Audemars Piguet presents six new references of its Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Selfwinding and Selfwinding Chronograph in 41 mm that have been created for the very first time in stainless steel.
Four models come entirely in steel, while the other two combine a black ceramic case middle with a steel bezel, lugs, and case back. In addition to this new material, these timepieces feature a new aesthetic that emphasizes both ergonomics and legibility as well as introduces new dials with a pattern that has been specifically created for the collection. This new evolution in the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet collection continues to stand at the crossroads between technical modernity and ancestral craftsmanship.
Combining watchmaking technology and traditional know-how, the six models are driven by the latest-generation movements: Calibre 4302 with a second and date indication and Calibre 4401, an integrated self-winding chronograph movement with a column wheel and flyback function. Both movements are equipped with a patented mechanism that provides stability and precision when setting the watch. With a generous diameter of 32 mm, these movements also provide enhanced chronometry.
The Calibre 4401 is equipped with a vertical gear train that prevents the hands from jumping when the chronograph is activated or stopped. A patented reset mechanism ensures that each counterhand returns to its original position. The sapphire case-back reveals a myriad of refined decorations on both calibres, as well as the brand new 22-carat pink gold open-worked oscillating weight dedicated to the collection.
These six new Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Selfwinding and Selfwinding Chronograph models, combining sobriety, refinement and technical modernity, will be available in Audemars Piguet boutiques and at selected retailers worldwide from April 2023.
