Audemars Piguet is one of the oldest Swiss luxury watch makers that has still kept to its roots since the beginning of time. Over the years since its inception, Audemars Piguet has been known for many watches. However, one collection in particular stands out and that is its Royal Oak series of timepieces. Its hexagonal shape was and is still considered to be an iconic design and with that said, the Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 breathes new life into its watches by bringing both old and new together.
It initially made its debut appearance to a select group of fans and enthusiasts of the brand before being showcased to the entire world at SIHH 2019. Since then, the Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 has been on the minds of many watch collectors and enthusiasts, all of which are either in shock or awe of the brand’s new design.
This is the first time a watchmaker of such history and heritage has ever attempted, combining both a circular and hexagonal shape into the timepiece. The hexagonal middle case rests neatly within the new round case and hides in plain sight; it can only be found if one begins to take proper notice of the designs. The Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 also features a brand new optical crystal experience with its double-curved crystal glass.
Its design plays with perception, light, and depth for a truly unique optical experience. While the internal surface is shaped like a dome, the crystal glass is vertically curved from the 6 to 12 o’clock — giving you a different view each time you look at the watch to tell the time. The dial itself is finished with numerous layers of lacquer as well as a mirror-like finish for even greater depth.
All in all, the Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 comes with six calibres of the latest generation, each of which goes into a specific Code 11.59 timepiece. This ranges from your typical self-winding chronograph to a perpetual calendar, an openwork tourbillon and even a self-winding flying tourbillon for good measure.
It’s safe to say that since 1875, Audemars Piguet has always been about creating its own destiny with its unique style of mechanical watches, which has since paved the way for its latest trends.
