This year, in Hong Kong, visitors have a chance to view two exceptional pieces of jewelry from the watch house of Piaget. This watchmaker of exclusive watches has been preserving and cultivating a spirit of luxury since its foundation in 1874. Though it has firstly been specialized in the production of watch movements, Piaget expanded the scope of its expertise in the 1960’s with the launch of dazzling jewelry timepieces.
The first exquisite watch that the audience in Hong Kongwill enjoy is the Gem-set Piaget Polo Flying Tourbillon. This masterpiece is characterized by the superb gem-cutting and setting on the 18-karat white gold case and dial. The model with the referent number G0A29065 features a crown adorned with as many as 446 brilliant-cut diamonds with the total weight of approximately 7.6 karats, and 151 baguette-cut diamonds totaling to 16 karats. Its 18-carat white gold folding clasp also features 16 brilliant-cut diamonds weighting 0.3 karats, as well as 14 baguette-cut diamonds totaling to 1.5 karats. The total weight of diamonds is about 25.4 karats.
This luxury men’s timekeeper is powered by an extremely reliable and precise 600P hand-winding mechanical tourbillon movement which is the world’s thinnest tourbillon shaped movement (only 3.5 mm thick). This impeccable movement provides a power reserve of approximately 40 hours. The power reserve indicator is nicely set at the 6 o’clock position. The case sizes 22.4 x 28.64 mm, and although it is small, it perfectly sports any wrist size.
Piaget also brought one large model at the 30th jubilee HKTDC Hong Kong Watch & Clock Fair. It is Cushion-shaped Limelight watch that comes with 381 brilliant-cut diamonds weighting 1.4 karats, and 92 baguette-cut diamonds totaling to 7.1 karats. The diamonds are paved on its case, dial, bracelet and folding clasp. The large-sized case measures 43.5 x 47 mm and it is made of 18-karat white gold.
This Piaget timepiece with the referent number G0A33145 is equipped with an ultra-thin 880P mechanical self-winding flyback chronograph movement with small seconds, date and dual time zone. The movement, built on 35 jewels, is capable of holding approximately 50 hours of charge. Its charming dial incorporates a small second counter at the 6 o’clock position, a chronograph sub-dial situated at the 3 o’clock position, the second time zone positioned at the 9 o’clock, and a large date opening set at the 12 o’clock position, among others.
This exceptional timepiece is distinguished by the brand’s characteristic Haute Horlogerie signature finishes, such as the circular-grained mainplate, beveled and hand-drawn bridges, as well as blued screws and a circular Côtes de Genève decoration.
