Audemars Piguet is the oldest fine watchmaking manufacturer still in the hands of its founding families, based in Le Brassus, Switzerland since 1875.
Through vintage timepieces, detailed design sketches, watchmaking experiences, and more, this exhibition will provide the visitors the opportunities on the history of the Royal Oak, the manufacturer’s innovative luxury watch, and how it continues to evolve while staying true to its design for 50 years.
Organized by: Audemars Piguet

21_21 DESIGN SIGHT will hold an exhibition starting on June 13, that will examine the genesis of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s work. The exhibition will be directed by Pascal Roulin, a Paris- and Tokyo-based video director, and will feature the precursors of "L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped, Paris, 1961–2021" on display which will illustrate the processes that brought the project to fruition.
The exhibition will also be a celebration of all those who followed in the artist-couple's footsteps. We celebrate how this remarkable team surmounted even the challenges posed by a global pandemic through the power of creativity and shared joy.
Exhibition Director: Pascal Roulin
21_21 DESIGN SIGHT Gallery 3 is a presentation space dedicated to design, which develops collaborative programs with domestic and overseas corporations, which constitute one of the major bases of making things, as well as educational, research and cultural institutions. Through programs that inform the very present of design, here, we can think about our everyday life and future with a greater number of people, and make various proposals.
Through networks that continue to expand from the Gallery 3 as the hub, 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT will explore a multifaceted “design point of view” in future.
