Millenary Carbon One Tourbillon Chronograph

The Millenary Carbon One has emerged straight from Audemars Piguet's cutting-edge research laboratory. This special development unit combines the finest talents – engineers, designers and watchmakers – from both of the company's production sites in Le Brassus and Le Locle. Its mission consists in exploring advanced technical paths in order to ensure 100% in-house conception, prototype creation and production of exclusive movements that are a perfect match for their exterior. The Millenary Carbon One, a limited series of 120 watches, has just emerged from this hotbed of creativity. It is freely inspired by motor sports and their extraordinary ultra-light high-performance speed machines, while adopting the oval shape of the Millenary as a spectacular playground. Its key strengths include a three-dimensional design, innovative materials, and a 100% proprietary movement equipped with a tourbillon, a chronograph and a 10-day power reserve.

Distinctive features

The Millenary Carbon One case is based on the 26069. The all-of-a-piece lugs and middle-case are made of forged carbon. The bezel is made of black ceramic and the sapphire crystal is slightly convex.

The crown and the chronograph pushpieces are made of black ceramics. The crown is equipped with a torque limitation system avoiding any significant mechanical stress during the movement rewinding process.

The openworked dial is made of several parts. Its contemporary cut-outs are an invitation to discover the very heart of the movement. The luminescent hands are blackened.

The hand-wound twin-barrel Calibre 2884 guarantees an exceptional 10-day power reserve. An ingenious blocking system concentrates the watch operation on the ten days with the most regular running, thus ensuring optimum efficiency. This calibre combines a tourbillon and a power-reserve display with a high-performance column-wheel chronograph mechanism. It features high-end contemporary finishing fully in line with the watch technical nature. The main plate is made of carbon, the bridges on the dial side are made of blackened steel and the bridges on the caseback side are made of anodized aluminium.
