It was the year 2003, the Beastie Boys and Red Hot Chilli Peppers were headlining Coachella, social media was barely in its infancy, and high watchmaking was an extremely niche category known to very few. Pharrell took to the stage with N.E.R.D wearing a yellow gold UK perfect replica Audemars Piguet skeleton Perpetual Calendar Royal Oak. This was the early 2000s, the beginning of the serious Offshore era but nobody in the mainstream wanted a cheap fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, certainly not a skeletonized QP. Ahead of his time much?
This early skeletonized 1:1 fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendars is extremely rare; luxury replica Audemars Piguet reports that only 126 examples of the ref. 25636 were ever produced in yellow gold.
Here he is pictured below in 2002 wearing an even rarer platinum version, which is one of only 34 examples that Swiss made fake Audemars Piguet UK produced.
