Audemars Piguet Millenary Collection Joined by Chronograph

Feb 16, 2009
In 2009, the Audemars Piguet Millenary watch collection, highly appreciated by watch collectors and connoisseurs, has been joined by a majestic chronograph model. The new timepiece has maintained the distinctive oval shape of the Millenary watch that has been suggested by the design of the Roman Coliseum.

The case of the Audemars Piguet Millenary Chronograph watch, measuring 47 x 42mm, is sculptured from 18K pink gold. Its refinement is revealed through satin-brushed and polished finishes.

The Audemars Piguet chronograph demonstrates the signature two-zone dial of the Millenary collection. The applied rose gold Roman hour numerals complete the concentrically decorated black central section of the dial. This section of the dial features the 12-hour and 30-minute chronograph counters, the small seconds sub-dial and a tiny date window.

The chestnut brown outer section of the dial shows the flamboyant tachymeter scale formed by Arabic numerals in brilliant blue color. The central hour and minute hands are in 18K pink gold, while the chronograph central seconds hand is created in brilliant blue matching the numerals of the tachymeter scale. The dial is protected by a sapphire crystal.

The medallion case-back of the watch, also in pink gold, is secured by screws and showcases the Millenary logo in relief. The timepiece is 20-meter water-resistant.

The Audemars Piguet Millenary Chronograph watch accommodates the self-winding Caliber 2385. The column-wheel chronograph mechanism measures time intervals within 1/6 second, with a balance wheel operating at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour. The remarkably slim movement comprises more than 300 hand-finished parts. It provides a 40-hour power reserve.

The Audemars Piguet Millenary Chronograph watch is coupled with a hand-sewn crocodile leather strap featuring blue stitches. It is fitted with a pink gold folding clasp shaped as the brand's initials.

The timepiece was unveiled at SIHH 2009.
