    This book (rightly) can be found in the Fashion/Jewelry section of the coffee table book shops. List price is $85, and it's worth every bit of $10.

    It sports 262 pages of full color photos of the fabulous jewelry that Piaget markets as watches. The text covers the birth of the company, its history during the golden years of watch making, its part in the genesis of the quartz movement, and the designers and their creations that made the company world renowned (among people with more money than sense).

    It is divided into chronological sections, but the pictures do not follow a strict chronological ordering.

    If you are fond of these watches, you'll want to find this book... at a bargain book store. If not, spend your money on a cheaper quartz watch.
