Could 38MM Be The New Sweet Size For Best Quality UK Replica Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Watches?

The Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet embraces the trend for smaller timepieces.

Thirty-eight millimetres has always been my favourite case size. Small enough to not look like I’m wearing a man’s watch, but large enough to show that I am serious about my top replica watches, it just sits right on my wrist in every sense. 

A case in point

Case sizes have fluctuated greatly over the last 30 years, going up to 50 mm and beyond at the turn of the 2000s. Over the last few years, however, the average watch size has been slowly decreasing with the typical men’s AAA UK fake watches measuring around the 41 mm mark. This is most probably due to the exploding trend for vintage timepieces, which were historically much smaller and have played a big influence on today’s horological aesthetic. 

Sizing up

One brand with its finger on the pulse in terms of sizes is Audemars Piguet. It kickstarted the big watch craze in the 1990s with the Royal Oak Offshore that went up to 48 mm in diameter, starting a trend for oversized and impressive luxury replica watches that would dominate the watch landscape for over two decades. This was a trend that was – and still is – favoured by those with large wrists who love the look of a big and bold wristwatch. 

For all those whose morphology doesn’t rock the sizeable and flamboyant, the trend for smaller more elegant timepieces has been welcomed with open arms (excuse the pun)! The introduction of the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet copy watches for sale in 2019 brought about a new refined approach to watchmaking with two case sizes, 41 mm and 42 mm, featuring a distinctive three-part case design. Incorporating an octagonal case middle, an ultra-thin bezel, and a round case back, all meticulously finished with satin brushing and polished chamfers, the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet ushered in a fresh and sophisticated form of elegance. 

A petite revolution

Continuing this move towards a smaller refined style, Le Brassus-based Manufacture is unveiling a new 38 mm size today with two pink gold variations. These new Swiss made replica watches – in a choice of purple or ivory – follow the collection’s latest design evolution unveiled earlier this year, which includes embossed dials and matching alligator straps with large square scales. The eye-catching dials reproduce a gradient structure that was developed by Audemars Piguet in collaboration with Swiss guilloché craftsman Yann von Kaenel and include hundreds of tiny holes that move outwards from the centre in a ripple effect. The purple and ivory hues are created using PVD and accentuate both the dial colour and the play on the light. 

The latest generation Calibre 5900

This new-sized Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet collection is powered by the latest generation self-winding Calibre 5900 which indicates the hours, minutes, seconds, and a date. This calibre first appeared in 2022 on some of the 37 mm Audemars Piguet Royal Oak super clone watches wholesale. The manufacture movement combines a slim 4 mm thickness, a high 4Hz frequency, and a 60-hour power reserve. The movement is also fitted with a 22-karat pink gold oscillating weight and is decorated with refined finishing – such as polished angles, vertical satin brushing, Côtes de Genève, circular graining, and chamfering – that can all be admired through a sapphire crystal caseback. 

These two new cheap Audemars Piguet fake watches may have been designed with feminine tastes in mind, but 38 mm is becoming increasingly stylish with all the sexes, so I think we are going to be seeing more and more of these in the future, which is definitely good news for me, and hopefully good news for you too!

Luxury UK Fake Audemars Piguet’s New Royal Oaks And Other Cool Watches For 2023

February is upon us, and with it, Audemars Piguet has dropped new replica watches for sale for 2023 ranging from some of its most affordable (well, relatively speaking) to some of its most complicated and, shall we say, far-from-affordable. Though best known for the classic hype watch, the Royal Oak, collectors also know the brand (“AP”) for its high-end watchmaking. That’s all on display among the new releases, and it’s the aggressively sporty Royal Oak Offshore’s 30th anniversary, too.

The brand recently also announced it will be following the likes of Rolex and other established brands and opening a certified pre-owned program. As for new high quality fake watches, though, here are the most notable releases from Audemars Piguet for the first half of 2023.

Replica Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Watches in Steel

The Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 copy watches wholesale, introduced in 2019, now comes in versions that appear conceived as a relatively accessible, entry-level option — not “affordable” for most people, mind you, but relatively so within the brand’s catalog. We’re talking 41mm models with automatic movements, three with simple time-only functionality and three chronographs.

For the first time in the collection, four of those models are produced entirely in steel (the faceted case middles of two more are in ceramic). They also feature a new, stamped dial texture which, like the AAA UK replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches’ “tapisserie” dial, will be a distinguishing feature of the collection going forward.

Diameter: 41mm


Price: $25,300-$37,400

Fake Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Ultra-Complication Universelle Watches

That’s how many things this new version of the 11.59 can do. With a chronograph, multiple chiming mechanisms, a flying tourbillon and more, it’s the most complicated best replica watches AP has ever made, with the movement inside comprising no fewer than 1,155 tiny, hand-finished components.

23 of those features count as horological complications (listed out below), but suffice it to say this is how one of the most respected and prestigious Swiss watchmakers flexes its muscles. Impressive as all that micro engineering is, it’s almost equally so that they fit it all inside a 42mm-wide, 15.5mm-thick case — and that they made an effort for it to be easy to use, without the need of any tools for adjustments. Though very modern in its design, it takes inspiration from a pocket watch from 1899.

Diameter: 42mm

Complications: Chronograph, split seconds, minutes counters, hours counters, flyback function, minute repeater, grande sonnerie, petite sonnerie, silence, quarters silence, locking of automatic and manual activation when the barrel is insufficiently wound, automatic winding of the grande sonnerie barrel, Supersonnerie, perpetual calendar, date display, day display, month display, moonphase, year display, semi-Gregorian, accurate astronomical moon, tourbillon, automatic winding

Price: 1,450,000-1,600,000 CHF

New Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica Watches

No AP SKU dump would be complete without some new Royal Oak collection additions — and despite all the newness, this is what a lot of people will still get excited about. There’s new perfect super clone Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin watches with a grainy dial and white gold case, an ultra-thin perpetual calendar — and the one that visually stands out most, to us: the Selfwinding show above with a yellow gold case and turquoise dial.

Diameter: 37mm

Complications: Date

Price: $61,500

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph Fake Watches

It’s the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 30th anniversary replica watches for men this year, so expect that this is only the beginning of this years releases celebrating it. Originally launched in 1993, this is inspired by the original, but with some modern upgrades — and a fully ceramic case and bracelet. In addition to this historical tribute, AP also introduced even more technical and edgy models in its Offshore Concept collection such as a Split Second Chronograph GMT in titanium with a large date.

Diameter: 42mm

Complications: Chronograph

Price: $70,000

Audemars Piguet Brings Back The Starwheel Fake Watches Online UK

What We Know

Let’s get a couple of things about perfect replica Audemars Piguet‘s Code 11.59 collection watches out of the way up front. It was introduced in 2019 as a clear commercial effort by AP to be something more than the Royal Oak. Second, that initial time-only Code 11.59 was a relatively uninspired way to introduce a collection that was supposed to represent “the future of AP.”

Today, Audemars Piguet announced the latest addition to the Code 11.59 collection, the “Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Starwheel.” More than three years since that initial Code 11.59 release – and more than 30 Code 11.59 models into the collection – we’re far enough removed from that initial launch to evaluate new Code 11.59 models on their own terms. Not every release needs to be a referendum on Audemars Piguet or the Code 11.59.

That said, this might be the most interesting Code 11.59 yet.

Yes, it’s an inherently weird watch, with a complication originally designed by a couple of Roman clockmakers for a pope in the 17th century, and a brash case construction that’s as technically fascinating as it is confounding to wear. No, this particular top UK fake watches isn’t the “next Royal Oak,” or even “the future of AP” – it’s just a watch, and that’s just fine.

This new 1:1 wholesale replica Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Starwheel watches has a wandering hours complication inside an 18-karat white gold Code 11.59 case with a black ceramic midcase. It’s a time-only watch. The 12 wandering hour disks “wander” across the dial, with the current hour pointing to the current minute along the 120-degree minute track at the top of the dial. For example, the time in the image above is about 10:36. The next hour disk reaches the minute track at the turn of the hour. It’s actually a somewhat intuitive, elegant way of telling the time. The rotating disks are fixed on the central rotor wheel, each attaching to the rotor by a star wheel at the center of the disk. Hence the name.

It’s a little trite to call anything in watchmaking “romantic” nowadays, but I guess it’s fitting here: Not only is the wandering hour complication itself anachronistic, but so is the effect on the wearer. One could, if one wanted, wax poetic about watching each hour rise and set as it works its way across the dial, like a (just slightly) more practical moonphase. The implementation is fairly simple, too. The central rotor completes a revolution every three hours, while the hour disks make a quarter turn (90 degrees) every hour.

At $57,900, the price isn’t outlandish (well, not any more outlandish than, say, Cartier asking $44,000 for its new Pebble). Sure, it’s a lot of money, but it’s not a lot more than you’d pay for an original Audemars Piguet Starwheel from the 1990s, and there’s a hell of a lot more modern watchmaking to unpack here.

To achieve this, Audemars Piguet added a wandering-hour module to its time-only caliber 4309. On the dial, black opaline disks rotate above a blue aventurine dial and a black inner bezel. The font on the hour disks and minute track is decidedly modern, and a white gold center seconds sweeps atop the whole apparatus. Meanwhile, the white gold case, with its black ceramic midcase (which we’ve seen AP use a few times now), is the type of complicated construction AP promised when it first introduced the Code 11.59 copy watches for men, beveled edges and all.

The Starwheel complication is a callback to the Starwheel AP introduced in 1991, which is itself an implementation of the wandering hours complication that Roman clockmakers the Campani Brothers developed for a pope in the 17th century (here’s an example of the complication in one of their clocks in the British Museum). The original Starwheel had a traditional, 36mm case, a dressy watch that had more in common with AP’s ultra-thin perpetual calendar than with the Swiss movements replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches. A wandering hours complication in a traditional profile wasn’t intended to rival the Royal Oak in 1991, nor is it in 2022.

AP produced the Starwheel in a number of variations through the early ’90s, typically in yellow gold or platinum (and eventually, in rose gold), with guilloche or Arabesque engraved dials. Rarer are gem-set examples: last year, Antiquorum sold a pair of unique Starwheels with ruby- and emerald-set bezels for more than $100,000. Like the entire made-up category of neo-vintage, appreciation for Starwheels of all types has grown: While a standard yellow-gold Starwheel could be found selling for $8,000 just four years ago, today they might sell for $30,000 to $40,000.

In 1996, Audemars Piguet discontinued this first generation of the Starwheel, along with the rest of its classic model lineup (goodbye, Starwheel; goodbye ultra-thin perpetual calendar; hello, The Beast!). But AP wasn’t finished with the Starwheel altogether: it’d bring back the complication in its short-lived John Shaeffer Collection, and then in the Millenary. The John Schaeffer Collection was inspired by a single cushion-shaped minute repeater fake watches shop from the early 1900s, commissioned by American industrialist (and watch collector) John Schaeffer.

In the 1990s, AP used the watch as inspiration to introduce a small line of mostly complicated replica watches site. Among these were limited runs of the Starwheel, paired in a cushion case along with a minute repeater – production of these is counted in the dozens, with most variations having been produced in limited runs of ten, five, or three. Nowadays, these John Schaeffer Starwheels are some of the most coveted: The last example to publicly surface sold for $100,000 more than two years ago. Finally, in 2000, to celebrate its 125th anniversary AP introduced a limited edition of the Starwheel in the Millenary.

While AP was finished with the Starwheel by 2000, its impact on the watch industry remained: most notably, Urwerk has used the wandering hours complication in dizzying varieties since its launch in 1997. Not only that, but hardcore collectors – and even staffers inside AP, by its own admission – immediately lamented the departure of the Starwheel. To many, the original Starwheel represents an example of a large Swiss brand innovating its way beyond the Quartz Crisis.

Sure, it’s not an icon like the Royal Oak. Nor is it as important to best Audemars Piguet super clone watches as its ultra-thin perpetual calendar. But the Starwheel is a niche that collectors have come to enjoy, not only for its unique aesthetic and way of displaying time but also for the era of watchmaking it represents. For serious collectors, the Starwheel is something to collect in its own right. And in a world where collectors love “firsts,” the Starwheel will always have a following as the first modern wandering hours watch.

Today, the Starwheel is back where it started, with AP. Only time will tell if this new Starwheel – or really, Code 11.59 more broadly – will mean something similar to this era.

What We Think

Enough of the history lesson. Let’s talk about this Code 11.59 Starwheel and how it wears. Take a look at most comment sections of our Code 11.59 coverage, and you’ll see a common sentiment shared (okay, you’ll see a few common sentiments): One is reflexive snark dating back to the original release, which by now is a tired joke. A more constructive take is that the Code 11.59 needs to be seen in person to be really understood, if not appreciated. Honestly, I think the Starwheel photographs as well as any Code 11.59 yet (maybe that’s just thanks to this ace photography from Mark Kauzlarich, though), but yes – it’s still a better experience in person.

When I tried it on, AP also had on hand a few 1990s Starwheels, including a minute repeater from the John Shaeffer Collection. At 41mm, the new Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Starwheel replica watches paypal is a completely different on-wrist experience compared to the original. It’s not classic watchmaking; it’s avant-garde meets Renaissance.

With the thin bezel and that double-curved Code 11.59 crystal (when looked at in profile it feels like an optical illusion), the dial feels absolutely massive on the new Starwheel. And AP has put all that real estate to good use. The dial’s anything but plain or boring like that original collection of time-only Code 11.59 models. The aventurine dial fits nicely with the wandering hour complication, which was first developed with some inspiration from the motion of the planets. With the wandering hour disks levitating above like satellites communicating information back to Earth, it’s downright interstellar. The aventurine oscillates between shades of purple with the light while glittering like the night sky (or, how I imagine the night sky might look in Montana) in a way that can’t be captured in photos (here’s a quick video of the dial in action). The original Starwheel from the ’90s didn’t have a seconds hand; ever the purist, I’d prefer the Code 11.59 without one, too.

The combination of white gold and a ceramic midcase is particularly striking, with AP also adding a ceramic crown for the Starwheel. Perhaps because of the Code 11.59’s three-piece construction, the luxury fake watches seems to appear thicker in photos than it wears (it’s only 10.7mm thick). Sure, it’s big, but the case isn’t overwhelming; the construction (particularly the hollow lugs) and details like beveled edges break up the case, and more importantly, make it easy to wear. Oh, and the strap feels much higher quality than would ever come across in photos. It looks like canvas, but it’s much more, textured and coated in a strong rubber. A few other Code 11.59s on leather straps were also around when I tried on the Starwheel, and I prefer the case on this canvas/rubber; it dresses the watch down just enough without feeling cheap.

Like I said, there’s a lot going on here. Does the aventurine dial and ceramic midcase with the wandering hours and all those disks with the three-piece Code 11.59 case – all with the historical overlay of the wandering hours complication and its 17th-century papal origins – work together?

I was chatting with an artist the other day (I know, sick brag, Tony), who explained to me how every painting, no matter how simple or how busy, needs an “entry point,” a place that pulls your eyes in first before they work their way across the rest of the painting. Now, I’m not one of those people who argues that watchmaking is art or anything like that, but I couldn’t help but think of this artist’s idea as the wandering hour disk indicating the current time naturally caught my eyes before they, well, wandered across the other disks and caught a glimpse of the aventurine underneath, before then trying to figure out what the hell was going on with that case. It made me think that maybe all the stuff going on with the Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Starwheel replica watches store actually does work together.

As Logan hypothesized after the last round of (complicated) Code 11.59 releases, perhaps this is the best use of the Code 11.59: as a home for complications. Not just complications in the traditional, mechanical watchmaking sense (after all, wandering hours aren’t that complicated, as far as such things go), but also in case making, in materials, in throwing a bunch of things together and seeing what sticks.

I already mentioned AP’s John Shaeffer Collection from the 1990s – back then, it was “innovative” for AP to stick its complicated, modern watchmaking in those traditional, cushion cases. But would it be today? Sure, it’d be a hit – just look at what Cartier’s done with its Privé collection the last few years. So-called purists gush over it, hardly mentioning the (ahem) aggressive pricing of that limited-edition Pebble. But what AP’s trying with the Code 11.59 is more challenging – more challenging to itself as a manufacturer and to us as so-called collectors. More, well, complicated.

Is the Code 11.59 Starwheel the future of AP beyond the high quality Audemars Piguet Royal Oak fake watches? Of course not, nor does it claim to be. But if AP is to find such a future, it’s not going to be in superheroes or soundboards. It’ll be in the type of watchmaking that the Starwheel represents.
