  • Catalogue Essay

    In the 1960s and 1970s, Yves G. Piaget personally visited the Middle East and Asia to receive commissions from the firm's most esteemed clients. A large number of these collectors were women. Piaget specially created many unique lady's pieces, the dials ranging from malachite to rubellite, the bezel adorned with diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires. The present watch is such an example. The beautiful textured white gold wristwatch is complemented by the diamond and emerald-set bezel, a similar example of which is proudly displayed in Piaget, by Cologni, Negretti and Nencini. The watch is furthermore in unused condition.

  • 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.
