Great minds think alike they say. Audemars Piguet was started by 2 people in their twenties back in 1874. Like any other business, they have their ups and downs. Audemars Piguet watches as a company suffered a lot in the beginning. Between 1894 and 1899 Audemars Piguet made about 1,200 timepieces. By 1918 and 1919 is when the company starting growing and becoming more famous. That is because these 2 years the Audemars and Piguet passed away. At this time Tiffany & Co., Cartier and Bulgari were their biggest customers. Later on their biggest comeback was during World War II when they built and marketed the thinest chronograph watches available on the market. By the 1950s is when Audemars Piguet grew as a well known watch company. And since 1972 the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch model has been about. Today Audemars Piguet are one of the 3 top swiss watch makers along with Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin!
