In the four years since The Best Performing Audemars Piguet Replica Watches introduced its Code 11.59 collection—and it was a collection, with the brand debuting six models at once—the general opinion of the line has shifted.The most recently housing the return of the starwheel. Audemars Piguet is dead serious about this collection, and it’s showing just that by using it to deliver most complicated wristwatch it’s ever made, the all-new Code 11.59 Ultra-Complication Universelle RD#4.
Not only is this the most complicated wristwatch the brand has ever made, but the fourth in the “Research and Development” series. First introduced in 2014 with the Royal Oak Concept Acoustic Research watch, Audemars Piguet uses this designation to showcase its most impressive horological achievements.
Men’s Best Buy Audemars Piguet Replica Watches is debuting the model in four variants: two in 18k white gold with solid dials in black or beige, and two with what the brand describes as “architectural” dials showing off the movement and offered in 18k white gold or 18k pink gold.
The dials display these main complications quite ably, with no feeling of clutter and a pleasing symmetry. The beige and black dials are both described to have an opaline finish, giving them a bit of luster; both feature the collection’s hallmark baton hands, which, along with the applied indices and logo, are the same metal as the cases.
On the architectural dials, the indices are omitted to allow the Nice Audemars Piguet Replica Watches open-worked dial—with bridges and finishing to match the cases–to stand out. My favorite part about these two dials is how the bridges are extended to frame the moonphase, year, and big date. My least favorite thing is that, like most such dials, they appear to drastically reduce legibility.
There’s one final difference related to those subdials to note: On the open dials, rotating date discs concentric with the chronograph subdials are used, while on the solid dials, the disc is concealed and the date displayed through apertures. This is some next-level variability for a single movement, as it has to be made to also accommodate the wider date wheels on the solid dials.
The Cheap Audemars Piguet Replica Universelle RD#4 case required an upsize due to the movement, meaning it measures 42mm-wide and 15.55mm-thick (compared to the Code 11.59’s typical 41mm cases, some of which are as thin as 10.7mm). The case design itself should be mostly familiar: An octagonal midcase recalls the Royal Oak’s design, while a thin, round bezel and caseback, hollowed lugs, and a curved sapphire crystal allow the Code 11.59 watches to do their own, very modern thing.
The watches come paired with a black alligator strap and a branded gold folding clasp, but also include a hybrid black calfskin strap with rubber backing, probably for when you wear this Buy A Watch With Bitcoin to the gym.The new calibre 1000 combines a number of previous technologies, like borrowing the primary complications from the prior three RD watches, and innovations that keep the movement as compact as possible, such as merging the split-seconds mechanism into the central rotor’s ball bearing.
The movement is finished to the same exacting standards as the case, with the bridges polished and stain brushed by hand. While all four models actually feature openworked movements, only the open dials extend the bridges around certain indicators and use the open concentric date wheels as mentioned. Those two Audemars Piguet Replica Buy Now also benefit from two-tone movements, with black base plates creating contrast to better highlight the rest of the mechanics.
