Audemars Piguet

Audemars Piguet manufactures quality swiss watches along with Patek Philippe, Jaeger-LeCoultre, and Vacheron Constantin. Audemars Piguet began as a partnership between Jules-Louis Audemars (1851-1918), who handled the management of the company and Edward-Auguste Piguet (1853-1919), who controlled sales and marketing aspects.. The company opened its first branch in Geneva in 1889, and began creating its own components and assembling within its factory with direct supervision and strict quality control. As the success of the company’s business was rising its customers became Tiffany & Co, Cartier and Bulgari who rebranded and sold Audemars Piguet watches under their own house names. Today these watches are only identifiable as Audemars Piguet products by their serial numbers.

During World War II the manufacturer was able to come back on the market by producing one of its well-known models an ultra-thinchronograph, the heart of which was Calibre 2003. The sales of Audemars Piguet started growing in the forties and fifties. Together with Jaeger-LeCoultre it designed the thinnest automatic movement. The latter included a 21 carat gold rotor placed in the center. Their “Royal Oak”, was produced in 1972 and is considered to have created the market for the stainless steel luxury watch which was designed by Gerald Genta. Today the company, along with Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin, is sometimes claimed to be one of the top three Swiss watchmakers. Every timepiece manufactured in-house is still made using the old-fashioned hand-made technique. The manufacture Audemars Piguet produces 26,000 timepieces per year. Popular offerings from this brand are: Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore.
