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 considerable: *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 high efficiency. *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 classic movement. - 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.
