  • Catalogue Essay

    Piaget has not only designed the most amazing wristwatches and bangle watches but has also made in smaller quantities very fine and rare dress watches for a clientele who wished to perpetuate a certain tradition and who used to wear these watches for very special occasions.
    The present example forged of white gold is lavishly set with 110 diamonds (5.93ct) and 174 baguette sapphires (12ct) centred by a mother of pearl and diamond dial.
    Presented in overall excellent condition and the case back still retaining its blue factory seal, this pendant watch amazes with its beauty and timeless design.

  • 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.
