In December 2022, Brassus-Audemars Piguet, a Swiss luxury watchmaking brand, launched a new CODE 11.59 series star wheel watch, which is made of black ceramic and 18K white gold. "Wandering Hours" is a complex function of clocks and watches that originated in the 17th century. The "satellite" hour dial slowly slides across the fan-shaped minute scale area in sequence to display hours and minutes at the same time. This poetic and aesthetic way of displaying time injects a mysterious atmosphere into the watch.Replica Audemars Piguet Code 11.59
The newly launched star wheel watch this year continues the design of the representative model in 1990. The watch adopts the modern case of the Audemars Piguet CODE 11.59 series, and the architectural beauty of the lines and outlines complements the "roaming hours" display design. The overlapping geometry of the circular bezel, case bottom and star wheel and the octagonal case middle layer further highlights the delicate structure of the case.
On the background of the bright blue aventurine dial, the three dials rotate slowly, as if three planets are traveling between the square inches of the universe on the dial. The slightly domed disc is made of aluminium, blackened with PVD, sandblasted and opalescent, and then transferred with a white "roaming hour" indicator. Continuing this modern aesthetic style, the 120-degree fan-shaped minute scale area between 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock and the inner bezel are black with white minute scales.
This new work with a diameter of 41 mm is ingenious in the use of materials, combining aventurine, 18K white gold and black ceramics. The combination of multiple materials and Audemars Piguet's iconic exquisite manual retouching creates a rich light and shadow effect, which sets off the complex design of the Audemars Piguet CODE 11.59 series. In addition, the 18K white gold bezel, lugs and case back form a sharp contrast with the black case middle and the new crown made of black ceramic.
Like the gold components, the ceramic case middle has been meticulously hand-finished, using Audemars Piguet’s signature alternating polished chamfers and satin-brushed finishes. Audemars Piguet watchmakers also need to display extraordinary skills to align the bevels and rounded lines of the different parts of the case, a process that can only be done by hand.
On the dial, the hyperboloid sapphire crystal glass mirror highlights the subtle details of the blue aventurine and the exquisite finishing process of different parts, which also makes the dial more profound. Through the sapphire crystal glass back, you can appreciate the internal structure of the movement, as well as the 22K rose gold automatic rotor exclusive to this series. The new watch is paired with a black rubber-covered strap decorated with fine texture, and the new pin buckle is engraved with the words "AUDEMARS PIGUET" instead of the usual "AP" initials.
This time, the Audemars Piguet CODE 11.59 series introduced the brand's classic star wheel display for the first time, and this complex function is driven by the Caliber 4310 self-winding movement. This new-generation movement with hours, minutes, and seconds display is based on the Caliber 4309 movement and adds a new functional module. The new movement has been carefully hand-finished, ingeniously combining superb watchmaking skills and traditional craftsmanship, with a 70-hour power reserve and a water resistance of 30 meters.Audemars Piguet Replica Watches
