Iconic, luxurious and groundbreaking – these three words easily sum up Audemars Piguet’s entire legacy. Founded in Switzerland in 1875 by childhood friends Jules Louis Audemars and Edward fake Auguste Piguet, the brand is today known for its unique style and complex movements. With the introduction of the Royal Oak in the 1970s, its position in fine watchmaking was undoubtedly cemented. This luxury watch brand is always looking to push the limits of fine watches – that’s why its latest launch makes such a big impact!
Audemars Piguet’s new watch collection, CODE 11.59, unveiled at the 2019 Salon Internationale de la Haute Horlogie, the world’s premier haute horlogerie exhibition, is an ode to the art and science of watchmaking, setting the tone from the very beginning . CODE, short for Challenge, Own, Dare & Evolve, is an exciting term. 11.59 represents the last minute before a new day begins, symbolizing excitement and always one step ahead.
The launch of fake CODE 11.59 caused a stir. With 13 models, 6 models and 3 new movements, this new watch collection is definitely a game-changer for Audemars Piguet.
In terms of design, CODE 11.59 made an impact with its deceptively simple design. With a modern approach and thinking, the design meets the aesthetic preferences of both men and women. Depending on the shape, the circular dial is actually an octagonal dial (back to its royal oak design!), just hidden beneath its surface. With a diameter of 41mm, this slim watch looks great on both men and women.
Also, what really caught our eye was the use of innovative materials. The rose gold perpetual calendar is probably the most striking of the Phantasy constellation dials. Made from aventurine glass with a touch of cobalt and black copper oxide, the cooling process creates a stunning starry night view right on your wrist. Talk about dreamers!
As Audemars Piguet historian and CODE 11.59 launch team member Michael Freidman said: “We knew the watch had to be unapologetically modern. It had to be today and Something for tomorrow. When you look back at the history of AP watches, it’s no accident that there is an unbroken and highly unconventional history in case form and dial design.”
For Audemars Piguet, the CODE 11.59 is destined to be a hit, like its Royal Oak luxury watch collection. With its clean and modern design, luxurious details and sophisticated movement, we have no doubts about the legacy this new family will leave behind.
