Audemars Piguet Museum tour with Martin Werhli
April 24, 2009
The Audemars Piguet museum is housed in the old building where Audemars Piguet was founded in 1875. It is one of the most popular horological museums among serious collector's, because the collection is so far-ranging, that almost every important complication is on display.
To show me around was AP Museum Director & Curator, Martin Werhli. During the tour we went room to room, viewing every piece of this truly amazing collection. Each room and each piece with its own story. Martin explained the historic and chronometric importance of every timepiece in the collection, whether it was the world's smallest minute repeater or the first ever Royal Oak Offshore. Telling a story of rich watchmaking tradition, that began 250 years ago in the heart of fine swiss watchmaking - the Vallée de Joux.
