Royal Oak cel­e­brates its 40th an­niver­sary this year with a touch of glam­our in the form of a frosted gold ad­di­tion, by way of Floren­tine jew­elry de­signer Carolina Bucci. Avail­able in 33- and 37mm ver­sions, the new frosted gold Royal Oak comes in both white and rose gold, re­main­ing true to its clas­sic Royal Oak de­sign. The jew­elry tech­nique pro­vides a cloak of shimmer pro­duced by a sur­face treat­ment stem­ming from an an­cient gold ham­mer­ing tech­nique, other­wise known as the Floren­tine tech­nique, and rein­ter­preted by Bucci. Tap­ping the gold with a diamond-tipped tool pro­duces tiny hol­lows in the metal that re­sults in an ef­fect sim­i­lar to pre­cious stones, but does not di­min­ish the strong lines of the Royal Oak.
