Audemars Piguet - Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Tourbillon Openworked

Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Tourbillon Openworked

The two-tone case of this unique piece created for Only Watch emphasizes the architectural complexity of Code 11.59.

For the 2019 edition of Only Watch, Audemars Piguet dresses its Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Tourbillon Openworked with a two-tone livery. The 18-carat pink gold octagonal middle case of this unique piece contrasts with the 18-carat white gold extra-thin bezel, lugs and caseback. Satin-brushed, bevelled and polished, the bezel, lugs and case present refined finishing techniques usually found on calibres. The caseback is engraved with “Unique Piece.”

This watch houses a 3D hand-wound tourbillon openworked movement, calibre 2948. Its rhodium-toned openworked plate, finished with vertical traits-tirés, is enhanced by pink gold-toned titanium tourbillon and barrel bridges with polished rhodium-toned angles. Echoing the two-tone colour of the case, the decoration of this movement amplifies the watch’s 3D effect. With 70 hand-polished angles, the hand finishing on this movement pushes the openworking art to new heights.

The opaline silver-toned white gold inner bezel frames the openworked movement and accentuates the extra-thinness of the watch’s bezel, barely visible around the dial. The long 18-carat pink gold hands add yet another touch of colour. This unique model comes with a black alligator strap, which further highlights the refinement and artistry of the watch’s case and movement.

François-Henry Bennahmias, Audemars Piguet Chief Executive Officer, rejoices over Audemars Piguet’s participation in this event: “We are proud to contribute to this charity auction once more and help advance scientific and medical research.”
