Audemars Piguet Millenary Starwheel: When Audemars Piguet plays the card of Independents.

THAT Starwheel could have been the creation of an Independent! 

I don' know the story behind the Starwheel, but the outcome is pure madness. 



I had the pleasure to see it live during my last trip in Hong Kong, due to the kindness of its owner, our dear Semper Fidelis, and it is an experience stuck in my mind forever. 

Probably my favorite Audemars Piguet. I would love to see it in the case of the all new 11.59! 

Best,

Nicolas


Spectacular!

You are right, it would be da bomb in the new case.

I had the pleasure to see a few different AP starwheels last year .

Like you said maybe this Millenary is one of my fav from the brand .

I couldn't see the other Starwheels in the metal, but I think it won't change my preference.... Thanks, mon ami. [nt]

Ver poetic

This one is clearly a top production from Audemars.
The first engraved iteration in gold was a bit baroque but the millenary case and the plain blue dial + steel transformed it!

The stars from the movement match the stars on the dial - a rare design touch

Look at this starwheel....or the floating hour complication

Guess who was at the helm of AP designs then, and who is the founder of the upstart independent brand?

Yes, the first version is a bit baroque. I prefer the modernity of the Millenary version. +1! [nt]

That is a great idea, Nicolas. I hope AP is reading it!

The watch would be even more at home in the CODE case.

I do think so! [nt]

Bit like a prototype

Yes, somehow... Thanks, George. [nt]

I've seen a bunch over the last few years, all at various auctions.

The Millenary was my favourite as it is the most contemporary of the AP Starwheels.  

I should pay more attention to these auctions... Thanks, Jay. [nt]

I always liked the Starwheel...

it would be something if AP decides to reboot it inside the code 11.59 case. At least it would be more interesting for me than the existing dials 😉

W'll soon discuss that, but AP would have simplified their launch with the unveiling of the Starwheel in the 11.59 case. Definitely. [nt]

“Underrated” at best...

 
 By: Semper Fidelis : February 14th, 2019-07:26
...but you sure have an eye for the exceptional things my Friend!
What an unforgettable two days in HKG we had... and then Paris 😉
You can borrow it anytime your in Singapore!
All the best -

To be lived again! Here, or there. [nt]

Why did they not introduce a new Starwheel?

 
 By: JerryW : February 15th, 2019-20:05
I am really confused by AP these days.

Wish they'll make it. It would be a killer... [nt]
