Audemars Piguet Unveils a Shining Reinvention

An Italian jewelry designer puts a new spin on the classic

Forty years after launching Royal Oak, Audemars Piguet is celebrating the milestone with an epic collaboration. Italian jewelry designer Carolina Bucci applied her distinct Florentine style to a modern interpretation of Jacqueline Dimier’s original design, resulting in Royal Oak Frosted Gold. The watch’s defining feature is its shimmery finish, created through a surfacing treatment that stems from an ancient gold hammering technique.

Bucci’s dynamic creations call upon her family’s roots in the jewelry and watchmaking trades. The collaboration with Audemars Piguet is proof of her balance of tradition and innovation in timepiece design.
