Jewel watches represent a small but significant part of the history of watchmaking. The present Piaget is a combination of elegance, refinement and innovation, as well as a remarkable demonstration of skill. Fully realized in 18k white gold, this sparkling wristwatch is in very nice condition of preservation. The integrated bracelet has a woven texture that perfectly wraps the wrist. The 34 mm perfectly circular case with deep hallmarks shows that this case was probably never polished and the dial is simply incredible. The lapis lazuli outer part is perfect with no breaks and stands out in a unique way thanks to the square pavè set with 118 brilliant cut diamonds. The dauphine handset is extremely legible, and does not present any oxidation.
