Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Frosted Gold Flying Tourbillon

Audemars Piguet presents a new take on its women’s Royal Oak Concept Flying Tourbillon, which pursues the collection’s interweaving of refined feminine aesthetics and complicated micro-mechanics.

For the first time, the Royal Oak Concept’s case is adorned with Frosted Gold—an ancient Florentine jewellery technique revisited by jewellery designer Carolina Bucci.  Tiny indentations are created on the gold surface with a diamond-tipped tool, giving a sparkle effect similar to that of precious stones, like diamond dust.

Superposed to the bezel’s polished bevels, this finishing highlights the watch’s design codes, while capturing attention from a distance.

The shimmering case nicely frames the multi-layered dial composed of four juxtaposed circles of increasing size and graded hues of blue emanating from the flying tourbillon cage at 6 o’clock. The graded nuances and sunburst motif further accentuate the dial’s depth and refinement.

The flying tourbillon cage also presents a modern design with open-worked gold-toned circles topped with an elegant touch of brilliant-cut diamonds. No hour-markers have been included on the dial to enhance the purity of this contemporary design.

Combining tradition and modernity, these watches are powered by hand-wound Manufacture calibre 2964. The movement’s circular motif, visible through the sapphire caseback recalls the dial’s pattern. The alternation of sandblasting and satin-brushing also echoes the finishes of the Frosted Gold case and sunburst dial.

The timepieces are adorned with a blue “large square-scale” alligator strap for an elegant contrast. An additional blue textured rubber strap with constellation motif, recalling the Frosted Gold case, is also available.
