Audemars Piguet unveils a new Royal Oak Concept Flying Tourbillon limited edition created in collaboration with Haute Couture designer Tamara Ralph. Inspired by her aesthetic merging bold femininity, boundless creativity and timeless elegance, this limited edition in 18-carat pink gold shimmers with Frosted Gold and takes on a unique palette of graded hues ranging from brown and bronze to golden tones.

This collaboration, which will be revealed on 22 January 2024 during Tamara Ralph’s runway show in Paris for the Spring/Summer 2024 Haute Couture Fashion Week, celebrates the natural synergies between Haute Horlogerie and Haute Couture, while furthering the strong ties that Audemars Piguet has woven with creative worlds over the years.

The timepiece, which was presented on 22 January 2024 during Ralph’s runway show in Paris, highlights the two brands’ forward-thinking approach to craftsmanship, their seamless blend of ancestral expertise with modern techniques, as well as their distinctive creations that are at once objets d’art and vectors of emotion.

Tamara’s endless quest for perfection perfectly echoes our watchmakers’ dedication to pushing their craft to the limit. We are delighted to start 2024 in collaboration with such an inspiring woman and it is only the beginning!

Designed in collaboration with Tamara Ralph, the Royal Oak Concept Flying Tourbillon limited edition features an 18-carat pink gold case glittering with Frosted Gold. Tiny indentations are created on the gold surface with a diamond-tipped tool, giving a sparkle effect similar to that of precious stones.

Inspired by the textured details of Tamara Ralph's Couture creations, the multi-layered dial in shades of brown, bronze and gold is finished with a continuous sunburst satin finish. The diamond-set flying tourbillon at 6 o'clock combines technical mastery with a sophisticated aesthetic, enhancing the timepiece's powerful contrasts and play of light.

For its part, the caseback’s glareproofed sapphire crystal is held in place by an 18-carat pink gold octagonal frame, finished with satin brushing and polished chamfers and engraved with “Royal Oak Concept Limited Edition.”

My intention for the design of this piece is for it to capture the spirit and craftsmanship of both my brand as well as Audemars Piguet. The complications of watchmaking orchestrate a foundation which can be played with in terms of textures, colours and designs, allowing for the savoir-faire of couture to shine through. Rich materials, unique colour palettes and ultimate precision are combined, creating an exquisite limited edition of the Royal Oak Concept Flying Tourbillon, inspired by Haute Couture.
