Audemars Piguet Revs Up Millenary

  • Laurie Kahle

Audemars Piguet’s Millenary has taken many guises over the years, but the new Millenary Carbon One ($268,100) may be the edgiest yet. Furthering the brand’s emphasis on three-dimensional design, the Carbon One blurs the boundaries between interior and exterior, revealing the layered mechanisms through the cutaway dial. Outfitted in black on black, the Millenary Carbon One not only looks high-tech, it utilizes high-tech materials, such as a special isotropic carbon composed of nano fibers that are injected under extreme pressure and heat to achieve unprecedented stability for the main plate. Meanwhile, the ultralight and robust case is formed by the brand’s proprietary forged carbon. The hand-wound Calibre 2884 combines a tourbillon with a column-wheel chronograph and twin barrels. Limited to 120 pieces, the Millenary Carbon One is available at Audemars Piguet’s new U.S. flagship located at 65 East 57th Street in Manhattan. (888.214.6858, www.audemars-piguet.com)
