Presented in two unique 18-carat white gold versions, the Diamond Outrage is fully set with either diamonds or blue sapphires.

Aptly described by Audemars Piguet, the “Diamond Outrage becomes an explosion of stalactites on the wrist.” The sparkling spikes vary in size from 29.30mm to 40mm in length, and are produced using the so-called ‘snow setting’ technique, where the diamonds are set so close together that the jewel’s white gold frame appears almost invisible.

The structure of the timepiece is set with precious diamonds of different cuts. The full diamond version includes three baguette-set spikes. The rare technique of invisible setting is used for each of three prominent spikes, so the, linear-cut diamonds appear to float, held perfectly in place as if no setting were required.

The Full Diamond model (Ref. 67700BC.ZZ.9190BC.01) features 9,923 brilliant-cut diamonds of approximately 50.06 carats, and 354 baguette-cut diamonds, of about 15.85 carats. The Sapphire model (Ref. 67701BC.SS.9191BC.01) is set with 11,043 brilliant-cut blue sapphires of 65.47 carats.  Both of these watches are issued in a limited edition of one, and their prices are available only upon request.
