For the very first time, six new references of the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Selfwinding and Selfwinding Chronograph have been created in stainless steel.
Four models come entirely in steel, while the other two combine a black ceramic case middle with a steel bezel, lugs and case back.
These new Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Selfwinding and Selfwinding Chronograph models introduce a new dial design evolution into the collection and put an emphasis on comfort and readability.
New hour-markers and hands create a visual contrast with the dial, while the inner bezel has also evolved along with the seconds scale, typography of the numerals, crown and buckle. The design evolution will be extended to gold models and complications in the coming years.
Developed by Audemars Piguet in collaboration with Swiss guilloché artisan Yann von Kaenel, the dials are coloured with PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) for the blue and green tones and a galvanic process for the beige hue.
The pattern of waves that moves outwards from the centre of the dial is decorated with hundreds of tiny holes that play with the light.
