Decoding the Code 11.59 Perpetual Calendar

Post by koimaster » March 13th 2019, 2:44pm

Every year at SIHH, it seems the attending watch media comes in with the same two nagging questions about Audemars Piguet: Is the brand ever going to expand its scope beyond its mega-popular and emblematic Royal Oak collections (and accept that its Millenary and Jules Audemars are niche products at best)? And is it ever going to debut a watch with a fully in-house, integrated chronograph caliber? Well, this year (coincidentally or not, its last year for the foreseeable future as an exhibiting brand at SIHH) AP answered both of those questions in the affirmative with the much-discussed launch of an entirely new collection, called Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet.

It has been carefully ogled, it has been weighed, it has been measured, and it was found ghey.

Easily the most reviled watches at this year's SIHH, almost universally panned and disdained.

As for me, I didn't mind the styling, and I have no interest in AP to begin with - but it's been funny to watch the Nancy boys stomp their feet and blow snot bubbles (including the feeb YouTube mokes would couldn't afford one during their lifetimes, since they live in their mother's basements to begin with). It's as if, as a company, AP is allowed to only make Royal Oaks in 2,546 different styles, and nothing else.

Still, it's worth seeking out reviews of the Code 11.59 stuff, since people are blowing their tops over it.
