Audemars Piguet is widely seen as an institution in the watch world. Representing technical prowess, style and innovation, the brand, formed in 1875 by Swiss craftsmen Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet in the village of Le Brassus. Since its inception, Audemars Piguet has pioneered many watchmaking innovations, including the world’s first minute-repeating movement for wristwatches in 1892. The first ‘jumping hour’ watch followed in 1921, and they also developed the first skeleton watch in 1934. Audemars Piguet has produced some of the thinnest watches in the world, notably the 1986 automatic tourbillon wristwatch.
If watchmaking has an equivalent of Lennon and McCartney, it may be Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet. The Bucherer Magazine
