Audemars Piguet Code 11.59, Now In Hues of Burgundy, Blue, Purple, Light and Dark Grey

by Hours and Minutes Australia

One of the most debated launches of 2019 was the Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 collection largely because of the dial design, the overall configuration and the fact that aesthetically, it wasn’t very ‘AP’. A year after its official launch, Code  11.59 by Audemars Piguet continues to evolve with five new Selfwinding date, hour, minute and second references and five new Selfwinding Chronograph models. Adorned with smoked lacquered dials in hues of blue, burgundy, purple, light and dark grey, these novelties offer a new contemporary twist to this timeless round watch.

The 41mm case, irrespective of whether its two-tone or monotone, truly brings out the deep colours of the dial.  These watches are designed for both men and women and feature optimum curved ergonomics, making it incredibly comfortable and versatile. Composed of an octagonal middle case, a round extra-thin bezel and stylised lugs, the unconventional case design pushed ancestral hand finishing techniques to new heights with more details that meet the eye.

The perfectly aligned alternation of satin-brushed and polished surfaces adorning the case was only achievable by hand. A hand-stitched “large-square scale” alligator strap matching the dial’s colour, enhances the overall magnificence.

 

The multi-part, sandwich construction dial is enhanced by the watch’s extra-thin bezel and double curved glareproofed sapphire crystal. Playing with depth and light, this complex glass brings forward the detailed work adorning the dials, including the applied polished Audemars Piguet gold signature realised in galvanic growth. The 18-carat pink gold or white gold applied hour-markers and hands and the lacquered inner bezel, accentuates the dial’s nuances.

 

 

These new Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet models are equipped with the Manufacture’s latest generation of selfwinding and selfwinding chronograph movements released last year. The Selfwinding models house calibre 4302, an automatic movement with second and instant-jump date indication while the Selfwinding Chronograph models are powered by calibre 4401, an integrated chronograph with column wheel and flyback function that enables to restart the chronograph without stopping and resetting it first. Both these calibre’s ensure a power reserve of 70 hours when fully wound.

Visible through the watch’s caseback, these two calibres uphold fine watchmaking tradition with refined hand-finishing techniques including “traits tirés,” “Côtes de Genève,” circular graining, circular satin, and diamond-polished angles.  The openworked oscillating weight in 22-carat gold further provides an unobstructed view of the movement.
