Blassus, January 28, 2015 – Ian Poulter, an Audemars Piguet golf ambassador who loves mechanics, went to Brassus, Switzerland, to visit the Swiss Advanced System earlier this month. The birthplace of watch brand Audemars Piguet.
The heavy snowfall that day reminded us of the severe cold environment that the founder of Audemars Piguet faced when he founded the watch factory in the Jurassic Valley 140 years ago. Ian Pault visited the brand for the first time to understand the long history of the brand. During his visits to private museums and restoration workshops, he was amazed by the world’s first masterpieces of complex timepieces, and the archives and materials have been preserved for centuries.
Ian Poulter is known for his attention to detail and the pursuit of perfection. He is amazed by the passion and dedication of the watchmaker when preparing tools for polishing fine parts. He also tried on a new watch that was launched during the Haute Horlogerie show in Geneva last week, and was deeply interested in the assembly process of the movement that required great attention and persistence.
Audemars Piguet is proud to invite Ian Pault to join the Audemars Piguet Golf Ambassador ‘Dream Team’, which perfectly embodies the value of Audemars Piguet’s ‘Tobreaktherules, you first master them’. Ian Pault’s spirit of freedom and independence is more elegant and unforgettable. During his stay in Switzerland, he wore a Royal OakOffshore Royal Oak Offshore 44mm chronograph with a forged carbon case.
