  • Catalogue Essay

    According to the Archives of Piaget, the present watch was manufactured in 1973 with opal dial and 44 marquise-cut diamonds for a total of approx. 4.7 ct.

    A refined and attractive example of watchmaking from the '70s, the present watch is defined by materials and textures, rather than by graphic elements, a trend typical of the time. The mesmerizing opal dial appears slightly different according to how the light hits it, and the textured bracelet seems to nod to this very characteristic. The piece final and most impressive detail is given by the bezel fitted with a double row of marquise-cut diamonds, 22 for each row.

  • 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.
