Piaget is famously recognized for their elaborate wristwatch and bangle designs, but they also mastered the integration of their high-quality, in-house produced wristwatches into stunning pieces of jewelry. The present necklace with pendant is full-fledged one of these audacious creations. These types of watches were intended for a young and avant-garde clientele and were characterized by their asymmetric shapes, large bracelets and the use of precious stones. The present necklace with pendant watch uses tiger’s eye for the dial, and is adorned with spherical cabochon tiger eye accents. In 18-karat yellow gold, the hand-crafted metalwork used throughout is of particularly high quality. Offered in excellent overall conditions, this specimen confirms Piaget’s creativity and originality, earning it the coveted title of “the jeweler of watch making”. A very elegant example of such type of necklace watch is illustrated in Montres et Merveilles, 200 créations rares provenant du Musée de l’Horlogerie de Genève et des Collections Privées Piaget, p. 73.
