According to the Archives of Piaget, the present watch was manufactured in 1968.
The present watch and lapel are impressive examples for Piaget's highly jewelled timepieces, underlining the firm's coveted title of "the jeweller of watch making".
Preserved in excellent overall condition, the appeal is further enhanced by the matching cufflinks and tie-buttons in original fitted case, made by special order by the renowned jeweller H.L. Wilm in Hamburg.
Founded in 1874 by Georges Piaget in La Côte-aux-Fées, Switzerland, the company opened its first showroom at 40, rue du Rhône, Geneva, in 1959. Piaget rapidly became the specialist for the world's thinnest watches and the unique style of cases and bracelets in 18K gold or platinum, the only case materials the firm allows to enter its workshops. The company is a pioneer in the realm of watches embellished with gemstones, using lapis lazuli, coral, mother-of-pearl, tiger's eye and onyx in an amazing symphony of dials which appeal to customers increasingly eager for colour and variety.
