BRILLIANTLY SHOCKING, BOLDLY UNIQUE

For 2017, boasting the power of her predecessors and hundreds of brilliant-cut diamonds, Audemars Piguet presents Diamond Outrage – the third and final design in the trilogy of one-of-a-kind Haute Joaillerie timepieces.

After 2015’s Diamond Punk and 2016’s Diamond Fury, Diamond Outrage is a cuff watch of rare, explosive style that marks a shift in artistic Haute Joaillerie watch design.

Glinting with the icy fascination of the Vallée de Joux in winter, Diamond Outrage’s structure is set with precious stones in a brilliant array of cuts. On the full diamond version, the inclusion of three baguette-set spikes shines a vibrant light on the outrageous character of this futuristic design.

A magnetic fusion of spectacular spikes and hypnotic beauty… Diamond Outrage becomes an explosion of stalactites on the wrist. A cuff watch of sculptural, sensual force, Diamond Outrage reflects the earth’s power to design an outrageous architecture of its own.

Diamond Outrage’s distinctive glittering spikes in varying sizes (ranging from 29.30mm to 40mm) are created using the snow setting technique, where diamonds are set so carefully close together that the jewel’s white-gold frame is rendered almost invisible, creating a spellbinding, luminous effect.

Invisible setting, another rare technique, is used for each of the three distinctive baguette-cut diamond points featured on the full diamond version. Here, linear-cut diamonds appear to float, held perfectly in place as if no setting were required. It takes many years of training for an expert jeweler to acquire the necessary skills and master invisible setting.
