The Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Grande Sonnerie Carillon Supersonnerie is a one-of-a-kind timepiece which brings age-old techniques and ultra-contemporary design together harmoniously/
The multifaceted 18-carat white gold case is enriched with a bespoke guilloché and flinqué enamel dial, whose technical complexity echoes that of the highly complicated movement ticking within. The dial’s white gold plate has been decorated with a dedicated guilloché motif realised by Swiss engine-turning artisan Yann Von Kaenel on a manual lathe machine.
Taking inspiration from drawings found in an old catalogue, Yann Von Kaenel has reinterpreted the acoustic tonality of the chiming watch with an undulating and radiating design evoking sound waves. The guilloché dial has then been hand-finished by Swiss enameller artisan Anita Porchet with translucent enamel in graded shades of blue to animate the guilloché motif’s shimmering plays of light with each movement of the wrist.
