, complementing the initials “AP” merged in a serif font.

  1. Movement of the needles.

The movement of the hands should be smooth and fluid, an original Audemars Piguet watch should not have jumps between seconds.

Although keep in mind that nowadays fakes are more accurate and can even replicate the movements of high-end watches.

  1. Avoid counterfeiting

Fake watches tend to have coarser sounds while high-end watches have a mechanism assembled with such care that each movement produces a harmonious sound.

  1. The certificate and serial number.

Having the certificate and having the serial number of the watch is obviously a great proof of authenticity.

  1. Shapes and details.

The size of the case and other components should be consistent with the model and specification, as well as details such as the clasps of the bracelet that should be smooth, the spacing between the dials, among others.

When they introduced the Royal Oak in the 1970s, many thought it was a rather daring proposition, and we’ll explain why…

Betting on a high-end watch in steel that also did not hide its screws and for a cost of over 3,000 dollars seemed crazy, but the success has been undoubted.

It became a milestone among luxury sports watches in steel and meant a challenge for other watchmakers who immediately sought to match the success of the piece.
