Learn more about the legacy of Audemars Piguet


The history of Audemars Piguet begins in 1875 in Le Brassus, heart of the Vallée de Joux, the cradle of high-end Swiss watchmaking. The company was founded by Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet.

Audemars Piguet embodies the very foundations of watchmaking combining technical skills and excellence. The love for detail is carried to the last consequences and the artistic sense is blown into each watch to make it an exceptional and unique work of art. These foundations rest on an exceptional expertise that dates back to yesteryear and has been transmitted with care in the Audemars Piguet workbenches since 1875 and throughout several generations of watchmakers.

Amazing mechanisms, chronographs and astronomical complications constitute the domains of Audemars Piguet.

Before 1951 when the concept of model was introduced, each watch was unique. Today, Audemars Piguet remains firmly attached to the production of very small series, made with the greatest care and demonstrating the utmost respect for watchmaking traditions.

The history of Audemars Piguet

Audemars Piguet’s famous slogan is “To break the rules, you must first master them” - and it adjusts the brand to perfection.

Audemars Piguet is among the most prestigious luxury watch manufacturers in the world. Famous for pioneering avant-garde complicated watches, Audemars Piguet is best known for its Royal Oak sports watch. The Royal Oak, rightfully celebrated as a true icon in watchmaking, spearheaded the very concept of the luxury sports watch.

The company also boasts a long history of landmark achievements in astronomical complications, ultra-fine movements, skeletonization, and chiming timepieces.

Over more than 140 years, four generations of the Audemars and Piguet families have continually led the brand to success. Indeed, Audemars Piguet is the very last independent Swiss watch brand that’s still run by the families who founded it. Their singular passion, expertise, innovative spirit, and pride in the watchmaking traditions of Switzerland’s Vallée de Joux remain strong.

Audemars Piguet produces approximately 31.000 watches a year, which is extremely low for the luxury watch industry. Why do they do this? Owning an Audemars Piguet allows you to join a very exclusive club and become “part of the family”.

That is why having an Audemars Piguet in our personal collection is more than a valuable membership: it's a privilege.

The Royal Oak is considered the most popular watch that Audemars Piguet currently manufactures. It was first presented at the Baselworld in 1972 and is considered the world’s first luxury sports watch made of stainless steel. Produced amid significant pressures in the watch industry that debated between quarz and mechanical movements, the Royal Oak bet for traditional watchmaking fitted into a design never seen before. With lines and edges that seemed to come from somewhere in the future, the Royal Oak aesthetics remain practically intact and yet keeps fascinating every new generation of watch enthusiasts.
