    The present bracelet watch, cased in white gold and set with diamonds, represents Piaget's mastery in jewelry time pieces. The dial is concealed by a hinged cover featuring two beautifully rendered flowers. The flower petals are carefully engraved with chase work to provide texture and a life-like appearance. The stamens and carpels on each flower are set with brilliant-cut diamonds, the largest of which weights approximately 0.60 carats. The leaves are further set with brilliant-cut diamonds, adding flair to the watch. The meshed bracelet adds contrast to the dial, giving the watch a very unique look.

    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.
