Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Selfwinding Chronograph
Audemars Piguet 2019
Audemars Piguet constantly reinvents itself, now with a completely new collection that was seven years in the making. First of all, Code 11.59 takes a new direction in design, distinguished by a thin, round bezel above a subtly octagonal caseband, openworked lugs, and a lacquered dial beneath a sapphire crystal whose double curve creates a unique optical experience. Code 11.59 is also a fine example of the brand's watchmaking skill, embodied here by its first in-house integrated column-wheel Chronograph movement. In addition to the standard chronograph indications and a date display, there is also a flyback function that enables the user to record successive intervals without having to stop and reset the chronograph hand each time. Displayed in pink gold against the black lacquered dial, precision, reliability and functionality combine.
