Lot Essay

According to the Archives of Piaget, the present watch was manufactured in 1970.

“Ultra-stylish and typically Piaget, the watchmaking equivalent of haute couture”, this is how Yves Piaget described Elizabeth Taylor’s requirement when she chose this model from the “Esclave” collection for herself in 1971. The same statement could equally be made today about the present watch, its bold sculptural asymmetry as chic, avant-garde and wearable as it always was. It is furthermore preserved in excellent overall condition, the rare jade dial flawless.

Elizabeth Taylor’s “Esclave” cuff watch, with jade dial, was sold by Christie’s New York, 14 December 2011, lot 235. It is now part of the Piaget Private Collection and illustrated in: Piaget, Watchmakers and Jewellers since 1874, Florence Müller, 2014, pp. 284-285.
