This new model from Audemars Piguet is designed for women who appreciate the value of time and the time that has been invested in the craftsmanship of the watch.
The Royal Oak 41 mm comes in a sensuous pink gold case masterfully gem-set with 166 diamonds. The distinctive octagonal bezel, held in place by its hallmark hexagonal headed screws, features a series of brilliant-cut diamonds expertly set between each screw.
The integrated lugs that soften the geometry of the case have also been set alight with diamonds of differing sizes as has the folding clasp. In all, 511 grade IF diamonds (4.16 carats) decorate the external surfaces.
The diamond pavé dial continues with the opulent theme and has been set with 345 diamonds (1.07 carats) arranged in a circular pattern, interrupted at 3 o’clock to accommodate the date window. The hands, treated with a luminescent coating for maximum legibility, circle the dial with its applied pink gold hour markers and minute indices.
As beautiful within as without, a proprietary self-winding manufacture movement -calibre 3120- powers the hours, minutes, central seconds and date functions. The transparent sapphire crystal case back allows for a full view of the automatic movement with its gold 22-carat axe-shaped rotor.
Once again the choice of strap, crafted from grey alligator leather provides a striking contrast to the pink gold case and gives the watch a unique metallic feel, very in vogue this year.
