As if the famed Audemars Piguet Royal Oak wasn’t impressive enough, the legendary timepeice is getting its most bold update yet in a full spectrum of eye-catching colors — derived from real and seriously luxurious gemstones, no less.

Audemars Piguet has spent this year celebrating five decades of the Royal Oak, but the Audemars Piguet Rainbow Royal Oak is a cut above, quite literally.

The offering comprises 10 different watches in both a 37mm and 41mm case diameter, boasting white-gold materials and of course, those impressive gemstones.

To be exact, each watch features more than 800 stones, including about 860 gemstones for the impressive 41mm iteration of the Royal Oak.

The result is as visually striking a watch as you’re apt to find, perhaps the true definition of a diamond in the rough.

The gemstones in question are undeniably luxe, including emeralds, blue topaz and rubies. Sourcing the precious gemstones took an entire year, according to the watchmaker.

The famed company didn’t rest on its laurels with the specs on this exceptional iteration of the Royal Oak, either: The 41mm edition features AP’s caliber 4309 movement, and the 37mm edition features the caliber 5909 movement, complete with a transparent sapphire crystal caseback.

Covetable as each watch happens to be, it’ll be even more difficult (read: virtually impossible) to get your hands on one: The Audemars Piguet Rainbow Royal Oak is only available in one watch of each size, in each color. Hey, a watch enthusiast can dream, right?
