DIAMOND PUNK
 
This unique Haute Joaillerie cuff timepiece disrupts traditional ideas of gem- set watches and displays a true desire to break the rules, technically and creatively.
 
Audemars piguet presents diamond punk, a stunning haute joaillerie watch that brilliantly reflects the traditions and savoir-faire of the le brassus manufacture. 7,848 snow-set diamonds define the sharp, clean-cut geometrics of a cuff bracelet, which is expertly engineered as a piece unique of 56 dazzling pyramid facets. Beneath a secret sliding cover, the cool beauty of the dial is revealed : set with a further 300 diamonds.
 
This unique Haute Joaillerie cuff timepiece disrupts 21 traditional ideas of gem-set watches and displays a true desire to break the rules, technically and creatively. Taking inspiration from the graphic design codes of the punk era, a rhythmical pattern of pyramid studs constructs a new Haute Joaillerie design language that resonates with creative energy.
 
The Diamond Punk’s aesthetic is expertly considered and refined, in keeping with Audemars Piguet’s rich heritage of crafting exceptional jewelled timepieces.
 
Diamond Punk is the result of 1,440 hours of work by highly skilled designers and makers and is only made possible using traditional methods passed on through centuries of high watchmaking practice.

Diamond Punk is the result of 1,440 hours of work by these highly skilled designers and makers and is only made possible using traditional methods 23 passed on through centuries of Haute Horlogerie practice.
