  • Catalogue Essay

    Piaget was the leader in the 1960s and 1970s for combining avant-garde design and craftsmanship into their work. Recognized for integrating precious stones into their watches and jewelry, Piaget’s vintage timepieces remain to be amongst the most collectible and rare.

    The present example is a beautifully constructed bangle with a rope-like cord design, complimented by tiger’s eye cabochons throughout. The off-center placement of the dial gives this work of art an elegant touch, and compliments the chic tiger’s eye dial.

    This tastefully designed bracelet is well preserved and is a perfect example of how Piaget’s creativity and modern twist made them market leaders nearly 40 years ago.

  • 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.
