Description

26393CR.OO.A009CR.01 – CODE 11.59 SELFWINDING CHRONOGRAPH

The element that to me provided insight into the crazed attention to detail in the design and case construction of Audemars Piguet’s now two-year-old Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet was, innocuously enough, a small screw. Specifically, a high-polished, screw-slotted, hexagonal-shaped threaded device used to retain the attachment for the strap.

This solid bar slips through each side of the strap and is milled — in the words of Peter Speake-Marin, aka the Naked Watchmaker — to resemble “a balance staff”. It fits between the two lugs and is secured with the screws in question. Which, if you think about it, is an incredibly complex way to attach a strap.
