When it comes to the German high-end watch modification brand AET REMOULD, the first thing that comes to mind is the various Rolex Daytona watches they have modified. Shell Green Face Daytona. But it may also be because we have seen too many Daytona modified by AET REMOULD, which leads us to preconceived that the brand is to change Daytona. Compared with the Rolex watch replaced by a transparent case, the degree of surprise is still relatively high); however, in addition to these two brands, recently AET REMOULD has also actively expanded their territory, expanding the watch change object to AUDEMARS PIGUET Audemars Piguet, launched a The new work “Lochagos” based on the ROO 44mm chronograph.
Lochagos is the symbol of ancient Greek Sparta’s brave and good warriors, so AET REMOULD with such a legendary figure as the theme, naturally want to make the watch look imposing, just like the old people when they heard the Spartan army. a feeling of. The appearance of this ROO 44mm chronograph is remade with sapphire crystal. Just by looking at the outside of the watch, you know that this work should not be easy to do, because the Royal Oak Offshore case is full of layers, including the octagonal watch. The ring, the faceted crown shoulder, and the button base, etc., must not be easy to make from hard sapphire material, and this watch has a special feature that AET REMOULD even has chronograph buttons. Made of sapphire material, chronographs with sapphire cases are often paired with metal chronograph buttons. This detail highlights the craftsmanship of the watch again. As for the transparent bezel, the series of famous exposed screws are still locked. On the one hand, it has undergone in-depth transformation, but it is also committed to maintaining the identification characteristics of the work itself.
AET REMOULD is based on AP’s Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph, and launches a modified watch with the theme of the famous Spartan warrior. The octagonal-shaped bezel and case, including the chronograph pushers, are reinterpreted with sapphire material, which is quite special.
There is a clear contrast between the dial and the case. AET REMOULD uses red and yellow to represent the blood and the warrior’s armor respectively. The former is applied to the scale ring on the outer edge of the dial, the small dial pointer and the central chronograph large second hand, etc. The latter appears At 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock, the sub-dial scale ring – the pattern on the top is inspired by the shield of the Spartan warrior, creating a fighter’s spirit without anger. In addition, there will be some red and yellow irregular patterns on the open face plate, as if to emphasize the “victory results” obtained by the soldiers when they returned from the expedition, pushing the momentum of the entire watch to the apex.
Interestingly, when AET REMOULD creates modified Rolex watches, it usually retains the original brand logo on the dial of the watch, but this ROO 44mm chronograph “Lochagos” directly replaces the AP logo with AET REMOULD’s own logo. The consideration is unknown, but this may affect the willingness of collectors to some extent. After all, the original brand lineage is also an important element when starting this type of modified watch, otherwise it will look like a tribute watch made by his own factory or even a watch. There are doubts about fake products, but because AET REMOULD also has a certain reputation in the market, it will not make people think that it is a plagiarized work of unknown origin.
Due to the difficulty of making the sapphire case, the ROO 44mm Chronograph “Lochagos” is produced in limited quantities. It is hoped that starting from this watch, AET REMOULD can develop more replica watches luxury from other AP series and even other brands in the future, so that we can learn more rare creativity and craftsmanship.
