Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Automatic Flying Tourbillon Chronograph: Now Available in Rose Gold and Black Ceramic
Audemars Piguet presents a new variant of the Code 11.59 Automatic Flying Tourbillon Chronograph. For the first time, this watch combines a complex mechanism with an open dial and a rose gold and black ceramic case.
Case combines ceramic and rose goldThis watch has the collection's signature case, but here in rose gold and black ceramic. Precious metals make up the thin bezel, case back and hollow lugs. In addition, the buttons and crown with the AP logo shine in the warm tones of the material. On the other hand, the center part of the octagon is black ceramic, which is lightweight but very rigid. With a diameter of 41mm and a height of 13.8mm, the watch is just the right size. The front is protected by a double-domed sapphire crystal, creating a unique visual effect. On the back, the transparent case back lets you see inside the watch.
Open Dial of the Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Self-Winding Flying Tourbillon ChronographThe open dial brings the mechanics of the building into focus. Only two main hands and a ring with a minute track remain to indicate the time. There are also two totalizers showing the chronograph's measured minutes and hours. The rose gold bridges are striking, matching the colour of the case and matching the balance wheel inside the tourbillon at 6 o’clock.
Inside the Code 11.59 Self-Winding Flying Tourbillon Chronograph is a skeletonized Calibre 2952. Composed of 479 parts, this manufactured movement made its debut in 2020. It combines a flying tourbillon and a flyback chronograph. The frequency is 3 Hz. It also has a power reserve of 65 hours. It is wound with the aid of a skeletonized oscillating weight made of 22-karat rose gold. The black-painted movement features a total of 111 V-horns, hand-finished by the watchmaker.
The watch appears on a rubber-covered textured black strap. It comes with a rose gold folding clasp.
