  • Catalogue Essay

    The present watch is an excellent example of the firm’s creative work during the 1970’s. The case and bracelet are crafted in white gold, highly decorated and set with asymmetrically positioned lapis lazuli bars, perfectly matching the lapis lazuli and diamond dial. It is a masterpiece of the firm’s creativity, still after nearly 40 years a modern piece to enjoy every day.

  • 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.
