First launched in 2015, the Millenary from Audemars Piguet defined its dedication to female horology and became an instant asset to any avid collector. For 2018, and showcased at this year’s SIHH in Geneva, two new Millenary models come in white gold and pink gold with mother-of- pearl dials and diamond-set bezel and lugs. The innovative feature: matching, Polish woven gold bracelets which offers the strap a more dynamic, supple and sophisticated look and feel.

Both the original Milanese and the new Polish mesh bracelets are made from long, gold-wire ‘springs’ that are woven together to achieve a chainmail effect. But with the new and more complex Polish style, the wires are fitted in opposing directions giving an arguably more interesting finish than the traditional Milanese.
