The History Behind Audemars Piguet Watches

The brand was established in 1875, in a quaint little town called Le Brassus, and since its humble start the brand has come a long way. The region in which Audemars Piguet formed its routs, had harsh winters and the land which was formally used for farming, played dormant. Villagers started creating watches as a source of income, made possible by the Iron Oxide found in the fertile grounds. Many of the town folk started to take on this profession, but it was Edward Auguste Piguet and Jues Louis Audemars who stood out to create the famous brand as we know it today. The Audemars Piguet brand is still owned independently by the family members of these two founders.
