As the title of this post as of now says, the AP Millenary 4101 was one of the most pleasant horological shocks in 2011. Some of you likely realize that I have a shaky area for the Royal Oak, yet this Millenary abruptly showed up on my rundown of most loved looks too. The oval watch case is certainly something else and the way that the oval molded in-house development type 4101 is uniquely worked for this watch makes it much more alluring for me.
The dial with the decentralized little sub dial with the middle pinion (to which the hour and moment hands are connected) make the optical hallucination that the dial is likewise oval. The little seconds sub dial obstructs the 7 and 8 o’clock Roman numerals, yet it is lively and still looks rich. AP presumably understood that their customer base isn’t just Offshore disapproved, however there is as yet an enormous fan base that likes them for their ‘haute horlogerie’ craftsmanship when it comes down to movements.
The wearer of this Millenary ref.4101 can see perhaps the main pieces of it, the departure wheel. Additionally, a ton of Côtes de Genève completed scaffolds have been put to the surface so they can be respected in full. In the event that you look all the more carefully, you will likewise see the magnificent completion of the movement’s fundamental plate. More on very good quality development completing can be found here , something I composed some time ago.
The rotor of the type 4101 development ought to look familiar to you, it gives off an impression of being the mark rotor of AP’s in-house movements. I for one love the hefty looking 22 carat gold rotor with family weapons engraved in it. As you can likewise see on the photos, the case has a the completion you’d anticipate from a watch maker viewed as among the best in Switzerland. The silk brushed side of the case and the high cleaned upper and lower part looks astounding. It resembles a cleaned band that catches the glossy silk brushed case. The crown has been marked AP and in spite of the fact that I haven’t attempted it yet, it gives off an impression of being not difficult to grasp.
Audemars Piguet additionally utilizes the Millenary to show what they are fit for as far as watch making, take the Seconde Morte (lowlife) complication for instance in their Millenary Tradition d’Excellence N°5. This type 4101 Millenary isn’t your ordinary dress watch, yet surely worth considering on the off chance that you can move approx. $22.000 USD for a watch. This Millenary 4101 is additionally accessible in 18 carat pink gold.
The previous age of Millenary watches are minuscule for present day taste, however this 4101 has a wearable component of 47mm (w) x 42mm (l) and just 13mm in stature. The watch comes with a hand-sewn crocodile lash and an AP collapsing fasten in hardened steel or 18 carat pink gold. The catch has the AP initials like we’ve seen on the Royal Oak models with hardened steel bracelets.
