Piaget Watches

Brief Brand History for :

In 1874, Georges Eduoard Piaget founded his eponymous company on his family farm in La Côte-aux-Fées, Switzerland. In the early years of the business, Piaget focussed on the production of precise pocket watch and clock movements. When Georges Piaget’s son, Timothée, inherited his family’s business in 1911, the brand shifted its focus to the production of wristwatches. Under the direction of the third generation of the Piaget family, the company began to produce ultra-thin movements and watches. In 1957, Piaget released the two millimeter, handwound Caliber 9P. Three years later, the maison produced the thinnest automatic caliber in the world: the 2.3 millimeter thick 12P. The late ‘50s also saw the production of high jewelry pieces that coincided with the establishment of a Geneva boutique. In the ‘60s, Piaget began to use vibrant, ornamental stones in its dials. The glamor of these watches drew celebrities like Jackie Kennedy and Elizabeth Taylor to the brand. Piaget first released its more casual, sporty Polo Collection in 1979. In 1988, Piaget was acquired by Richemont. In the 1990s, the company launched the Possession, Limelight, and Altiplano Collections and relaunched the Emperador Collection. More recently, Piaget has stayed true to its history in innovative thinness; the two millimeter thick Altiplano Ultimate Concept watch held the record for the thinnest mechanical watch for several years.
