Introduction to Piaget Watches: Top 3 Collections
Rooted in 1874, Piaget watches quickly became an authentic symbol of fine watchmaking and jewelry. George-Edouard Piaget was only 19 when he founded the workshop to manufacture top-notch components and high precision movements.
“Always do better than necessary.”
This was George’s motto that helped him permeate the company and becoming the most prestigious brand in Switzerland. The company took a revolutionary turn in the twenties under the leadership of George-Edouard’s son, Timothee Piaget. His remarkable vision led to the transformation of a small company into the manufacturer of luxury watches to be worn at any time.
Today, Piaget is adopted by celebrities around the globe for its versatility and distinctive design. Piaget is referred to as the marriage of gold and precious gems. This ever-bold brand holds a glamorous history of 140 years of providing extravagant wristwatch collections.
Apart from the fine craftsmanship, Piaget watches feature the thinnest cases and purest jewels. This combination has set a standard in the watchmaking industry. Piaget has dazzled the watch enthusiasts with its top 3 collections, each of which radiates sophistication.
Piaget marked a milestone in the field of watchmaking by presenting the Piaget Altiplano to the world in 1957. With its slim and elegant construction, this watch is a symbol of high-degree performance and reliability.
Ultra-thin Horology: The slim silhouette of the Altiplano is combined with a large dial. It is equipped with a 20.5mm diameter dial plus an ultra-flat caliber less than 2.3mm in height. Moreover, the 12P automatic movement ensures the efficient performance of the wristwatch. Moreover, a micro-rotor made of 24K gold is employed to make this slim movement possible. Piaget has always been keen on innovation and, therefore, now uses 9P hand-wound movement for all watches in this collection.
Precious material for Case: The brand has ushered new designs for its timepieces, that too, by using only the finest materials such as gold and platinum in this collection. These watches are adorned with an aesthetic appeal due to creative cases. Large dials are embellished with stick indexes and slim hands.
Sophisticated Craftsmanship: Behind the sleek design of this collection lies the outstanding craftsmanship. It comes with all the sophisticated details like circular Geneva stripes, blued screws, bevelled bridges as well as a circular-grained main plate. Each watch is manufactured with the watchmaker’s specialized knowledge.
2: Limelight Gala:
Although there are tons of beautiful wristwatches out there, the Piaget Limelight Gala has continued to attract women with elegant jewelry watches since 1972. This iconic signature of vibrant femininity offers timeless elegance and glamour to the wearer.
A timepiece with history: This chic was first debuted in 1972 and resurrected by the brand in 2013. The new edition replaced the original model’s white gold strap with a satin one. Later in 2016, 18K pink and white gold were used to create a nice mesh bracelet.
Goes with every outfit: One loved feature is the right balance between glamour and practicality. The design is elegant enough to add grace to your wrist on your daily basis, yet glitzy enough to go with any formal dress. Therefore, you can easily switch from your daytime look to the evening one.
Tough: The meshwork is beautifully executed with toughness as well as elegance. The most-loved thing about the mesh is how beautifully it complements the diamond-embellished bezel and the elongated asymmetrical lugs. Moreover, the bracelet is comfortable and marks safety.
Fits any wrist: Another thing to appreciate about this Piaget Limelight Gala Collection is that the bracelet comes with an adjustable clasp. This means it can fit any wrist sizes without opting for customization.
Dazzling Diamonds: As they say, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.”
We surely get dazzled by the 62 diamonds embellishing the round bezel as well as the elongated lugs. These little 1.75 carats diamonds make head turns by the glamour they offer. This beautiful and tactile collection, Limelight Gala, talks for both preciousness and comfort.
The Piaget Polo has continued to evolve with the masculine grace since its debut in 1979. Made of solid gold, the first Polo was considered prestigious to wear in the 1980s. With the introduction of Piaget Polo S, the new version of the Polo, Piaget’s fanfare was remarkably increased. Today, these luxury steel watches radiate masculine elegance all day long.
The S: The Polo S is the improved version of Polo in which the S stands for steel, style, and the signature of this iconic brand. This model was a combination of perfection and sporty elegance to accompany you from morning to night.
Five Variations: This legendary collection is available in 5 variations that attract a younger and more casual audience. These models speak for versatility to celebrate every instant.
Two of these variations are Chronographs, which come with an automatic caliber 1160P movement. They are equipped with either blue or black dial, featuring the date at the 6 o’clock position. The other three versions are powered by an in-house automatic movement. The dial has a date display at 6 o’clock positions and comes in silver, blue, and a slate grey option.
Moreover, all the 5 models have brushed bezels that are complemented by polished stainless steel bracelets. To add on, they feature luminous markers and sapphire crystals as well as water-resistance up to 100 meters. The Polo S is definitely a game-changer that brings luxury to the owner and meanwhile pays homage to Piaget.
