The Art of Complex Watches

From its foundation in 1875 to the present day, Audemars Piguet's exceptional timepieces have contributed in no small measure to the prestige of luxury watchmaking. From the simplest to the most intricate, the company's watch calibres continue to establish world firsts.

Its corporate philosophy both perpetuates and builds on the irreplaceable expertise accumulated for over two centuries by the master watchmakers of the Vallée de Joux .

The oldest watch manufacturer still owned and operated by its founding families, Audemars Piguet has always sought to combine inspired inventiveness with its keen sense of tradition.

Chronographs , tourbillon regulators, chiming repeaters, time-zone displays, the Star Wheel mechanism, the equation of time and the sun's race through the heavens , a large-date calendar , power-reserve and moon-phase indicators, annual and perpetual calendars , intricate Grande Complication designs - all reveal some of their mystery...

Thanks to its unrivalled mastery of every horological complexity, only Audemars Piguet can today make and sell all twelve of these complex timepieces.
