The new Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet, the tourbillon openworked is case in a generous 41 mm case with a thickness of 10.7 mm. The 18k rose gold case with its octagonal case middle and capricious angles shows the amount of work that went into designing this watch. Thanks to its satin brushed finish and contrasting highly polished chamfered edges, the octagonal middle case is simply gorgeous. The crown and clasp design and those details is where you get to feel the ap dna simply intact.

The tourbillon openworked is fitted with a lacquered black flange that along with the openworked movement with grey galvanic treated bridges and with the black tourbillon and mainspring bridges creates a perfect symphony of contrast against the warm tones of the 18k rose gold case. It’s 196-part movement highlights the tourbillon located at 6 o’clock on the dial side. Located underneath a black bridge it catches the light and reflects it in all glory. The slender 18k rose gold lance hands are refined and the embodiment of pure minimalist design.
