Audemars Piguet has dropped four new complicated watches highlighting the brand’s use of complications and a mix of metals.

Audemars Piguet’s Code 11.59 collection continues to mature with some solid design choices being made in recent months. Here AP has taken advantage of the model’s complex case construction to create a bimetal watch with a vivid 18k pink gold caseband sitting in contrast against an otherwise white gold case.

Given the recessed nature of the 11.59’s caseband, the warm flash of color is only visible from the sides. When looking directly at the watch, the grey tones of the white gold bezel, open-worked tourbillon movement and grey rubber/fabric strap dominate.

New Pieces From Audemars Piguet Include a Titanium Supersonnerie And a Striking Bimetal Code 11.59

Audemars Piguet are masters of bringing fresh relevance to high complications and there are few better examples than its Supersonnerie development, which set out to improve the volume and acoustic performance of chiming watches.

Here the Supersonnerie Calibre 2953 is presented inside a titanium Royal Oak with a smoked grey tapisserie dial – with small seconds – complimenting the gun metal tone of the titanium case.

Titanium has also been used for a new version of the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar, here with a redesigned blue tapisserie dial with contrasting smooth grey chronograph sub dials. The watch drops as a US exclusive this month followed by an international release in October, priced £71,400 GBP ($98,900 USD).

And finally, AP has put its latest Calibre 4401 chronograph movement inside two new variations of its 41mm Royal Oak Frosted Gold Chronograph in either 18k pink or white gold with blue and black dials. The model had previously only been available in white gold with either silver or purple dials. Japan gets a first-look at these models in September before dropping globally next month, priced £65,400 GBP ($90,500 USD).
