  • Catalogue Essay

    Once again, Piaget enchants us with a very creative bracelet watch. While the famous “Manchettes” were intended for elegant, evening affairs, some bracelet watches offered greater wearing versatility. The present watch is rather modest in comparison, but “so-Piaget” in every detail. It could certainly complement a cocktail dress, yet just as easily provide an amazing vintage jet-set look when worn with a casual outfit.

    Articulated, interlocked gold rings make it very comfortable to wear. The perfect blend between a watch and a jewel, its vivid blue lapis lazuli dial combines with the warm yellow gold to give this watch a very distinctive and luxurious look.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1874

    Creativity, audacity and know-how are the values that gave Piaget its international reputation and allowed the brand to distinguish itself in the world of fine watchmaking and precision. Founder Georges Edouard Piaget established the company in 1874 and manufactured watch movements. While Piaget is famously recognized today for their elaborate wristwatch and bangle designs, they also mastered the marriage of their high-quality, in-house-produced wristwatches and stunning pieces of jewelry.

    Collectors consider the 1970s as Piaget's era of superb creativity and unbounded designs. During this highly creative period, the brand designed an impressive range of cuff and bracelet watches carved in gold and adorned with exotic hard stones. Admired by most as not only jewelry but also true works of art, the firm's hard stone dial watches remain the most iconic, recognizable and desirable among collectors.
