Did you ever wonder how exceptional and multi-sided the natural world is? Every day, every look into the sky kind of suggest this. Or a look at Audemars Piguet watches. As this company, creating masterpieces of the watch industry, starts from the ideas of beauty and harmony in nature, brightness and mystery of the world around us. They believe that everything we try or put on should kind of reflect the natural elements. Therefore, their watches can be of the most different shape - Audemars Piguet seems to follow no canons and have frames at all. Sometimes it is not clear where the straps are and where the face is, then the watch resembles a silver snake curled around your hand, worthy of a creature from Hoffmann's fairy tales. Or a watch face is fragmented into several parts of different sizes with mesmerizing run of small arrows on each of them.
The use of modern art elements is essential for Audemars Piguet, therefore, the creation of watches involves artists, absolutely extraordinary people with their own conception of how the world works with a special point of view at many phenomena. At that, all watches are designed in quite strict color schemes - classic black, dark blue and silver. This allows using precious stones and gold on this background looks even more appropriate and solemn. This approach to choosing colors also increases the chances of “hitting” - who does not like the timeless classics?
Moreover, after introduction of a minute repeater, eternal calendar, calendar of lunar phases and double chronograph more than a hundred years ago, the company keeps perfecting and striving for even more accuracy.
Some of the company's watches are presented at the British Museum. In 2003, the company's masters in collaboration with American actor Arnold Schwarzenegger developed a model of wristwatches, that was first presented on the actor's wrist in Terminator 3: Rise of Machines. The company has also a line of sports watches, including a must-see - their famous Royal Oak, the first professional watch made of steel, still presenting the company in the best light.
