Audemars Piguet’s Extreme Christmas Adventure

Perhaps human beings are pursuing the ultimate nature. White Christmas always seems to emit a magnetic field that is harder to resist than Red Christmas. Holly, mistletoe, elk and passionate red have long been traditional symbols. And white, pure and unknown, and at the same time approaching infinite possibilities, unlike others, creating our own dreams is the ultimate aspiration of each of us.

  As a legend of fine watchmaking, Audemars Piguet’s exploration in the field of ‘white’ is like this journey. It is the ultimate in the journey and the possibility of exploring in the unknown. The white on your wrist is not just color, but your fearless courage and eternal pursuit. Christmas 2014, let’s start a white adventure.

  The Legend of the Frozen Valley

  The long history of Christmas rests on the inheritance of family spirit and cultural customs. As the world’s only top watch brand that is always managed by the founder family, Audemars Piguet’s legendary history begins in the small town of LeBrassus, Switzerland. The winter here is extremely long, and it has been frozen in snow and ice for half a year. As if it was a generous gift from heaven, white Christmas has been here for many years.

  It is in this quiet white world that the dexterous artisans are far away from the hustle and bustle of the world and have been studying their skills for centuries. Adjacent to the natural and primitive realm, they learn the spirituality of natural elements and hone their highest level of watchmaking machinery in countless long winters that fight the cold. Today’s Jurassic Valley is known as the cradle of complication watches for its complication of timepieces. Here, Audemars Piguet’s founders, JulesLouisAudemars and EdwardAugustePiguet, and their grandchildren, have written the ultimate legend of the independent spirit of the watch industry.

  The Adventures of White Christmas

  In 2014, Audemars Piguet will celebrate its 139th Christmas. As the most loyal and simple guardian of time, Audemars Piguet opens the white Christmas adventure world with three elegant white watches.

  Audemars Piguet watches are made of white ceramic, not only because of its smooth and bright appearance, but also because of its extremely high degree of wear resistance. White ceramics are nine times harder than stainless steel, and only diamonds can leave scratches on their surfaces. Due to the extremely high wear resistance of ceramics, polishing or wire drawing on its rough surfaces and edges is definitely a difficult technical challenge. As the master of polishing technology, Audemars Piguet creates the fine contrast effect of light and matte on the same material, which is the ultimate touch of Audemars Piguet.
