As the old saying goes 'time will tell'. Nowhere is that more true than in the worlds of fashion and design. And it is those two elements that come together in each and every Audemars Piguet watch. And a company that has been in the fine Swiss watchmaking business since 1875 has stood the test of time. The renown of this iconic watch manufacturer and the iconic nature of their creations is due in no small part to the fact that they design and produce timepieces that feature exquisitely intricate movements combined with classic style and luxury.
Among the most sought-after watches in the world today, the 1972 sports model by Audemars Piguet redefined luxury watchmaking, a proud tradition that continues today in each and every model in the company's exquisite collection - and is epitomized by its flagship model - the incredibly popular Royal Oak.
This independent watchmaker has refused to be bound by the ordinary and has been worn by some of the most recognizable celebrities of sport and the silver screen, including Michael Schumaker and Arnold Swartzennger.
The attention to detail in every timepiece created by Audemars Piguet is a reflection of a long tradition. Their magnificent 'Grande Complication' pocket watch was recognized as a masterpiece at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1889 and today the company continues to value innovation and pushing the boundaries of convention, as well as creating timepieces that are nothing less than mechanical marvels.
Today, the company's collection of men's and women's watches boasts unparalleled choice for those who appreciate the finer things in life - and the sheer beauty and luxury of timepieces that are recognized as modern-day icons. Among the many noteworthy models are the Royal Oak range which is available in a number of variants, including the magnificent Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Flying Tourbillon, a self-winding model, chronographs, and many others in a variety of finishes. Of special interest to the Formula One aficionado would be the Royal Oak Offshore Limited Edition Michael Schumacher, with its Titanium finish. From avant-garde style, to faultless workmanship, mechanical excellence, and stunning good looks, the Audemars Piguet Millenary 4101 Stainless Steel is a watch that will never fail to impress. The transparent dial side displays components that are usually hidden by the back of the watch. For those in search of classic, understated style and a dress watch that will turn heads the Code 11.59 range offers magnificent rose gold cases and stunning good looks (the lacquered smoked purple face is especially striking for its unusual coloration).
Audemars Piguet combines a rich heritage of excellence and a commitment to the unusual - the company believes that rules are meant to be broken. However, it is the commitment to excellence in style and luxury, and mechanical merit that keeps this company in its illustrious position as one of the top three watch manufacturers in Switzerland - keeping company with watchmakers Vacheron Constantin and Patek Philippe.
For the discerning buyer in search of a timepiece that boasts timeless elegance, luxury and unique design, Audemars Piguet provides a collection that features watches for every occasion, while at the same time emphasizing the unique taste of the wearer.
