Since 1875, Audemars Piguet has perpetuated its founders’ ancestral savoir-faire in forward-thinking ways, consistently pushing further the limits of the craft and anticipating society’s ever-changing needs. This uncompromising blend of tradition and innovation is the backbone of the Manufacture’s craftsmanship.

Audemars Piguet has tirelessly explored new creative territories in terms of watchmaking techniques, complications, materials and breakthrough designs. Combining innovation with cutting-edge watchmaking technology, our timepieces play with the limits of material feasibility.

It all starts with an idea: a new shape, a play on perspective and dimensions, the perfect harmony of lines and curves that the designer sketches out, as he takes the first step in a long journey to turn pioneering concept into horological reality.

Audemars Piguet produces complex and refined watches, equally beautiful inside and out, finished and assembled by hand. Decoration techniques add the final touch, turning timepieces into true works of art.

Over the years, the company has nurtured generations of talented craftspeople who have continuously developed new skills and techniques, broadening their savoir-faire to set rule-breaking trends.
