Great watchmakers Edward Piguet and Jules Audemars, who have created Audemars Piguet brand, were called the masters of time, who were greatly ahead of their time. Most of the population of Vallee de Joux, a Swiss village, where the friends opened their business in 1875, was plying a watch trade. Nature did not provide the villagers with fertile soil, but it has abundantly compensated for this having given them a talent to produce complex watch mechanisms. Having left all the competitors behind the friends registered their Audemars Piguet brand sign in 1881 and formulated their task once and forever: to create watches, which would be incredibly complex, record accurate, thin and original. In 1889 already the chronometers of the companions caused a furor and were awarded with the medal of Exposition Universelle in Paris.
Genial watch masters did go ahead of their time. The brand provided the world with the most miniature wrist Audemars Piguet watches (diameter of 18 mm) in 1891; later these were the first complicated with many functions watches with precious stones, then it pleased its admirers with the thinnest pocket watch (the width is 1.32 mm). Chronograph #6142, made at the end of the 19th century and having no peers according to the mechanism complexity, was beyond competition; even in a century it was sold for 883,500 francs at the Sotheby’s auction. What price chronometer that has 15 complications including tourbillion, power reserve indicator, eternal calendar. There were 315 stars engraved on the disk with the definite imitation of the map of London night sky. A new generation of the dynasty continued the traditions commemorating the 1946th year with the release of the thinnest watch (with the width only of 1.64 mm), and the 1967th was signalized by the sale of the thinnest self-winding mechanisms. That is why it was not a problem for many people to buy authentic Audemars Piguet watches the price for which was affordable.
The generations of famous dynasties, which produced world-wide renowned luxurious Audemars Piguet watches, were changing, but their originality, exquisite look and perfect mechanism remain constant, and the adjustment of all the details is still performed by hands.
