Primal, powerful and provocative, a Haute Joaillerie masterpiece bristling with attitude and a rebellious spirit
— February 16th, 2016 —
In 2016, an interesting suite of horological developments highlights the disruptive ideas, independent attitude and savoir-faire that set Audemars Piguet apart as a dynamic force in watchmaking today. The Manufacture’s different thinking is illuminated in a series of designs that break the rules of horological tradition.
Spirit of rebellion
Primal, powerful and provocative, Audemars Piguet unveils Diamond Fury, a Haute Joaillerie masterpiece bristling with attitude and a rebellious spirit. Last year, we revealed Diamond Punk, a paved, studded cuff watch with a punk-rock goddess streak. In 2016, Diamond Fury, the mighty warrior sister engineered in diamonds and white gold (with or without additional onyx elements), stalks the Haute Joaillerie landscape like a shimmering force of nature.
Force of nature
Diamond Fury is like a carapace of gems with a shield of brilliant-cut diamonds: a true Haute Joaillerie talisman. Audemars Piguet’s expert designers and jewellers have perfected the underside of Diamond Fury’s jewelled scales with the same care as its enigmatic outer shell. Yet, its naturally tough form is precision-armoured to protect a sensual side and deftly engineered to slink around the wrist.
Diamond Fury’s mysterious character is revealed via a secret panel which, when touched, subtly unclips to reveal the dial beneath. Crafted with unique skill, this masterpiece is a dynamic coming together of the designers, engineers and jewellers of Le Brassus. It took passion, perfection, over 1,500 hours and 4,635 brilliant-cut diamonds for the full diamond version featured here to emerge as a fusion of the singular character, unconventional thinking and cutting-edge technology that define Audemars Piguet today.
