594*Müller-Korauer, Basel, Geh. Nr. 31478, 50 mm, 116 gr.,circa 1910However, when the prices of ébauches began to spiral downward whilethe dealers’ margins kept increasing evermore, the family made up theirmind to start producing watches under their own name.In a surprising step the 8 Audemars sons decided to all train with differentmakers and learn all the different aspects of the craft. Around 1850 theyreturned home and began making use of their combined knowledge forthe creation of their own brand. At the time manual work still played adecisive role in the production.However, development did not favour the Audemars. Around1840 Vacheron & Constantin were the first to equip their factory withproduction machinery, closely followed by LeCoultre and other companies.In this Vacheron & Constantin were heavily relying on Georget Leschot,a mechanical engineer who had in 1825 created the base for what istoday commonly called the “Swiss lever escapement”. The new machinesworked as well as the craftsmen but three times as fast, which of coursereduced the purchasing price of the watches considerably. To counter thisdevelopment, the Audemars decided to create watches which could not bemade by machines; this was the hour of birth of the complicated watchand no other company but Audemars was able to reach such perfectcoordination of design, precision and production.Planning for the Universal Exhibition of Vienna 1873 began around 1860;a watch was to be created which was unlike any other ever before. It wasto include all complications known to man at the time. These includedthe “perfect” lever escapement, the keyless wind, 49 jewels and endstones(a first), the double winding system for two trains (another first), theindependent seconds according to Pouzait with a second gear-trainand a ‘whip’ whose end meshed with the escape pinion’s leaves, minuterepetition, a perpetual calendar with leap year compensation (once againa novelty), suspension lock for the gear wheel, hand-polished adjustinglevers between the plates and gold gear wheels.
