  • Catalogue Essay

    The present watch is a typical and impressive example of the "Manchette" model launched in the early 1970s. These watches were characterized by their large bracelets, forming a cone when worn, and their unusual dial materials. This example features a beautiful lapis lazuli dial. Furthermore the back of the watch features a royal crown and the initial NS. In the 1970’s, while other brands were focusing on sports watches, Piaget carved its own niche, producing fashionable dress and jewellery watches known for their extravagant style and exquisite design and composed of fine metals and glittering jewels.Offered in exceptional original condition the watch is still accompanied by its fitted Piaget presentation box.

  • 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.
