Originally focused on the development and manufacturing of movements, Piaget began making watches under its own name in 1943, about 70 years after its foundation in Côte-aux-Fées by the will of Georges Edouard Piaget in 1874. They immediately centralized their efforts and ideas in the creation of very thin watches, setting new records as the world’s thinnest simple or complicated watches, with special features like visible dials and engines, also known as skeletonized watches, developing the spirit of luxury in an atmosphere of creativity, attention to detail, and fully integrated expertise that would have characterized them forever. The present 18k yellow-gold integrated bracelet wristwatch is a real special piece thanks to its particular and really unusual dual time-zone complications which equips it. The two different dials offers a magnificent materials decoration for the two different timing: to make them better recognizable, one was made in a white mother-of-pearl and the other in black with Onyx material. This watch is one of the few known in this very good condition being an object of undoubted aesthetic value.
