Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet is back — with three new complications whose beauty, artistry and daring is enough to take on the world.
For Audemars Piguet C.E.O. François-Henry Bennahmias (pictured), the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet collection embodies a bridge between past and future.

Audemars Piguet, already the creator of many sought-after timepieces, decided to push the envelope in 2019. The manufacture debuted the bold Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet collection, a range of sophisticated watches that bear unique aesthetics. ‘Code’ was inspired by modern lingo, and, in millennial speak, the trend of shortening words. ‘11.59’ was meant to remind us that Audemars Piguet are always ahead of the game, constantly on the brink of tomorrow. The technicality and precision behind Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet showcase the brand’s multiple talents in the field of complicated watchmaking. Audemars Piguet were pioneers in the invention of complications in the 19th century, with the release of the first chiming wristwatch. The manufacture then played a pivotal role in the revival of complications in the 1970s and 1980s, when they presented future icons like the ultra-thin perpetual calendar of 1978 and the first tourbillon wristwatch of 1986.
