This timepiece is from Piaget’s latest collection, Extremely Piaget, which was inspired by jet-set glamour and the 1960s and ’70s, when Piaget introduced hard-stone dials on watches. The watch shown was influenced by a Piaget watch from 1965 that had an oval jade dial set with diamonds and emeralds and was owned by Jacqueline Kennedy. The new model has a natural turquoise dial set with 20 brilliant-cut diamonds and four natural turquoise cabochons. It has a rose-gold case and a supple, gold-mesh bracelet that is similar to the original version. Price available upon request.
A collection of yellow-gold medallions showing the signs of the zodiac was introduced by Van Cleef & Arpels in the 1950s and continued to be popular through the ’80s. Today Van Cleef & Arpels is renewing this tradition with 12 limited-edition Lady Arpels Zodiac Extraordinary Dial timepieces. The watches have 38-mm white-gold cases, manual-wind mechanical movements, diamond bezels, and dials that feature translucent enamel, mother-of-pearl, hard-stone marquetry and diamonds. The Sagittarius model is shown here. The zodiac sign is also engraved on the back of the case. Price available upon request.
