Unveiling the innovation and artistry of Audemars Piguet’s savoir-faire, the exhibition will highlight the main milestones of this epic watchmaking story, while demonstrating the manufacturer’s unwavering loyalty to its core philosophy:
“For some time now, we have observed a growing interest in and appreciation for Audemars Piguet in South East Asia, particularly in Thailand, so we have come to share our origins, our heritage and our values. We look forward to the creative stimulation that inevitably comes from the meeting of two different cultures that are nevertheless united in their appreciation of what is rare and lastingly beautiful.” – François Henry Bennahmias, Chief Executive Officer of Audemars Piguet.
