À propos

Founded in 1875 by Jules-Louis Audemars and Edward-Auguste Piguet, the manufacturing headquarters of Audemars Piguet are nestled in the Joux Valley in Switzerland. For more than a century, this prestigious company has held a unique position in the world of high quality watch making: its expertise, creativity, and state-of-the-art technology are behind Audemars Piguet's luxurious and innovative watches.
At the turn of the twentieth century, the factory employed more than seventy craftsmen, whose mastery and excellent grasp of the changing times not only enabled the development of traditional pieces, but also the production of revolutionary watches, both of the highest quality. These include the slimline jeweled watches for women in the Art Deco era, chronographs in the Forties, the first perpetual calendar watch in 1957, the famous Royal Oak-the first high-end sports watch-in 1972, and the ultra-modern Millenary MC12 in 2008.
Audemars Piguet's artisans have painstakingly crafted countless masterpieces for over 130 years.
