Spe­cial guest of the evening, Mr. Jetrin “Jay” Wat­tanasin, Aude­mars Piguet's Thai ‘Friend Of The Brand' wel­comed all dis­tin­guished guests to an im­mer­sive jour­ney through space and time, ex­plor­ing both tech­nol­ogy and

artistry. The ex­hi­bi­tion wel­comed vis­i­tors into the world of Aude­mars Piguet in the Val­lée de Joux. Each sec­tion re­veal­ing a story about the brand, its tra­di­tions and in­no­va­tions, and its home in the re­mote and wildly beau­ti­ful Val­lée de Joux.

Over 50 time­pieces were dis­played, each piece cho­sen by Aude­mars Piguet's Mu­seum Di­rec­tor, Mr, Sébas­tian Vi­vas. Among them, in­clud­ing sev­eral world firsts and many one-of-a-kind mod­els such as an orig­i­nal Triple Com­pli­ca­tion pocket watch from 1880, an Art Deco time­piece fea­tur­ing jump­ing hours with an aper­ture dis­play from 1930, the orig­i­nal Royal Oak Off­shore launched in 1993, as well as the world's thinnest self­wind­ing Per­pet­ual Cal­en­dar – the Royal Oak RD#2.
