Leading Swiss watch maison Audemars Piguet was awarded the “Aiguille d’Or” Grand Prix for its Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet Ultra-Complication Universelle (RD#4) at the prestigious Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève yesterday.

This RD#4 timepiece pays tribute to the manufacture’s legacy of high complications, while also keeping ergonomics and contemporary usage in mind to offer unprecedented comfort and simplicity of use. 

This new creation regroups the manufacture’s horological savoir-faire into a single movement, the self-winding Calibre 1000, which counts over 1,100 components.

A feat of engineering and fine watchmaking tradition, this pioneering mechanism incorporates 40 functions, including 23 complications, among which a Grande Sonnerie Supersonnerie, a minute repeater, a perpetual calendar, a split-seconds flyback chronograph and a flying tourbillon.
