Iconic, luxurious and pioneering – these three words make it easy to sum up the entire legacy of Audemars Piguet. The brand was founded in Switzerland in 1875 by childhood friends Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet, and is now known for its unique style and complex movements. With the introduction of Royal Oak in the 1970s, its position in the field of fine watchmaking was undoubtedly consolidated. Luxury replica watch brands have been striving to pursue the leading position of high-end watches-this is why its latest release will have such a big impact!
Audemars Piguet’s new watch series CODE 11.59 was unveiled at Salon Internationale de la Haute Horlogie 2019, the world’s top luxury watch fair. This is an ode to watchmaking art and science, setting the tone from the name. CODE is the abbreviation of Challenge, Own, Dare & Evolve (challenge, self, dare and development), and it is the name that lives up to itself. 11.59 represents the last minute before the start of the new day, symbolizing excitement and always one step ahead.
The CODE 11.59 created a huge sensation and its launch took off. With 13 references, 6 models and 3 new movements, this new watch series is definitely a game changer for Audemars Piguet.
In terms of design, CODE 11.59 made an impact with its seemingly simple design. The design has reached modernity in both methods and thinking, while satisfying the aesthetic preferences of men and women. Depending on the form, the round dial is actually an octagonal dial (return to its royal oak design!), Hidden under the dial. The slim watch has a diameter of 41 mm, which is great for both men and women.
In addition, what really caught our attention was the use of innovative materials. The rose gold perpetual calendar is perhaps the most striking of its fantastic constellation dial. Made of Aventurine glass, a small amount of cobalt and black copper oxide, the cooling process creates an amazing night view at night on your wrist. Talk about the dreamer!
As Audemars Piguet’s historian and member of the team that initiated CODE 11.59, Michael Freidman, said: “We know this is a watch that is absolutely modern. It must be today and tomorrow. When you browse the history of AP watches, there is such a highly unconventional history in the design of the case and dial, which is no accident. “
For Audemars Piguet, CODE 11.59 will certainly be very popular, just like its Royal Oak luxury cheap watch series. With its simple and modern design, luxurious details and complex movement, we have no doubt that this new family will inherit the legacy.
