As a follow up to the Royal Oak Frosted Gold 37 mm collection launched in November 2016, Audemars Piguet recently unveiled the Royal Oak Frosted Gold 41 mm in a limited edition of 200 pieces.

The timepiece features an 18K white gold case and blue “Grande Tapisserie” dial and the so-called “frosted” case and bracelet treatment.

According to the manufacture, the textured finish is a surface decoration used on a precious metal, predominantly on jewelry, invented decades ago. “By beating the gold with a diamond-tipped tool, it created tiny indentations on the surface that gave a sparkle effect similar to that of precious stones, like diamond dust.”

The Royal Oak Frosted Gold 41mm limited edition (Ref. 15410BC.GG.1224BC.01) retails for $55,000.
