Audemars Piguet is not just a company. It’s still an independent family business established in and continually operating from Le Brassus, in the Vallee De Joux, the cradle of fine watchmaking.
In 1875 Jules Louis Audemars, decided to join forces with Edward Auguste Piguet, in order to develop and craft watches equipped with complex mechanisms. They shared a passion for watchmaking and a mastery of the art of precision that still characterizes the company today.
Today, Audemars Piguet is still the oldest fine watch-making manufacturer never to have left the hands of its founding families. This gives the company an independent streak that allows it to go its own way and follow its own unique vision.
The enduring strength of the firm lies on the six fundamental values established by the founders: Respect, Integrity, Exclusivity, Inspiration, Passion, and Sophistication. Together these values are perfected and revealed through the Savoir-Faire that is truly unique to Audemars Piguet.
