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.

The New Code 11.59 Flying Tourbillon Chronograph

Audemars Piguet offers its new high complication watch three-dimensional face design, smearing the line between movement and dial.

  • The 18ct white gold case houses a 3-D skeletonised dial and the Calibre 9252 movement.
  • However, all the design elements and the movement have over 100 hand-polished angles.

Interestingly, every design element is diligently finished by hand, followed by sand-blasting and satin-brushing.

The Transparent Case-Back

The new Flying Tourbillon Code 11.59 self-winding Chronograph comes with sapphire case-back.

  • It displays the sand-blasted and satin-brushed open-worked bridges of the Calibre 2952 movement.
  • However, the Calibre 2952 is the brand new self-winding movement of Audemars Piguet, equipped with a flyback chronograph and a flying tourbillon.
  • The brand also furnished it with rhodium-toned open-worked 22ct pink gold oscillating weight, matching the colour of the case as well as the bridge.
  • Moreover, the watch features transparent chronograph discs at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock, representing the intricate mechanism.
  • On the other hand, the flying tourbillon orbits at 6 o’clock position.

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.

  • It complements the silhouette of the ultra-thin bezel of the watch exquisitely.
  • However, the Calibre 2952 is made of 40 jewels and 479 parts.

The movement offers a power reserve up to 65hours and 21,600vph frequency rate.

A Few Examples of the AP Watches that Combine Tourbillon & Chronograph Complications

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 –

  • The Jules Audemars Tourbillon Chronograph – powered by the open-worked Calibre 2936 Manual movement.
  • The Royal Oak Concept Tourbillon Chronograph Openworked Selfwinding – powered by the open-worked Calibre 2949 self-winding movement.
  • The Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph – powered by the Calibre 2947 self-winding open-worked movement.
  • The Royal Oak Tourbillon Chronograph – powered by the Calibre 2936 manual movement.
  • And the latest Self-winding Code 11.59 Flying Tourbillon Chronograph – powered by the Calibre 2952 self-winding movement.

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.
