Piaget Extremely Lady
At the 2019 SIHH, Piaget dressed its Extremely Lady with a “scales” decoration, a brand-new finish drawing its inspiration from the artisanal know-how of the Maison.
At Piaget, gold is symbolic of the Maison’s in-house expertise that combines tradition and innovation with a creative approach. In the Piaget gold-working atelier in Plan-les-Ouates (Geneva) the mastery and know-how required to create over a hundred different types of gold bracelets resides in the hands of the in house craftsmen. In all its forms, whether in a watch bracelet with multiple sleek links or in a supple strap woven from a single threadlike wire, gold is handled with a light, versatile touch.
In previous years, Piaget revived gold-working techniques drawn from archival pieces of the 1960s and 1970s, made during the âge d’or of the jet-set Piaget Society. Pieces such as those in the 2018 Extremely Lady collection reintroduced historical decorative techniques and redesigned to create new finishes that simulated the textures of wood, fur and icy frost in gold.

At the 2019 SIHH, Piaget brings a completely new finish into the repertoire of its in-house atelier, ensuring that the store of artisanal savoir-faire at the Maison is not only maintained, but also increased. The ripple of light and shadow on the scales of an exotic creature is replicated in an Extremely Lady timepiece of pink gold, adding to the collection’s existing wealth of gold-worked textures inspired by nature. Each scale is brushed by hand, with infinitely varied and minute differences in angle and pressure creating the end result of a close-fitting bracelet that shimmers with lively shimmers.

The scale decoration appears on both the dial and the bracelet of the Extremely Lady, invoking an aesthetic signature that was common in Piaget timepieces of the 1960s and 1970s. A bezel set with 24 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 1.46 ct) and the roseate tone of the gold highlight the lines of the vintage design. Presented in a matching case in pink gold, this new creation is powered by the Piaget Manufacture 56P Quartz movement.
