Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 26393OR. OO.A002CR.01 41mm 18k pink gold case, blue alligator leather strap


Code 11.59 is a completely new family of watches from the storied Swiss brand, best known for its Royal Oak, an icon of modern watchmakin­g with its distinctiv­e angular case, exposed screws and integrated bracelet. AP is calling Code 11.59 “the biggest launch since 1972”, the year the Royal Oak arrived: the plan was to make a splash with something contempora­ry and all-new that nods to its innovative past. Five years in the making and available in 13 references across six models with three new calibres, all Code 11.59 watches were launched simultaneo­usly, a feat in itself. The self-winding chronograp­h version features a black lacquered dial, an 18k pink gold case and a double-curved sapphire crystal, something that plays with depth perception, a new design element for Code 11.59 that may yet become as iconic as the Royal Oak’s octagonal bezel.
