Audemars Piguet Manufacture

01

When, where, and by whom was Audemars Piguet established?

In 1875, Jules Louis Audemars decided to join forces with Edward Auguste Piguet, in order to develop and craft timepieces equipped with complex mechanisms. Audemars Piguet was born. They established their workshops in Le Brassus, in Switzerland’s Vallée de Joux, the cradle of fine watchmaking.

To whom does Audemars Piguet belong?

Today, Audemars Piguet remains the oldest private fine watchmaking 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 unique vision.

Where are Audemars Piguet timepieces and movements manufactured?

Founded in 1875 in the village of Le Brassus, at the heart of the historical haven of complicated horology named the Vallée de Joux, Audemars Piguet distinguished itself in creating Grande Complication watches without interruption until present date. Since the beginning, the Manufacture has always taken pride in crafting the majority of its timepieces in Le Brassus. In more recent years, Audemars Piguet has acquired two more production sites, one specialising in the development of complex mechanisms in Le Locle named, Audemars Piguet Renaud et Papi, (APRP) and a case-making company based in Meyrin-Geneva named, Centror.

The hand-crafted strap demands a rare manufacturing skill. Most of our contemporary straps are stitched by hand. Each one is approved by our Quality Department following high criteria.
