After giving us a preview of the three limited edition 25th anniversary Royal Oak Offshore models destined to be unveiled at 2018 SIHH, Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet has now unveiled the latest additions to the ladies’ Millenary Collection. The second most notable collection in the AP line-up, after the Royal Oak of course, the Millenary hasn’t seen much update to it in the recent past. The range on ladies watches, launched in 1995 and updated in 2015, is inspired by architecture and art. The three new executions add different looks to the existing collection rather than introducing completely new models.
For two of the new timepieces, in white gold and rose gold, the updated design of the case and dial from 2015 has been retained; however, as decorative updates, they are outfitted with beautifully crafted “Polished mesh” bracelets. These bracelets have a vintage look to them thanks to the polished finish which matches the oval shape of the case and the roman numerals on the dial. In addition to that, these individually handmade bracelets are also more comfortable to wear.
The third piece added to the collection is a Millenary with an 18k frosted pink gold case. The attention grabbing look is created through an ancient gold hammering procedure called the Florentine technique. The finish is carried across the case’s various surfaces along with the stepped lugs making it an extremely attractive timepiece. Just like the limited edition Royal Oak Offshore models, the three new Millenary watches will also be unveiled in January at the 2018 SIHH. So we’ll have to wait till then to get more information along with the pricing.
