Founded in 1875 by Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet in the Swiss village of Le Brassus, Audemars Piguet is the oldest Manufacture of Haute Horlogerie never to have left the hands of the founding families. Today, its range encompasses complex mechanical watches, Haute Joaillerie creations as well as a line of jewellery. At each stage in its history, the Manufacture has daringly adopted avant-garde techniques in order to place them in the service of traditional craftsmanship. This approach has earned it an unparalleled number of world firsts in the field of Haute Horlogerie.

Produced one at a time, by the very best master watchmakers, these marvels of miniaturization and precision taken to extremes are like so many kinetic sculptures, designed to challenge time itself.
As with every major art, the watchmakers at the Audemars Piguet manufacture had to master all the classic rules of their craft before being able to reinterpret them in a way that conforms to contemporary tastes. Their skilled hands gave birth to the various incarnations of an instrument for telling the time graced with Grande Complications – the Royal Oak – which now in its 40th anniversary year.
