The Piaget Polo FortyFive Lady Watch takes the inspiration from the previous timepieces in the collection. The sporty-chic details that you can see for this watch allows for elegance, femininity, and comfort, enhanced with a delicate set of diamonds that allow you to easily flow to the evening. This watch is on the wrist every moment of your day, and the pink-gold is stunning and catches the eye with the added sparkle of the diamond set bezel.
Georges Edouard Piaget started his first workshop on his family’s farm in the Swiss village of La Cote-aux-Fees, in 1874. It was in this workshop that he began creating high-precision movements for prestigious watch companies, and it was in this way that his business developed, quite quickly. His son, Timothee, took over the business in 1911; and it was at that time that the company began producing wrist watches – branching out from the movements that it had been producing, since its’ inception. Gerald and Valentin (Georges’ grandsons) registered (and trademarked) the brand in 1943, when they started producing their own creations – as they’ve done ever since. It was as a result of this change that they opened a new factory in 1945, in the firm’s home village of La Cote-aux-Fees. Another member of the founding family, Yves, has been the president of the company since 1980. The brand’s headquarters is now in Geneva, Switzerland; with its’ parent company being luxury goods specialists, the Swiss Richemont group (since they purchased the company, in 1988).
Unveiling the most prestigious and delicate pieces, the new Piaget Couture Precieuse Collection took center stage at the Biennale des Antiquaires. Showcasing 59 exquisite jewelry pieces, and 12 high end time pieces, the brand emphasized feminine beauty through the collection with luxurious elegance.
The Piaget Gouverneur Moon Phase Tourbillon is not actually a new design, but a new version of the watch was introduced to the market in February of 2012. The original design first came onto the market in the 1990s. One of the most interesting features of the new design is that it has the thinnest shaped tourbillon that was ever created by any watchmaker. The case of the new is a circular 43 mm. The bezel is oval-shaped. The dial, center, and tourbillon are all circular shaped, along with the indicator for the phases of the moon. A”P” to signify Piaget is stamped into the design which rotates. The tourbillon is designed to be only 2.8 mm in thickness.
