New Styles Complete The Collection
Inspired by design, architecture, and contemporary art, the Millenary Collection was conceived with great attention to detail.
The Millenary Collection was recently completed with a new series of straps that allows women to go for a new look. New styles, new textures, new motifs, and infinite interchangeable colors: the Audemars Piguet feminine watches not only reflect an evolution in terms of lifestyle, but also the personalities of those who wear them.
One of the new styles in this collection has an opal dial. This is the first time that this beautiful stone has been used in the Millenary timepieces. The watch also features the Florentine hammering technique, which provides a scintillating effect, similar to that of precious stones or diamond dust.
Key points: Oval case, off-center dial, and the tri-dimensional architecture of the Millenary styles are a fusion of contemporary design and exceptional mechanics.
Plus: The new mesh bracelet transforms the watch, giving it a vintage look that goes perfectly with the oval shape of the case the Roman numerals that decorate the face. This “Polish” mesh makes the strap even more comfortable, with the feel of a second skin.
Price: 47 700 €
Characteristics: Manual rewinding with the 5201 caliber manufacture, 4.16 mm thickness, 49-hour reserve power, Case in pink 18K gold, Glare-proof crystal and case back, Bezel and lugs set with diamonds, Crown set with a pink cabochon sapphire, Waterproof to 20 meters, White opal off-center disc and small-seconds counter, Pink gold hands, Roman numerals in anthracite gray, Bracelet in 18K pink gold with folding clasp.

A Sophisticated, Private Service
Ermenegildo Zegna has inaugurated its made-to-measure atelier right in the heart of Milan, providing a bespoke tailoring service for the luxury fashion house. This atelier is a unique place, a concept inspired by the idea of elegance: intimate and designed with a distinctly Milanese touch.
A special rendezvous for men who are invested in good taste and have the means to fill their closets in keeping with their lifestyle, their desires, and their needs. This service provides a complete made-to-measure wardrobe: from tailored suits and shirts to sportswear, by way of leather pieces, knitwear, and shoes, based on the client’s preferences. Each client has complete latitude to bring personal modifications to the characteristics of each item, as so desired.
Every garment is made at the atelier, by hand, and with a passion for work well done. Lightness, attention to detail, extensibility, and suppleness are the key words that define the fabrication of these works of art, where savoir-faire and workmanship go hand-in-hand.
Each made-to-measure garment is created by and for the client. A bespoke suit requires 200 steps, during which time 150 pieces are assembled, representing as many as 75 hours of work.
Key points: This new atelier offers an exclusive made-to-measure service elevated to the highest level of luxury. Impeccable cut and confection are guaranteed, with an expression of the very best in artisanal savoir-faire and a touch of modernity for such classic items of clothing.
Plus: The atelier evokes iconic references from the 1950s, the golden age of the city that recalls refinement and timelessness, and is accented with tributes to the architects that fashioned the public and private identity of modern Milan: Giò Ponti, Alberto Portaluppi, and Luigi Caccia Dominioni.
