How about Richard Mille watches?
A major factor in the success of richard mille replica is the highly recognizable exterior design, especially the "tonneau-shaped" case. This kind of watch case is similar to Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, with a three-layer design of the front case, middle frame, and back cover, which is fixed by longitudinal screws. Even the straps are specially developed to coordinate the case, which perfectly fits the contraction of the case line. So, is the case of richard mille replica a groundbreaking innovation? In fact, it is not, richard mille replica just organically combines "tradition" and "modern".
