The brand has always been on the edge of innovation. In the 1920’s, Audemars Piguet created the thinnest pocket watch as well as the first skeleton watch. The company survived through the Depression and continued its success by making chronograph watches during World War II. Along with Jaeger-LeCoultre, the manufacturer produced the watch with the thinnest automatic movement. Audemars Piguet has continued to lead in the luxury watch industry to this day.
