  • Catalogue Essay

    Piaget was a brand of choice for chic and sophisticated jet-setters of the 1970s. A specialist in the manufacture of ultra-thin mechanical movements, Piaget possessed unique skills that allowed them to use precious hard stones throughout their creations, while keeping their timepieces thin and well proportioned. The brand created daring and imaginative timepieces that could be converted into a lapel watch, pedant and bracelet, among other accessories. These were adorned with gemstones and a plethora of hard stones such as lapis lazuli, coral, or tiger's eye, like the present timepiece.

    The present example is a superb representation of Piaget’s extravagance. This versatile pendant watch is adorned with a silky and lustrous tiger’s eye dial and cabochons on the chain, and is fitting for any chic and elegant event.

  • 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.
