Celebrating its 150th anniversary, Piaget is a Swiss brand with a rich history deeply intertwined with watchmaking excellence. Established in 1874 by Georges Edouard Piaget, the brand initially specialized in crafting precision watch movements before transitioning into a renowned watchmaker. In the mid-20th century, Piaget made waves by introducing ultra-thin movements, setting records with Caliber 9P in 1957 and the world’s thinnest automatic movement, Caliber 12P, in 1960. Beyond technical prowess, Piaget seamlessly blends Swiss precision with artistic innovation, particularly in high-jewelry watches. Its iconic timepieces like the Altiplano, Possession, and Polo reflect the brand’s commitment to pushing boundaries. The present 18k white-gold watch is a testament to Piaget’s dedication to pushing the limits of creativity and craftsmanship. Standing out as a true gem, its distinguishing feature lies in its rare dual time-zone complications, a captivating innovation that adds a layer of practicality to its aesthetic. The dial, adorned with a magnificent engine-turned guilloché decoration, serves as a canvas for the dual time complications. Within this intricate design, two different dials for two distinct timings coexist. The silver and black dials, both boasting unmistakably Breguet-style numerals, create a harmonious balance of aesthetics and functionality. The bezel, adorned with pyramidal motifs, integrates two thin crowns at 3 and 9 o’clock, allowing precise adjustment of the dual time zones. However, what elevates this timepiece is the prestigious Asprey signature on the dial. Since 1847, Asprey, nestled on 167 New Bond Street in London, has been synonymous with luxury, having supplied watches to Middle Eastern royalty from renowned brands like Rolex, Patek Philippe, and, notably, Piaget. This watch, presented in excellent condition, is a rare find with its dual time complications and the distinguished Asprey signature. Its appealing design, two distinct movements, further combining a textured dial and case, makes it a true collector’s item.
