Playing with depth and light, this complex glass brings forward the detailed work adorning the dials, including the applied polished Audemars Piguet gold signature realized 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. Each watch comes with a hand-stitched “large-square scale” alligator strap matching the dial’s colour.

Models with Two-tone Cases

Audemars Piguet has also enriched its Self-winding date, hour, minute and second models as well as its Self-winding Chronograph models with a two-tone case aesthetics juxtaposing 18-carat white and pink gold.

The Manufacture presents two Self-winding date, hour, minute and second models, plus two Self-winding Chronograph models with distinctive two-tone gold cases and dials in shades of grey. The 18-carat white gold bezel, lugs and caseback are subtly enhanced by an 18-carat pink gold middle case.

These new models’ interweaving of 18-carat white and pink gold foregrounds the case’s multifaceted architecture and high-end hand-finishing techniques. The sapphire caseback also reveals the 22-carat pink gold oscillating weight matching the middle case’s colour.

Two-tone gold cases are extremely rare in the history of Audemars Piguet’s wristwatches. Out of the 550 wristwatches produced and sold between 1882 and 1969, only 8 examples combined two types of gold. The blend of white and pink gold was particularly rare, with only one wristwatch recorded in the Manufacture’s archives before 1978. Although, this combination has become more prevalent today, it remains a distinct symbol of refinement and elegance.

While the understated nuances of the light grey sunburst lacquered dial bring forward refined light, the smoked grey sunburst lacquered dial gives depth to the watch. The latter’s black inner bezel accentuates the dial’s nuances.

The two models come with a matching grey or black hand-stitched “large square-scale” alligator strap. The pink gold hour-markers, hands and counter threads subtly echo this Self-winding Chronograph model’s pink gold middle case. This light grey Self-winding model is illuminated by an elegant touch of pink gold.

Movements

The new Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet models are equipped with the Manufacture’s latest generation of self-winding and self-winding chronograph movements released last year.

The Self-winding models house calibre 4302, an automatic movement with second and instant-jump date indication. The dedicated 22-carat oscillating weight of this Self-winding model is visible through the sapphire caseback.

Both movements are equipped with a patented setting mechanism that brings stability and precision when adjusting the watch’s functions. With a large diameter of 32 mm, these movements also present reinforced chronometry.

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.

In addition, calibre 4401 is endowed with a patented zero resetting mechanism which ensures that each one of the counter hands is seamlessly reset to zero. It is also equipped with a vertical clutch system that prevents hands from jumping when the chronograph is started or stopped.

Calibre 4401 additionally presents a pioneering design. This movement has been conceived to highlight functions and components usually hidden from view, such as the column wheel and the so-called “dance” of the chronograph hammers when the chronograph is reset to zero.

The watch’s dedicated open-worked oscillating weight in 22-carat gold further provides unobstructed view on the movement. All these elements can be appreciated through the watch’s caseback.
