Generally, Audemars Piguet Millenary Quadriennium Rose Gold Watch Replica needs to adjust most date watches on the 30th or 31st of every month. The annual calendar complication takes care of that problem by requiring adjustment once a year at the end of February. For those of us who can’t be bothered to set the date once a year, we reach for the perpetual calendar complication, which does not require adjustment for at least a century. The Quadriennium, with its quadriannual calendar, comes in between the annual and perpetual calendar complications. It needs adjustment only in leap years (once every four years).
Audemars Piguet Millenary Replica collection has its share of eye-catching pieces. The diverse lineup includes a minute repeater, a tourbillon chronograph and even a time-only automatic with over 300 diamonds. The line exudes haute craftsmanship, regardless of the piece in question, and the addition of the Millenary Quadriennium is no exception.
The Quadriennium is housed in an oval-shaped 18k pink-gold case measuring 47 mm in width by 42 mm in height. In terms of aesthetics, sculpted lugs and a raised bezel add visual dimension – there’s no doubt that this watch will command a presence on the wrist.
The round enamel dial is positioned off-center at 3 o’clock and boasts elongated Roman numerals, a centered circular date scale, and skeleton-lanced hands. A small seconds dial cuts into the main hour dial elegantly between 7 and 8 o’clock. At the far left of the case, the balance wheel and expertly-finished bridge are exposed. Overall, these design cues somewhat echo mechanical surrealism but work well with one another.
The hand-wound manufacture caliber 2905/B01, which beats at 3 Hz for 168 hours, is over 9 mm thick and adds considerable visual depth to the front of the watch (as it is partially exposed). That’s a good thing, because the rear of the movement, visible through a sapphire-crystal case back, is very contained and cleanly showcased.
The baseplate is decorated with Côtes de Genève, while sunburst guilloché adorns the large wheels. Apart from the double-barrel construction, there’s a lot of other technology here, including audemars piguet replica watches famous escapement, which, apart from having a skeletonized escape wheel, is impervious to shocks. It employs a double-hairspring in order to offset failure poising (balancing the balance). AP also claims that this configuration of components results in tourbillon-like precision
