ROYAL OAK FROSTED GOLD

ROYAL OAK FROSTED GOLD

40th ANNIVERSARY OF THE WOMEN’S ROYAL OAK !

The ROYAL OAK FROSTED GOLD celebrates the 40th anniversary of JACQUELINE DIMIER’s initial creation.
For that, AUDEMARS PIGUET did a collaboration with CAROLINA BUCCI, a Florentine jewellery designer.

The idea was to integrate the « Florentine technique » on the 1970’s icon and it took several months to find the right execution. The method requires a lot of expertise as a diamond tipped tool beats the gold creating tiny indentations on its surface. That’s how she gets this Marvelous « sparkle effect » almost like diamond dust. One of the critical parts was the bracelet as all parts must remain flexible and also keep their softness.

The final result is breathtaking!
Definitely our favourite Women timepiece of the SIHH 2017.

Two versions are available: This one with a mechanical movement (calibre 3120) offering 60 hours of power reserve and a Quartz one (calibre 2713)
