n line with the timepieces launched in 2021 and 2022, this 34mm Royal Oak Selfwinding model features a monochrome aesthetic that is enriched with pink gold details.
Taking advantage of the design evolution introduced in 2022 for the Royal Oak’s 50th anniversary, the dial features a Grand Tapisserie motif that gives it a refined glow. This shimmer is further enhanced by pink gold details on the luminescent hour-markers and hands as well as on the applied Audemars Piguet signature that is created by galvanic growth.
Pink gold is also present around the edge of the sapphire case back, through which a pink gold oscillating weight can be admired. In contrast, the steel folding clasp is enriched with a black colour achieved thanks to a DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) treatment.
Harder than black ceramic, the white variant has pushed the technical limits of Audemars Piguet’s know-how for the case and bracelet to welcome the Manufacture’s distinctive alternation of satin-finishing and polished chamfers.
The brilliance of the white ceramic is highlighted by eight hexagonal screws, especially crafted in 18-carat pink gold, which securely attach the bezel to the case while providing a subtle colour detail. Each of the screws has also been meticulously hand-finished.
Following the new aesthetic codes inaugurated last year, the ceramic bracelet features invisible pins that are directly integrated into the studs to connect them to the links.
The self-winding Calibre 5800 was designed specifically for the Royal Oak 34mm collection that was unveiled in 2020. It offers a 50-hour power reserve and water resistance to a depth of 50 metres. The sapphire case back reveals parts of the mechanism’s components and the dedicated 22-carat pink gold oscillating weight. In keeping with tradition, the movement features high-end decorations such as Côtes de Genève, circular graining, satin and sunray finishes.
Sold exclusively in Audemars Piguet boutiques, this new refined and light reference will please slimmer wrists.
