It all starts with Audemars Piguet’s proprietary forged carbon technology.

Not carbon fiber, forged fiber was a special way of compressing carbon into defined shapes and using them as case materials. It took a while for Audemars Piguet to get it right, but the current result is something that sold me. The marbled black tones of the forged carbon aren’t for everyone, and in this case Audemars Piguet compliments it with a host of other materials so as to make it just another texture. This was wise. Next to ceramic and metal it looks really nice. Depending on the model the forged carbon makes up most of the case. To the touch the forged carbon is impressive. It is hard, but has a smooth warmth to it – almost being soft to the touch. It is totally without depressions or uneveness. Best of all, it is tough and ultra light. I mean super light. Even with gold, it makes for a very light watch.
