Meet our #APpeople
HERITAGE & MUSEUM SPECIALIST
Over time I have been able to evolve my career and I am proud of that. I started out as a service watchmaker and then joined the Customer Service team, with stints in the Fusterie boutique in Geneva. Since 2020, I have been working as Heritage & Museum Specialist, a job with varied responsibilities, as our team is in charge of preparing travelling exhibitions, for which I travel and transmit my passion. We also enrich our collection of heritage timepieces and accompany visits to Le Brassus.
PURCHASING COMMODITY MANAGER
Coming from another field, I started training as a watchmaker. After a revealing visit to the boutique, I applied for a role at Audemars Piguet and today I am part of this passionate family. My colleagues have passed on this passion to me by accompanying me in the discovery of the watchmaking techniques. It is a pleasure to share this with them on a daily basis.
EXHIBITIONS & TRADE MARKETING MANAGER
What I like in my job is being able to imagine, develop and create new scenographies that tell our stories. I am always looking for new materials to bring these to life. We are lucky to be able to express the brand stories through different platforms (music, art, corporate exhibitions, etc.) and this keeps our projects diverse and exciting! Notwithstanding our size, AP feels like a start-up with a strong family spirit.
HEAD OF IT CUSTOMER SOLUTIONS
In my role as Head of IT Customer Solutions, I am lucky to be able to work in a company where nothing is impossible. It's easy to engage with our superiors. We can express ourselves freely. It's direct, like the values of the brand, and it's this daily reality that allows us to develop our ideas freely. IT is a service department, my customers are largely my colleagues and we work every day to create the best possible experience for them and for our end customers.
INNOVATION LEAD COORDINATOR
Arriving a year ago, a real adventure began for me. Being very curious by nature and keen to learn, I take great pleasure in exploring the various subjects of innovation entrusted to me. Working in a watchmaking company that has such a heritage but which nevertheless remains very agile, allows me to be a source of inspiration on a daily basis. And this is truly motivating!
HEAD OF INDUSTRIALIZATION
In addition to a strong prospect of development within the various departments, there is a strong cohesion between the teams at Audemars Piguet. Each employee has his or her role to play; challenges and questioning the status quo are always on the agenda. This daily stimulation and the willingness to accept all challenges motivates me to move forward and allows me to contribute to the progress of a company with very strong values.
During my first interview at Audemars Piguet, I immediately felt I was actually listened to. By placing people at the centre of its activities and decisions, AP offers a stimulating and caring working environment that is consistent with our needs. To evolve within an authentic, international, family company with human values is a true opportunity.
CLIENT SERVICE MANAGER
I joined Audemars Piguet 5 years ago in the Finance team. The opportunities and support of Audemars Piguet mean that today I have a completely different hat as Operations Manager in Customer Service. What makes me want to start my day is knowing that what I bring will be taken into account as our company encourages our talents. Audemars Piguet knows how to recognise the skills of its employees and gives them opportunities to develop in order to be better every day.
Part of my job working in HR is recruiting new employees. I must say that it really is a luxury to truly believe what you are telling candidates when you are trying to sell them on working here. I can’t imagine that every recruiter gets to say that about their company. Even after 5 years this doesn’t get old.
ASSISTANT BOUTIQUE MANAGER
Joining Audemars Piguet has always been a dream for me. Today, I work at the Fusterie boutique in Geneva. AP is a sweet mix between tradition and a start-up spirit. We are constantly adapting and evolving in a setting where ideas are always welcome to improve our procedures. It is an environment open to proposals, healthy and comforting, because we are really part of the same "family".
COMPLICATIONS WATCHMAKER CLIENT SERVICE
What distinguishes Audemars Piguet is the true balance between the well-being of the company and the well-being of the employees. In the context of the current crisis AP has managed this difficult situation with extreme care and professionalism. But AP is also about the little things, a bouquet of flowers for the arrival of my baby or being personally invited by HR to join the staff party during my maternity leave.

TEAM LEADER PRODUCTION
Within Audemars Piguet, exchange is a philosophy that is encouraged and it represents our strength. We share the challenges and problems of everyday life and celebrate our successes together. This mindset allows us to always see the glass half full.

Our headquarters - Le Brassus
It was in the heart of the Vallée de Joux, a region pulsating with the beat of complicated watch mechanisms, that everything started for Audemars Piguet in 1875. We remain family-owned and are still located in Le Brassus. This is part of who we are - a symbol of our independence. Our location in this unyielding and mystic valley can feel remote, but is just 1h away from Geneva and 50 minutes from Lausanne.
