The evening ended with a showcase concert by Brocken Back, sending guests off in the crisp Florentine night.The brand celebrated the unveiling of the contemporary timepiece with a gala dinner at Palazzo Vecchio in the presence of actress and brand ambassador Freida Pinto, jewellery designer Carolina Bucci and watch designer Jacqueline Dimier, who created the first Royal Oak for women in 1976. Jasmine Audemars, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors and François-Henry Bennahmias, CEO, welcomed the 200 guests with a dinner imagined by local 3* Chef Annie Féolde.

Carolina Bucci has reinterpreted this technique in jewellery design today while Audemars Piguet’s experts developed it into a horological craft suited to the unique case and bracelet construction of the Royal Oak.The launch of the Royal Oak Frosted Gold enriches Audemars Piguet’s tradition of experimenting with jewellery techniques. Its defining feature resides in its shimmering sparkle, which comes from a surface treatment process rooted in an ancient gold hammering technique, also called the Florentine technique. audemars-piguet-royal-oak-frosted-gold
