‘Earl of Time Gallery’ exhibited many classic products of Piaget, but since most products have a long history, editors cannot introduce them one by one, so we can only introduce them according to the characteristics of the product and referring to Piaget materials.
Piaget adhered to the spirit of leading the pioneers. As early as the early 1960s, it launched models with hard gemstone dials. The brilliant colors of the gemstones complemented the gold bracelet. More than thirty different gemstones are dazzling, and the matching chains and bracelets embody infinite creativity and precious precious craftsmanship. This dual quality combines ancient craftsmanship, the pursuit of avant-garde, and traditional watchmaking craftsmanship to achieve perfection. This is the Earl feature. This amazing miracle stems from a major feature of the brand, the ultra-thin movement. The 9P calibre made a stunning appearance at the Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Show in 1957, with a wide diameter and a thickness of only 2mm, bringing a new visual experience. Deserves to be a disruptive revolution in watchmaking.
Innovation in technology and appearance was first manifested in watches decorated with colored gemstone dials, and later sublimated in exquisite gold processing. Excellent quality and exquisite workmanship were reflected in unique works. The brand’s artisans continue to push the boundaries. They not only produced an exceptionally thin movement, and carved hard gems so that they are exactly the same. They perfectly fit the other parts of the watch, and they also gave the gold bracelet a soft and flexible characteristic like a fabric, witnessing Piaget’s professional skills It also established Piaget’s determination to become a leader in watchmaking and jewelry.
In China’s long history of art and culture, jadeite has a very special meaning, and its status is comparable to gold and diamonds in the Western world. Emerald is not only used to make exquisite objects and legendary figures, but also used by the royal family in the decoration of mausoleums. Emerald is a symbol of health, beauty and preciousness. At the same time, it also reflects the essence of Confucianism of wisdom, justice, compassion, modesty, and boldness. Opal is known for its iridescent sheen, and there are many legends about its composition that are extremely difficult to process. Opals have long been believed to be therapeutic. Opal is also a symbol of purity.
Turquoise has been used for jewelry making thousands of years ago, and is especially loved by Egyptians, and is believed to bring good luck and shelter. Among many ancient and modern cultures, turquoise is regarded as a stone of luck, which can bring good luck and has a sheltering effect. Its azure blue color is reminiscent of sky and water. The dark blue background is covered with pyrite, which outlines a dreamy starry sky. Lapis lazuli is one of the earliest gems used in jewelry making and decoration in ancient civilization. The ancient Egyptians and other people in the Middle East believed that lapis lazuli had the function of avoiding evil and driving demons. As one of the hardest and most difficult to process gemstones, the heart-shaped ruby stands out with its vibrant and passionate bright red color. Each gem contains a secret, with different shades. Piaget followed this feature to create exquisite works that combine elegance and uniqueness. Piaget is good at using color in a low-key and restrained way, while Piaget’s designers know how to maximize the charm of color, while the brand gold and silversmiths show superb craftsmanship.
Today, Piaget has become one of the few brands that inherit the craftsmanship of jewellery and chains. Its watch factory has a professional workshop to carefully store countless precious bracelets / bracelets samples, which has proved this professional skill. Succession from generation to generation. Through these exquisite works embodying Piaget’s rich cultural heritage, the Piaget brand’s exquisite craftsmanship can be inherited, such as this coral-lined gold bracelet, decorated with fine precious metal braided tassel, and like this long necklace, the precious Screen weaving technology. Piaget’s ingenious combination of colors, shapes and materials is amazing.
