Piaget brand was born in 1874 from the dream of Georges Edouard Piaget: dedicating itself to pocket watches and the manufacture of high-precision movements commissioned by famous brands, the name Piaget soon exceeds the borders of the Canton of Neuchâtel. In 1911, Timothée Piaget, the son of Georges Piaget, took over the family firm and from that moment on the policy was focused on the production of wristwatches. They immediately centralized their efforts and ideas in the creation of very thin timepieces, setting new records as the world’s thinnest simple or complicated watches, and this brought to the manufacturing, in 1957 at La Côte-aux-Fées, of the Calibre 9P, the first ultra-thin (2 mm), hand-wound mechanical movement. This special caliber is the one equipped on the special and precious bracelet watch sold in this auction. Completely manufactured in yellow gold, this sparkling wristwatch is in very nice condition of preservation and has a bracelet set with diamonds that form an elegant wave motif capable of giving movement to the object. The same motif is reproduced on the bezel, which is also composed of diamonds and yellow gold, which surrounds an immaculate light colored mother-of-pearl dial decorated with 4 baguette diamonds, 8 thin black indices and the delicate hands, also black.
