  • Catalogue Essay

    Audemars Piguet was the first company to fit the tourbillon system into a wristwatch with an ultra-thin case in 1986. To build on this success, Audemars Piguet has since presented many tourbillon models combined with other watch complications. The present Edward Piguet model is characterised by a unique rectangular curved case enhanced with art-deco inspired lines. It features a tourbillon mechanism visible through a glazed aperture on the engine-turned dial and ensures optimal precision and originality.

  • 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.
