Audemars Piguet once again collaborated with Italian jewellery designer Carolina Bucci to launch the Royal Oak Frosted Gold Selfwinding Carolina Bucci Limited Edition Watch 15454BA.GG.1259BA.02. This highly recognizable watch has been described by its designers as having a “rebellious” spirit, depicting the modern woman’s casual, real and self-contained image. The watch is debuted, twhich is a tribute to the modern women who fully express the person she really is. This is a reflection on modern women.
The dial design of the Royal Oak 37MM Frosted Gold Carolina Bucci Watch 15454BA.GG.1259BA.02 has changed the original Tapisserie decoration of the Royal Oak series and replaced it with a dazzling silver face.
Carolina Bucci designed a new mirrored case for the watch, which is inlaid with frost gold AP lettering, making the box itself a decorative piece.
In 2016, Carolina Bucci designed the brand’s first frosted gold watch to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Royal Oak Collection women’s wristwatches. This time, the new watch has a limited edition of 300 pieces, which is evident in the new design. For the first time, it creates a diamond dust effect on gold material and becomes the favorite style of Carolina Bucci.
This mirror dial design is definitely a breakthrough for the brand. Carolina Bucci said that the source of this design idea is bold and innovative: “The first frost gold design comes from the Royal Oak series case and strap, and then “roughened” to perfectly interpret the imperfect craftsmanship of Florence and Switzerland. And this time, the texture of the Tapeserie dial is replaced with a smooth face, the concept is to create something interesting and unexpected, from the symbol of the image of modern women, I know those who like topical accessories will love it. The mirror is always interacting with the surrounding environment. With the clothing you wear, the decoration of the house, the light, the different time of the day, and the weather, the women will never stop.”
Bold innovation also brings technical challenges. The mirror dial is the most exquisite accessory, only the most exquisite craftsmanship can be mastered. The design makes Carolina happy and satisfied while the brand’s spirit of perfection in quality control complement each other, highlighting Carolina’s unique vision and uncompromising pursuit of standards.
Carolina Bucci said that the design concept of the watch still comes from bold innovation: the texture of the Tapeserie plaid decorative dial is instead of a smooth mirror, the concept is to create something interesting and unexpected, which is a symbol of the modern women . “The Royal Oak Collection is my best choice. I wear it all the time; it is part of my personal style, just like my personal mark. To break the rules, you must first master them.”
Audemars Piguet Chairman Jasmine Audemars has always been love frosted gold watch, and since 2016 she has worn the first generation of 37mm self-winding watches. “I am amazed at the extraordinary creativity behind the Frosted Gold watch. It is not only a work of art, but also a highlight of advanced craftsmanship.

Now you can regard your watch as mirror, do you need to take a selfie?”
