Piaget Watches

Piaget are known around the world for their exceptionally high quality watches, including the Altiplano, Black Tie, Creative Collection, Dancer, Exceptional, Limelight, Miss Protocole, Polo, Possession Watches and the Upstream Watches. Luxury is key to all Piaget watches and this is well demonstrated in all the ranges available, such as theAltiplano, Black Tie, Creative Collection, Dancer, Exceptional, Limelight, Miss Protocole, Polo, Possession Watches and the Upstream Watches . The craftsmanship from Piaget is also tremendous, and with such high-tech innovation they have developed some of the most precise and highly regarded watches available today, for example the Altiplano, Black Tie, Creative Collection, Dancer, Exceptional, Limelight, Miss Protocole, Polo, Possession Watches and the Upstream Watches.

Piaget have been a key watch maker since 1874 and hold a key position in the luxury trades industry. The niche they occupy is very small and was created soley by Piaget; they only produce high end watches of exceptional quality that have been hand-crafted in 18 carat gold and platinum. As you can imagine Piaget also have a long reputation as a jewellers, their modern watches combine the two disciplines of jewellery making and watchmaking to produce some of the finest timepieces in the world. The founder of Piaget used to state that you should "always do better than necessary" and the company was built upon this principle. La Côte-aux-Fées is where Piaget are based, they have a mixture of traditional workshops and high quality manufacturing equipment to ensure that the components they craft for their watches are of the highest technical quality yet can be assembled using age old horological techniques.

The art of watch "dressing" is of vital importance for obvious reasons... the watch must be adorned with some of the finest jewels in existence and attention must be paid to the slightest detail. As every Piaget watch is unique in its 18-carat gold or platinum coat and all watches are crafted by hand it is important to Piaget to employ some of the most exceptional crafts-people in the industry. Piaget has found means of balancing its worldwide distribution by pursuing two distinct yet complementary goals: on the one hand, highly selective distribution in accordance with its own demanding quality criteria; and, on the other, a limited number of strategically located boutiques under its own name, superb showcases for effectively projecting the Piaget image. From the beginning, Piaget chose to deal with the world's most prestigious watch making and jewellery sales outlets, with a view to building a genuine partnership based upon mutual respect and recognition. Despite a wide geographical presence in over forty countries, Piaget has developed a selective and cohesive distribution network through 900 points of sale by consistently choosing as partners the finest watch making and jewellery specialists.

The exclusive nature of the companies movements is further emphasised by the unique style of the cases and bracelets in 18-carat gold or platinum, the only raw materials Piaget allows to enter its workshops. The slimness of its movements enabled Piaget to become a pioneer in the realm of watches embellished with gemstones, using lapis lazuli, coral, mother-of-pearl, tiger's eye and onyx in an amazing symphony of dials which appear to customers increasingly eager for colour and variety. Then came the launch of Haute-Joaillerie watches, confirming PIAGET's creativity and originality and earning it the coveted title of "the jeweller of watch making".
