Description

Audemars Piguet FROSTED 18kt Rose Gold Royal Oak Chronograph Automatic 41mm Boutique Novelty Edition, Hammered 18kt Rose Gold on Bracelet, Royal Blue "Clous de Paris" Grande Tapisserie Dial, Glareproofed Sapphire Crystal, Self-Winding AP Column-Wheel Chronograph Calibre 4401 Movement with Annular Balance Spring, Sapphire Crystal Skeleton Exhibition Case Back. Extremely Rare & Highly Collectible.

I recently reviewed another Audemars Piguet timepiece, also clad in frosted gold, and confess that I am extremely fond of this finish. Frosted gold is achieved by hammering the gold with a diamond-tipped tool to create tiny indentations on the surface. Inspired by an artisanal gold hammering technique used predominantly in jewelry, Florentine jeweller Carolina Bucci was enlisted by AP to create a new habillage for the anniversary of the Royal Oak. The glistening frosty surface, that looks as though the watch had just been taken out of the freezer, is not only beautiful but extremely hard-wearing.

Almost the entire surface of this Royal Oak Chronograph and integrated bracelet are covered in frosted gold, save for the polished flanks of the bezel, the sides of the bracelet and the chronograph pushers and crown. Admittedly, the frosty surface emits a dull, matte sparkle (is that possible?) without the dazzle of diamonds. However, on this particular model, the slightly gritty rose gold surface suggests concrete, very in tune with the original industrial aesthetics of the 1972 model.

The Royal Oak range by Audemars Piguet needs little introduction. Launched in 1972 and designed by the legendary Gérald Genta, it defined a whole new segment of watches. New for 2021 and 2022 is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Chronograph 41mm, which receives the in-house, integrated flyback chronograph movement.

Over the years, watches that were once radical, provocative and challenged the status quo tend to settle down and become the norm. They are so familiar to us, so much a part of the vocabulary of contemporary watchmaking that it’s easy to forget that once upon a time they were the disruptive new boys on the block. The Royal Oak is the perfect case study of this phenomenon, a rebel that settled down to become a classic. I think it’s safe to say that nobody today would describe the Royal Oak as a remotely radical or provocative watch.
