The Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Starwheel revisits the tradition of wandering hours with a new ultra-contemporary timepiece that combines black ceramic
with 18-carat white gold.
On this occasion, Audemars Piguet collaborated with the French artist Ugo Gattoni who developed an original, colourful and imaginative universe to echo the contemporary design of this timepiece and the mysterious technicality of the wandering time display.
Invented in the 17th century, wandering hours are a type of horological complication that display the hours using a system of satellites that gravitate along a minute scale arranged in the form of an arc. This aesthetic presentation of the hours and minutes brings a certain mystique to the reading of time.
This new 41 mm reference plays with materials by combining an aventurine dial with a case interweaving 18-carat white gold and black ceramic. This diversity of materials as well as the refined hand finishing embellishing the different components create an infinite play of light which underscores the complex design of the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet collection.
