Piaget was founded in 1874 by Georges Piaget in the village of La Côte-aux-Fées, France. In 1874, Georges Edouard Piaget set up his first workshop on the family farm, situated in the small village of La Côte-aux-Fées in the Swiss Jura mountains. Situated in the Neuchâtel region, the company was dedicated to crafting pocket watches and high-precision clock movements for prestigious brands. Piaget reached the top in manufacturing elegant and sophisticated jewelry watches for both man and lady’s. 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 a very nice condition of preservation. The 34 mm perfectly circular case with deep hallmarks shows that this case was probably never polished and the dial is simply incredible. The onyx chapter ring with diamonds for the hour markers is perfect with no cracks and stands out in a unique way thanks to the circular pavè set with cut diamonds that match perfectly with the diamond-set cut bezel. The dauphine handset is extremely legible, and does not present any oxidation.
