Audemars Piguet’s Diamond Punk timepiece disrupts 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.
The Swiss watchmaking brand’s Haute Joaillerie piece won the “Montre Joaillerie” category at this year’s Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG). The awards ceremony took place in Geneva, at the Grand Théâtre de Genève. The international watchmaking industry gathered for an exciting evening to discover the winners of the 12 existing categories featured at the GPHG. The jury of 26 professionals from the watchmaking world and media was headed by the Haute Horlogerie specialist and auctioneer Aurel Bacs. 193 watches were submitted and the judges had pre-selected 72 finalists, which were running for a total of 18 awards.
