Swiss Haute Horlogerie Manufacturer Audemars Piguet is proud to present a new limited edition 34 mm Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Carolina Bucci in black ceramic. This timepiece is the fruit of the latest collaboration between the Manufacture and Carolina Bucci. In celebration of the Royal Oak’s fiftieth anniversary, the Italian jewellery designer has created a dial endowed with a unique multi-coloured mirror effect paying tribute to the iconic Tapisserie design. The result is as unexpected as it is elegant. This limited edition is designed for both men and women and is available exclusively in Audemars Piguet boutiques and AP Houses.
For her third collaboration with Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Carolina Bucci has left behind her hammering technique, known as Frosted Gold, to enrich an all-black ceramic piece with a surprising dial. Always looking to meet new challenges, she decided to focus on contrasts. At first glance, the dial appears black, but on closer inspection it reveals a multi-coloured spectrum that brings the Tapisserie effect to life in the ever-changing light. To reach this result, a sapphire plate adorned with little squares achieved through micro-structuring is added on top of the brass dial plate to create rich rainbow-coloured plays of light. A golden metallisation, specially developed for the occasion, is also applied onto the back of the sapphire plate to create a mirror effect and shines light onto the dial. The pattern of iridescent colours varies from dial to dial, making each design unique. This limited edition comes in a presentation box that has also been designed by Carolina Bucci. For this special occasion, the jewellery designer wanted to use the Tapisserie pattern in relief, going into the finest details, to pay homage to the 1972 classic.
Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet has tapped once again the Florentine jewellery designer Carolina Bucci to create a limited edition Royal Oak Selfwinding in black ceramic. Limited to just 300 pieces, this timepiece is housed in a 34 mm case and comes with a multicoloured dial refracting light like a prism’s rainbow in the dark of night. The rainbow is achieved through a sapphire plate of micro-structured squares that rests on top of the brass dial plate.
As part of the continued focus on the Royal Oak’s 50th birthday, Audemars Piguet recently announced a brand-new collaboration based on the 34mm black ceramic Royal Oak. Designed in partnership with Carolina Bucci, the aptly-named Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Carolina Bucci Limited Edition offers up a vibrant, almost electric rainbow sapphire dial that flows across the spectrum of color while retaining a simplified elemental take on AP’s signature Tapisserie dial.
