At the 2019 Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, Piaget showcases its in-house savoir-faire with exceptional gold timepieces and new decorative techniques.

At Piaget, gold is symbolic of Maison’s in-house expertise that combines tradition and innovation with a unique creative approach. In the Piaget gold-working atelier in Plan-Les-Ouates, Geneva, the mastery and know-how required to create over a hundred different types of gold bracelets reside in the hands of our in house craftsmen. In all its forms, whether in a watch bracelet with multiple sleek links or in a supple strap woven from a single threadlike wire, gold is handled with a light, versatile touch that emphasizes the pleasure and bright sensuality of wearing this precious material.

A textured Milanese mesh cuff draws the eye in this year’s headline Possession model. The supple and luxurious gold mesh bracelet is worked by hand to impart a textured finish, which is paired with an iridescent mother-of-pearl dial and a halo of diamonds on the emblematic rotating bezel.
