Audemars Piguet and Carolina Bucci create a limited-edition Royal Oak in yellow gold
The creative partnership of Audemars Piguet and Italian jewelry designer Carolina Bucci delivers another surprise with this eponymous 37mm limited edition Royal Oak.
The shiny, silver-toned mirror, framed with the shimmering sparkle of a Frosted Gold case and bracelet, replaces the trademark “Tapisserie” Royal Oak dial. Described by its designer as “rebellious” in character, this is an attention-grabbing piece, made in the image of a woman of today: spontaneous, true-to-life and totally unapologetic.
“I designed the Royal Oak Frosted Gold in response to a challenge from Audemars Piguet,” said Carolina Bucci.
The mirrored dial is the most unforgiving component; only perfection will do. Carolina’s complete satisfaction with the result, which, has surpassed her own expectations, is testament to the Manufacture’s rigorous quality control, Carolina being known for her eagle eye and uncompromising standards.
Carolina Bucci’s original 2016 Frosted Gold design celebrated 40 years of Royal Oak for women. With this limited edition of 300 pieces, her design evolves in new directions. For the first time, the ‘diamond dust’ finish appears in yellow gold—the designer’s favorite version of this precious metal.
