Time Unleashed



As the women’s Royal Oak celebrates its 40th anniversary, its time to reinvent an icon! The new Royal Oak Frosted Gold does just that. The watch is a result of a creative collaboration with Florentine jewellery designer, Carolina Bucci. The Royal Oak legacy continues in the watch that Jacqueline Dimier had developed 40 years ago. What is new is the shimmering sparkle, which in turn comes from a surface treatment process rooted in an ancient gold hammering technique, also called the Florentine technique. Carolina Bucci has reinterpreted this technique in jewellery design today while Audemars Piguet’s experts developed it into a horological craft suited to the unique case and bracelet construction of the Royal Oak. The best of both worlds indeed!
