Audemars Piguet AP Over The Years
The Manufacture’s new Musée Atelier bears witness to a longstanding watchmaking tradition.
Retracing more than two centuries of watchmaking history, the Musée Atelier Audemars Piguet is a true masterpiece in architecture. With plans forging ahead back in 2012, the project came to fruition in March 2017 with the laying of the foundation stone. Construction was completed in April of this year, the Musée Atelier had to wait until June 25th to open its doors, due to the global health situation.

In this museum, which integrates the workshops of the Grandes Complications and the Métiers d’Art (hence the name “Musée Atelier”), the emphasis is on the watches that have made the brand famous, and for good reason: the building houses nearly 300 pieces. The Musée Atelier also serves as a thank you to the people who have contributed to the greatness of the Maison, as stated by Audemars Piguet’s Chairwoman of the Board of Directors, Jasmine Audemars: “We wanted visitors to experience our heritage, savoir-faire, cultural origins and openness to the world in a building that would reflect both our rootedness and forward-thinking spirit. But, before all, we wanted to pay tribute to the watchmakers and craftspeople who have made what Audemars Piguet is today, generation after generation.”
Audemars Piguet is one of the few independent family-owned watch businesses and has been based in Le Brassus, in Switzerland's Vallée de Joux region, at the heart of the fine watchmaking industry, ever since the company was first established in 1875.Find out more >
