New colours and gemstone combinations are joining Audemars Piguet’s iconic Royal Oak Selfwinding family.
The Swiss watch manufacturer is expanding its 15452 series with two new Royal Oak Selfwinding models in 37mm. The iterations are crafted in white or pink gold and meticulously set with diamonds and colourful gemstones, while the guilloche dial incorporates new grey or beige hues. Two new matching, satin-finished, calfskin leather straps give the final touch to the watches’ original aesthetic – beige for the pink gold version and light grey for the white gold.
The gold bezel is adorned with 40 brilliant-cut gemstones for a smooth and harmonious gradation. The stones have been individually cut and polished to present clear and sharp angles before being set by hand on the bezel. They reflect light to create unique optical effects, ranging from red and orange tints to pink hues, depending on the model.
The case of the 18-carat pink gold model is paved with 124 brilliant-cut diamonds down to the bracelet connecting studs. The new beige hue of the Grande Tapisserie dial echoes the pink gold case for contemporary flair.
The two pink gold applied hour markers at 12 o’clock are also set with brilliant-cut diamonds. For its part, the pink gold bezel is embellished with 40 yellow sapphires, red garnets and orange spessartite garnets. This vivid gradation – a first for Royal Oak – adds a warm and bright touch.
The 18-carat white gold case and connecting studs of the second reference are also set with 124 brilliant-cut diamonds. The rhodium-toned dial is enhanced by a Grande Tapisserie pattern and applied 18-carat white gold hour markers and hands. The white gold bezel is set with 40 brilliant-cut pink sapphires and rubies, offering a refined and subtle gradation to contrast with the watch’s monochromatic aesthetic.
