This collection, entirely new for Audemars, proposed a different approach to the brand’s concept, something to add to the bold, signature Royal Oak and Royal Oak Offshore Replica Watches. Reactions were strong, but as we explained and showed, it is a watch that deserves to be seen in the metal to be understood.
This two-tone version really emphasizes the architectural complexity and shapes of the case of Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet. In this instance, the central case, discreetly shaped like an octagon, is made of 18k rose gold, with brushed and polished surfaces. The rest of the case parts – referring to the ultra-thin, round bezel, the sculptural lugs and the caseback – are made of 18k white gold creating an interesting contrast between the different parts of this complex case.
The hand-wound, fully skeletonized movement is delicately hollowed with modern curves revealing the inner parts of this in-house calibre. Following the two-tone theme, most of the movement is rhodium toned and features a pink gold-toned titanium tourbillon and barrel bridges with polished rhodium-toned angles. The Replica Watches decoration is superb, with no fewer than 70 hand-polished angles. An opaline silver-toned white gold inner bezel frames the movement.
