Jackie Kennedy wears iconic Piaget watch
Natalie Portman stars in Pablo Larrain’s feature film “Jackie” about the First Lady
The Watch Quote™ - December 16th, 2016
Revered and admired, Jackie Kennedy was one of the most popular and most photographed First Ladies of the 20th century. “Jackie,” starring Natalie Portman as the wife of President John F Kennedy, is an unflinching portrait of a woman both iconic and mysterious, as well as a rumination on faith, history, mythology and loss.
Known for her elegant fashions and accessories, this fascinating character appears in the new film wearing her original gold Piaget watch and other Piaget fine jewelry pieces that embody her iconic style.
Blending fiction and reality, “Jackie” by director Pablo Larrain paints a vivid picture of the iconic First Lady. This in-depth portrait of Jackie Kennedy follows her over a period of four days starting shortly before the assassination on 22nd November 1963. In keeping with her trademark style and Larrain’s authentic approach, the treasured watch that Jackie Kennedy wore during that era makes a special appearance on her wrist in certain scenes of the film. Robert Kennedy, the President’s younger brother played by co-star Peter Sarsgaard, also wears a vintage Piaget watch that embodies the elegance of that period.
Featuring an oval jade dial set with diamonds and green tourmalines, this luxury watch is fitted with a very supple fabric-like bracelet made from gold mesh adorned with the very Piaget “palace” decor. The elegant watch that once belonged to Jackie Kennedy is emblematic of Piaget’s golden age with its fine goldsmithing and colored stones. It is now part of the Maison’s patrimony. A collection released in 2014 included several creations inspired by this special watch and its distinctly look. To coincide with the international release of the new movie, Piaget will be editing a special edition of the iconic watch with its characteristic hard stone dial available as of January 2017 (G0A42216 & G0A42217).
As seen in the official movie trailer, “Jackie” features other Piaget pieces that evoke the style icon’s distinctive look.
