AP Code 11:59 collection perpetual

Mar 09, 2019,10:53 AM

Hi all, not much being said about the new 11:59 collection, I’m looking at the perpetual with the Avertine dial.  Personally I like what AP did with the case and lugs albeit others don’t seem to agree, at least yet.  So to be specific, has anyone gotten one of these new Perpetuals and if so I would like to hear your comments.  The watch is priced at about $74,500 or basically $18,000 less than say a Patek Philippe 5230 and seems like a lot of watch in comparison especially the dial.  if no one has purchased one yet maybe some of you that saw the collection can give me some straight up opinions, thanks for your help in advance...Jim

I seemed have missed this. Very good report, it looks as though AP has an uphill road right now and I’m not sure the Avetine dial will make enough difference for me to pull the trigger...JIm

Very impressive in photos...

...and a bit on the ‘flashy’ side (from pix anyway). This is one I would definitely have to see in person. Speaking of value, there are PP perpetuals out there selling NIB from well-established online dealers for well under retail. A local AD has a 5496P ...

But we all love variety and it’s the spice of life!

Had the chance to strap it on the wrist at SIHH .

Maybe the best looking Code 11.59 imo . ...  

The PC is maybe the best watch of the collection

Because it has the most interesting dial. In this respect, it really takes advantage of the great case design. Please note that the visual rendering due to the special glass may be disturbing. Sometimes, you really think that the dial is sloped! It is a w... 

You are right, the perpetual is really hypnotic but ...

I think they should have fit the cal. 5134 to a thinner case, the ultrathin movement is 4.31 mm while the case is 10.9, ok the new thicker glass but 6.6 mm over are too much, in my opinion.

Much appreciated

I’m going to look at the watch soon but I am hesitating to be the first on the block to buy one. I don’t think the boutique will discount it and I don’t want to take a bath...Jim
