Collectors consider the 1970s as Piaget’s era of superb creativity and unbounded designs. At the beginning of that decade introduced the Beta 21 movement of which Piaget was one of the proponents. The result was a massive watch realized in various materials and versions. It was in full 18k yellow gold and the massive triple stepped case has this unusual shape to house the large rectangular movement, exactly like the one Andy Warhol felt in love with and he had as one of the most recognizable and characteristic watches in his collection. In 2015 Piaget updated the timeless design in small steps but left the overall appearance recognizable. Piaget equipped it with an automatic movement and presented the new 5-stepped Black Tie with different significant stone dials in white, yellow or rose gold: Lapis Lazuli, Onyx, Meteorite, Jade and Malachite, the reason Piaget holds the title Masters of Stone since 1963. This particular lot is in full 18 kt yellow gold and presents the rarest version of dials: the Jade. This dial has a particular green color with the brand name printed at 12 o’clock and the hands in the middle. The whole watch is preserved in a exceptional and appealing conditions.
