Audemars Piguet was founded by Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet and is the oldest watch manufacturer to still be in the hands of the founding families. With over 140 years of history, the brand manufactures a wide range of high-end watches and is known for pushing the boundaries with bold designs and unique materials. In 1972, they were the first haute horlogerie brand to pursue the idea of a luxury sport watch, giving birth to one of the brands most popular pieces, the Royal Oak.Overhaul is recommended at the buyer’s expense.
