Never settling for the status quo, Swiss luxury watchmaker Audemars Piguet has now made its previously limited edition 18k white gold Royal Oak Chronograph even more premium with the addition of diamonds.
The design largely remains the same as its predecessor, with an 18k white cold case measuring 38mm in diameter and only 11mm thick. This time around, the brand’s signature octagonal bezel has been adorned with baguette-cut diamonds, creating an even more luxurious offering. Within the bezel sits a light blue “Grande Tapisserie” dial holding three subdials at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, while a date indicator is tucked neatly between 4 and 5 o’clock. The heart of the timepiece comes in the form of a 37-jewel in-house caliber 2385, a fully automatic chronograph carrying a power reserve of 40 hours. Rounding out the watch is a white gold bracelet to match its case.
The new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph Hong Kong Special Edition will be exclusive to the company’s boutiques in Hong Kong and limited to just 10 pieces made.
