Audemars Piguet is the oldest watchmaking and manufacturing company, and was founded in 1875 by two great friends Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet
What is so special about the Audemars Piguet company? From the early beginning, they wanted to make excellent movements that were definitely too early for their time. They were the first company to produce a minute repeater.
Today everyone knows that the most popular model is the Royal Oak. The story is interesting because the Royal Oak was actually designed by Gerald Genta for AP in a brilliant design. It was introduced in 1972 during the watch show. For the 1970’s a 39mm case was way too big, yet the watch received great praise and had lots of success. Even now, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is probably the most sought after watch in the world.
The company is still privately held and is run by the founding families.
Some of Audemars Piguet ambassadors are Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lebron James who represent the brand by having watches with their names.
Today the Audemars Piguet line up consist of the Royal Oak, Royal Oak Offshore, Jules Audemars, and the Royal Oak Ladies watches.
