Debuting as part of AP’s 2023 lineup of new creations, the Universelle takes the Code 11.59 to a whole new level of Haute Horology!
Kicking off 2023 in an impressive manner, Audemars Piguet recently debuted a vast collection of luxury timepieces that give collectors and enthusiasts a look at the brand’s innovative future as an industry leader. Among all the exclusive and desirable Royal Oak models unveiled, the haute horologists at Audemars Piguet were most proud to evolve its line of Code 11.59 models with an all-new design and technological improvements. Audemars Piguet is excited to present the new Code 11.59 Universelle as the ultimate ultra-complication within its collection of exceptional timepieces.
The Code 11.59 Universelle continues its legacy of featuring a traditional circular-shaped case design, crafting the 42mm construction from 18k white gold. The partially-exposed black dial includes black counters applied with matching white gold markers and hands, using its breathtaking Tourbillon as the star of the show. A glare-proof sapphire backcase offers a clear view of the intricate complication, with the ability to change its look with an additional white gold-covered backcase. Standing out as a formal dress watch designed to turn heads, Audemars Piguet fits the Code 11.59 Universelle with a Black alligator strap and an 18k white gold AP folding clasp.
What drives the all-new Code 11.59 Universelle?
The Code 11.59 Universelle is powered by Audemars Piguet’s new in-house Calibre 1000, paying tribute to its legacy of high complications in this new creation that incorporates 40 different functions, including 23 complications.
What innovative functions has Audemars Piguet introduced with this model?
To celebrate its push towards the future of time-telling, Audemars Piguet’s newest movement offers a new depiction of lunar cycles. Using two concentric disks, six different moon positions are printed to represent transitory stages between the new and full moon. The movement is now also attached with gongs on its sapphire crystal, which utilizes its “secret” backase to boost sound amplification while the watch is worn.
