Two friends - one brand

She began her career as a repairer in the last quarter of the 19th century. Watch specialists who, in their time, were the last to hold the finished watch in their hands before it left the manufactory. They were responsible for the final polish, the final inspection. 1875 was their year: Jules-Louis Audemars and his friend Edward-Auguste Piguet seized the favor of the Wilhelminian period and developed their first own watches. From 1881 the joint venture Audemars Piguet & Cie. produced complicated pocket watches with perpetual calendar, minute repeater or chronograph function and won a medal at the Paris World Exhibition in 1889 with "La Grande Complication". Only 100 copies of this precious watch, which was already considered a luxury watch at the time, were sold all over the world. In 1891 the world's smallest movement astonished the public and experts, in 1892 the first wristwatch with minute-repeater.From the 1920s onwards, the second generation of companies took the helm and concentrated on the production of the highest quality wristwatches, fashion watches that shone with precious metals and precious stones. The Swiss company's developments also adorned the elegant displays of the noble jewellers Tiffany (New York) and Van Cleff & Arpels (Paris). Today's Jules Audemars Edition takes up quotes from this period and varies in a captivating way female beauty needs with masculine expressiveness. Far more than luxury watches, these models are pieces of jewellery that express themselves in an stupendous harmony of material, colour and form. Courage for avant-garde and creativity for extravagance right from the start. The Millenary Collection takes up classicist aesthetic elements. Unique in its form, influenced by the architecture of the Roman Colosseum, are the elaborately crafted dials on which Arabic numerals and Roman applications display hours and minutes on two asynchronous discs. In the "Lady Precieuse" version, countless diamonds sparkle on the bezel and bracelet.With networks that have grown over many years, HORANDO is in a position to track down even rarer desired objects of the Audemars Piguet brand and make them available both for buying watches on the Internet and in its own showroom. This also applies to the models of the Audemars Piguet luxury watch Royal Oak. Lovers of luxury watches often shy away from no way to convince themselves directly and directly of the advantages of this wonderful luxury watch in the stationary shop in Bamberg.

"Royal Oak" - legend, masterpiece, beauty? All in one!

We do not know why the director of Audemars Piguet was in such a hurry when he contacted the renowned Geneva watch designer Gérald Genta in the afternoon of one September day in 1970 to place an extraordinarily short-term order. The first draft of a watertight sports watch made of steel is said to have been available the very next morning. The prototype of the Royal Oak amazed with its avant-garde square shape, its porthole appearance and the visible robust screws that connected the bezel to the case. The similarity with historical diving helmets immediately caught the eye. When it appeared on the market in 1972, the model with the ultra-flat case of the modern watch manufacturer made its mark.In 2012 Audemars Piguet reissued the style icon of modern watchmaking in eight models. Every detail is quoted by the early Royal Oak, which borrowed its name from special battleships of the British Royal Navy. The battleship became the flagship. Like the historic Royal Oak, the modern one can be recognised by the decor "Petite Tapisserie". It is developed in Audemars Piguet's own workshops on traditional machines and creates its unique effect by superimposing two different decors and a special blue colouring on the dial and date disc (e.g. reference 15202ST.OO.1240ST.01). 40 years ago, a watch diameter of 39 mm was still considered oversized. Today it is very in tune with the taste of the times. Your profile in detail: case centre part, bezel, bracelet and folding clasp made of stainless steel. 8 hexagonal screws in white gold. Same movement as 1972, caliber 2121 with mechanical winding. Power reserve of 40 hours. A total of 247 components. 22 carat gold oscillating weight.

A class of its own - Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore

The Edition Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph is limited to 50 watches and features innovative materials such as forged carbon, ceramic (on the bezel), titanium-ceramic combination (on the pusher) and rubber straps. A total of 335 individual parts compose a masterful example of watchmaking origin. The movement of the Royal Oak Offshore can be observed at work through the anti-reflective sapphire crystal back (e.g. reference 26401RO.OO.A002CA.01)

The clock of the virile grandees

It comes as no surprise that a sports watch that shines not only in terms of functionality but also in terms of beauty is also sought after by the greats of competitive sports. The company itself demonstrates its strong commitment to sport in its commitment to the successful Swiss sailing team Alinghi. Like other luxury watches of the same rank, the limited edition models of Audemars Piguet have become coveted collectors' items and favourites among celebrity enthusiasts. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Formula One star Pablo Montoya and racing legend Michael Schumacher wear Audemars Piguet. In 2012, the watch empire dedicated a limited edition of three models in titanium, pink gold and platinum to Michael Schumacher: seven stars to the right of the 12 o'clock display honour his seven world championship titles. You don't have to be a sports celebrity to connect with an Audemars Piguet. But anyone who feels this aesthetically and technically enchanting watch brand on their wrist can feel privileged.
