Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Self-Winding 37

Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Self-Winding 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.
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Self-Winding 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.
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 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Self-Winding 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
