Celebrating a year since the launch of its Code 11.59 timepiece, Audemars Piguet has released 10 new takes for the occasion. Including five new Selfwinding date, hour, minute, and second references and five new Selfwinding chronographs fueled by the latest technology, the watches apply the brand’s classic aesthetic and aptitude for tradition to an accessory built for contemporary life.
Each piece offers a timeless look, boasting a round case in materials like white or pink gold, colorful lacquered dials in deep gem tones, and a large-scale alligator leather strap. Created with both men and women in mind, the collection features specially curved ergonomics, allowing anyone to wear the 41mm watch comfortably.
Outfitted with caliber 4401, the Selfwinding integrated chronograph has been implemented with a column wheel and flyback function that allows a restart without having to stop and reset. The front of the watch displays a flyback chronograph with hours, minutes, small seconds, and the date. The model has also been made to highlight elements like the dancing movement of the chronograph hammers, which can be seen through the skeletal back of the 6.8mm case.
Measuring at a slightly thinner 4.8mm, the Selfwinding model has been equipped with caliber 4302, an automatic movement with second and instant-jump date indication. This timepiece features a simple face with Arabic numerals depicting hours, minutes, center seconds, and the date.
Both models come in five colorways and a new, smoky sunburst dial design, including three monochromatic variations—burgundy and white gold, blue and pink gold, or purple and pink gold—and two options for a two-toned case—white and pink gold with silver or black accents.
