Esquire Malaysia Watch Guide - - Brand Story -

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.
