Audemars Piguet launches the Carolina Bucci Limited Edition
October 22, 2018: Swiss luxury watch making company, Audemars Piguet, partnered with Italian jewellery designer Carolina Bucci, delivering another surprise with an eponymous 37mm limited edition Royal Oak in yellow gold.
The shiny, silver-toned mirror, framed with the shimmering sparkle of a Frosted Gold case and bracelet, replaces the trademark “Tapisserie” Royal Oak dial. Described by its designer as “rebellious” in character, this is an attention grabbing piece, made in the image of a woman of today: spontaneous, true-to-life and absolutely unapologetic.
Ms. Bucci’s original 2016 Frosted Gold design celebrated 40 years of Royal Oak for women. With this limited edition of 300 pieces, her design evolves in new directions. For the first time, the ‘diamond dust’ finish appears in yellow gold—the designer’s favourite version of this precious metal.
There’s novelty in the packaging as well, with a mirrored box bearing a Frosted Gold AP insignia. This mirrored box is also designed by Ms. Bucci, who believes in pulling out luxury watch packaging from the back of the closet to put it on display.
“For me, Royal Oak is the watch. I wear it all the time; it’s part of my style, my signature,” said Ms. Bucci. “It’s a fresh take on an icon made in the image of a contemporary woman. I know women with a great eye for keynote accessories who are going to love this. The mirror is always interacting with its environment, ever-changing according to what clothes you’re wearing, the décor of the room, the lighting, the time of day, the weather."
