PIAGET REPAIR

“You don’t read the time from a Piaget, you admire it.”

The Piaget brand is legendary in the watch world. The company’s namesake, George Piaget started out a farmer, but then found his calling as a watchmaker in the village of La-Cote-Aux-Fees, Switzerland. Swiss watchmaking is the highest of quality and brands all over the world have moved their watch manufacturers to the country to imitate the design of watch brands like Piaget.

For over a century, the brand was founded in 1874 has went from strength to strength. Piaget became successful quickly, which led to Georges Piaget’s sons eventually taking over the business. The brand has survived tough times and it has been the leaders of the company that have drove the business to success.

It was up until the second world war that Piaget’s watches were marketed and sold through other companies. However, after the war was finished it was then that Piaget started creating watches under their own name. Piaget now creates some of the most innovative luxury watches.

PIAGET WATCH HISTORY

1874

Piget was originally founded in La Côte-aux-Fées. This world renowned watch company was built in a   small village in the Swiss part of the Jura. It was here that Georges Édouard Piaget drew his first ever design which years later would be a world leader in luxury and fine watchmaking.

This was the year when Piget started his first workshop on a family farm. Day in, day out Piget dedicated and devoted his life to engineering high-precision movements.

Paget’s work soon became extremely popular and his business grew quickly. The famous watch makers name and designs soon travelled far beyond the small village where he first started.

At that time watch enthusiasts were extremely impressed by his signature movement that was seldom equalled.

1911

Piaget became as family run business in 1911 as Georges Édouard’s son Timothée Piaget took over the business. Piaget’s son was extremely enthusiastic about the future of watches and was the perfect man to take over the business as he displayed the same passion, demand for quality watches.

It was Timothée’s enterprising spirit and readiness to take on competitors and risks that drove the business to an even bigger success.

1943

Due to the brands increasing success, the business made a decision that was crucial to its future by registering the brand. This decision leads the brand to produce watches that were signed by and sold under the Piaget name.

Once the brand was registered this is when the demand for watches increased hugely. Even though the workshops had been modernised, they could not keep pace with demand.

1945

In 1945 Piaget built a new manufacturing facility, a space where they would develop some of the world’s most advanced mechanical watches.

1957

The famous ultra-thin hand-wound Calibre 9P, which was only 2 mm thick was born.

1960

The brand advanced again as Piaget launched the Calibre 12P, the world’s thinnest self-winding movement. It measured just 2.3 mm thick.

During the 1960s, the continued to dominate the watch market and took a stand against competitors by purchasing several goldsmiths’ workshops in Geneva.

1979

This year the brand launched the incredible Piaget Polo watch. Avant-garde, yet classic enough never to go out of style, it quickly became an icon.

This timepiece joined a list of legends as the Piaget Polo gave the brand a new international dimension and global recognition.

1990

Piaget launched the Piaget Altiplano collection. This was a revolution of ultra-thin watches which was inspired by a vintage 1957 model. The watch designers at Piaget wanted to create a timepiece that was classic and elegant.

2001

The company moved with the millennial and opened the new Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Piaget in Plan-les-Ouates, just outside Geneva.

The brand was keen to move forward with the future of watch making while maintaining the quality of their traditional work.

PIAGET LUXURY WATCH REPAIR

Piaget’s move was an excellent decision as within a decade, roughly 30 new movements were created. There was a long list of advancements that included the most prestigious horological complications, a tourbillon, a dual time-zone flyback chronograph, and a perpetual calendar.

Today, the brand continues to advance and building on years of success, Piaget presented the skeleton version of this same movement, exploring the fascinating art of open-working.
