Audemars Piguet Camouflage Gold Alloy

 Audemars Piguet Camouflage Gold Alloy 06 June 2024

Audemars Piguet has taken innovation to the next level with its groundbreaking 'chroma gold,' a solid gold alloy featuring a captivating camouflage pattern. This new twist on gold is not just a superficial layer but a thoroughly blended mix of white, yellow, and pink gold, crafted without any coatings or separate glued parts.

The secret behind this striking material is a technique known as Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS), which melds the different colors of gold powders within a mould under extreme heat and pressure, achieving the blend in minutes rather than hours. This process results in distinctive, multicolored gold components where no two pieces are precisely alike, ensuring each creation is genuinely unique.

Chroma gold is displayed in a 34mm Royal Oak sample watch, showcasing what could be the future in luxury watch aesthetics. For now, Audemars Piguet hasn't released chroma gold commercially, but this example points to the exciting and bold path they're exploring. Whether it's destined to become a classic or remains a niche novelty, chroma gold is sure to turn heads and spark conversation.
