First launched in 2019, the Code 11.59 by perfect fake Audemars Piguet has had a somewhat mixed reception among watch fans: while it’s good to see AP doing more than just Royal Oaks, the UK cheap replica Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 has been criticised for being too simplistic in its design.
It’s an unfair criticism, as the 1:1 replica Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 is actually deceptively complex. A clever ‘sandwiched’ case design with trick floating lugs; a subtly double-curved sapphire crystal; a design that mixes octagonal design codes from the Royal Oak with rounded elements… It’s a real watch fan’s watch.
In a similar story to the TAG Heuer Monza above, the AAA quality fake Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 received a big update from AP earlier this year, with new entry-level stainless steel models with cool stamped dials introduced (which are now the most affordable watches in AP’s lineup) as well as the mental Ultra-Complication Universelle RD#4, which is not just the most complicated Code 11.59 ever released but the most complicated Swiss made replica Audemars Piguet watch ever full-stop.
Now that the high quality fake Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 is in the spotlight, maybe people will start taking it more seriously. In any case, it’s a really underrated watch that deserves to be considered as more than just a second banana to the RO.
