Audemars Piguet Launches Jewelry Collection Inspired by Its Watches
Highlighting the high art of watchmaking and the house’s mechanical movement.
Adding to its line of desirable Royal Oak timepieces, Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet has now introduced its latest jewelry collection. Dubbed “K.I.S.S. (Keep It Super Simple),” the release celebrates the brand’s two-year-long partnership with jeweler Carolina Bucci.
Featuring bracelets and necklaces, each design takes inspiration from the high art of watchmaking, otherwise known as Haute Horlogerie. The collaboration between AP and Bucci dates back to 2018, when the duo crafted a limited-edition Royal Oak Frosted Gold mechanical watch. “Craftsmanship would remain paramount, but there would be a natural tendency towards simplicity – a simplicity of both design and purpose,” the jewelry designer shares in a press release. The collection is comprised of two different sizes of 18-carat gold bracelets in various colorways, along with necklaces that match each piece. The collection also dives deep into AP’s watch movement, resembling the spring in the brand’s double balance wheel escapement that first debuted in 2016.
Priced from 7,196 CHF (approximately $7,887 USD) to 21,216 CHF (approximately $23,254 USD), the “K.I.S.S.” collection is now available in the AP Houses of London, Hong Kong and Barcelona, as well as boutiques in Nagoya and Dallas.
