Made in Le Brassus

Our origins

It is in the heart of the Vallée de Joux, a region that beats to the tune of complicated watch mechanisms, that everything started for Audemars Piguet in 1875.

Our origins


Audemars Piguet is the only high-end watchmaking company still in the hands of its founding families. This sense of lineage and heritage has always been essential.


We have spent more than 140 years mastering the conception, construction and production of complications. As such, our entire philosophy revolves around these rare, precious and consistently unique creations. Here you'll discover how our mastery of complications has become the ultimate display of our Savoir-Faire.


Throughout the years, Audemars Piguet watchmakers have surpassed technical and theoretical boundaries to craft ever more demanding mechanisms. True artisans, they define and evolve Haute Horlogerie, mastering the rules only to break them.


“To break the rules, you must first master them.” Tradition and avant-garde are inextricably intertwined at Audemars Piguet.
