Georges-Édouard Piaget felt a passion for watchmaking from a young age, in 1874 at only 19 he set up his first workshop on the family farm in the village of La Côte-aux-Fées, Switzerland. There, he dedicated himself to creating high precision movements and components. Even in these early days, his motto "always do better than necessary" is what pushed him to have a self-surpassing attitude that would continue to motivate Piaget today. Piaget evolved at the hands of his son, Timothée Piaget. He transformed the company from being a manufacturer of movements to a creator of luxury wristwatches and pocket watches. Piaget became synonymous with elegance, luxury and "beautiful people" under the 4th generation of the family with Yves Piaget. Piaget events became the place to be. The relaxed elegance of the time was crafted in gold in 1979 with the Piaget Polo watch, becoming the emblem of an era of luxury and tying the brand to Polo, the sport of kings. It was considered the pinnacle of casual chic that marked a whole generation. Piaget watches has one of the best reputations in the luxury watch world. Just about every expert agrees that they manufacture excellent timepieces and deliver a substantial amount of value in each of their products. Today, Piaget has a modern, state of the art production facility in Plan-les-Ouates on the outskirts of Geneva.
