Piaget does it right ....

I gave my wife’s inherited watch for a complete service and spa treatment two months ago and now it’s back like it’s new . It’s 45 years old and they even went to the extent of offering patrimonial archive letter stating year of manufacture and sale and details . Further as they knew that it has to be presented to my wife for her 40th Birthday they threw in a beautiful box along with manuals ....Just Perfect !
Thanks to the Piaget team in London ! Thanks Ignacio!

























Outstanding service from Piaget, indeed.

Those were the watches Gerry Grinberg advertised as the most expensive watches in the world.

He carried about half a dozen stone-dialed Piagets around from store to store, but at a retail price of about a thousand dollars, it was too much for early 1960's Americans. (Uncomplicated Pateks in those days were about half that.) He put together the funding for a national ad that proclaimed them as the most expensive watch in the world, and tickled the nerve present in many Americans of the need to display status. Sales took off. He parlayed that success into an unsuccessful attempt to purchase Movado (Zenith got their first) and then purchased Concord for his North American Watch Company, in 1971. He succeeded in acquiring Movado in 1982 and now the NAWC is called the Movado Group, Inc., and it owns Ebel as well. Movados, Ebels, and Concords are not the flavor of the month for watch nuts, though I avidly collect them, and it's hard to imagine that the mastermind who established the Museum Watch as the premier middle-class aspirational watch for Americans sold watches as high-end as Piaget.

This back in the days retailed for 9k chf as per Piaget archives ...

Which was a little less than $2200 in the middle 60's.

But the watches he sold averaged $1000, and this one has diamonds. Story here.
