The Millenary Manual Winding Movement with AP Escapement and "Deadbeat
Seconds" (or "Jump Seconds)- a remarkable achievement for a
mechanical wrist watch.
This watch features:
* Silvered textured guilloche dial.
* Blued applied Roman numeral hour markers.
* Blued skeleton hands.
* Small seconds sub-dial at the 7 o'clock. This small seconds hand features the
"Dead Seconds" complication.
- The Dead Seconds Complication: With regular mechanical watch the beats per
hour (vph) interpret into the frequency the seconds hand advances - giving the
seconds hand the perception of smooth motion AKA "the sweep seconds
hand". With the dead seconds complication the seconds hand jump every
second (much like a quartz watch). This complication is achieved through am additional
going-train driven by a second barrel. AP devised a system with two
superimposed seconds-wheels driven by a "differential", one is free
and moves steadily forward at the rate of the VPH, while the other carries
wolf's teeth and moves in jerks – hence the jumping seconds.
* The new AP High Efficiency Direct-Impulse Escapement is proudly displayed on
the dial side of the watch. The benefits of this new escapement are
- No need for lubrication on the pallet-stones.
- Detached single-beat escapement: A single impulse corresponds to two
vibrations, thus decreasing disturbance to the rate and promoting extremely
- Direct impulse on the balance: The energy is transmitted directly from the
escapement to the balance instead of via the lever, thereby reducing energy
losses and increasing efficiency.
- High efficiency: In a movement equipped with a Swiss lever escapement, the
latter absorbs 70% of the energy. The system developed by Audemars Piguet
absorbs only 50%, representing a considerable gain in efficiency compared to a
- Excellent shock-resistance: The meticulously developed shape of the various
parts (especially the guard-pin) and their ultra precise machining guarantee
optimal security against "tripping" and "over banking".
- Long-term stability: The tests conducted over the past five years have shown
that this escapement displays excellent operational stability.
- Improved accuracy/chronometry: the isochronism of the sprung balance may be
adjusted by shifting the locking-point in relation to the impulse provided by
the balance; a reduction in mechanical disturbances to the balance improves the
overall precision of the movement.
* AP Caliber 2905, beats at 21,600 vph, contains 31 jewels, composed of 233 components
& has an Power Reserve of 7 days. All parts decorated by hand beveled,
rhodium-plated and decorated with Cotes de Geneva finish.
