Audemars Piguet triumphed at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG), clinching the honorable “Aiguille d’Or” Grand Prix award for its Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet UltraComplication Universelle (RD#4). This honor, awarded for the most remarkable timepiece across all categories, was received by François-Henry Bennahmias and celebrates the AP’s first ultra-complicated self-winding wristwatch within the avant-garde Code 11.59 collection.
The RD#4 timepiece is an homage to Audemars Piguet’s legacy in high-complication horology, brilliantly incorporating advanced ergonomics and modern functionality. It offers the wearer exceptional comfort and user-friendly operation while encapsulating over 1,100 components in the innovative self-winding Calibre 1000. This groundbreaking movement boasts 40 functions, including 23 complications such as a Grande Sonnerie Supersonnerie, a minute repeater, a perpetual calendar, a split-seconds flyback chronograph, and a flying tourbillon.
Audemars Piguet’s commitment to transcending the conventional boundaries of watchmaking is evident in the creation of the Code 11.59. The manufacturer has integrated its latest R&D breakthroughs, including the 2015 Supersonnerie technology, the ultra-thin perpetual calendar movement from 2018, and the high-amplitude oscillator from the 2022 Royal Oak models. Audemars Piguet’s acknowledgment by the GPHG jury highlights the watchmaker’s dedication to pioneering craftsmanship within the watchmaking industry.
