Audemars Piguet is a Swiss watch manufacturer that was founded in 1875 by Jules-Louis Audemars and Edward-Auguste Piguet. It is regarded as one of the most high–end producers of luxury watches today.
The creation of Audemars Piguet (AP) was the product of a friendship between Audemars and Piguet, two young watchmakers living in the same Swiss mountain town of Le Brassus. Both men came from watch making families, and they enjoyed early local success with their products. In large part because of their authentic watch making backgrounds, early Audemars Piguet watches were able to craft pieces that appealed to the tastes of the time. It was not long before all of Europe’s most respected classes sought an Audemars Piguet for their collection. To this day, the Audemars Piguet watch is defined by three characteristics: a complex mechanistic structure, subtle innovations in timekeeping, and a timeless elegance.
Audemars Piguet is a brand that is synonymous with innovation in watchmaking technique. Of particular interest for today’s market is the introduction, in 1934, of the skeleton watch model. Skeleton watches make visible the interior mechanisms of the watch beneath the dial. They have been a popular model of watch with tourbillon watches since they enter the market. Today, Audemars Piguet makes a variety of different collections, most of which are available at ECJ Luxe.
