Audemars Piguet: new references for the Code 11.59

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.

A

dorned with complex lacquered dials and a palette of deep colours, these novelties offer a new contemporary twist to this timeless round watch.

Rising to a new challenge, Audemars Piguet craftspeople have affirmed their creative vision via new smoked lacquered dials with sunburst pattern in hues of blue, burgundy, purple, as well as light and dark grey. The dials’ artistry 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 dials’ elegant colours complement the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet’s contemporary architecture and refined decoration. 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 than meet the eye. The perfectly aligned alternation of satin-brushed and polished surfaces adorning the case was only achievable by hand.

Designed for both men and women, this collection also features an optimum curved ergonomics, making it comfortable for all to wear despite its 41 mm in diameter.

Audemars Piguet has also enriched its Selfwinding date, hour, minute and second models as well as its Selfwinding Chronograph models with a two-tone case aesthetics juxtaposing 18-carat white and pink gold. This exclusive combination highlights the case’s multiple geometries, hand-finished to the nine, as well as the collection’s blend of age-old craftsmanship and innovative design.

Each watch comes with a hand-stitched “large-square scale” alligator strap matching the dial’s colour.

Making no compromise, Audemars Piguet once again unites tradition and contemporary lifestyle in this colourful collection which testifies to the Manufacture’s creativity and forward-thinking spirit.
