GPHG 2023 Nominee - Men's - Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Starwheel
By SENATUS Magazine | 17 October 2023

Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Starwheel, a timepiece that combines black ceramic with 18-carat white gold. 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. After falling from favour in the 20th century, this system was rediscovered and reintroduced by Audemars Piguet in 1991.

Named the Starwheel, this unusual mechanism equipped many models up until the early 2000s.

Today, the Starwheel is making a comeback in the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet collection, whose ultra-contemporary design highlights this fascinating display while also paying tribute to a relatively unknown classic in Haute Horlogerie complications.
