SIHH 2017: Audemars Piguet Diamond Outrage
January 16, 2017
As the third and final part of the Audemars Piguet Haute Joaillerie ladies’ cuff timepiece trilogy – which started with the Dimond Punk in 2015, followed by the Dimond Fury in 2016 – the Diamond Outrage debuts today at SIHH in Geneva.
The Diamond Outrage is available in two different one-of-kind pieces that are crafted in 18K white gold and include prominent spikes set with either diamonds or blue sapphires. Aptly described by Audemars Piguet, the “Diamond Outrage becomes an explosion of stalactites on the wrist.” The sparkling spikes vary in size from 29.30 mm to 40 mm in length, and are produced using the so-called “snow setting” technique, where the diamonds are set so close together that the jewel’s white gold frame appears almost invisible.
The invisible setting, another rare technique, is used for each of the three distinctive baguette-cut diamond points featured on the full diamond version, which creates a floating effect.
Powering both pieces is quartz caliber 2701 that powers hour and minute hands and is 2.50 mm thick. Each dial is mirror polished, with blackened gold hands for the diamond version and blued gold hands for the blue sapphire version.
In total the diamond model (Ref. 67700BC.ZZ.9190BC.01) has 9,923 brilliant-cut diamonds (50.06 carats) and 354 baguette-cut diamonds (15.85 carats). The blue sapphire model (Ref. 67701BC.SS.9191BC.01) has 11,043 brilliant cut sapphires (65.47 carats). Learn more about Audemars Piguet cuff watches.
