The Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 replica watch collection of 2023 debuts a ripple-effect dial along with a fair number of design tweaks, all wrapped in stainless steel for the first time. Available in self-winding and chronograph guises, this marks the latest effort from Audemars Piguet to create a better-looking and better-performing core collection of Code 11.59 watches.
The base went from a glossy surface to a stamped ripple texture — more on that in a bit — which, given its intricacy, could no longer carry the tiny minute track in between the hour markers. To compensate for this and to maintain to-the-second legibility, the flange ring is now busier, complete with minute and seconds track.
The hour markers are now batons in every position, except for 3 o’clock as the date aperture has been repositioned here from the asymmetrical 4:30 location on the debut model.The 2023 Cheap Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Replica debuts with much more complex hour and minute hands, partially openworked, faceted, and lumed, all doing their part in drastically improving legibility.
Only a fraction of the surfaces are free from a texture, the flange ring, the subdials, and even the rings around the subdials show a concentric pattern. Perhaps leaving at least one of these flat and simple would have toned things down a bit. Still, every component appears to have been crafted with attention and care, as befits Best Audemars Piguet Replica.
The case measures 41mm-wide and just 10.7mm-thick is rated water resistant to 30m, and it still has the Code 11.59’s signature lugs that are integral to the bezel and only appear to be connected to the caseback but are, in fact, not. The middle case is in black ceramic and is octagonal as a nod to the Royal Oak, along with the little hexagonal screws set into the side of the lugs.
Both are 32mm-wide, and the Audemars Piguet Replica Watches self-winding comes in at 4.9mm-thick with 259 components, while the chronograph is understandably thicker at 6.8mm and 381 parts. The power reserve for both is a guaranteed minimum of 70 hours, replenished by mighty impressive 22k pink gold oscillating weights with an openworked execution — definitely among the nicest rotors in this price segment.
The Code 11.59 Replica Watches From China is shaping up to be the watch many expected it to be on the first attempt: A well-balanced, intricate, and luxurious watch that showcases the brand’s trademark attention to detail without any compromised distractions.
