The Innovations Of The Audemars Piguet Watch

With a proud history that dates back to 1875, Audemars Piguet  is one of the finest and most celebrated luxury watchmakers ever, and is one of the few remaining independent watch manufacturers in Switzerland. The company has many ‘firsts’ in the industry, here is a list of just some of the milestones and achievements that Audemars Piguet has been responsible for:

In 1892, the first minute repeater wristwatch was developed and produced.

In 1915, the smallest five-minute repeater movement ever made, was developed. The diameter was a tiny 15.80mm.

In 1921, the brand developed the first jumping-hour wristwatch.

In 1925, Audemars Piguet produced the world’s thinnest pocket watch movement – 1.32 mm thick.

In 1946, Audemars Piguet developed the world’s thinnest wristwatch.

In 1957, Audemars Piguet developed the first wristwatch equipped with a perpetual calendar.

In 1967, Audemars Piguet developed the world’s thinnest selfwinding automatic movement with a thickness of 2.45 mm.

From 1970 to the mid 1990s, AP banged out one innovation after another, barely allowing their competitors to take a breath, let alone compete. They launched the ultra-thin perpetual calendar wristwatch with a central rotor, self-winding ultra-thin tourbillon, self-winding grand complication, wristwatch equation of time with perpetual calendar and high-frequency chronometer with double-balance AP Escapement.

In 1986, Audemars Piguet releases another world first: the first ever self-winding ultra-thin wristwatch to feature a second time zone. The tourbillon carriage inside this watch is, at the time, the smallest made in history.

In 1992, the Royal Oak Offshore makes its debut. The Offshore, which will become the favorite watch of Arnold Schwarzenegger, is the world’s first sight of an outsize luxury watch. Its 42mm case gives it the nickname ‘The Beast’. Unusual materials for a luxury watch, including rubber and carbon, are incorporated into the design.

In 2000, Audemars Piguet launches the ‘Tradition’ family of complicated luxury replicas watches, showcasing some of the most innovative complications in modern horology.

In 2005, Audemars Piguet sells the renowned Edward Piguet Moss Agate Tourbillon, which was the first watch to ever be made with moss agate.

In 2007, Audemars Piguet releases the world’s first carbon-forged watch case.

In 2009, Audemars Piguet developed a high-frequency chronometer, equipped with an escapement, and a double balance-spring.
