Audemars Piguet constantly reinventing the watch
Since its creation in 1875 in the village of Le Brassus, watch manufacturer Audemars Piguet has gone on to gain an international reputation. Its turnover has taken off over the past 30 years.
Audemars Piguet was born in the heart of the Joux Valley, in an area already well known for its expertise in complex mechanisms. "At the end of the 19th century, an industrial revolution came about in the field of watch manufacture in the USA, and watches were suddenly being made in their hundreds of thousands," explains Olivier Audemars, great-grandson of the co-founder and current vice-president of the board of the firm.
