Audemars Piguet 2021: Code 11.59
Summarized in one sentence: the victory of “dual tone”.
In [Reply] Master 01 (you can read this article), this trend started and has continued through code 11.59: more colors in the same case. result? Find!
Therefore, we have launched two new products in the Code 11.59 series, which are undoubtedly the most controversial series in the brand’s history. The pink gold and white gold cases (emphasizing the Associated Press’s intention to use only precious metals) are now combined with black ceramic.
As always, this internal automatic flyback chronograph has a lot of detail. Very worth mentioning is the dial: look at the smoky effect and how it matches the light, especially in the middle. Speaking of the middle, the middle part or layer of the box is a good supplement. The idea of contrasting the octagonal part of the case with the rest further highlights the fusion of the shapes that make this watch.
The most important thing is: a perfect strap that makes this watch truly aggressive and distinctive. Associated Press, as always.
Audemars Piguet 2021: Royal Oak Offshore Diver
New movement, new strap… new watch! This Diver is the same, gool ol’ Offshore, but has a new identity. This watch is available in three colors (khaki, gray and blue), with a new aesthetic, but most importantly, it has new features.
In addition to the internal movement, this time, we turn our attention to the strap: Audemars Piguet developed a system on this watch for the first time, allowing you to change the strap and buckle completely autonomously.
They also changed the movement and adjusted different aesthetic elements, which makes Offshore even more desirable.
Audemars Piguet 2021: Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph
The good news: the new Offshore Chronograph has a diameter of 43 mm-slightly smaller than the previous one-which is what many people have been wanting now.
We found five very versatile colors, with new ergonomic design and two important details. The first is the 4401 self-made movement: this is a very technologically advanced movement, and we are very happy to see it being included in various AP series.
The second innovation, quick release, really tempered the Diver soul of this watch. I tried it myself and I can tell you that it is really comfortable and well done, but first of all it is easy to use.
Audemars Piguet 2021: Royal Oak Offshore Automatic Flying Tourbillon Flyback Chronograph
Although it looks similar, this is not a concept, believe it or not. Through this piece, Audemars Piguet reconciled two complications that I like to see together: chronograph (flyback) and tourbillon.
The size is 43 mm. In short, it looks great and I can’t emphasize how much I want to try this! As far as I am concerned, this is probably the best work in the Offshore series. However, like many things in life, it may not be for everyone.
Audemars Piguet 2021: Royal Oak Automatic Chronograph
The protagonist here is Cal again. 4401 powers this watch… it’s time!
In addition to quality and structure, the beauty of this movement lies in its Flyback complication, which allows you to restart the chronograph without pressing the reset button or stopping the timing.
The focus of this edition is the 41mm size, full rose gold construction, the new blue and brown Grande Tapisserie dial, and-obviously-the matching bracelet and strap. In fact, I would even say that these straps can make this watch sit at home in formal occasions!
Although I am not a big fan of the sapphire caseback (and hate the date window on the chronograph), I am very satisfied with the overall release of this time.
Audemars Piguet 2021: Royal Oak “Jumbo” with factory diamond inlays
You may already know it, but diamonds are something I like…
Now, they also seem to be AP things, because we have 3 new versions. Choosing the Jumbo case (39 mm) is perfect: in my opinion, both men and women of this size can wear it comfortably!
The dial and hour markers are beautifully hue…Although I don’t like cases and bracelets with brilliant-cut diamonds, this watch will surely humiliate broken pieces…that is, if you think about it.
Audemars Piguet 2021: Green, the color of hope…
You have done this and we know that this is what you clicked on… So here we are: the new green AP Royal Oak and all its flavors!
The five variants that may be sold out in a few seconds used to be and are everything we didn’t know we wanted.
Audemars Piguet 2021: The Green Royal Oak “Jumbo”
This is the most beautiful 15202 I have seen so far. Much better than blue…
Of course, it is not steel, but platinum: a metal that is more suitable for Audemars Piguet brands. But while it may be great, the platinum structure is not the reason you are here.
That beautiful green dial is really good, isn’t it? Smoky, sunny, minimal, classic…
I’m sure I am not the only one who said this is my favorite version so far!
It is not a limited edition, but there are rumors that the production will be very scarce. In addition, they are only available through AP House (AP “houses” around the world, one of which is in Milan), and all of them have been…
Do I dream of seeing one on my wrist? Yes.
Would I like it more than any other watch in the catalog? Too.
Will I wear one in the near future or even the distant future? I certainly hope so.
Audemars Piguet 2021: Green Royal Oak Flyback Chronograph
This is a limited edition gold watch with a stunning green dial and classic Grande Tapisserie plaid texture. Different from the previous models, in this iteration, we used the 2385 movement, which is a “plain and simple” movement without a flyback function.
Hey, you can’t have everything, can you? In addition, the green made up for the absence of the flyback.
I would love to see what the leather strap can add to this watch. Although I think it is not as eye-catching as the Jumbo, it is still a great timepiece.
Audemars Piguet 2021: Green Royal Oak Flying Tourbillon
All three variants of this flying tourbillon have a 41mm case and textbook Tapisserie dial, yes, you guessed it, green!
Let you guess which one I like best.
Making everything in a limited edition is an interesting choice, but still understandable. The titanium version is indeed unorthodox to some extent, but I think it was done deliberately. I think AP is making bold predictions about the next most popular material after steel.
If it weren’t for the 41mm case, I might prefer them to Jumbo.
Audemars Piguet 2021: Cooperation with Marvel
More details are coming soon, but it has been confirmed that Audemars Piguet will cooperate with Marvel to produce some watches inspired by comics and movie characters. The press release also talked about timepieces inspired by Gerald Genta’s old works, which feature characters.
When more news emerges, we will strive to stay ahead. I personally can’t wait!
