Lucien Piccard 14K YG “Buccelatti?” circa 1960’s

$2,650.00

A large for the era, and striking design Lucien Piccard man’s wristwatch with fine and elaborate case work and with matching finely textured chased metal pattern to the dial. The 28 x 39mm case is reminiscent of the large and low profile Corum Buckingham model of the 1970’s. A dramatic, high fashion and conspicuously detailed execution, hence our reference in the title to “Buccellatti” a reknowned jewelry company known for their exquisite and finely detailed metal work. With bezel set blue enamel hour markers, sleek gilt hands and with the Lucien Piccard name applied to a raised plaque at the 6 o’clock position. Powered by 17 jewel manual wind movement with cabachon sapphire set winding and setting crown.

Background on Lucien Piccard: Lucien Piccard company was founded in 1923 in Switzerland and has been producing both inexpensive and precious metal jewelry and watches since then. In the 1960’s, Lucien Piccard was a well known “department store” designer brand, (in my Bar Mitzvah circles) known for fashionable, modernist design cufflinks, tie bars, and money clips. Many of their trademark designs included calibrated synthetic ruby and sapphires stone set around the perimeter of their pieces à la Van Clef & Arpels. While LP is not a prestige brand in the world of collectible vintage watches, we are quite keen on the chic modernist, and faux elegance and high French and European fashion look they emulate. The current model is one we have never seen before and  as you can see, is one we are quite taken with. For your further interest, we have included some other examples of Lucien Piccard models that have passed through our hands recently.

Recently serviced and detailed offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation. Shown on a 22mm fine gray suede leather strap. Your purchase includes our signature fine leather watch pouch, ideal for travel and storage, a $55.00 value.
