    From 1906 to the 1920's, some 35 minute-repeating watches of 10''', 11''', and 12 lignes were made in their workshops, 20 of which were to intended for wristwatches. Certain of these ebauches were finished, cased, and sold during later decades. After the death of the two founders, Audemars Piguet created the smallest minute-repeating watch and in 1911, the 10''' movement. All Audemars Piguet products were sold in Le Brassus, Geneva, London, Paris, Berlin and New York. The manufacturers worked in collaboration with important retailers all over the world. Their clients included, among others: Dent and Frodsham in London, Tiffany in New York, Cartier and Breguet in Paris, Bulgari in Rome, and Dürrstein in Glashütte and Dresden.
