Audemars Piguet - an ‘out­rage’ in jew­ellery time­pieces

– an ‘out­rage’ in jew­ellery time­pieces

The Luxury Collection - - Contents -

Audemars Piguet’s haute jew­ellery time­pieces have al­ways carved unique niches for them­selves. Their lat­est of­fer­ing, Di­a­mond Out­rage, lives up to their well earned rep­u­ta­tion and in­deed raises it by sev­eral notches.

Di­a­mond Out­rage is the third and fi­nal de­sign in the tril­ogy of haute jew­ellery time­pieces that com­menced with Di­a­mond Punk in 2015, fol­lowed by Di­a­mond Fury in 2016.

A cuff watch, Di­a­mond Out­rage epit­o­mizes its name with its ex­plo­sive style that marks a shift in haute jew­ellery watch de­sign. It is pre­sented in two unique 18 carat white gold pieces, fully set with di­a­monds or with blue sap­phires.

Glint­ing with the icy fas­ci­na­tion of the Valee de Joux in win­ter, its struc­ture is set with pre­cious stones in a bril­liant ar­ray of cuts. On the full di­a­mond ver­sion, the in­clu­sion of three baguette-set spikes shines a vi­brant light on the out­ra­geous style of this futuristic de­sign. A rarely used tech­nique called ‘in­vis­i­ble set­ting’, is used for each of the three dis­tinc­tive baguette cut di­a­mond points. The lin­ear cut di­a­monds ap­pear to float, be­ing ap­par­ently held in place with no set­ting. The abil­ity to cre­ate this ef­fect is the fruit of years of pa­tient train­ing by ex­pert jewel­ers, which is what sets Aude­mar­spiguet well apart in a clear class of its own.
