Challenging the Limits of Craftsmanship
For over 144 years, Audemars Piguet has nurtured generations of talented craftspeople dedicated to practicing their skills at the highest level, building on tradition, while consistently breaking the well-mastered rules of horology. Never taking its savoir-faire for granted, Audemars Piguet continuously challenges its practices and production standards in an endless quest for artistry, excellence and technical perfection.
Audemars Piguet is the oldest fine watchmaking manufacturer still in the hands of its founding families. Devoted to the preservation and transmission of its passion, savoir-faire and avant-garde spirit, Audemars Piguet continues to infuse its timepieces with enduring values of artistic excellence and technical mastery. Taking ownership of its roots, Audemars Piguet also affirms its creative vision through artistic reinterpretations, such as infrared shots, of the natural landscape of the Vallée de Joux, where it all began in 1875.
Daring to Follow Firm Convictions
Going against the flow of industrialisation in 1875, Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet turned their backs on the lure of mass markets, daring to craft unique complicated watches.
Since then, Audemars Piguet has charted its own course. A century later, Audemars Piguet continued to create bold complicated wristwatches in defiance of the quartz crisis, venturing to develop the world’s thinnest selfwinding perpetual calendar in 1978 and paving the way for the revival of classical mechanical complications.
Never Standing Still
Constantly reinventing itself, while never losing sight of its origins, Audemars Piguet never stands still. With the emergence of the digital age, Audemars Piguet has kept following its own path, using transformative technologies to create ground-breaking timepieces. Passionate, innovative, and persevering, Audemars Piguet’s craftsmen continuously develop new skills and techniques, broadening their savoir-faire to set rule-breaking trends

CODE 11.59 BY AUDEMARS PIGUET MINUTE REPEATER SUPERSONNERIE
The minute repeater supersonnerie enriches the collection with a revamped high-end complication that continues to profit from the strong momentum of the minute repeater supersonnerie technology launched in 2016.
This contemporary wristwatch has the sonic power of a pocket watch. Its exceptional acoustic performance, sound quality and harmonic tone are granted by the patented gongs, case construction and striking regulator developed at the time. The performant gongs are not attached to the mainplate, but to a new device acting as soundboard, which improves sound transmission. The redesigned striking regulator eliminates unwanted noise thanks to its more flexible anchor system.
The 18 carat white gold case is complemented by a smoked blue enamel dial set off by white gold hands, applied indexes and numerals, as well as an Audemars Piguet signature in enamel. The soundwave caseback design is inspired by the watch’s exceptional acoustics.
