  • Catalogue Essay

    Audemars Piguet in 1986 was the first company to fit a tourbillon into a ultra-thin case and it was in the 1990s, alongside the Royal Oak, their classic wristwatches were divided up either into Jules Audemars with circular case or an Edward Piguet for their art-deco inspired rectangular curved cases. The present tourbillon wristwatch exemplifies the creative spirit at Audemars Piguet and demonstrates clearly how the Edward Piguet collection is supposed to be with its rectangular curved case with art-deco inspired lines and its beautifully skeletonized dial.

  • Artist Biography

    Audemars Piguet

    Swiss • 1881

    A specialist in the manufacture of complications since it was established in 1881, Audemars Piguet never ceases to impress with a rich history of creating bold, even audacious, timepieces underpinned by traditional watchmaking at its finest. This Le Brassus-based Swiss manufacturer is one of only two major manufacturers still owned by the founding family. Since its earliest days, AP is considered a leader in the field of minute repeaters and grande complication pocket and wristwatches. The brand is devoted to preserving the history of watchmaking in the Vallée de Joux, showcased at their superb museum in Le Brassus.

    Today, the brand is best known for its Royal Oak models, a revolutionary luxury sports watch launched in 1972. Other key models include early minute repeating wristwatches, vintage chronograph wristwatches, such as the oversized reference 5020, perpetual calendar watches and the Royal Oak Offshore, first introduced in 1993.
