Audemars Piguet’s state-of-the-art museum, which was due to formally open in April, is now expected to welcome its first visitors in June.

The space encompasses a contemporary spiral-shaped glass pavilion built alongside AP’s oldest building in Le Brassus, where Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet established their workshop in 1875.

This architectural combination symbolises the blend of tradition and forward thinking at the heart of Audemars Piguet’s craftsmanship, while honoring its deep-rooted origins in the Vallée de Joux.

As well as the collection of over 300 watches, the museum is a live space with two specialized ateliers situated at the heart of the spiral.

The first is dedicated to the Grandes Complications while he second workshop hosts the Métiers d’Art, where Haute Joaillerie creations are crafted by highly skilled jewelers, gem-setters and engravers.
