Audemars Piguet presents two new limited editions of its 39 mm Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin model in full diamond setting. These two variations are an evolution of the Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin model, revealed in 2018.
The 18-carat white gold timepiece is paved with 1,528 brilliant-cut diamonds for a total of ~8.3 carats, which adorn the case, the bezel, the dial and the bracelet. The same gemsetting can be found on the 18-carat yellow gold model, but this time, the timepiece is entirely covered with yellow sapphires for a total of ~10.4 carats. The Manufacture’s artisans have opted exclusively for brilliant-cut stones, giving these two models perfect uniformity. The two timepieces are also the embodiment of “a river”, in the high jewellery world, flowing seamlessly through the entire timepiece. Each gemstone has been carefully selected and cut to meet Audemars Piguet’s highest standards in terms of its purity, cut and colour. The brilliance of the diamonds and sapphires is also enhanced by the mirror-polished chamfers outlining the bezel, the case and the individual links of the bracelet.
Both models are powered by the selfwinding Calibre 7121, the Manufacture’s most recent and sophisticated extra-thin selfwinding movement that was unveiled in 2022 for the Royal Oak’s 50th anniversary.
