Audemars Piguet has unveiled the Millenary Carbon A single Tourbillon Chronograph which is considered by connoisseurs of Haute Horlogerie as one of the most important timepieces by Audemars Piguet in recent a long time. |
Let me begin with the watch's AP Calibre 2884, an remarkable oval hand-wound column-wheel chronograph tourbillon motion 100% independently designed, formulated and assemble by this Audemars Piguet. This motion with higher performance is large complicated. It truly is composed of a tourbillon, double barrels and column-wheel chronograph mechanism. The accuracy in the watch is Hublot Big Bang greatly enhanced from the the tourbillon, although the accuracy of chronograph is ensured through the coupling lever in black PVD-coated nickel. Along with the double barrels ensure an adorable 10-day energy reserve for the watch. The movement is known as a traditional fusion of selected materials including blackened metal, Tag Heuer Grand Carrera aluminium and PVD-coated nickel. The surfaces of components display elegant contrast in between polished and brushed finishing.
Dimension in the 47 x 42mm, the innovative oval case is also a great mixture of numerous materials. The oval body is presented in forger carbon, an excellent material that the latest Royal Offshore line is created from and famous for, and also the bezel and crown and pushers are carried out in ceramics,along with the case again Omega Seamaster Watch as well as the folding clasp are crafted from blackened metal. I love how the smooth black Omega Speedmaster tone of ceramic sets off the matte texture in the forged Carbon.
The open-worked dial fully shows the brand's intense effort in three-dimensional pattern by means of revealing the intricate still well-executed multi-layered structure with the movement. Along with the barrels that appear in the very depths from the mechanism may be the focus of attention apart from the golden tourbillon cage with redesigned bridges. And I adore the bridges that sit at each side of the 30-minute chronograph counter at the same time. As inspired by motor sports, the dial capabilities sporty white and red tones on the hands and markings. Plus the power reserve scale is located at the left side from the dial. And sufficient luminescent coating is applied around the hour markers and the hands to ensure reading in the darkness.
