Audemars Piguet was established in 1875 by Jules-Louis Audemars and Edward-Auguste Piguet, and stands today as one of the greatest names in Swiss watchmaking. With universal icons such as the AP Royal Oak, designed by the immortal Gerald Genta, and the AP Royal Oak Offshore, which later stemmed from Genta’s original design, the brand is also known today for groundbreaking advancements in watchmaking under their Concepts collection.
Audemars Piguet’s home is in the heart of the vallée de Joux, Le Brassus, where it continues to push boundaries in terms of design, materials and modern-day watchmaking know-how. But more than their watchmaking excellence, what AP possesses today that few other brands have managed, is cultural relevance in the 21st century.
