BLACK TIE VINTAGE WATCH

Back in the 1950s Piaget created a very distinctive watchcase that defied conventions with its unique cushion-shape. It was later owned by Andy Warhol, emblematic and cultural figure of an era. In 2014, for the Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris, Piaget paid tribute to its daring spirit by recreating three timepieces with hardstone dials, creatively revisiting its heritage to create a contemporary look.  

 

For the seventh edition of Only Watch, Piaget introduces a yellow gold Black Tie Vintage Inspiration piece with the same aesthetic codes but featuring a hard stone dial in brown pietersite that recalls this year’s color theme. Known as the Tempest Stone with its highly charged energy, Pietersite is a powerful protection stone, especially against the elements. A special “Only Watch 2017 – Unique Piece” engraving on the back of case reaffirms the uniqueness of this elegant creation.          

                                                                                                       

“For this creation, the maison has taken inspiration from an iconic era that powerfully expresses the Piaget look, a style that continues to exercise an inimitably bold appeal today through the beauty of its unconventional shapes and audacious colours.” – Chabi Nouri, Piaget CEO
