Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet, New Diamond-set Watches

The Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet collection welcomes two new 41 mm models in 18-carat white and pink gold entirely paved with 1085 brilliant-cut diamonds (~4.99 carats) – a first in the collection. The continuous gem setting highlights the contemporary and detailed architecture of the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet, while endowing it with a delicate feminine touch.

The new Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Self-winding in white or pink gold shimmers with 1085 brilliant-cut diamonds (~4.99 carats).

The 18-carat white or pink gold dial is entirely set with 612 brilliant-cut diamonds (~2.3 carats) radiating from the dial centre like the beams of the sun. They have been carefully chosen to obtain a harmonious effect once combined.

Each dial features 6 different stone diameters ranging from ~0.65 to ~1.10 mm, evolving from the smallest to the largest as the grain setting moves towards the dial periphery. The unique optical experience conferred by the double curved sapphire crystal magnifies the diamonds’ ever-changing play of light.

The tone-on-tone white gold model is enhanced by a rhodium-toned inner bezel, while the pink gold model features a graceful pink-gold-toned inner bezel. The respective white or pink gold hour-markers, the application of which represented a complex operation due to the finesse of the fully gem-set dial, add a sophisticated touch.

All the case components have been elegantly paved with 473 brilliant-cut diamonds (~2.69 carats), from the extra-thin bezel and stylised lugs, to the octagonal middle case and caseback side, all the way to the crown. The stones have been cut in numerous sizes to adapt to the case’s diverse geometries.

While the brilliant-cut diamonds emphasise the subtle monochromatic design of the 18-carat white gold model, they offer an elegant contrast with the 18-carat pink gold case. Last but not least, the polished chamfers adorning the two models’ octagonal case middle, bezel and caseback accentuate the multiple facets of the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet’s complex architecture.

The two Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Self-winding models are powered by the Calibre 4309. Contrary to other self-winding models in the collection, these two timepieces do not have a date indication so as to give pride of place to the fully gem-set dial.

This movement is equipped with a patented setting mechanism that brings stability and precision when adjusting the watch’s functions. Its large diameter endows it with excellent chronometry. It offers 70-hour power reserve.

The sapphire caseback reveals the movement’s Haute Horlogerie decorations including “Côte de Genève,” satin-brushing, circular graining, circular satin and polished chamfers, as well as the collection’s dedicated 22-carat pink gold oscillating weight.

The two 41 mm timepieces are complemented with a new elegant and highly resistant satin-finished calfskin strap in blue-grey shade for the white gold model and in beige hue for the pink gold version. The white or pink gold folding clasp is fully covered with brilliant-cut diamonds for a feminine and refined look down to the slightest detail.
