It is in the heart of the vallée de Joux, a region that beats to the tune of complicated watch mechanisms, that everything started for Audemars Piguet in 1875.

Audemars Piguet entered the annals of horological history in 1972, when it overturned all prevailing codes with the Royal Oak, a timepiece beyond compare. Its selfwinding movement with a central rotor is the thinnest in the world, while the piece boasts an octagonal bezel held by eight hexagonal screws, a dial adorned with a “Tapisserie” guilloché or engine-turned pattern, and a bracelet perfectly integrated into the case.

Over the last two centuries the manufacture has been crafting timepieces with the AUDEMARS PIGUET woman in mind. A strong independent and self assured woman whose social status and position in society has evolved throughout the years.Sophisticated complications such as the LANGE 1 TOURBILLON PERPETUAL CALEDAR, the ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER or the TOURBOGRAPH PERPETUAL “Pour le Mérite” reflect the manufactory’s determination to achieve ever-new pinnacles in horological artistry.
