The Haute Horlogerie mechanism of a watch with complications
Since 1874 the quiet little village of La Côte-aux-Fées in the Swiss Jura has been the birthplace of watches with complications that are genuine milestones in the realm of Haute Horlogerie. -+
Movements with complications manufactured entirely by Piaget
From its beginnings as a pocket watch, Piaget’s luxury watch has evolved over the years into a wristwatch incorporating a wide range of complications – from the simplest to the most prestigious – that are among the most emblematic in the art of Haute Horlogerie. Always seeking out new challenges, the Piaget Manufacture has added to its canon watches with ever more exacting complications such as tourbillons, perpetual calendars, minute repeaters and flyback chronographs; often, these are even combined with other complex functions such as a second time zone or a power reserve indicator.
As has always been the case, all Piaget movements are still entirely designed and assembled within its Manufacture in La-Côte-aux-Fées, the place where it all began almost a century and a half ago. Imbued with a deep respect for its heritage and tradition, the brand is nevertheless fired by a tremendous creative boldness, which regularly drives it to take pioneering steps forward that alter the face of Haute Horlogerie forever. Piaget’s watches with complications are a huge part of this story, as their peerless technical finesse constantly reaches new peaks. The Maison’s refined esthetic values also breathe an artistic dimension into each of its luxury watches, giving rise to unique designs and finishes of outstanding quality.
