Ethereally elegant skeleton watches for men and for women
From the first sketch to the final finish, a skeleton watch – whether a man’s or a lady’s model – demands infinite attention to every last detail so that none of the ethereal aesthetic appeal is lost, despite the flawless functionality of the watch. -+
When watchmaking joins forces with engraving
Since the 1970s, Piaget’s Manufacture has been calling on the combined virtuosity of its best watchmakers and engravers to master the highly demanding art of crafting skeleton watches. This impressive expertise has given birth to movements of the most exquisite fineness, both with and without complications, manual or self-winding. These luxurious mechanical openwork embroideries have set numerous records in thinness, sometimes because of their movement but also with the actual men’s or lady’s skeleton watch itself.
Constant in its quest to ‘Always do better than necessary’, Piaget was the first to gem-set the working parts of a skeleton movement. As if being the only Manufacture to master this exacting art on ultra-thin skeleton watches was not enough, it went even further and rewrote the rules by setting baguette-cut diamonds into the mechanical openwork – on both the bridge side and the display side! The world of Haute Horlogerie had never seen such consummate craftsmanship before. The Manufacture went on to perform another totally unprecedented feat in 2014, showing magnificent creative daring by enamelling the plate of an ultra-slim skeleton movement – and breaking another record for thinness in the process.
