Three-dimensional audemars piguet millenary carbon one tourbillon chronograph replica watch design aims to move beyond the classic opposition between outside and inside, between the interior of the watch – its movement – and the exterior – meaning the case and the dial with its multiple displays. It shows a calibre featuring a modern design that plays on symmetrical effects such as between the barrels and their bridges on either side of the chronograph counter; on redesigned shapes such as the tourbillon bridge; and on materials. Thanks to the openworked dial, the clearly reveals the manner in which its parts are layered on various levels.
In another nod to the automobile world, the audemars piguet millenary replica watch offset grid on the subdial at 3 o’clock evokes ventilation ducts and is a component in its own right, which means the dial has to be made in several parts.Thanks to this plunging view of the movement and to the choice of materials, the predominant impression is black, sporty and high-tech, with a few touches of white and red that are distinctly reminiscent of racing car dashboard instruments. The is intended for connoisseurs of Haute Horlogerie with a decided taste for fine mechanical engineering and who like to remain in the forefront of design, at the exact place where the exterior and the movement meet and merge, and where aesthetic and technical factors blend into a unified whole.
Guided by a concern to achieve consistency and continuity, black high-tech materials are also used for the watch exterior. The case middle of the calls for a set of filaments totalling 12.7 grammes. Placed end to end, these filaments are equivalent to 22.7 metres of carbon wire and 102.2 km of carbon fibres ! The audemars piguet millenary replica is then compressed at high temperature at pressures of over 300 kilos per square centimetre. A set of threaded carbon filaments is placed inside this mould. The inside of the case and the correction of the various drilled holes can thus be meticulously finished. The case middle and lugs are made all of a piece. Audemars Piguet than displays the full force of its expertise in the machining process. This process results in a material composed of 76% carbon and only 24% polyamide. The sophisticated shapes of the are achieved thanks to an appropriate mould. Its exceptional hardness of 626 Vickers can be compared with the 420 Vickers score for alacrite, already a highly resistant material. This wire measuring just one millimetre in diameter is itself composed of several thousand 7-micron carbon fibres held together by a resin wire. The case is in forged carbon, an ultra-light and resistant material exclusively developed by Audemars Piguet, from the manufacturing method through to the related tools.
Rarely has a palette of black shades been so subtle, magnifying the white and red accents of the hour-markers, hands, chronograph counter and power-reserve display that ensure optimal readability and enliven the dial of this extremely exclusive limited series. The audemars piguet replica blackened titanium on the case-back and AP folding clasp on the strap adds another interesting visual contribution.The bezel, crown and pushers are in ceramics, with a shiny black appearance that stands out beautifully against the matt shade of the forged carbon.
