You know that I have been economically deluded by the watch world when I hear that a watch costs around $35,000, only to think, “that sounds like a really good price.” Not that I can afford it, I just wouldn’t expect an 18k rose gold-cased Audemars Piguet Millenary History Replica watch with an in house chronograph movement to go for that “low” of a price. I must have luxo-fever. But for $35,000 you can’t go too wrong with this beautiful chronograph version of Audemars Piguet’s lovely Millenary watch. The sorta asymmetric is not off-centered as it might appear. Two oblong circles overlap to create that interesting look that Audemars Piguet perfected. Though, the chronograph version does actually have some off-centered dials.

The standard Millenary watch uses the two circles for the minute or the hours. This version uses the outer circle cleverly as a tachymeter. It is not the most elegant application of a tachymeter scale, but it works. The dial has everything in the right place, though it does come across as though it is a reflection out of a funhouse mirror looking a bit misshapen.

The case is in 18kt rose gold and measures 47mm x 42mm, pretty nicely sized! Inside, the mechanical movement is the automatic AP caliber 2385 with a power reserve of 40 hours (not exactly a stellar power reserve, but it is a chronograph movement). Sky blue is found throughout the dial as well as gold used for the out markers and the hands. It is a pretty bold little number, and a charming edition to something from Audemars Piguet that is not a Royal Oak watch. If you look on the rear of the watch, the branding reminds me too much of those fish you sometimes see attached to the back of people’s cars. I think you know what I mean.

The 4101, however, is your Millenary at its unadorned, which means that it is a chance to actually see how well the design stands on its own merits (and, naturally, to appraise how well the decisions made for this particular version jell to a gratifying view, or not).By the amounts, the model we got our hands pour les hommes is amazingly wide, at 47mm — I say “surprisingly” because it definitely doesn’t feel like a 47 millimeter watch. Thickness is 13 mm, and the movement indoors is your Audemars Piguet shaped automatic caliber 4101, which conveys a certain resemblance to the AP grade 3120 (from which I presume it derives). 1 notable difference between the two movements, however, is that in 4101 the movement’s been partly inverted: the equilibrium, pallet fork, and escape wheel are on the dial side (as they are from the women’s version Cara looked at) and this was done for a reason: to bring the balance closer to the plane of the dial and also make it component of the overall composition.That reason is part and parcel of the real raison d’être of this Millenary 4101, and that’s that it is a fairly sophisticated workout in design — an exploration of just how much could be carried out with the basic components of a time-only, self-winding watch. The 4101 is about harnessing the visual potential of the oval frame — something that actually sets the Millenary watches generally aside, not only from other Audemars Piguet watches, but from most other watches, period. The symmetry of this oval is divided by the placement of the principal dial however balanced — at an asymmetrical and therefore very energetic manner — by the positioning of the balance, and by the horizontality of the equilibrium bridge, which flows to the 3 screws to the mainplate, bottom and top.
