Review: Audemars Piguet – Millenary TourbillonWritten by Alvin Wong
The Millenary’s partially open-worked dial, which shows the escapement peeking out from underneath the hour and minute display, immediately endows the watch with technical weight.
Here, the brand dials up the effect not only with a complication – the entire escapement is seen rotating in a tourbillon carriage – but also with an unbridled shower of diamonds on the case and movement. This range of bejewelled Millenary Tourbillons come under the banner of ‘exceptional creations’, and is a delight for Audemars Piguet fans who desire iconic wrist statements that aren’t part of the Royal Oak range.
Price: S$802,700 (incld GST)
Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches.
