Time is on my side
A statement of creative freedom and free-spirited individuality, this watch puts time on women’s side, its single hand defying contemporary conventions of time measurement.
The 18-carat pink gold case presents alternating satin brushing and Frosted Gold finishing, a technique Audemars Piguet owes to Florentine jewellery designer Carolina Bucci. The diamond-dust effect it creates nicely contrasts with the hand-polished bevels adorning the case and lugs.
The see-through caseback reveals the oscillating weight, which coloured plates recall the hand-crafted dimpled dial in shades of brown/blue.
Adding to the current hand-wound collection, this watch is equipped with a new selfwinding movement, calibre 3140. This movement is endowed with a patented mechanism which ticks the hand around the dial in an elliptical trajectory.
Millenary: A Canvas for Creativity
Since it first appeared in 1995, the Millenary has been a canvas for creativity with its elliptical case, eccentric dials and visible hand-wound movement. Inspired by architecture and art, this watch of contrasts intertwines technical savoir-faire and innovative design.
A Glimpse at History
Audemars Piguet introduced its first hand-wound “Philosophique” watch in 1982, in the midst of the quartz crisis. The advent of quartz shook the foundation of the watchmaking industry, spurring watchmakers to find innovative solutions to the ravages caused by the emergence of this new technology. The Philosophique reminded us that watches had been, and continue to be, worn first and foremost as social and emotional markers.
