Piaget Polo watch
A glittering demonstration of Piaget’s dual expertise in watchmaking and jewellery, the Tourbillon Relatif watch is a subject of fascination. Suspended from the tip of the minute hand that carries it along in its rotation, the mobile cage of the Tourbillon Double Revolution watch seems to be independent of the movement. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of this emblematic “grand complication” model, the geometry of its hand has been reinterpreted in a spirit that is eminently contemporary. An authentic challenge to the laws of gravity and balance, this technical tour de force achieved by Piaget is embellished by the glitter of 791 baguette-cut and brilliant-cut diamonds, forming a fascinating scene of great visual magic. Quite exceptional in every respect, this complication watch houses a dial in mother-of-pearl marquetry divided up by gem-set hour-markers, and is illuminated by diamonds on its sides, case back, crown and folding buckle.
