Founded in 1875 by Jules-Louis Audemars and Edward-Auguste Piguet, the still family-owned Audemars Piguet has grown to become one of the most highly regarded watch manufacturers in the world. The company pioneered many firsts in the world of horology, including the world's first, minute repeater in 1882, the first skeleton watch in 1934 and, what was then, the world's thinnest wristwatch in 1986.
But it is the Royal Oak for which the brand is most famous. This masterpiece of design and craftsmanship was developed by renowned watch designer Gerald Genta and presented to the public in 1972. The Royal Oak is considered one of the most notable timepieces in the world and pioneered a whole new market segment of luxury sports watches with metal bracelets.
Audemars Piguet watches have been worn on the wrists of many presidents, prime ministers and princesses. The brand also has many celebrity brand ambassadors including Serena Williams, Rory Mcllroy and Lebron James to name but a few. Take a look at the Audemars Piguet collection bellow and enjoy the craftsmanship and quality of some of the world's finest wristwatches.
