Ahead of the SIHH, which takes place in less than two weeks time, is a look at Audemars Piguet‘s Millenary Minute Repeater. The timepiece is a wonderful blend of expertise, technical sophistication and innovative materials. Audemars continues to push the envelope and this watch goes show the amount of resources the watchmaker invests in R & D. The Millenary Minute Repeater is fitted with hours, minutes, seconds and minute repeater functions and equipped with a winding system specially developed for its hand-wound Calibre 2910. The refined movement features a new AP escapement, a double balance-spring, and overall construction that’s unparalleled.
The anthracite grey dial looks superb with its applied pink gold Roman numerals and silvered small seconds subdial. The oval-shaped titanium case is mated with a black hand-sewn crocodile leather strap, fastened by a titanium AP folding clasp.
