Time For A Change With Audemars Piguet
From the environment and climate change to immigration and national identity, from race and gender to healthcare and the economy, 2019 certainly saw its fair share of hot topics. While the rest of the world bickered over Trump, trade, tariffs, extradition, education and left versus right, in the horological sphere, one topic dominated argument: the theatrical new launch of Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet.
The brand’s CEO François-Henry Bennahmias described the release of the Code 11.59 range, which had been in development for more than five years, as “the biggest launch since 1972,” featuring a comprehensive collection with 13 references, covering 5 complications and 6 calibres of the latest generation, which represents one of the most important launch of Audemars Piguet of all time.
“Classic by nature and unconventional by design”, the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet carries the House's long history of unconventional form and design languages, with a contemporary twist that adds edginess to the classic round watch. Designed for both men and women, the 41mm diameter case adapts to various wrist sizes.
The name 11.59, referring to the final minute before the start of a whole new day, signifies that the House is constantly ahead of the game, and on the brink of tomorrow. As we prepare to move into 2020, gifting a Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet could serve as a potent symbolic gesture indicating new beginnings ahead. We’d recommend considering the Selfwinding Chronograph iteration, which is available in 41mm case in pink gold with lacquered blue or black dial, and white gold with lacquered black or blue dial. At its heart is the new self-winding calibre 4401, an in-house, flyback chronograph movement boasting an impressive 70 hours power reserve. If it’s time to begin anew, this could be the timepiece for you.
