Chinese New Year

Since 2012, Piaget has continued the tradition of Chinese New Year by launching a special creation for the occasion. This year, a limited edition Altiplano Chinese Zodiac ultra-thin watch pays tribute to the year of the dog. With radiance.

On the first day of the lunar calendar each year, families and friends come together to celebrate Chinese New Year. A unique moment commemorated by Piaget with the unveiling of an equally exceptional creation: the Altiplano Chinese Zodiac ultra-thin watch. Being the year of the dog, it is this symbol that adorns the dial of these 38 limited edition timepieces. As the perfect luxury gift, this timepiece encapsulates both the expertise of the Swiss Manufacture and what this Asian culture regards as a dog's distinguishing features of the dog: loyalty and kindness.

World-renowned enameller Anita Porchet employed all her creativity in depicting these qualities by playing with light and shadow. Set with 78 diamonds and presented with a black alligator leather strap, this luxury watch displays a fine, proud animal in a thousand shades of grey. Its hand-crafted motif, created using precious enamel and the Grand Feu technique, gives the impression of a real gleaming coat. Blending expert craftsmanship and watchmaking skill, the symbol for 2018 now adorns the Altiplano, a real icon among ultra-thin Swiss watches.

Precious and passionate, roses in gold lace bloom upon pieces of luxury jewellery in celebration of the hope that also accompanies the new year. Embracing diamonds, sparkling pink sapphires and white Akoya pearls, Piaget’s favourite flower seizes the opportunity to express its beautiful message. The petals adorning the rose gold bracelets with their delicate chains make luxury gifts of unrivalled elegance for women of today. Replicating poetic allusions to the mysteries of love, this rose jewellery also highlights the intensity of continuously renewed passion.
