bout Replica Watch Piaget
Since its founding in 1874, Piaget has been cultivating the spirit of luxury by fostering creativity, concern for detail, as well as totally integrated watchmaking and jewellery know-how. Originally specialising in the development and production of watch movements, the company extended its know-how to jewellery in order to launch its first jewellery-watch collections in the 1960s. Demonstrating a rare aptitude for regularly surpassing itself, Piaget excels in all that is rare, precious and exceptional. Whether in creating the thinnest automatic movement or the most expensive watch in the world, Piaget dedicates the full force of its watch- and jewellery-making competence to rising to each new challenge. “Always do better than necessary” was the founder’s motto, and the guiding principle that still prevails in the workshops of La C?te-aux-F?es where the Piaget movements are crafted, or in the Plan-les-Ouates Manufacture in Geneva where the gold cases and bracelets, often set with precious stones, are patiently fashioned. Piaget captures the spirit of the times and its creations are signs of a timeless quest for technical mastery, driven by audacity, expertise and imagination.
