As a part of their latest exceptional pieces collection, Swiss luxury watch brand Piaget introduces a jewellery version of Emperador Tourbillon watch epitomising the brand’s genetic heritage: unique competence in the field of ultra-thin movements, combined with a determination to develop consistently innovative and creative complicated calibres.
Calibre 1270P is Piaget’s first ultra-thin automatic tourbillon movement, measuring a mere 5.55 mm thick. Fully revealed through a sapphire crystal dial, this feat is also highlighted by exceptionally sophisticated gemsetting. Baguette and brilliant-cut diamonds adorn the case and its sides, including the exhibition case-back revealing the tourbillon carriage and the power-reserve display, as well as the folding clasps and the rings surrounding the oscillating weight and the Tourbillon. Over 140 hours of gemsetting were required to craft this numbered model featuring 18.4 carats of diamonds.
