ALL PIAGET WATCHES MODELS
All About Piaget Watches
Piaget is part of a select group of high-end and exclusive luxury brands that excel in two distinct traditions: jewelry design and watchmaking. It is a fascinating story of growth from a small family farm to the premier brand status, achieving several milestones on the way.
Piaget watches are known for being among the first ultra-thin movements and timepieces. Since 1957, the ultra-thin Piaget watches have enjoyed an unrivaled legacy in terms of product as well as mechanics. Among the comprehensive range of the company's in-house mechanical movements, the majority are ultra-thin calibers including some world record holders.
Piaget has been a member of Richemont Group since 1988, with two fully integrated manufacturers: one in Plan-Les-Oates near Geneva, and another in La Côte-aux-Fees in Jura. The iconic watchmaker-jeweler brand was founded in 1874 by Georges Édouard Piaget in La Côte-aux-Fees in the Swiss Jura region. As a producer of precision mechanical movements, his family workshop supplied high-quality mechanisms to renowned watchmakers.
In 1957, the company introduced the 9P, an ultra-thin hand-wound mechanical movement. In Geneva, the first Piaget watch boutique opened in 1959. The first Piaget jewelry collections were also unveiled this year. This crucial move also aided the company's exploration of the high-jewelry watch market. Simultaneously, the Piaget Watch Corporation was founded in New York to introduce the luxury brand to America. The first ultra-thin automatic mechanical caliber 12P was introduced by the brand in 1961.
From its Altiplano, Polo, Black Tie, Possession, Limelight Gala Jewelry, and High Jewelry lines, the premium Swiss brand offers a wide range of exquisite timepieces. Piaget watches are known for their exceptional levels of precision, in-depth knowledge, imaginative spirit, and uncompromising adherence to the established crafting techniques and skills. Furthermore, these timepieces feature exceptional embellishments and finishes. Prices for Piaget watches start at over S$ 14,000 for men's watches and S$ 6,000 for women' timepieces.
Altiplano offers timepieces for both men and women, with an impressive selection of various configurations and styles. Most of these timepieces are made from 18-carat gold. This remarkable collection also includes gem-set watches and models with plain, skeleton, hard-stone and artistic dials. An off-centred dial design is another attractive design innovation. Slenderness is a common attribute of all these timepieces. This essential characteristic is visible everywhere: case, movement, hands and indexes.
A sensational timepiece from this comprehensive collection is Altiplano Ultimate Concept, the thinnest hand-wound mechanical watch in the world. This range consists of Time-only, Date and Ultra-thin tourbillon models.
Piaget Black Tie
The Black Tie series features manly wrist watches that truly reflect the famed Swiss Maison's watchmaking skill. Intricate gold watches, along with a few spectacular diamond-set models, are a big feature of this collection. These watches have a variety of embellishments and finishes, including dual time zones, perpetual calendars, power reserve indicators, flying tourbillon, moon phase, and minute repeaters.
The Black Tie line, which is exclusively for males, features some amazing case shapes such as inverted tonneau, cushion, and round-oval. The features of the inner mechanisms may be seen from the front side of certain of these watches, which have an open-worked display style. A line of time-only wristwatches inspired by Andy Warhol's antique Piaget watch is also included in the collection.
This stunning collection is a continuation of Piaget's Possession jewelry collection. This collection includes wristwatches and cuff watches, as well as other ultra-feminine designs. These thin watches range in diameter from 29 mm to 34 mm and are made of 18-carat gold or stainless steel. Gems might be bezel-set, dial-set, or full-set on the majority of these clocks.
Burnished or mother-of-pearl dials with diamond indicators, completely paved or semi-precious-stone dials are among the dial variations available in the line. These quartz watches have rotational bezels with or without diamond settings, drawing influence from the Possession spinning rings. Interchangeable alligator leather bands come included on the vast majority of these wristwatches.
Piaget Limelight Gala
Piaget began their career as a watchmaker before branching out into jewelry in the mid-twentieth century. At this time, it debuted its ultra-thin movement, a feat Piaget has since surpassed by a large margin. The Limelight Gala includes quartz, self-winding and hand-wound watches. Adorned with precious stones, these bold and vibrant wristwatches feature alluring dial designs. Made from 18-carat gold, these watches are available with case diameters typically ranging from 26 mm to 32 mm. Blending horology art and jewelry design, this feminine collection offers wristwatches with metal bracelets, alligator straps or satin bands.
Piaget Jewelry and High Jewelry watches
These sparkling creations are the perfect examples to discover the extensive manufacturing capabilities of the Swiss Maison, which proudly carries the most distinguished traditions and know-how in jewelry and watchmaking. Both collections offer gem-set versions of several Piaget watch models. Depending upon the intricacy of gold work and diamond-setting, these sparkling timepieces have been categorized under the Jewelry and the High Jewelry categories.
Piaget is a venerable company with immense expertise in creating incredible wristwatches and dazzling jewelry pieces. The majority of their timepieces feature cases made from noble materials like Gold and platinum. The luxury brand also uses stainless steel and titanium for manufacturing some watch models. Its award-winning and world-record holder watch Altiplano Ultimate Concept features a cobalt-alloy case.
Piaget has been known for its capability to manufacture a wide range of dials using mother-of-pearl or hard-stones like jade, lapis lazuli, malachite, onyx, opal, ruby and turquoise. The brand also offers dazzling gem-set dials as well as extremely beautiful artistic dials incorporating traditional techniques like gold lacework, marquetry, enameling and miniature painting.
Along with their unmatchable selection of dials, Piaget also offers finely crafted cases with distinct shapes. Piaget's timepieces have ornamental and Haute Horlogerie finishing techniques that have been around for a long time. Some notable decorative techniques used with Piaget’s mechanical watch movements are blued screws, Circular Cotes de Genève, circular-graining, believing and satin-brushed sunburst motifs. Some self-winding watch models feature gold or platinum oscillating weights, stamped with the Piaget coat of arms.
