Audemars Piguet Unveils A Series Of High Jewellery Royal Oak Watches

Audemars Piguet

These self winding Audemars Piguet models are perfect for smaller wrists

Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer Audemars Piguet is pleased to introduce its very first Royal Oak models shimmering with snow-set diamonds. Conceived for the smaller wrists, these timepieces in 34mm and 37mm can be had in a choice of 18-carat white or pink gold and covered with a plethora of diamonds of various sizes.Audemars Piguet

The rare and highly technical snow setting creates a luminous effect that highlights the Royal Oak’s multifaceted architecture and recalls a winter wonderland and pairs very well with more formal looks.

Snow Setting Reflecting The Light

Moreover, the new Royal Oak self winding timepieces bring together Haute Horlogerie and Haute Joaillerie. The four timepieces are entirely set with brilliant-cut diamonds ranging from 0.5mm to 2.2mm in diameters and set together using the artisanal technique of snow setting, a first in the Royal Oak collection.Audemars Piguet

The 34mm models also represent the first fully gemset timepieces available in this diameter. While the two 34mm timepieces count a total of 2,255 brilliant-cut diamonds (~6.6 carats), the 37mm models showcase 2,123 stones (~7.2 carats), all adhering to the Manufacture’s highest requirements in terms of clarity, cut and colour.

Glamorous And Scintillating Design

On top of that, the radiance of the snow-set diamonds is accentuated by the watches’ precious metals. Finished in a choice of 18-carat white or pink gold, the four new Royal Oak self winding models present a unique shimmering aesthetic as the mirror-polished chamfers outlining the case, the bezel and the individual links of the bracelet confer an endless play of light.

Elegant Self Winding Movements

These novelties house two of the Manufacture’s latest self winding hours, minutes and seconds mechanisms. The two 34mm models are powered by Calibre 5809 which beats at a frequency of 4 Hz and has 50 hours of autonomy when not on the wrist. For the first time in the 34mm collection, the date indication has also been removed to give pride of place to the refined gemsetting on the dial.Audemars Piguet
