Georges-Edouard Piaget set up his workshop in 1874.  Shortly afterwards, Swiss watch brands sought out Piaget’s quality watch components and high precision movements to use on their own models.  Throughout it’s history, Piaget became known for it’s innovations and high jewelry pieces.  In 1957, Piaget created an ultra thin 2mm thick 9P caliber movement.  In 1963, Piaget incorporated  ornamental stones in their dials.  In 1979, Piaget created it’s iconic Piaget Polo.  Models in their current collection includes the Piaget Altiplano, Piaget Limelight Gala, Piaget Possession, and Piaget Black Tie.
