Piaget is a recognized name in the watch industry, more so by the most prominent names in the field than most watch aficionados and experts. While the wide-ranging designs of Piaget’s cases and dials garner loyalty from different groups of people, the brand’s true strength lies within the timepieces that it has been creating for more than 30 years. Piaget is one of the most important manufacturers of movements and components for Swiss watches, which speaks a great deal considering “Swiss-made” are the watchmaking cream of the crop. In the past 10 years, the key focus of the brand has been the development of new and beautiful movements including the calibers Tourbillon, Tourbillon Relatif, Quantième Perpétuel and Flyback Chronograph, all engineered and designed in accordance with Piaget’s signature “thin movement” tradition. Most of Piaget’s pieces have see through open dials or clear case backs to show off the brand’s “hidden” ingenuity.
