The culmination of 7 years of research and development, drawing upon the human talents working in various disciplines, the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Universelle pays tribute to the grand complication.
In this episode of AP talks, Sébastian Vivas, Raphaël Balestra, Lucas Raggi, Giulio Papi and Anne-Gaëlle Quinet and provide an insight into the making of AP’s most complicated watch, a lesson in complications, precision and miniaturisation and a creation that surpasses the previously accepted limits of Haute Horlogerie.
An exceptional timepiece, the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Ultra Complication Universelle RD#4 features the Manufacture Calibre 1000. It comprises 1140 components and is endowed with 40 functions, including a Grande Sonnerie, a Supersonnerie, minute repeater, tourbillon, flyback, chronograph, split-seconds chronograph, astronomical moon, moon phases and large date.
The model encompasses much complexity and know-how, but is presented in an ergonomic case measuring just 42mm in diameter with a height of only 15mm.
