Watch real shot
This time, Audemars Piguet has created a unique and highly recognizable case shape, and reinterpreted the case shape by inserting an octagonal middleware design into the round case. The case diameter is 41 millimeters, with a streamlined design optimized for compound ergonomics to suit wearers of different wrist sizes.
The case is made of rose gold, which is brushed with satin, chamfered and polished to show the different textures of the metal.
The crown is located on the side of the watch and is also polished with a polishing process. It is engraved with the Audemars Piguet logo and surrounded by a non-slip texture.
The top of the hollow lugs is fixed to the ultra-thin bezel by welding, and the bottom of the lugs cleverly forms a perfect connection with the case back.
This time Audemars Piguet has developed a complex hyperboloid anti-glare sapphire crystal glass with a dome-shaped inner surface and a circular arc shape symmetrically on the outer surface from 6 to 12 o’clock on the dial. Such a sapphire crystal glass can use depth, perspective and light effects cleverly, highlighting the delicate technical details of the dial, bringing unique visual enjoyment.
The dial adopts a hollow design, showing a complex and precise movement structure and three-dimensional depth. The dark hollow rhodium-plated German silver main splint and the PVD-coated bridge splint form a strong contrast, highlighting the aesthetic design and 3D effect of the movement.
The tourbillon is located at 6 o’clock on the dial, and the two hands indicate the time, which is simple and clear when reading.
The movement is equipped with a 2948 manual-winding, self-produced movement that provides at least 80 hours of power reserve. This movement has 70 hand-polished V-shaped chamfers, demonstrating superb craftsmanship.
The watch comes with a hand-stitched ‘large square’ black alligator leather strap with a folding clasp in 18K rose gold.
The new CODE11.59 series launched by love each other breaks the brand’s traditional aesthetic design and brings us more surprises with a new posture. The new fusion of circular shape and octagonal design and the exquisite posture of the hollow tourbillon are the characteristics of this new CODE11.59 series hollow tourbillon watch.
