Constant innovation and avant garde design have solidified Audemars Piguet beacon of fine Swiss watchmaking since its formal inception in 1881. AP’s product line offers a wide array of complications for the discerning haute horlogery enthusiast, including chronographs, perpetual calendars, flying tourbillons, minute repeaters, and more.
In 1972, AP turned the watch industry upside down with its release of the often controversial Royal Oak, the first luxury sports watch of its kind. Since then, Audemars Piguet has launched many successful and highly coveted timepieces like the Royal Oak Offshore, the Royal Oak Concept, and a variety of limited edition designs for noteworthy individuals like Michael Schumacher, LeBron James, Loe Messi, Rubens Barrichello, Jay-Z, and more.
Ever since Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Piguet formed a partnership in 1875 to manufacture luxury watch movements that were sold to such style icons as Tiffany & Co., the duo strived to make the best men’s and women’s watches in the world. When the pair formed their own brand, Audemars Piguet & Cie, in 1881, they used the knowledge they had gained to innovate in the field of watchmaking, developing the first minute-repeating movement, the first skeleton watch, and even the world’s thinnest watch, measuring in at just 1.64 millimeters thick. With so many innovations coming from one firm, it’s easy to see why the rich and famous have flocked to the brand, with such luminaries as Lebron James, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Harry Styles all sporting Audemars Piguet watches.
Today’s Audemars Piguet watches are the pinnacle of men’s and women’s style. They created quite a stir in 1972 when they introduced the Audemars Royal Oak Offshore, the first luxury sports watch of its kind. While the Royal Oak was considered quite controversial at first, watch enthusiasts really went wild for this design, and today all the best luxury brands are producing men’s and ladies watches in this same sporty style.
Since then, the innovative designs of Audemars Piguet watches have cemented the firm as one of the best men’s and ladies watch designers on the planet. Many models feature a distinctive octagonal bezel that’s unique to the brand and can be found embellished with exotic metal accents or diamonds for the ultimate display of style. They’re also known for incorporating elaborate complications, like the Audemars Piguet Tourbillon movement featured in the Royal Oak collection, among others.
