The atypical Millenary returns this year, to the delight of women who – like the brand from le Brassus – love to flaunt their independence and their strength of character. An authentic exercise in horological style, with its complex openworked caliber placing its balance wheel front and center, instead of relegating it to the back as on models from other brands, this oval-cased timepiece boldly combines white and pink gold, mother-of-pearl, diamonds and steel. Striking an elegant balance between traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design, Caliber 5201 is hand-wound, a fairly unusual option for a ladies’ watch movement. As of this fall, women will be able to “own” their Millenary even more intimately by adapting it to various facets of their personality with a choice of new straps – alligator leather, rubber, fabric or velvet-finished – available in a broad range of colors and designed for optimal comfort on the wrist. Dare to be a non-conformist and assert your own style by wearing your white or pink gold Millenary on a purple, pink or bright green strap !
