If you’re looking for a coloured timepiece to match your outfit, the new Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet collection has five variants to offer.
Audemars Piguet brings a refreshing touch of colour to its latest Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet collection with five new novelties featuring sunburst lacquered dials in vivacious burgundy, blue, purple, light grey, and smoked grey. Where inspiring creativity and technical mastery meet, the new Selfwinding Chronographs and Selfwinding date, hour, minute and second models come with 70 hours of power reserve and water resistance to 30m — perfectly suited for adventurers and those who are constantly on the go.
The new Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet gracefully combines the ancestral savoir-faire Audemars Piguet continues to uphold and push further, generation after generation. The seamless alternation of satin-brushing and polished chamfers beautifies the gold case of the new self-winding chronographs. The matrimony between hand-finished matte and mirror surfaces has become a signature hallmark that accentuates the case’s complex geometry while strengthening its features with character.
The 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. Visible through the watch’s sapphire caseback, the chronograph mechanism will also appeal to admirers of beautiful micro-mechanics with its pioneering design revealing functions and components usually hidden from view.
On the face, the lacquered dials are stunningly patented with invigorating colours. Rich, smokey colours and a state-of-the-art sunburst pattern convey light and movement seamlessly. The lacquer’s smooth finishing further radiates refined nuances depending on the angle from which the watch is seen — adding a sense of mystery to the enigmatic collection.
The red shades of burgundy are elegantly contrasted with an 18-carat white gold case and white gold hour markers and hands. Conversely, the majestic tones of purple and blue are accentuated with 18-carat pink gold. Completing the chronograph is a dedicated alligator strap matching the colour of the dial for added character.
If you’re a purist looking for something timeless and versatile, pay attention to the watch’s multifaceted architecture with the two-tone models in grey sunburst lacquered dials — iterated in light or dark shades. The 18-carat pink gold octagonal middle case subtly enriches the white gold case and lugs, alongside hour markers and hands in 18-carat pink gold for a touch of glimmer.
Conceived for both men and women, the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet is also designed meticulously with the wearer in mind. The timepieces come with an ergonomic curvature that wraps around the wrists comfortably despite the watch’s 41mm in diameter. The arched profile of the case embodies the watch’s contemporary design, which is further amplified by the complex double curved sapphire crystal magnifying the intricate details that bejewel the dial.
Intrigued? Strap on the new Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet and let the beautiful play of light shine through on your wrist.
