Why We Love it

There’s nothing more classic and appealing than a simple dress watch.

Though to be fair, when we say ‘simple’, we mean ‘uncomplicated’ — not unattractive!

The 20th century saw a plethora of such watches hit the market. Generally available on leather straps and featuring two or three hands, these reliable wristwatches kept time during the classiest decades for the past 100 years. However, some were more innovative than others.

Take this exquisite piece from Piaget, specialists in ultra-thin watchmaking — seamlessly machined such that there’s no perceivable break from watch head to bracelet, it’s as much akin to a piece of jewelry as it is to a more traditional wristwatch.

Housed in a 24mm 18K yellow gold case with a fantastic, integrated 'bamboo' yellow gold bracelet with a signed clasp and bark finish throughout, this Emperador features a sunburst champagne dial with a matching black 'pencil’ handset, a sapphire crystal, a back-wind crown and an entirely 1980s-appropriate quartz movement within.

The most striking quality about this timepiece is its heft. Most watches with integrated bracelets from this period feature a similar attention-to-detail in regard to finish and design, even down to the bracelet. This piece however features a substantial bracelet — much thicker, wider and bolder than other bracelets seen on its peers. It honestly, catches you off guard; and that's a good thing.

Imagine the looks of curiosity — and envy — that you’ll stir up when rocking this bold Piaget at a cocktail party or during Sunday brunch.

With its eye-catching design, and awesome bracelet finish, this is not only a standout piece ... it's a statement piece.

Brand Story

+
Piaget is perhaps the foremost player in ultra-thin watches and watch movements in the world. Established in 1874 in Geneva and currently under the Richemont Group umbrella, the maison began producing wristwatch movements in 1911, manufacturing the Calibre 9P, its first ultra-thin, hand-wound mechanical movement, in 1957.

In 1960, Piaget released the Calibre 12P, the thinnest automatic movement in the world at the time, at just 2.3mm. It fitted many of its miniature movements into innovative timepieces hidden in coins, brooches, and cufflinks, becoming known equally for its jewelry.

The Piaget Altiplano Ultimate, released as a concept in 2018, became a full production model in 2020. At just 2mm thick, it took the record for thinnest watch on Earth. Today, Piaget continues to innovate in the realm of ultra-thin watchmaking, creating ultra-thin tourbillons, retrograde movements, and more.
