(The name is Latin to get a quadrennium, which is a four-year period.) The watch also features the famous AP escapement, creating an altogether interesting timepiece.The Audemars Piguet Millenary has become a somewhat oddly shaped timepiece, often chosen by collectors that happen to be interested in the elegant, oval case, with its beautiful, alternating satin-brushed and polished finishing and stepped lugs. Millenary replica watches always features an off-center dial, that was probably most notable within the magnificent Millenary Star Wheel that individuals reviewed extensively on Monochrome Watches.

It automatically switches from February 28/29 to March 1st and automatically corrects for leap years. Which is, before next secular year, which is to be in 2100.The revolutionary Quadriennium lacks to be adjusted after February, at least in three from every 4 years.

The gold screws within the hour/minute dial and also the seconds subdial are a reference to timepieces of yesteryear; however, Inside The Manufacture additionally, they distract the interest, as does the red pointer-date hand. Maybe it's just me watches , but I prefer the quieter form of older Millenary replica watches, such as the Millenary Piano Forte.The balance wheel, that is located in place by way of a large bridge that is beautifully finished personally, is part of the famous Audemars Piguet escapement. This proprietary AP escapement, rolex diamonds using its double balance spring, was originally launched in 2006 within the Millenary Tradition d'Excellence No. 5, and works without lubrication due to its improved geometry. The double hairspring compensates for potential poising flaws, and may increase the watch's chronometry. Take an instant to watch the video below, which perfectly explains how a AP escapement differs from an everyday Swiss anchor escapement.The Audemars Piguet Millenary Quadrennium is available in a 47 x 42-mm rose gold case.
