Audemars Piguet

Audemars Piguet is a brand that can look back on the long company history & the one that a number of other brands still involved in the laborious process of creating a firm foundation story could definitely be envious of. It could never dawn on anone at Audemars Piguet to name one of their watches for the year the corporation started business or to write 1875 on a dial, and they doesn't come up with a big deal concerning the fact that in 986, for example, once the term tourbillon was still being relatively unknown even among the experts, the best serial toubillon wristwatches were already in production in Le Brassus. That the company focuses on especially flat watches is often just mentioned in passing. Escapements made of silicon, Diamond-coated balance springs? Such things are all in a day's work for the engineers at Audemars Piguet.Going a step further, they have even developed a progressive escapement in accordance with the classic chronometer escapement using steel and ruby jewel bearings-tried and true factors that have already been utilized for watchmaking for centuries. Does Audemars Piguet reject the benefits of using modern materials? Definitely not, but each material is carefully selected to serve a functional purpose, similar to the cases crafted in forged carbon that make the Royal Oak Offshore a pleasantly light, but no less masculine timepiece. Forged carbon offers the added advantage that all watch is going to be unique because the surface structure created during the forging process can not be predetermined.

At the 2009 S.I.H.H. in Geneva, Audemars Piguet presented a wrist watch ready for serial production having a balance that vibrates at the incredible frequency of 43,2000 vph, twice as fast as most manufacture movements currently being produced and quite a bit faster compared to 28,800 vpn industry standard.Back in 2006 the manufacture introduced a new escapement that functioned at a less frenetic 21,600 vph, but even back then tests had shown that the AP escapements was capable of running perfectly at 43,200 vph or 6 hertz even without having lubrication of the pallet stones, which will quickly dissipate at the speed anyway. The omission of lubricant solves a problem that has plagued watchmakers provided mechanical timepieces have been in business: gumming or hardening of the oil. This fresh escapement is based on an invention by Parisian royal clockmaker Robert Robin (1742-1799). He designed a new system in 1791 that combined the virtues of these two well-known escapements during the day, so-called free-sprung escapement and one including energy transfer via pallet fork and guard pin included in the precursor for the modern Swiss lever escapement as designed by Thosmas Mudge in 1759.Audemars Piguet has succeeded in securing some great benefits of both systems in their new high-frequency escapement, solving the oil problem and introducing the latest and important component to the sport: rate precision.
