Audemars Piguet Millenary Quadriennium

The brand new Audemars Piguet Millenary Quadriennium features a unique oval case crafted in 18 carat red gold. It boasts an off centred dial in stunning gold white enamel featuring complete calendar display – day at 6’o clock, date at the miniature centre dial featuring red hand and month at 12’o clock.
The hour and minute displays are looked after by two blackened gold hands in association with black Roman numeral markers. For seconds, Audemars Piguet has designed a small seconds counter at 7’o clock of the timepiece. Thus the traditional dial motifs and pink gold form keep the millenary in beautiful shape.
The new “Quadriannual” calendar function requires adjusting just once every leap year. Advanced precision comes in the form of the Audemars Piguet escapement and double balance spring, integrated within the caliber 2905/b01 movement.
