The Vallée de Joux, birthplace of both Audemars Piguet
And lots of high-end Swiss watchmaking, is a beautiful, ruggedly beautiful region located in the Jura Mountains, north west of Geneva. The natural sources of this Vallée de Joux — especially the woods, ice, water and stones where iron ore can be extracted, given the way for the watch business to evolve and flourish. To this day, the raw character of the royal area with lively views of the crystal clear night skies has served as inspiration for watchmakers. See mechanics are really representations of this passing of time as ordered by novelty, and character has ever motivated the growth of time measurement apparatus.
Audemars Piguet embodies the foundations of watchmaking, as specialised abilities unite with excellence, a finely-tuned awareness of detail has been pushed to its limits, and artistic life is breathed to a timepiece to make it a truly exceptional and one of a kind work of art. These foundations were put on an infrequent savoir-faire, which dates back to bygone days and continues to be passed down with the extreme dedication from production to production of watchmakers in Audemars Piguet’s workbenches since 1875.
