Founded in the year 1875, in the very small mountain town of Le Brassus, which is situated in the heart of the Vallee de Joux, the Audemars Piguet watch label has truly come a long way from its small beginnings. At that time, this particular region was recognized for the highlands, which were perfect for farming.
However, throughout the hard winter months, the ground land remained dormant & the villagers living there turned to watchmaking as a primary source of income, which was only possible because of the iron oxide found in these fertile grounds.
However, Jules Louis Audemars & Edward Auguste Piguet founded the brand synonymous with wealth & luxury. Today, AP is still independently controlled & managed by the family arms of the founders.
