Audemars Piguet Haute Joaillerie Sapphire Orbe is a classy, unique, precious and glamorous masterpiece created by the talented watchmakers of Audemars Piguet! This amazingly talented and dedicated team has created one of the most extraordinary watches we’ve seen recently, the Haute Joaillerie Sapphire Orbe. The creativity of this incomparable Audemars Piguet Haute Joaillerie Sapphire Orbe timepiece has taken luxury watchmaking and gem setting to new heights.
This watch is named after the river that crosses Le Brassus, the small Swiss village which is the home of Audemars Piguet, the highly regarded watch manufacturer. Thus, this timepiece is more like an artwork depicting a glittering river of diamonds and sapphires, created by a combination of contrasting graded colors of blue and orange. On the other hand, these two colors also represent the reunion of the day and night. Its multidimensional design offers a wonderful combination between the colors and lights, depending on the angle from which you look at the watch. This one of a kind masterpiece has deployed a considerable amount of human effort and time. For the task of gem-setting alone it required more than 1,050 hours of fine craftsmanship.
Now let’s take a deep look at the finer details of this masterpiece. At the center of the Sapphire Orbe is the 2 cm dark blue, sapphire-set globe, that opens up to reveal an eye-catching 18-carat white gold watch dial which is also paved with graded orange sapphires. The domed center contains a tiny quartz caliber which makes this watch tick.
The elusive, petal-shaped rings that orbit around this hidden dial are snow-set with tiny diamonds and graded sapphires in unimaginable 6 shades of blue and orange and 20 different diameters, ranging from 0.5 mm to 1.5 mm in size. In total, this haute joaillerie creation has been studded with more than 12,000 precious stones, each of them carefully selected, individually cut and set by hand with a lot of patience and care.
This sophisticated and unmatchable Audemars Piguet’s Haute Joaillerie Sapphire Orbe is priced at a cool $904,000. What more can you expect in a complete masterpiece like this as it comes in 18K white gold and can be worn as an eye-catching bracelet, with the dial cover on, and as an exquisite watch when it’s overturned. It’s going to be a gift of a lifetime to your loved one that can be treasured and transmitted from one generation to another generation. That’s not all, surely if you can afford to buy this kind of creation you will be the center of attention.
