Diamonds at the heart of the mechanical movement
An alchemist of fine movements and the most dazzling diamonds, Piaget combines its mastery of Haute Horlogerie and High Jewellery into stunning timepieces that harmoniously blend the two arts. These exacting crafts are practised at their two Manufactures: La Côte-aux-Fées for movements and Plan-les-Ouates for jewellery and cases. In 2005 Piaget caused a sensation by unveiling the first ever gem-set skeleton movement, encased in a model that beat a new record for slimness and was also equipped with a flying tourbillon, one of the most demanding horological complications. To this day, Piaget’s Manufacture is the only one that has the skills to gem-set the working components of an ultra-slim skeleton movement.
Piaget’s breathtaking mastery of its art led it to set the bar even higher in 2014 by unveiling the first-ever movement set with baguette-cut diamonds. This awe-inspiring movement has been entirely pavé-set on both faces, while its oscillating mass, the contours of its bridges and even some screws are also gem-set.
