The “lucien piccard jewelry history” is a watch that was designed by Lucien Piccard. The watch has a stainless steel case, with a black dial, and white gold bezel. The watch also comes with a brown leather strap.

Regarding Lucien Piccard

Lucien Piccard was established in Switzerland in 1923. It made noteworthy and fascinating clocks for a while. Given that the name has changed ownership, it is difficult to determine what type of business Lucien Piccard is now. When you search for their name on Google, you are sent to shopping websites with little reviews.

Most contemporary Lucien Piccard watches include automated movements made in China or Japan. Although the quartz movements are of high quality, take care with the automobiles.

Review Synopsis

How can I even begin with this one? Following ownership for eighteen months, the day display hand started to line up slightly below the actual indication. One of the diamonds has a very noticeable occlusion that is plain to see. It is large, heavy, and unsure of what it wants to be. It’s very incorrect. Simply said, it’s a bad purchase.

Piccard, Lucien 26576SSD Aesthetics & Design

It would be erroneous and close to a misnomer to describe this watch as handsome (but no cigar). The retrograde day display and power reserve dial look great when placed side by side on one hand. It’s a good thing that the day display at 12 o’clock looks old.

The garish, low-quality diamonds, one of which has an obvious occlusion, and the more elaborate case are where it all goes wrong. The resultant clock is heavy on the wrist and the eyes when combined with a thick steel strap.

Of course, you could defend garish as a fashion choice if the hands on the day hadn’t been misaligned. Additionally, this occurred just one and a half years after purchase.

Even though most people are unable to see it, it has always been slightly off from the very beginning. The cause? The watch is struggling with who it is. The dial aims to be something completely different from the industrial-style case and thick steel strap. The entire thing seems… strange.

Build quality of the Lucien Piccard 2657SSD Horizon

The casing of the watch seems durable, yet the watch’s mechanisms are really delicate. As was already indicated, shortly after purchase, the date display became misaligned. It was (at the time) hard to get service, so I decided to put up with it.

Case, Crystal, and Dial

This watch features a sapphire-coated mineral crystal that, as far as I can tell, has held up nicely. It was put on by Lucien Piccard. Despite being owned for many years, the crystal is still clear. No scratches or nicks.

Although the case seems to have been used, it is generally not very bad. The dial is where the problems are. The lume on the hour markers is subpar, but it is adequate on the hands.

Otherwise, you get dial hands that are cracked next to poor-quality diamonds. bad manners all around.

Clasp and Strap

This watch’s steel band and deployment clasp are very sturdy. It is one of the nicest bracelets I’ve ever worn, and despite its substantial weight, it is surprisingly pleasant to wear.

Additional Information Regarding the Piccard, Lucien 26576SSD


The 26576SSD is powered by an unidentified Chinese-made version, about which I could find very little genuine information.

Since I bought it in the middle of 2008, it has generally been accurate (to within 10–20 seconds every day), but it’s worth noting that after about 18 weeks of ownership, the day function started to misalign. It is now unable to attain the Sunday designation and is always out of sync with the other days.

Worth the Money

You get some intriguing complexities with the 26576SSD, but they have a price. For my money, even $125 is too much to pay for this watch. I would most likely spend about $90. or maybe $50. Or, maybe even more likely, I just wouldn’t purchase it and save my money for a better item.
