Piaget Emperador Cushion watch
Combining Haute Horlogerie and Haute Joaillerie is an art that Piaget masters with dazzling style. In technical terms, this model is the very expression of what Piaget carries in its genes, its unique expertise in the field of ultra-thin movements being matched only by its determination constantly to develop complication calibres that are both innovative and creative. The Calibre 1270P is Piaget's first self-winding ultra-thin tourbillon mechanical movement with a thickness of only 5.55 mm. Fully exhibited thanks to a sapphire crystal dial, this technical prowess is also highlighted by the exceptional richness of its gem-setting.
Baguette-cut and brilliant-cut diamonds adorn not only its case, profiles and case back (which in turn reveals the carriage and power reserve display), but also its folding-clasp buckle and the rings around the oscillating weight and tourbillon. Over 700 hours of development and some 350 hours of gem-setting were required to create this unique timepiece.
