Audemars Piguet launches the magnificent Millenary Minute Repeater
This is one that defies the art of watch-making. It is believed that the audible indication of the time, initially created to “tell” the time in the dark in an age when electricity had not yet been invented, is one of the oldest of all horological complications. Audemars Piguet has made it part of its fundamental identity, by creating a minute repeater and grand strike models right from the time of its founding in 1875. The brands new Millenary Minute Repeater model is in direct line with this tradition.
This exceptional watch, with it’s titanium oval case featuring rose gold roman numerals, black crock leather strap with titanium “AP” buckle and gold sundials is eye-catching, the manual wind AP Caliber 2910 movement that powers the minute repeater, (located at 7 o’clock) that keeps the watch ticking for 165 hours, the double balance-spring, as well as the hammers and the striking gongs, all become the key players of this truly three-dimensional creation.
