The history of Audemars Piguet is the story of an exceptional place and exceptional individuals. The place is the Vallée de Joux in the heart of the Swiss Jura. The individuals are Jules Audemars and Edward Piguet, who became associates in 1875, giving rise to the Manufacture Audemars Piguet. Both were watchmakers who built on their knowledge and expertise to play a pioneering role. They rose to the challenge of crafting exceptional watches in their entirety under one roof. Active ever since, the company has remained in the hands of the founding families. Day after day, Audemars Piguet reinterprets the past with a modern vision, while making the most of technological progress. Once again, Audemars Piguet has responded to the appeal from the Monaco Association Against Muscular Dystrophy (AMM) to support research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a highly debilitating neuromuscular disease. For its fourth participation in Only Watch, Audemars Piguet?s CEO Philippe Merk recalled ?the brand?s attachment to this noble cause? and expressed the hope that ?the funds raised will enable the emergence of new therapies for this disorder.? This year, the Manufacture is presenting a prestigious timepiece, the ?Jules Audemars Gstaad Classic?. This one-of-a-kind model in pink gold features a case back engraved ?Audemars Piguet Only Watch ? Gstaad Classic ? 2011?. Its dial, inspired by the 1920?s, lends a discreetly vintage touch, creating an aesthetic both chic and sporty, classic and contemporary. This chronograph does not merely revisit history; it beats to the rhythm of an exclusive Audemars Piguet calibre. Audemars Piguet Only
