It’s time to break the rules and assert your unique style with an Audemars Piguet Millenary timepiece.  

This Haute Horlogerie collection, with its signature elliptical case that defies conventions and its combination of opal dials, Frosted Gold finish and Polish mesh bracelet, will set you apart.

 ​

In a class of its own

The refined design, originality, femininity and technical savoir-faire of the three new Millenary watches put these timepieces in a class of their own. For those who dare to be different, the Frosted Gold Opal Dial model is the epitome of cool sophistication.

The off-centred dial and small seconds counter are made from white opal, traditionally a lucky charm, but a fragile stone that only the most gifted jewellers dare to cut. Each opal is unique, with its own particular fire, selected for its purity and vivid iridescence.

Framing the dials is a shimmering of pink Frosted Gold, the defining feature of this sumptuous watch. This “perfectly imperfect” finish with a diamond-dust effect comes from hours of meticulous micro-hammering that creates an extraordinary effect, which nicely sets off the gleaming white opal dials.

If you love diamonds, the hand-wound Millenary in white or pink gold with mother-of-pearl dials and diamond-set bezel and lugs is the perfect timepiece to make a style statement.

A second skin feel

The new “Polish” mesh 18-carat gold bracelet adds a distinctively vintage touch and a sensual second skin feel. Timelessly elegant, the supple bracelet is beautifully handcrafted using a traditional technique. Gold coils are densely and precisely woven in alternate directions for a perfect fit and optimal comfort on the wrist.

In pink or white gold to match the case, the Polish mesh bracelet gives a retro vibe to the contemporary off-beat dials for a seductively feminine aesthetics.

The heart of the matter

Inside the 39.5 mm ergonomically designed oval case beats Calibre 5201, a slim and elegant hand-wound movement that forms an integral part of the aesthetics of the watch. Built back to front, the in-house movement has 157 parts, 19 jewels and a 49-hour power reserve. This calibre represents the perfect balance of horological performance and aesthetic appeal.

A play of colours

Whatever the mood, outfit or occasion, there is a bracelet to match with vivid colours and cool materials.

Express your unique character by replacing the Polish mesh bracelet with a strap made of rubber, alligator, textile or a velvet-like finish. Choose from a wide range of bold new colours that include blue, grey, red, pink, bright green and purple to give your autumn wardrobe a new twist.

Ingeniously imagined from the inside out, the Millenary brims with personality and femininity.  Up your style with one of the new models that interweaves technical handcraft with seductive aesthetics.
