The production method of the first series also illustrates a more traditional manufacturing method, Audemars Piguet is gradually modernizing throughout its life cycle. One such example is the way bracelets are made. Compared with later series, the chain links are more complicated to make, but the final design is longer.Audemars Piguet ROYAL OAK Replica Watches

Although Audemars Piguet did not share its production data, the first series of examples are particularly difficult to obtain. Omar has been dealing with the medium-sized Royal Oak for ten years, and he has only handled two cars himself. He estimated that less than 500 pieces were produced from steel, and the production figures for all metals remained within the three-digit range.


The flat Audemars Piguet logo is the most distinctive feature of the first series. Reminiscent of the manufacturer's retro work, it is more discrete than the later execution of the brand logo, which is significantly bolder in design. Later in this article, we will look at how this name is applied to the dial and the rest of the dial making process.

Another key sign of the first series of dials is the smaller checkered pattern called "Petite Tapisserie". It turns out that this more subtle dial texture is favored by many collectors, rather than larger styles, which will appear in a later reference. In general, the dials of the first series only offer a very narrow range of colors, depending on the metal of the case. In steel, only the original blue-gray and white dials are known. Very similar to the original reference 5402, it is well known that the dark dials have slightly different colors between different examples, some are closer to black, and some show more blue tones.replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Watches

In gold, you can find white, gray and gold dials, the last one to create a satisfying monochromatic look. As we all know, two-tone models of steel and gold are only equipped with gray and gold dials. The only other dial variation in the first series we know of is slate gray, which appears in the rare two-color tantalum and rose case.

When we visited the archives of Audemars Piguet, we had the opportunity to process the catalog sent to retailers by Audemars Piguet, detailing their different models and dial configurations. A catalog from 1991 shows that the previous reference model 14700 was equipped with a series of diamond-encrusted dials for gold and two-tone steel and yellow gold models. Although we don't know whether these were used in the first series 14790, there are reasons to believe that there may be some diamond-encrusted dials.

When applied to the dial, you will also find that the long hour markers are full of luminous light. As a general rule of thumb, the tone of the luminous light should roughly match the hands, but this is not a guarantee, because the aging speed of the dial and hands may be different. You can also find the application "AP" logo at 12 o'clock. The gap between the two letters is filled with a thin luminous strip. These are important not only because they are inherited from 14700, but also because they are transferred later in the production run.replica diamond watch

The first series 14790 was always produced with so-called "thin" hands. The thickness of the minute and hour hands of the first series are exactly the same, corresponding to the thickness of the applied luminous-filled hour markers. Later, Audemars Piguet's "thick" hands were introduced throughout the second series and at some point in the series, and used throughout the third series. These thicker hands are also used as repair parts, so they can be found in some early examples.

The easiest way to find the difference is to check whether the luminous thickness on the hour and minute hands is the same as the thickness of the luminous on the applied time scale. You can also check the bottom of the minute hand, because the lumen of the thick pointer is further away from the center pivot, while the thin pointer is closer. Again, this is another feature that allows us to draw parallel lines between the first series 14790 and the reference. 5402, the original pointer also showed a slender, subtle outline.replica watches sale

Another change we observed in the first series of hands was the difference in the weight of the second hand. The earliest example seems to be a complete straight second hand, while later models can find a horn almost in the shape of a pyramid. This second hand with a pyramid weight is used from the second series as part of normal production. In the first series, this may be a sign of Audemars Piguet's slow integration of updated components, or it may be a sign of the second hand being replaced in service, although no one knows for sure.

Case, bracelet and crown

The first major difference that should be noted when examining the case of any first series is the unsigned crown. As we will see below, later models are signed with the initials "AP" on the crown, while the first series should be clear and unmarked.

One small detail of the first series of bracelets is not obvious, it is the screws that hold the detachable links in place. When removing a link from any Royal Oak bracelet, you need to remove a screw to loosen the link. The difference between the first series and subsequent series is that for the former, you will find two screws on both sides of the link. Both need to be unscrewed from the center part of the link where they are fixed to release the link.RICHARD MILLE RM 50-04 Kimi Räikkönen

This is what other manufacturers can see because it is considered more resistant to bending and general wear and tear over time. In later series, these two screws were replaced by an easier, faster, and cheaper production. This is just to show how the 14790 truly became a transition model from retro production technology to modern technology.

The next focus of these models is the clasp. All the first series will have a "hollow" buckle, the sides of the buckle are similar to ladders. They should all carry similar series of stamps. On the bar on the inside of the buckle, there should be a stamp with "S6" written on it. We assume that this is the type of steel used, that is, tool grade steel. best replica watches

Then there should be a "Swiss Made" seal on the larger exterior, as opposed to the "Steel Inox" seal, between the two should be the Gay Frères logo. This should be the old style. There is a bust of a ram between G and F, both inside an oval. For those who don't know, Gay Frères is probably the most legendary bracelet manufacturer in the 20th century. He made some bracelets for the original Royal Oak and Nautilus, along with some of the most sought-after more classic bracelets. Patek Philippe reference.

It is indeed a special thing to find their traditional logo on the first series 14790 buckle. The last part of the buckle is the outer spring lock, which is a steel rectangle with "AP" engraved on it. You will see that the first series is slightly smaller and more rectangular than the subsequent series.replica Breitling Chronomat B01 42 watches
