Audemars Piguet – Royal Oak Frosted Gold Self-winding 37mm and Royal Oak Frosted Gold Quartz 33mm

Posted by

Frosted Gold was introduced by Audemars Piguet and jewellery designer Carolina Bucci. It’s a time-honoured gold hammering technique favoured by, and named after, Florentine goldsmiths. Audemars Piguet craftspeople adapted it for the Royal Oak and the first Frosted Gold model was launched in November 2016. Since then, the allure of its ‘diamond-dust’ sparkle and contemporary aesthetics has made it an increasingly popular finish with a promising future.

Now Audemars Piguet expands the Frosted Gold series of watches adding two new watch models: Royal Oak Frosted Gold Self-winding 37mm and Royal Oak Frosted Gold Quartz 33mm.
