The Revamped Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 With Two Tone Case
When Audemars Piguet released the Code 11.59 collection in 2019, it created a buzz. The Code 11.59 represented an utter departure from Audemars Piguet’s signature style. Enthusiasts embraced it as a bold, unique direction.
However, the watchmaker upgraded the exclusive Code 11.50 series for its second year, adding a dynamic bi-tone case design and new dial variants. Thus, with dramatic dials matching the delicate casework, the latest Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 watches today feels like a complete package. Let’s delve into the details more.
Regardless, nearly all AP watches hold excellent resale value with time, making them sound investment pieces.

Audemars Piguet Refined the Code 11.59 Adding New Variations
The Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 collection consists of chronograph and three-hand watches – the Code 11.59 Self-winding Chronograph 41mm and the Code 11.59 Self-winding 41mm. And AP offered new case and dial options for both models.
The watches retain the original 2019’s multi-layer silhouette, and the futuristic skeleton lugs around the sandwiched middle case band. However, the Code 11.59 series includes the latest bi-tone pink and white gold models, besides the previous pink gold and white gold Code 11.59 versions.
- The changes between the bezel, central case, lugs and case back have become more appealing.
- On the other hand, the octagonal shape of the case has become more visible.
- The higher contrast fortifies the ultra-modern spirit of the design.
However, keep note that Audemars Piguet has comparatively fewer dual-tone gold watches in its catalogue. The watchmaker produced only one pink gold and white gold watch ever and that also, before 1978.
Nonetheless, the current Code 11.59 watches come with a sapphire glare-resistant case back. However, they are water-resistant to a disappointing 30m depth.
The New Dial Options
Overall, the current Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 watches reflect the design of their previous siblings. The dial flaunts simplistic stick hands, modernistic Arabic numerals and slim baton indexes.
However, many collectors and enthusiasts have criticised the minimalistic dial layout on the previous Code 11.59 models. To combat this criticism, AP might have cropped up with the new vibrant dial colour options.
The colour choices are royal blue, a vivid purple and a deep merlot red. Interestingly, AP offered a smoky sunburst finish to all these lively dial tones.
The gleaming silver sunburst finish is ideally the most conventional and cleanest out of all. Then the charcoal grey sunburst finish adds much visual depth.
The In-house Movement
The latest Code 11.59 Self-winding watch houses the brand’s in-house automatic Calibre 4302. The movement offers exquisite decorations and a jumping date mechanism. However, it provides a power reserve of 70hours and a 28,800bph beat rate.
On the other hand, the automatic Calibre 4401 movement powers the Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Selfwinding Chronograph.
- This in-house movement has a flyback chronograph functionality and a pink gold skeleton rotor.
- Moreover, the Calibre 4401 delivers a power reserve of 70 hours at a similar 28,800bph beat rate.
Finally, what completes the bold, unique look of the watches is a hand-stitched leather strap. It comes in colours matching the dial.
