Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding 37 mm

New colours and gemstone combinations for the Royal Oak Selfwinding in 37mm

Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer Audemars Piguet is pleased to expand its 15452 series with two new Royal Oak Selfwinding models in 37 mm. Crafted in white or pink gold, the two iterations are meticulously set with diamonds and colourful gemstones, while their guilloché dial incorporates new grey or beige hues. A new satin-finished calfskin leather strap completes the watch’s elegant and original aesthetic.

Each of the 40 brilliant-cut gemstones adorning the gold bezel has been meticulously chosen to offer 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. Perfectly aligned, they reflect the everchanging light to create unique optical effects, ranging from red and orange tints to pink hues, depending on the model.

Warm blend or pink gold and coloured gemstones

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 and matching hour-markers and hands, while bestowing the watch with a 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 the Royal Oak – adds a warm and bright touch.

Elegant combination of white gold and graded pink gemstones

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 “Grand Tapisserie” pattern and applied 18-carat white gold hour-markers and hands. As for the pink gold version, the two hour-markers at 12 o’clock are set with brilliant-cut diamonds. To contrast with the watch’s monochromatic aesthetic, the white gold bezel is set with 40 brilliant-cut pink sapphires and rubies offering a refined and subtle gradation. Resolutely feminine, this unique combination will seamlessly sit on the slenderest wrists. “Each gemstone was meticulously chosen to achieve these gradations, while privileging the purest and most vibrant colours. Finding the perfect gradation required months of research. The smooth and harmonious whole it creates pays tribute to the infinite palette of coloured gemstones.” Nathalie Barzilay GIA Graduate Gemologist

New satin-finished straps 

The Manufacture introduces two new matching satin-finished calfskin leather straps – beige for the pink gold version and light grey for the white gold reference. This calfskin strap is highly resistant while offering the same visual aesthetic as a satin strap. The pink or white gold AP folding clasp is also set with 28 brilliant-cut diamonds.

Calibre uniting user comfort and refined aesthetic 

These two models are equipped with the selfwinding Calibre 3120 which encompasses refined finishing including circular graining, polished chamfers and “Côtes de Genève” on the bridges. The 22-carat gold oscillating weight, visible through the sapphire caseback, is adorned with the Audemars and Piguet coats of arms as well as with the engraved AP monogram and long-form signature. This three-hander will grant optimum user comfort with its 60 hours of power reserve and its instant jump date indication. Secured on either side of the main plate, the cross-through balance bridge also ensures great shock resistance. Blending ancestral craftsmanship and contemporary design, these new timepieces radiate sophisticated elegance.
