The Ceramic Middle Case of the New Code 11.59 Chronograph 2021

Audemars Piguet crafted the black ceramic middle case of the new Code 11.59, associating with a Swiss precision elements supplier, Bangerter. From beginning to end, it is a challenging task to create the ceramic middle case. It follows a delicate industrial technique.

Firstly, the watchmaker machines the ceramic case using exact diamond tools and pre-polishes the geometrical surfaces. Then, experts at Bangerter finish the construction of the middle case using hand.

  • The merging of the gold bezel, case back and lugs with the black ceramic bezel give rise to several new technical challenges.
  • And the team goes beyond their limits to combat them impeccably.
  • Moreover, they also need to ensure that the dial’s vertical satin-finishing perfectly coordinates the case’s traits tires.

However, Audemars Piguet offers both the white and pink gold models a smoked dark grey dial. It comes with a vertical satin base that complements the modified satin-brushed case, inner black bezel, and chronograph counters.

The Audemars Piguet team faced another challenge while designing the black ceramic middle case. They required ensuring that the gold and ceramic components sported AP’s trademark alteration of polished and satin-brushed chamfers.

However, another challenge for the designers is to obtain a precise balance between the elements’ angular and rounded surfaces. This paves the way for a fascinating light play.

The Latest In-house Movement

The new Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Self-winding Chronograph watch runs on the Calibre 4401. It is the brand’s latest integrated movement. Well, if you flip the timepiece, the beautiful embellishments on the movement will fascinate you.

  • The sapphire case back displays components of the movement, like the chronograph hammers and the column wheel.

Overall, the new AP Code 11.59 bi-tone watches take the hand-finishing and manufacturing of the multifaceted case to a new height. They represent uncompromising craftsmanship and bold aesthetics.
