The tempo for the audemars piguet millenary quincy jones limited edition watch replica is set by Calibre 3120, a mechanical selfwinding movement entirely designed, developed and crafted by Manufacture Auduemars Piguet. Distinguished by its extreme reliability, this sophisticated mechanism is the object of constant improvements. Its cross-through balance bridge ensures enhanced shock resistance while a direct-drive seconds hand avoids any jerking. The adjustment remains stable thanks to a variable-inertia balance fitted with eight inertia-blocks, which also ensures significant long-term constancy of rate. This proprietary calibre now gives its beat to the entire range of collections, from the classic watches to the sporty models, as well as the contemporary timepieces.
The audemars piguet millenary replica dial radiates refinement and sophistication, and although black might not be regarded as a colour, its subtly shaded nuances certainly create striking contrasts that boldly lead the dance on the watch. The minute circle surrounding the hours vividly evokes piano keys, and one can almost imagine that they are about to spring to life under nimble fingers playing a lively tune.The dial features the off-centred hour zone that connoisseurs will recognise as one of the distinctive characteristics of the , surrounded on this model by a light fillet motif. Against a shiny black background, white gold Roman numerals in steadily larger sizes fill the dial, much like music fills the night hours in a New York jazz club.
Calibre 3120 is particularly user-friendly thanks to its instant-jump, fast-adjusting date display, as well as its 60-hour power reserve. The bridges are meticulously chamfered and polished so as to show only clean-cut, shining edges. Even the rim and slots of the screws are chamfered. Accurate time- setting is facilitated by the fact that pulling out the crown instantly activates the stop seconds lever which – as its name implies – brings the seconds hand to an immediate halt. Finally, the monobloc oscillating weight in 22-carat gold bears the audemars piguet replica crests and the AP monogram. Nonetheless, the crowning glory of Calibre 3120 is the care devoted to its craftsmanship. Both sides of the mainplate are circular-grained and the bridges are adorned with Côtes de Genève. The jewel sinks are diamond-polished, while the wheels feature chamfered arms and diamond-polished sinks. Hand-assembled in the Le Brassus workshops, it boasts exceptional quality of execution and exquisite finishing.
