Summer is always a great pretext to ditch monochrome in favour of brighter, sunnier shades. With more and more watchmakers lavishing colour on their dials, the opportunity is too good to miss.
A year after its official launch, Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet continues to evolve with five new self-winding date, hour, minute and second references and five new self-winding chronograph models, with complex lacquered dials and a palette of deep colours.
Hard stones return to Piaget with this new edition of the Altiplano Tourbillon, its dial a skilful marquetry of malachite or lapis-lazuli.
The H²O continues to track time using fluid mechanics, under a sapphire crystal dome that is as pristine and perfectly transparent as a piece of lab equipment.
