Celebrating 40 years of a women’s design icon
As the women’s Royal Oak celebrates its 40th anniversary, Audemars Piguet unveiled the new Royal Oak Frosted Gold in Florence on November 9th 2016. A shining reinvention of an iconic design, this contemporary timepiece has been created in collaboration with Florentine jewellery designer, Carolina Bucci.
Audemars Piguet celebrated the unveiling 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 of Audemars Piguet and François-Henry Bennahmias, Chief Executive Officer, welcomed the 200 guests with a dinner imagined by local 3* Chef Annie Féolde. The evening ended with a showcase concert by Brocken Back, sending guests off in the crisp Florentine night.
