In the book “Piaget, Horlogers et Joailliers depuis 1874” is possible to read that ’The Piaget style developed over a period of twenty years, between the late 1950s and the 1970s. This period brought by a creative breath that seemed unlimited. Gold and color are in osmosis, like an imprint indelible on new paths.’ Gold, color and extravagance are the basis of much of Piaget’s production and are the main essence of this wonderful jewel watch offered here at auction. An excellent demonstration of skill of the goldsmiths of the Swiss brand, this Manchette, realized in 18k yellow gold, preserved in astonishing conditions, presents the best known “bark” decoration further enhanced by the hard stones of lapis lazuli and nephrite jade, considered for millennia being a powerful lucky charm. Once closed, this jewel takes on a conical shape that adapts flawlessly to the female wrist, wrapping it delicately and letting its elegance and refinement release.
