Founded in 1875, Audemars Piguet is an independent family business established in and continually operating from Le Brassus, in the Vallée de Joux, the cradle of watchmaking in Switzerland. It is still the oldest fine watch-making manufacturer never to have left the hands of its founding families. Audemars Piguet blends a 140-year old family business tradition with modern technologies like 3D-printing and collaborations with rappers and basketball players.

An engineer and economist by training, Olivier Audemars, great-grandson of one of the founders of Audemars Piguet and Vice Chairman of the company’s Board of Directors, will speak about the development of a Swiss watch manufacturer from the Vallée de Joux going global, including experiences in the Japanese market.
