Ball Watch Company
Baume et Mercier
Bell & Ross
The Richemont Group owns many luxurious watch companies, and since the 1988 acquisition Piaget has been one of their best. Started in 1874 by Georges Edouard Piaget, in La Cote-aux-Fees, Switzerland, the company was a pocket watch and clock manufacturer. When Timothee Piaget, Georges' son, took over in 1911, the company refocused their production on wristwatches.
Piaget is known for their ultra-thin watches, ultra-thin movements (the 2 mm Calibre 9P and the 2.3 mm Calibre 12P), and the company's ability to merge watches with jewelry. Piaget has produced ring watches, coin watches and cufflink watches to name a few of their creations from the union of jewelry and horology. Piaget has the thinnest tourbillon movement at 3.5 mm, known as the Calibre 600P.
