So far, 2024 stands as a testament to Audemars Piguet’s commitment to excellence and innovation. First, the arrival of Ilaria Resta as the new CEO adds a fresh perspective to the brand’s legacy, while a commendable 4th place in Morgan Stanley’s prestigious Top 20 Swiss Watch Company Rankings solidifies its standing in the industry.

Now, the unveiling of the new Royal Oak Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon Openworked in 41mm featuring sand gold elevates the brand even further.

With a color that lives somewhere between pink and white gold, this exclusive 18-karat gold alloy, named after the radiant glow of sunlit sand dunes, seamlessly weaves together gold, copper, and palladium, creating an infusion of warmth and radiance depending on the angle of light

As the spotlight falls on super modern Calibre 2972, its openworked bridges and mainplate proudly flaunt a bespoke sand-gold-toned hue, conjuring a spellbinding 3D effect in stark contrast to the rhodium-toned components. Beyond its aesthetic allure, the sand gold alloy stands as a fortress against the ravages of time, resisting discoloration and ensuring an enduring, timeless charm.

On a personal note, I would humbly state that this might be one of the most refined sand gold alloy produced in the watch industry. Check out my hands-on YouTube video for more details and to leave your comment.
