ROYAL OAK FROSTED GOLD
Full disclosure guys; this model was actually made for women, but for some reason, the finishing works really well in a men’s model too. This is Audemars Piguet’s new finishing technique called Frosted Gold. Basically, they use a machine with a diamond tip to hammer millions of tiny indentations onto the case and the bracelet (only where the satin finish would usually be) and the result is a really blinged-up watch without any diamonds. The technique is an ancient Florentine one that jewellery designer, Carolina Bucci, uses on her designs. This version here is in a 37MM case, but just push it to 40MM and you’ve got a pretty sweet men’s model too.
