  • Catalogue Essay

    From the 1970s until present day, some of Piaget’s most famous creations that have certainly differentiated the brand are their spectacular cuff watches. An impressive example of the “Manchette” model, the present cuff watch is a true signature piece of the brand. Made of concentric shapes, they grace the wrist in an elegant, conical manner unlike any other timepiece.

    Using a multitude of different hard stone for their dials, these statement pieces were destined for members of high society – clients of great taste who enjoyed such creative and unique designs. Crafted in yellow gold, all elements were hand finished using a technique of gold hammering, giving it a unique texture that is sublime. The dial is made of Tiger's Eye, which, along with Lapis Lazuli, is one of Piaget’s most frequently used stones due to its timeless beauty. Created in the 1970s, the aesthetic still inspires the brand’s designers today, with reinterpreted examples still offered in Piaget’s current collection.

  • 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.
