Répétition Minutes Millenary

122 years ago, in 1892 to be precise, Audemars Piguet designed its first wristwatch with minute repeater in its Le Brassus factory in the Vallée de Joux. This complication was very popular at the time because it told the time in the dark when electricity was in its infancy. The 2014 version showcases a three-dimensional openwork dial displaying Roman hour and minute numerals and Arabic seconds on white enamel discs rimmed with gold which seem to float. The oversize (47x42mm) oval case is in rose gold. It has a sliding trigger on the left side (at 9 o’ clock) and houses an in-house manual wind 2928 calibre which not only provides the time and minute repeater functions but also the 165-hour power reserve. Price: 476,300 CHF
