1970s Piaget Hexagon Dress Watch 18K WG (Ref. 9523 D2) Lapis Dial W/ Onyx & Sodalite Bezel

$ 9,450

Piaget is widely celebrated as being one of the most creative and esoteric watchmakers, with a deep foundation in Swiss watchmaking as the brand was established in 1874. The avant-garde approach to design isn't without a rigorous dedication to quality, which is expressed through the brand's inherent comprehension of what high luxury and fine watchmaking truly are.

The ref. 9523 D2 is truly the blueprint to the Piaget design ethos in the 1970s, with the melding of precious materials and vibrant stones which are then finished to a degree that is now all but lost in watchmaking. The result is a stunning and extremely thin Hexagon-shaped design with faceted sodalite and onyx stones throughout the bezel and vibrant lapis stone dial, and of course, every other aspect of this watch has been intricately finished, from the beautiful roped texture of the case edges that continues through bracelet. Piaget is also known for being a mechanical powerhouse as well and this ref. 9523 D2 employs the in-house cal. 9P2 mechanical winding movement.

The integrated 18K white gold bracelet continues the roped-texture from the case and is truly a work of art in exceptional condition, showing no stretch . The bracelet bracelet has been previously sized and will fit a 5 3/4-inch wrist.
