Watches that reveal their inner workings
In the Swiss Jura mountains in 1872 a craftsman named Georges Edouard Piaget began
making pocket watches in a small house on a small farm. From these humble beginnings
grew a company which has been making some of the most highly respected and sought
after wrist watches since 1911 when his son Timothy took over the family business nearly
four decades after it's founding. Today Piaget makes high quality, stylish watches with
innovative mechanics. Their watches are technical wonders and works of art.
Merry Richards Jewelers in Chicago is a dealer of Authentic Piaget Watches (as well as
Omega, Hermes, Mont Blanc, Bedat & Co., Longines, Michele, and Oris). Merry Richards is a
family owned, independent jewelry business that got it's start three decades ago on
Jewelers Row in the Windy City. In addition to timepieces they carry a vast selection of
diamonds, jewelry, and wedding an engagement bands. Merry Richards carries eight lines
of Piaget watches covering a wide range of styles and budgets. There is the Black Tie
collection which are for more formal occasions. Some are very straightforward, while
others feature more intricate watch faces the inner workings of the watch featured as the
face. Watches that reveal their inner workings are known as “skeleton watches” and tend to
have a lot of character, even as they can also be exquisite luxury items. The Altiplano
collection is designed for everyday use and tend to be sleeker, simpler designs. The Polo
collection is sportier and more rugged. The stand out collection however is the collection of
“Exceptional Pieces”. These are incredibly intricate, jewel encrusted chronometers. Many of
them are completely encrusted in diamonds. Others incorporate the striking contrast of
rose gold and mother of pearl in addition to plenty of diamonds.
To get a sense of the rarefied company own and wear authentic Piaget watches consider
the celebrities that have been seen wearing them. Rihanna sports a simple and sleek gold
Polo Piaget. Jared Leto wore a Piaget Altiplano 40mm to the Oscars 2014. Korean superstar
and heartthrob Siwon Choi is a committed Piaget fan, as is Chinese and international
actress and sex symbol Gong Li. Action starts Hugh Jackman and Jessica Chastain have both
been spotted rocking their Piagets. These are watches that are priced in the tens of
thousands of dollars (some in the hundreds of thousands) and though these celebs may be
the most high profile customers of Piaget, they are really more the domain of high flying
hedge fund managers and European countesses. If you are in Chicago and in the
neighborhood of Merry Richards Jewlers, you may want to stop in and see what all the fuss
