Audemars Piguet Historian Michael Friedman And the Top three Of Audemars Piguet WatchesInside the mid-1990's, when my passion for mechanical replica watches really removed, I bought as much magazines and watch books I could truthfully possibly find as information on the world wide web was rather hard to come by and never so known as it is now. In a couple of these generic watch books, giving the various readers an overview of different watch brands and models, I always experienced a couple of favorite brands I would like to learn about. One too was Audemars Piguet. Not just their octagonal Royal Oak models that I seem to have been appreciating in the first moment on (which is not one common course of action) having said that i also studied their round and vintage models with complications with great interest. fake iwc watch Although I'd like to believe that I can't be based marketing campaigns and testimonials, it actually was the testimonial of Bruno Rubinksi at a late 1990's Audemars Piguet catalogs that taught me to be want a Royal Oak 'Jumbo' (search for more details on it here). It will take another Decade before I purchased (and was in the position to) this Royal Oak 'Jumbo' reference 15202 I desired.Our friends at Hodinkee and Bexsonn are actually giving quite some attention to vintage Audemars Piguet and i also have always make out the print with great pleasure. In my opinion, it appears that - especially back in the day - Audemars Piguet was gps unit perfect same audience as being the other big two (Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin) using small and clean round replica watches with complications. Today at Audemars Piguet, the complications and the want to develop new that has been enhanced complications and solutions is clear, nevertheless the packaging is a touch different than it truly is from those other two big names. While you could claim that the Royal Oak is similar to Patek's Nautilus and Vacheron's Overseas, their Royal Oak Offshore Concept and Laptimer references can not be matched to your of these other brands' replica watches. Although I've got great respect for Audemars Piguet's inventions in addition to their craftsmanship in general, I have personally more curiosity about the harder 'toned down' 39mm Royal Oak models versus the bulky and loud Royal Oak Offshore collection and Concept timepieces.Sometimes I do wish that Audemars Piguet might find a means to use those vintage models for current collections. You will find a Millenary and Jules Audemars collection (including models with complications), they can be still relatively 'loud' to the classic replica watches they created in earlier times.In Geneva, I did the ability to speak to Audemars Piguet's historian Michael Friedman. Following a career at renown auction houses like Christie's and Antiquorum, Michael Friedman started as being a historian at Audemars Piguet in 2013 after finding yourself in touch with them already for a long period. Traveling worldwide (including to Le Brassus, where Audemars Piguet has their scalp quarters) but his home town is completely York City.In most cases when you ask the CEO of your watch brand about his favorite replica watches in the collection, he'll always come up with models that have been introduced . I believed this may be different while i ask a historian. So, these are, the most notable 3 absolute favorites Audemars Piguet references by Michael Friedman.1. Audemars Piguet reference 5516Audemars Piguet Reference 5516 - image by Christopher Beccan / Bexsonn.comTruth to be told that it reference 5116 didn't sound familiar initially when Michael Friedman mentioned this as his pick. However, a fast vertical lookup around my brain said until this Perpetual Calendar was covered by some websites. But in truth, Used to miss the auction of Christie's in December where a gold 5516 fetched $545,000 USD. The above 5516 is from the Marcus Margulies collection, covered here on Bexsonn. The Audemars Piguet ref. 5516 is simply stunning watch using its beautiful dial and Valjoux 13"'VZSSQ based movement.Audemars Piguet started making perpetual calendar wristreplica watches from 1950 onwards. From a few things i understood from Michael Friedman watches , Audemars Piguet only started using reference numbers in 1951. So those first perpetual calendar wristreplica watches didn't contain a specific number. Audemars Piguet has a terrific write-up on their website about these ref 5516 perpetual calendar replica watches with leap year indication. I know why it is certainly one of Michael Friedman's favorite Audemars Piguet replica watches ever.Audemars Piguet 5516 with Tiffany dial - image by Audemars Piguet2. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 5402 A-SeriesAudemars Piguet Royal Oak 5402A, 1972 (caliber 2121).The storyplot on the Royal Oak is told many times, even here on Fratello Watches (click here) how about we not repeat whatever we showed already on this iconic sports watch. This A-series Royal Oak is simply amazing was another pick by Michael Friedman. Actually, it's his watch the truth is here. This 5402A is a lovely condition and shows some patina on the dial. Actually, I didn't notice that clear when I held the watch during my hands in Geneva, but about the macro shots that photographer Bert Buijsrogge took, it can be clearly visible. It adds character to the watch!Now, it's not possible to go awry with many of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak "Jumbo" or "Extra-Thin" references (5402, 14802, 15002, 15202) having its beautiful caliber 2121 movement. But this 5402 A-series is just a imagine a watch, not simply for Michael Friedman. This Royal Oak reference led the way for everyone other Royal Oak and Royal Oak Offshore models. Nothing compares to the original though.3. Audemars Piguet reference 5528Audemars Piguet reference 5528, 1951 (movement from 1885).Reference 5528 can be an 18 carat gold minute repeater wrist watch manufactured in 1951 by Audemars Piguet. This 38mm watch is known as 'oversized', when compared to the other references from this time. There have been only three reference 5528 replica watches produced, and also as written here by Michael Friedman, they may not be all three identical. This has been really common, to have minor changes from the same reference.Anyway, this 5528 uses a movement that's already developed and made in the late 1800s and found in different replica watches before it finished up with this 1951 Audemars Piguet. This movement is signed "Audemars Piguet, Geneve breitling chronospace automatic , no. 8712" and stated in 1885. The 1st life span of this movement started in 1889 if this was sold being a pendent watch. It returned for the Audemars Piguet workshops again in 1904. In March 1921, Audemars Piguet re-used the movement inside an Art Deco case. Eventually it founds its long ago to Audemars Piguet again and it was then utilized in this 1951 reference 5528. Audemars Piguet produced only 47 of those small minute repeating movements between 1882 and 1900. In 2014 this reference 5528 was professionally restored to get auctioned at Christies in May 2015. It fetched a stunning $651,051.- USD. I told Bert this after making the photos in Geneva, to prevent him from getting nervous.
