When Audemars Piguet Replica launched Code 11.59 last year, the most eye-catching in the series were two watches with smoked enamel dials, the minute repeater and the flying tourbillon. On the other hand, the basic model is ordinary and looks a bit flat.
Like the standard version of the case, the Audemars Piguet Bolshoi Replica version looks and feels the same on the wrist. Although the 41 mm by 10.7 mm of the watch is not excessive, it feels larger than the actual size. At the same time, the feel is also very firm.
Sapphire crystal bends on two planes-Audemars Piguet often uses it as a key feature of watches-creating interesting but unobtrusive optical effects. Fortunately, the crystal is coated with an anti-reflective coating, so the curvature does not affect readability at all.
The center of the dial is rich and eye-catching blue, the edges of the dial gradually become black, and the tones around the dial are even. This effect is not achieved with dark enamel, but with a slightly thicker enamel layer at the edges.
The raised flange of the minute number is black lacquered, not enamel, but the color matches the dial very well, making the transition from dial to flange almost seamless.
Coupled with the applied pure white gold hour markers and a neat date frame, the result is an excellent Swiss Audemars Piguet Replica dial.
