Probably this will be one of the lightest watches you’ll ever have the chance to have in your hands. Because Audemars Piguet has been able to amazed the world of horology with this Millenary Carbon One with tourbillon and chronograph. Carbon is Audemar’s trademark and after obtaining excellent results with the Alinghi model, decided to overcome itself with the creation of a model with case and movement both made of forged carbon. The result is simply amazing in terms of aesthetic quality and innovations. The unusual oval shape of the case is dictated by the manual caliber 2884 it equips, an oval hand-wound movement entirely developed and crafted by AP, a complex movement with the always fascinating tourbillon complication. The full black forged carbon case has a fixed ceramic bezel, crown and chronograph pushers. The dial is skeletonize and allows to carefully observe and appreciate the way this magnificent timepiece works when set into position; the 24 hour power reserve indication is positioned on the left of the dial and the red of its color recalls the one of the original linear chronograph minute counter at 12 o’clock. The case back is also skeletonized from where is possible to see the way everything works. Sold with the original rubber strap with AP deployant and original documents, this exotic and super cool watch is part of a limited edition composed of only 120 pieces.
