BBR Factory Replica Audemars Piguet Perpetual Calendar 26574 Review

Sharing is caring!

The Audemars Piguet Perpetual Calendar 26574 is a complex watch with numerous functions. In the replica market, few factories produce copies of this model. Previously, only the APS factory made this replica, and while the quality was excellent, it had a notable flaw: the hand with an arrow tip in the center. On the authentic watch, this hand indicates the current week of the year, but on the APS replica, it functions as a second hand, sweeping across the dial. Now, the BBR factory has addressed this error, making all functions accurate. Some people are very enthusiastic about this replica watch, but is it worth purchasing from BBR right away? I don’t believe so.

The AP 26574 is highly intricate, and even the genuine version has a high repair rate due to its complex movement. Therefore, it is unreasonable to expect the newly released BBR replica to work perfectly without any issues. In summary, the replica watch needs to be tested; if there are few complaints about it, then it would be a good time to buy one. For now, I still recommend choosing the APS factory’s version, despite its significant flaw with the hand.

I’ve watched several video reviews of this new replica, and one or two dealers mentioned that BBR’s quality control isn’t perfect, with some minor issues present. To achieve full functionality, the movement required more modifications, which can lead to reduced stability and potential future problems. Although APS made a mistake with the hand, the functions and movement have already been tested for stability. Both BBR and APS use the Miyota 9015 as the base movement in the replica. The BBR version measures 11.5mm in thickness, while the Fake APS is only 10.5mm thick, making it closer to the genuine watch’s thickness.

Functions like time, date, month, week, and moon phase can be easily adjusted. Pull the crown to the second position to adjust the central “week” hand, and pull it out to the last position to adjust the time. As the hour hand moves, the moon phase indicator, small date hand, and small week hand will also move accordingly. There are several buttons on the case for quick adjustments to the corresponding functions, but avoid pressing them too frequently. Also, make adjustments on the replica between 6 am and 2 pm. There are various dial colors to choose from, as shown in the pictures below.
