Swiss Haute Horlogerie Manufacturer Audemars Piguet collaborated with the Italian jewelry designer Carolina Bucci on a new limited edition 34 mm Royal Oak Selfwinding in black ceramic. A dial of the timepiece is endowed with a unique multi-colored mirror effect that pays tribute to the iconic Tapisserie design. This limited edition is designed for both men and women and is available exclusively in Audemars Piguet boutiques and AP Houses.
The new limited-edition Royal Oak Selfwinding watch is the third collaboration between Audemars Piguet and Carolina Bucci. The designer’s famous hammering technique Frosted Gold enriches an all-black ceramic piece with a surprising dial. The dial appears black at first glance, but on closer inspection, it reveals a multi-colored spectrum that brings the Tapisserie effect to life in the ever-changing light. A sapphire plate decorated with little squares achieved through micro-structuring is added on top of the brass dial plate to create rich rainbow-colored plays of light. A golden metallization is also applied onto the back of the sapphire plate to create a mirror effect. The pattern of iridescent colors ranges from dial to dial, making each design unique.
The black ceramic case and bracelet feature hexagonal pink gold screws that secure the bezel and create an elegant contrast of colors. All the components of the case and bracelet are finished with the Manufacture’s signature satin finishing that is paired with polished chamfers for maximum play on light.
The titanium and sapphire caseback is engraved with the inscription “Limited Edition Carolina Bucci” and reveals the Calibre 5800 beneath, which indicates the hours, minutes, seconds and date. In keeping with the finish on the screws, hour-markers and hands, the 22-carat pink gold oscillating weight features elegant microbead-blasted, polished, and satin finishes.
This limited edition comes in a presentation box that has also been created by the jewelry designer.
