For nearly 150 years, Piaget has earned its reputation as an outstanding watchmaker that is extremely skilled in ultra-thin movements as well as master goldsmiths and gem setters. The new Piaget Extremely Lady watch puts its expertise on display and features an all-new finish: The gold bracelet is completely hand engraved to replicate the look of snakeskin.
In Piaget’s Plan-les-Ouates, Switzerland workshops, master artisans spend hundreds of hours engraving not just the bracelet, but also the dial, to create a seamless look that appears to ripple when the light hits it at different angles.
Each ‘scale’ is hand-brushed in different directions and with varying amounts of depth to achieve dimension. For an additional touch of glamour, the bezel is set with 24 brilliant-cut diamonds.
Price: $55,000 in 18K rose gold
