Audemars Piguet is the oldest fine watch-making manufacturer never to have left the hands of its founding families. This gives the company a rare independence that allows it to pave a path unique to its vision and storied history. Within the Manufacture, exceptional watches are born every day at the hands of virtuoso watchmakers who will make every effort to remain pioneers in watchmaking for many years to come. Over the years, Audemars Piguet timepieces have evolved to represent unique reinterpretations of traditional complications, imbued with technological innovations, such as the Audemars Piguet escapement. Each watch demands rare ancestral skills that Audemars Piguet is determined to keep alive, by passing them on to younger generations.
