Audemars Piguet - Freida Pinto and Omar Sy visit the Manufacture

Audemars Piguet Freida Pinto and Omar Sy visit the Manufacture

Over the past couple of months, Audemars Piguet welcomed two of its brand ambassadors based in Hollywood to its birthplace in Le Brassus, Switzerland

Experimenting the same harsh winter conditions that the Audemars Piguet founders lived in when they opened the Manufacture in 1875, Indian actress Freida Pinto, who was revealed in Slumdog Millionaire, and France’s favorite actor Omar Sy, lately seen in Inferno, discovered a wealth of world-first and complicated timepieces while touring the private museum and restoration workshop.

Freida Pinto was amazed at the watchmakers’ passion and dedication when working on tiny components with such craftsmanship. The new Royal Oak Frosted Gold watches also caught her attention with their sparkling effect. Fresh from filming her next series Guerrilla, Freida had attended the product launch event in Florence earlier on, where she had the pleasure to meet with jewellery designer Carolina Bucci who collaborated with Audemars Piguet to create the Royal Oak Frosted Gold.

Omar Sy on the other hand, was particularly sensitive to the heritage of the brand and the fact that it is still owned and run by the founding families. He enjoyed trying on the new watchs that were recently presented at the 2017 Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva and spent a full hour successfully assembling a movement with unbelievable concentration and determination!

The brand

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.
