Is it comparable to a rock? This substantial timepiece stands out as one of the top-selling AP replicas. Managing such a sizable watch might pose a challenge for many individuals. Perhaps, acquiring one could be contemplated not just for its aesthetic appeal but also as a practical self-defense tool, potentially more effective than knives or other sharp objects. Upon receiving this watch, its weight becomes immediately apparent, noticeably heavier than most other full stainless steel watches. When worn on my slender wrist, the sensation is akin to having a stone tethered to my hand.
Crafted by the J12 factory, also known as JF among enthusiasts, this replica has garnered recognition. I’ve emphasized in previous posts that each watch factory excels in specific models. For instance, Noob dominates with Submariner and Daytona, while V6 shines with Ballon Bleu and Hublot. When seeking an AP replica, especially one with Secs@12, it’s crucial to turn your attention to J12. This is an undeniable reality. Opting for a Hublot Big Bang replica from a different factory than V6 might result in numerous issues, jeopardizing the watch’s longevity. Hence, for the finest Submariner and Daytona, Noob stands as the singular choice, and for an AP ROO replica, J12 is unequivocally the preferred option.
Regarding the craftsmanship of this AP replica, it attains a flawless ten. When it comes to the finish of an AP replica watch, J12 stands unparalleled, outshining other factories. The precision in both the case and bezel is of the highest caliber, evident when you have the watch in hand. The intricate edges and corners on the AP case pose a challenge for replication, but J12 excels in this aspect. The case’s quality is so commendable that one might consider it interchangeable with that of an authentic watch. The bezel, constructed from genuine black ceramic and brushed to perfection, seamlessly complements the rose gold tone of the case.
About movement, it is a clone 3126, which is modified with a Chinese chronograph movement. Check the decoration on movement plates and auto rotor, it looks beautiful and already very close to genuine AP 3126. However, there is one problem of this movement, whose self-winding efficiency is not high, means that you need to wind the watch every day, maybe more than once each day, to keep accurate time. And do not use the chronograph function too frequently, that will cause movement issues.
