  • Catalogue Essay

    Jean-Paul Gueit designed some sensational 'Esclave' or 'cuff watches' during the 60's and 70's for Piaget. Thanks to the tiny 9P and 12P mechanisms that were made available to him, he was at liberty to design spectacular jewellery watches with less focus on the watch itself but more on the overall impact of the design . This coincided perfectly with the fashionable use of semi-precious colourful stone dials with intricately woven mesh-link bracelets for the adoring fashion scene.

  • 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.
