  • Catalogue Essay

    This impressive yellow gold cuff watch stands out with its sensuous, round shaped forms and tear-shaped drops set with sapphires and diamonds. While Piaget was using hard stones for the dials on most of their creations, it’s highly uncommon to find precious stones on a Piaget cuff watch. This extravagant example was almost certainly been made as a special order for an important client. The beautiful lapis lazuli dial complements the sapphires perfectly, while the attractive, faceted gold dauphine hands make it a pleasure to read the time.

    Such wonderful creations by Piaget are unmatched, and are considered collectible works of art. The present example is in excellent condition and will certainly delight any collector seeking to wear a piece of art on their wrist.

  • 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.
