  • Catalogue Essay

    Robust and incredibly eye-catching, the present watch is a very typical design from the early 1970's featuring a yellow gold bracelet and alternating lapis lazuli and jade panels. In 1970, the world saw the return of extravagant cuff bracelets with Piaget leading the dis-creative market. These bracelets are embellished with a variety of stones ranging from lapis lazuli, jade, turquoise and onyx. Piaget alone personified all the values that haute couture embodies in the fashion world. The present example is rarer still, and has a very unusual openwork filigree design instead of the more commonly known gold nugget-formed bracelet.

  • 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.
