  • Catalogue Essay

    It seems as if Piaget appealed to the texture and appearance of exotic skins for the inspiration of this time piece. The watch features a diamond pavé-set dial that is reminiscent of sting ray leather, perfectly contrasting with the onyx dial, and further highlighted by the diamond-set bezel. Finally, the white gold bracelet is particularly unique, the textured pattern rendered to look like alligator skin.

  • Artist Biography

    Piaget

    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.
