Let’s now talk about the surprise(s) that came together with the launch of this Code 11.59 by perfect replica Audemars Piguet Starwheel. First of all, the surprise comes from the comeback of the complication itself, which has been out of the collection for about 20 years. While the 1990s Star Wheel fake watches for sale have gained attention recently, they were far from successful in the past and have never really caught up on the market when available. It’s only been the last couple of years that the classic Star Wheel has become somewhat hyped. Before that, you could get one for a pretty small budget.
The second surprise is the watch itself. There’s no turning around; this new luxury replica Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Starwheel has very little in common with a 1991 reference 25720, at least visually. There are some strong similarities regarding the way the complication is built. The design, on the other hand, is radically different. From traditional, discreet and almost old-school, we’ve entered an era of boldness, modernity and visual audacity. Don’t necessarily take these words with negativity. Times are changing, and so does 1:1 super clone Audemars Piguet.
What we’re looking at is probably the most playful and striking edition of AAA quality fake Audemars Piguet Code 11.59. This watch has been AP’s vessel for Haute Horlogerie complications for about three years now with openworked tourbillons, some with an additional chronograph function, but also perpetual calendars and even one of the rare Grande Sonnerie movements available currently on the market. This new Starwheel plays in a slightly different league than the others. It’s not so much about the complexity of the function; it’s all about the animation of the dial, the originality of the display and its reinterpretation with 2022 design language in mind.
The case is typical of Code 11.59 by Swiss made replica Audemars Piguet. And yes, it is a rather impressive case that needs to be experienced in real life to be fully understood. It seems simple at first, with a classic round dial opening. But move it slightly to the side, and you’ll discover all the work done by the designers. The lugs are opened, and the construction consists of two metallic elements framing a black ceramic central container with an octagonal shape. The surfaces combine finely brushed and polished finishes (reminiscent of the RO), and there’s a surprising curvature from 12 to 6 o’clock. The crystal follows this line and creates unexpected distortions. So yes, the first 3-hand models were not the best ones. But the dial was to blame. The case of high quality fake Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 is something special.
The new Starwheel retains the 41mm diameter of all models, with a relatively slim profile of 10.7mm. It’s made of 18k white gold and black ceramic, and so is the crown. The finishing is very detailed – the polished bevels on the inner side of the lugs are there to prove it. A continuation of the modern look can be seen with the textured strap with rubber coating, again far from the classic alligator leather you’d expect from a complication watch.
Now let’s talk dial and display. To me, the main evolution of the new Swiss movement fake Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Starwheel has to do with the discs. The old model was all about the sapphire discs and the way the magic behind the wandering hours complication was revealed in all its glory. And in addition, these sapphire discs made the watch light, airy, and delicate. The 2022 reinterpretation of the Starwheel has solid discs and a seconds hand – the latter quite drastically alters the whole idea of the slow-moving complication in the original models. The short video below will give you an idea of how the display works:
Powering this 1:1 fake Audemars Piguet Starwheel is an in-house movement, the calibre 4310, based on the calibre 4309, itself using the base that was introduced in the time-and-date Code 11.59 in 2019. This modern automatic movement has replaced the 3120 and is the brand’s cornerstone calibre. Contemporary in its conception, it retains its 70-hour power reserve despite the wandering hours module on top. The back reveals a refined decoration, with polished edges, Geneva stripes, perlage and an openworked solid gold rotor.
