Piaget constantly rises to new challenges by pushing the limits of existing know-how in its two natural fields of expertise: watchmaking and jewellery. For its twin Manufactures respectively based in La Côte-aux-Fées and in Geneva, boldness means asserting independence, subtly playing with extravagance, exploring new paths and producing an array of innovative creations. Its creativity is eloquently expressed through novel ideas such as turning a watch into a fashion accessory with interchangeable wristbands, making coin-watches or crafting gemstone dials.
Manufacture Piaget, founded by Georges Edouard Piaget in 1874, in La Côte-aux-Fées at the heart of the Swiss Jura, cultivates the spirit of luxury in an atmosphere of creativity, attention to detail, and fully integrated expertise.Originally focused on the development and manufacturing of movements, Piaget began making watches under its own name in 1943, and in 1955 began to specialise in ultra-thin timepieces. Part of the Richemont Group, Piaget boasts twenty ultra-thin manufacture movements, and its timepieces regularly set new records as the world's thinnest simple or complicated watches.
