As you can see from the pictures, this piece is nothing short of breathtaking. Its elaborate cage-like cuff (or in Jack’s words, “it looks like the rib cage of a seagull”) is made of hammered white gold, and holds not one, but TWO dials on either side (how’s that for a dual-time?). One dial is made of a thin layer of fire opal, while the other is made of onyx. Stone dials are a trademark of Piaget, ever since they were debuted by the brand in 1964. They were famous for using unusual stones such as onyx, lapis lazuli, coral, opal, turquoise, and tiger-eye. The cuff is made in two sections – the opal dial on one side, and the onyx on the other. Both sections are connected by a hinge that encases the wrist (you’d need a pretty small one, I might add) and the bracelet is closed with a small hooked clasp.
