GPHG 2023 Nominee - Ladies' - Piaget Hidden Treasures watch
By SENATUS Magazine | 17 October 2023

Re-interpreting the cuff watches of the 1960s-70s that became a hallmark of Piaget’s audacity and pioneering fashion-focused creativity, this Hidden Treasures watch;s design references the free-form, hyper-naturalism of the era.

With the signature oval dial half-hidden by the gold work of the bracelet that appears to grow over the case and ornamental dial. Each cuff is hand-engraved with different patterns and textures, highlighting Piaget’s expertise in the art of engraving and dedication to Métiers d’Or.

The different styles of engraving demonstrate the combination of dexterity and artistic sensibility mastered by each individual artisan. The gold is incised, by hand, one line at a time, using the sharp tip of a burin, the lines varying in depth, width and direction to obtain the desired effect. Gold shavings are gently blown away from the surface by the goldsmith after each gesture. No two patterns of engraved gold are the same.

Here, the golden bracelet reproduces the famous lines of the Palace Decor, and inset with a sapphire-framed case and dial of turquoise.
