A new polychrome ceramic is introduced, marking a first in the watchmaking industry. This chroma ceramic, which features an unprecedented camouflage aesthetic, was developed by Audemars Piguet’s R&D teams using the latest Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) technology, which allows the ceramic powder to be sintered rapidly.

This innovative technique will also be applied to other materials, notably gold, opening up new creative perspectives for the brand.

Driven by the desire to push the boundaries, this chroma ceramic has been made possible by the latest Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) technology, which significantly reduces the sintering time from several hours to just a few dozen minutes.

Our first multi-coloured ceramic, the result of our materials research, opens up a whole new field of creative possibilities for years to come. We look forward to its debut in our collections.
