Founded in 1874, Mr Georges-Édouard Piaget’s workshops supplied movements to some of the most prestigious watch brands. By the 1920s, Mr Piaget had become a creator of complete watches, finally placing his own name on a dial in 1943. By 1957, Piaget's stock in trade was cemented: innovative ultra-slim dress watches, a field in which it has set numerous world records over the years. Today’s range combines the technical mastery of the Altiplano with the 1980s exuberance of the Polo.
Innovation Through Isolation
Piaget’s ateliers are still to be found in La Côte-aux-Fées, a town 3,400ft above sea level that’s cut off by every brutal winter. Its rough climate and remoteness acted as Darwinian selection factors in the 19th century – if you were not self-sufficient during the winter, you did not survive. Meaning Piaget’s obsessive artisans had nothing to do, away from the summer’s dairy farming, but pursue absolute perfection. A surviving philosophy for the brand.
