Amidst the pandemic, Audemars Piguet not only opened its new headquarters in Switzerland but also launched its new Code 11.59 timepieces. The brand took the time to create something unique for its mainstay collections and finally, came with the new Flying Tourbillon Code 11.59 self-winding Chronograph.
It is the first time Audemars Piguet has made efforts to combine two incredibly complex mechanisms – flyback Chronograph and flying Tourbillon. The new Code 11.59 Flying Tourbillon Chronograph sports an 18ct white gold case of 41mm.
The brand produced this complicated timepiece in limited numbers of just 50pieces. However, the new self-winding Code 11.59 Flying Tourbillon Chronograph represents the innovative approach of the brand to traditional artistry.
Audemars Piguet offers its new high complication watch three-dimensional face design, smearing the line between movement and dial.
Interestingly, every design element is diligently finished by hand, followed by sand-blasting and satin-brushing.
The new Flying Tourbillon Code 11.59 self-winding Chronograph comes with sapphire case-back.
Now, what adds a brilliant touch of colour are the chronograph rings, white gold hands and the blued inner bezel.
Audemars Piguet has furnished this new high complicated Chronograph with a double-curved sapphire crystal.
The movement offers a power reserve up to 65hours and 21,600vph frequency rate.
If you look at the brand’s catalogue, you will notice that Audemars Piguet has five varieties of watches that integrate the chronograph and tourbillon complications. They are –
Interestingly, out of these five, two of the watches house a Calibre-manual type movement. The remaining timepieces are of the self-winding type, featuring movements that the brand exclusively developed for a particular watch family.
Moreover, the new Flying Tourbillon Code 11.59 self-winding Chronograph is water-resistant up to 30m. And it comes with a blue leather strap, matching the blued inner bezel.
