High jewellery, horology and design cues from nature have united in Audemars Piguet’s Haute Joaillerie collection since 2013. Started in 2015, the Diamond trilogy (Diamond Punk
, Diamond Fury
and Diamond Outrage
) was inspired by the wintery and rugged landscape of the Vallée de Joux, and combined traditional gem-setting techniques with unconventional design for a distinctive effect of elegance, strength and power.
The inside rings are covered with graded blue sapphires and brilliant-cut diamonds
In the domed centre nestles the 2 cm dark blue sapphire-set globe which, when inverted, reveals the watch’s 18-carat white gold dial paved with graded orange sapphires. This spherical case houses a tiny quartz calibre.
The bracelet is made of articulated diamond-set components, for maximum flexibility and comfort.
The sapphire crystal dome can be turned manually to reveal its orange-sapphire dial
