SIHH 2011 NewsAudemars Piguet Millenary Automatic
Drawing upon the impressive range of expertise built up by Audemars Piguet, this new Millenary watch is enriching a classic yet architectural line that already includes such exceptional models as the Tradition d’Excellence N°5, MC 12, Deadbeat Seconds, MC One, and the more recent Minute Repeater.
The generous volume provided by the oval shape of its case serves to magnify the three-dimensional movement construction that thereby perpetuates the family likeness established by its predecessors. Nonetheless, above and beyond the initial impression of technical beauty and sophistication, this watch naturally sparks curiosity.
The watchmakers of Le Brassus have achieved the feat of actually bringing a movement to the wrist, rather than just a watch in the conventional sense. There is indeed no need to turn the watch over to admire its interior through the sapphire crystal, since the new Calibre 4101 has been literally “turned upside down” to reveal its inner workings through the front of the watch.
