When hard stone gives way to gold on the Piaget dial

Description

Piaget's reputation in watchmaking is well established. Referred to as the “jeweler of watchmaking”, Piaget embodies creativity and reliability. Looking like a Tank, a quartz movement, Piaget offers a watch with assertive lines under the reference 74101.

A gold case with triple gadroons, enhanced by an also gold dial whose hours are indicated by stick indexes. Nothing disturbs the harmony of the case, not even the winder, hidden on the back. A model which could appear precious, in particular by the golden reflections offered by the dial but which, once on the wrist, appears quite sporty. Perhaps by its dimensions and its fairly flat case which sits on the wrist. Despite everything, and this is why we love Piaget, this watch retains its elegance.

Why did Françoise choose it?

Françoise adores Piaget, and would like to help her regain the interest that this House deserves! Although she would like to be able to wear the jewelry from the 1970s, Françoise is particularly fond of the “simpler” Piagets. She loves the subtle mix between discretion and extravagance.

This rectangular watch seems to combine these two characteristics because it is quite refined but still knows how to stand out.

A watch that can be worn daily, practical thanks to its quartz movement, easily portable thanks to its unique golden hue.

History

Between the end of the 1950s and the end of the 1970s, the Piaget style reached its peak. A highly creative period where gold, the only material used for watches from 1957, and colors harmonize. The dial becomes the main element of the creation, the one towards which all eyes should be drawn. Thus, the hard stone imposes itself, allowing its lively palette of colors, its nuances, its reflections, its personality to vibrate: lapis lazuli, jade, tiger's eye, coral, turquoise, onyx, opal, etc. A palette of bright and nuanced colors. Watches with clean lines that let color speak for themselves. Jewelry watches described as “haute-couture creations” ( Journal de Genève , April 15, 1970).
