In 1882, comes their first complicated pocket watch including perpetual calendar, minute repeater and chronograph. In 1891, AP gained fame with the smallest ever-minute repeating movement. In 1915, one of their most complicated pocket watches is produced with 15 complications. First wristwatch came in 1893 even though it really pick up after the 20-century. AP was really an avant-garde company with attractive design and complicated movement. In 1929, the production of wristwatches overpasses the pocket watches.
