The Millenary Quincy Jones Watch

in Basel 2010 | Saturday, February 20. 2010

Audemars Piguet has created a brand new watch to add its Millenary collection, this one created as a tribute to Quincy Jones. Audemars Piquet has explained that their decision to use Jones as the inspiration for the watch was aimed at raising awareness among politicians as well as people in general regarding young people’s need for self-expression and the means to help them fulfill their potential. Beginning his career as a trumpet player, Jones was quick to expand his resume by also becoming an arranger, musical director and producer. He has worked with some of our most beloved artists, such as Frank Sinatra, Barbara Streisand and Tony Bennett. His now 5 decade career has had numerous unbelievable high-lights from his movie soundtracks, to his work producing for Michael Jackson, and his work with The Quincy Jones Foundation, an organization committed to helping children.

The Quincy Jones Millenary watch has the distinctive oval case of the collection and measures 45 by 40 mm. This model has been crafted in blackened steel using both matt and highly polished textures with a combination of vertical and horizontal satin-brushed finishes the brand has created a truly stunning case. The case-back is polished and features Quincy Jones’ signature with the inscription “Millenary Quincy Jones – Limited Edition”. The shiny black dial has the trademark off-centered hour zone surrounded on by a fillet motif with white gold Roman numerals. Powered by the in-house mechanical self-winding movement Calibre 3120. The movement has several wonderful features, such as its instant-jump, fast-adjusting date display, and 60-hour power reserve. The watch is completed by a black leather strap with an AP folding clasp in blackened steel. The Millenary Quincy Jones watch is reference 15161SN.OO.D002CR.01 and will be produced to only 500 pieces.
