Is it hard to get Code 11.59 Perpetual Calendar 26394OR

Hi everyone, I am new to the forum and AP. I have not had any AP timepiece before and am interested in Code 11.59 Perpetual Calendar 26394OR and would like to get this particular one. May I ask if this timepiece is hard to get, meaning is allocation required or this can be found readily available? If it is hard to get without a purchase history, may I ask how long the wait is?

Thanks everyone!

Can connect you to the boutique SA and they will be able to make this happen.

Hi, you mean the perpetual calendar 11.59 is obtainable as first watch from AP?

I would imagine any 11.59 is pretty easy to obtain.

Oh, is the 11.59 perpetual calendar really easy to obtain? I understand that time only and chronograph are easy to obtain but not sure on perpetual calendar though..

I don’t believe they’re cranking out too many of these. That said, shouldn’t be hard to land with some waiting.

Only 100 pieces a year of the PC CODE, you will need excellent relations and expect some wait...I will have an incoming soon to illustrate!

Good luck

They are tough to get - apparently only making 100 for the entire collection (not p.a.).

It’s a joy to wear and own. QP and Tourbillon openworked are the toughest CODEs to get

They made some amendments to the first announcement stating 100 for the collection and confirmed 100 per year.

At least before the summer, they seemed obtainable. I think they sized production about right to not over produce this model especially at that price tag. So I don't think it's suddenly hot, just needing to wait for them to roll off assembly line through a not so long line.

In line with this, boutique told me they got two so far. May require some good fortune to acquire without history.

Sure thing, It was communicated to me by AP staff when I last visited my local AP House, since I am getting the watch I asked for some details about production numbers. Also easy way to check this, go to the AP website and you will find that every limited number production watch has the mention «Limited Edition» somewhere written in the description and of course at the back of the watch case, neither of which is the case with the PC CODE. Plus in all the interviews of FHB the CEO of AP he never says it is a limited edition of 100 rather that they will produce 100 the first year...

Also, the CODE 11.59 QP once said Limited Edition / 100 on the website listing. That was removed earlier this year, coinciding with the decision to limit its production to 100/year.

I’d agree
