Want to light up your loved one’s face when she opens your Christmas gift? Put a smile on the face of the man in your life? Then Piaget has everything you need for the extra oomph! When it comes to stocking stuffers and presents to put under your tree.
Ever since 1874 when Georges-Edouard Piaget started making exquisite timepieces in his workshop in La Cote-aux-Fete, Piaget has been in the forefront of luxury jewellery and timepieces renowned for its exceptional design and exquisite craftsmanship.
From its signature ultra-thin movements to its use of gemstones for its dials, Piaget has always been a leader in the field of timepieces, design and fashion. So what would be a better Christmas gift than something from this esteemed Swiss jeweller and watchmaker?
Its iconic and playful Possession range makes it to the top of a wish list for a woman who has everything. Whether it is colourful stackable bangles, drop-dead gorgeous pendants, rings that ring in the New Year or the Possession watch with a rotating diamond and rose gold bezel around the Possession watch, each item will ensure you’ll be remembered long after Christmas is over.
The Possession Watch is available in Carnelian red, green malachite or blue lapis lazuli with a matching alligator strap. Similarly, the Possession bracelets come in red, green and blue with additional black onyx or blue turquoise cabochons with diamonds.
For the man in your life, show how much you love him with a Piaget Polo watch which is both classic, elegant and sporty. Featuring a blue horizontal guilloche dial with a steel bracelet, this watch holds a Piaget 1110P Manufacture automatic movement.
For those men who require a little more finesse, the Piaget Rose Gold Chronograph impresses with its structured white dial crossed with horizontal lines with a sapphire crystal case back which showcases the workings of the 1160P Manufacture automatic movement and its anthracite-grey oscillating weight.
The Altiplano gem-set skeleton automatic watch features a 1200D movement and must be the ultimate stocking stuffer. It’s a dazzling timepiece which features a double record for watch thinness – 3 mm for the movement and 6.10 for the case.
Ladies are not ignored when it comes to high jewellery timepieces. The Sun Watch is enclosed in a white gold case with its stunning black dial surrounded by 24 marquise-shaped diamonds forming a wreath of sorts. A Piaget 430P ultra-thin, hand-wound Manufacture movement makes this watch a treasure to admire and relish in the years to come.
