From the 1960s onwards, merging watchmaking and jewellery gave Piaget an opportunity to create models combining gold with hard stones. In the feminine universe, ultra-thin calibres and jewellery watches were joined by bracelets showcasing extremely elaborate expertise. This Traditionnelle Ovale watch represents a fascinating distillation of this approach, with its silver-toned oval dial enhanced by a row of diamonds on the bezel and, above all, by the craftsmanship lavished on the gold bracelet. The latter is hand-engraved with a “palace” motif and exudes an iridescent effect, much like a raw silk ribbon forming a golden fabric wrapped around the wrist.
