As one of the last family owned watch companies in Switzerland, it was our honor when we were asked to join the board despite our small stake in the wonderful brand. Our history with them goes back a long way, and like us, they are committed to protecting and harnessing the unique qualities of a family business.
In 1875 Jules Louis Audemars, decided to join forces with Edward Auguste Piguet, in order to develop and craft watches equipped with complex mechanisms. Today, Audemars Piguet is still the oldest fine watch-making manufacturer never to have left the hands of its founding families. This gives the company an independent streak that allows it to go its own way and follow its own unique vision.
With the 140 year heritage of B.P. de Silva's presence in Asia, we hope to able to continue to contribute and preserve a brand that deserves all the recognition that it has achieved. We are proud to be a part of their incredible story.
