A exemplary example of Piaget's expert ability to create not only a horological masterpiece but a beautiful piece of jewellery. 

This rare mid-century (C.1970's) Piaget cuff watch has a woven 18k yellow gold strap and malachite face. This piece of art attaches with a push clasp and has one figure eight safety lock. Since the creation of this model Piaget has re-purchased and archived them into their own personal collection, thus making this particular watch rare and highly collectible amongst watch aficionados. 

"Another motto that has defined the history of Piaget was coined by Valentin Piaget when he asked Maison's designers to "do what has never been done before." 

This instruction is what caused a sensation in 1963 when the first watches with ornamental stones set into the dial were released. This was explored further with the era-defining and vibrantly colorful "21st Century Collection". 

It was these glamorous and daring designs that attracted the attention of some of the brightest shining stars of the time like Jackie Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, and Sophia Loren. This display of artistry is also what laid the foundations for great friendships with artists, beginning with Salvador Dalí in 1967." - Piaget Website
