Savoir faire shoot of a Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Selfwinding Chronograph watch.

The two new Selfwinding Chronograph models present a highly contemporary two-tone case design. While the bezel, lugs and caseback are made in 18-carat white or pink gold, the octagonal middle case is honed from black ceramics.

These two Selfwinding Chronograph models are powered by Calibre 4401, the Manufacture’s latest in-house integrated chronograph with column wheel and flyback function that enables to restart the chronograph without stopping or resetting it first.

The teams had to push their limits once more to respond to the new technical challenges of combining a black ceramic middle case with a bezel, lugs and caseback crafted in gold. The vertical satin-finishing on the dial also had to be perfectly aligned with the case’s refined traits tirés.
