After learning the excessively long name of this great new copy watches watch from Audemars Piguet, I began to wonder what Arnold might sound like pronouncing it. The gUBERnator is back in public life now, but his time as California governor never stopped his passion for watches. I heard that being Governor cost him $200 millions dollars. I wonder what part of that went to his watch budget. While Arnold doesn’t only wear Audemars Piguet, he has a deep place in buy watches online his heart for the brand, and has worked with them for a long time.
The Legacy actually represents three important things from a design perspective. I will get to that in a moment. I did want to mention that the proceeds of each of the 1,500 watches (profit after costs) will go to Arnold’s “After School All-Stars” charity foundation. The first thing the watch represents are design cues from each of the previous AP for Arnold watches. What comes to mind first are the hour indicators, side treatments, and of course the size.
Amazing is the comfort level of the watch, as well as the refinement for the price. This isn’t a luxury timepiece, but is a great little workhorse. For people in the active duty world, these have always been popular pieces for being highly legible, durable, and light weight. Coming in a hard polycarbonate case (basically a fancy plastic), this watch is hard, but oh-so-light.
Luminox says the watch is carbon reinforced… never really sure what that meant, but it has a nice molded look that isn’t cheap in swiss watches appearance, and feels nice to the touch. The case is 44mm wide, and looks it thanks to a bezel that isn’t extremely wide (as in some other Luminox watches). The crown and pushers are in polycarbonate as well, but in a metal color as opposed to the black. I would have liked for there to be a Luminox logo on the large crown. The screw-on caseback helps with the watch’s 200 meters of water resistance. It has a mineral crystal.
