“The thread that connects all of our products – past
and present – is that our cases are the canvas for highly
detailed hand-finishing that creates a play of light
when one examines the case’s architectural geometry.
The new Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Selfwinding
Flying Tourbillon Chronograph amplifies this experience
by emphasizing the contrast of light and the various
finishing techniques of the openworked dial elements and
the multi-layered complex mechanism. All aspects of the
watch – case, dial and movement – are essential platforms
for our watchmakers and artisans to express their craft
and the continuing story of Audemars Piguet.”

About The Watch

This high complication watch unites an 18-carat white gold case with a three-dimensional architectural face design blurring the line between dial and movement. The contrast of rhodium-toned and black galvanic openworked bridges honed from titanium and nickel silver, brings depth and play of light to the watch. The movement as well as all design elements, which count more than 100 hand-polished angles, are meticulously finished by hand with an alternation of satin-brushing and sandblasting. 

The transparent chronograph counters at 3 and 9 o’clock reveal part of the complex mechanism, while the impactful flying tourbillon makes its rotation at 6 o’clock. The blued lacquered inner bezel, white gold hands and chronograph rings add a subtle touch of colour, which is enhanced by the watch’s dark blue hand-stitched alligator strap
