  • Catalogue Essay

    “There is only one thing as breathtaking as a Piaget watch. A Piaget Pendant.” So said Piaget - the brand known as the jeweler of watchmaking – to describe such an iconic work of art.

    Piaget was a brand of choice for chic and sophisticated jet-setters of the 1970s. A specialist in the manufacture of ultra-thin mechanical movements, Piaget possessed unique skills that allowed them to use precious hard stones throughout their creations, while keeping their timepieces thin and well proportioned. It was during this very colorful and playful era where Dalí, Warhol, Arman, Hans Erni, Liz Taylor, Jackie Kennedy, Marisa Berenson, Ursula Andress, among others, were often seen wearing the masterpieces of Piaget.

    The present example is a superb representation of Piaget’s extravagance. This versatile pendant watch, with a silky and lustrous tiger’s eye dial, was designed to be either worn around a lady’s neck or may be cleverly detached to be worn around the wrist. One remarkable piece of jewelry with two unforgettable ways to be enjoyed. Each evokes the jet-set look of the past with a timeless appeal for generations to come.

  • 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.
