Audemars Piguet Replica has been gradually introducing the increasingly compelling version of Code 11.59, starting with the smoked dial model and then the tourbillon chronograph.
The button at 11 o’clock activates the minute repeater, while the crown at 2 o’clock sets the strike mode-silent, ensemble or small sonata.
The new Code 11.59 Grande Sonnerie Replica is a well-designed watch with a surprisingly simple style. Like the recent Royal Oak Concept Frosted Gold Flying Tourbillon, Haute Horlogerie is very eye-catching and modern, but the paillonné technology used to make the dial is very classic and handmade. The golden carillons are arranged randomly, giving the enamel dial a beautiful, almost organic appearance.
It is a carillon, with three sets of hammers and gongs instead of the usual two. Therefore, it will emit high pitches every hour, three high pitches in each quarter, and low pitches in the remaining minutes after the previous quarter.
