Throughout its long history, Audemars Piguet has striven to be at the forefront of new watchmaking technology, so it’s not surprising that Audemars Piguet is a pioneer in the genre of the minute-repeater watch.

Many significant Audemars Piguet watch models and complications followed the groundbreaking minute repeater watch, such as the Full Calendar in 1921, Caliber 2003 in 1945, the Perpetual Calendar in 1957, and automatic Caliber 2120 in 1967. Other Audemars Piguet watches included Tourbillons and Grande Complications. But it was in 1972 that Audemars Piguet released the watch that became its signature, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, which quickly became Audemars Piguet’s leading model and remains so today. The Royal Oak later begat the even sportier Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore watches, some famous examples of which are also covered in our article.
