George Edward Piaget, a hereditary farmer from the Swiss town La Côte-aux-Fées, the father of 14 children, was full of ambitious and far-reaching plans, when he was creating original Piaget watches – the pre-image of the world-wide popular brand – in his tiny workshop in the winter evenings. In distant 1874 actively encouraging sons to work the master could create such perfect mechanisms that they became popular all around Switzerland. When he got older, he gave his business to his son, who keeping up with time reoriented the production and since 1911 began production of wrist watches. Grandchildren of Piaget did their best for the family business to develop successfully: they registered a Piaget trade mark and then opened a factory, which produced watches and brought their products to the international level.
To take an elite position in the world of high watch art it is important to be able to impress tempted experts, so it is necessary to create unrivalled, exclusive watches. Piaget understood that it is not enough to use only precious metals in the products, make mechanisms reliable – there were enough of such watches. That one, who will wish to buy authentic Piaget watches, must receive an accessory that has an unsurpassed charisma and its own DNA. And the solution was found: first, to compensate the fact that the accent has been made on the quality of the mechanism for many years, a great attention was paid to design of the watches. The company succeeded in both variants. In 1960 the thinnest mechanism with automatic oscillator with the width not more than 2,3 mm produced by the manufacture was registered in the Guinness Records. And the progress in the design was also apparent – luxurious Piaget watches are impossible to associate with daily routine and monotony, dynamics, artistic features, chic and elegance are characteristic of them. The collection of sportive watches Polo is demonstrative in this case, it was released in 1979 and became so demanded that the company returned it several times improving it corresponding with the requirements of time. The ability to fill in the super-thin case with an enormous number of functions and by doing so keep the accuracy of movement and reliability of the mechanism impresses in new models. There is a chronograph with flyback function, there are minute counters at the position of “3 o’clock”, GMT indicator on the place of 9 o’clock and a small second hand is put at the position of “6 o’clock” in the model with golden case of diameter of 45 mm. All of them together form a beautiful trefoil, the aperture with date indicator is over it. The women watches of this model look chic and aristocratic, the bezel of which is adorned with diamonds and golden hour indices with rubies, all this naturally influences the price of wrist watches Piaget, which are worn by singer Rihanna with pleasure.
And Hollywood stars like Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Matthew McConaughey prefer a sign Altiplano collection due to which a brave and unexpected solution was patented. To preserve an exclusively thin case the details, which used to be mounted on the plate, are mounted to the back case of the watch. The model of 2014 is provided with the case 3.65 mm in height and it is one more world record. And the mechanism of the base of 600P caliber is equipped with the world’s thinnest tourbillion. The outside part of the question is not less significant and if you decided to buy genuine Piaget watches for a reasonable price, you should know: a team of artists, engravers and designers has been working on their design. Not in vain the half of the staff consisting of 1,000 employees deals with the thing that will amaze with the exquisite and status look of the watch. The courageous experiments with the form amaze those ones, who have chosen exclusive wrist Piaget watches for them recently. Jewelry Altiplano skeletons and double-side golden cuff-watch with diamonds Extremely are especially good. Once the founder of the brand George Piaget used to teach his sons: it is necessary to give the customer more than he expects. This principle is followed by the manufacture today too.
