In 1875, two young men living in the heart of the prestige watch-making world, Vallée de Joux, joined forces to launch Audemars, Piguet et Cie. These men, Jules-Louis Audemars, 23, and Edward-Auguste Piguet, 21, both grew up in Le Brassus and knew that the field of watch-making would be their future; although it took until 1882 to register their trademark, Audemars Piguet, and another seven years before the company would be officially founded in southwestern Switzerland.
Their business was organized so that Audemars would produce the component parts for the watch movements and Piguet would make the final regulation of the timepiece. And to this day at least one member of the Audemars and Piguet families sit on the board of directors of Audemars Piguet and either directly or indirectly run the company.
Through their imagination, discipline and determination, they built a highly successful and noteworthy timepiece company that produced some of the most complex pocket-watches of their day.
Audemars Piguet was known widely for the complexity of their watches, including the world’s first minute repeater wristwatch and the smallest five-minute repeater ever available to the public. In 1925, the company unveiled the world’s thinnest pocket watch, at 1.32 millimeters, and followed that with creating a skeleton watch, which had all its moving parts visible through the front or back of the watch.
