Audemars Piguet watches date back all the way to 1874. It’s been reported that 23-year-old Jules Louis Audemars met Edward Auguste Piguet at Vallee de Joux. Both men were born in Le Brassus, graduated from school and relocated to Vallee de Joux to start working together in watch manufacturing.
“Thus Audemars started producing component parts for movements and Piguet got the job of a repasseur, maker of the final regulation of the timepiece. In 1875, they founded a firm later known as Audemars, Piguet et Cie.”
Since 1882, members of both families have always been running the company, either directly or indirectly.
Audemars Piguet has produced a number of special edition watches based on famous public figures, athletes, and celebrities including Jay-Z, Shaquille O’Neal, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and brand ambassadors include LeBron James and Michelle Yeoh.
Today, Audemars Piguet consists of 1,100 employees with 14 distribution subsidiaries and 16 boutiques located worldwide. The company handcrafts 26,000 timepieces per year.
Offering a number of collections for sale and resale, the timepieces truly encompass exquisite fashion statements, luxurious hand-made technology and top of the line materials and practices. Considered one of the “big three” in luxury Swiss watchmaking, Audemars Piguet guarantees a transformingly fashionable and well-built timepiece with every collection.
