One of the established elites of today’ luxury watchmaking industry, Piaget started its existence during the second half of the 19th century, in a space of legend for the entire Haute Horology – the Neuchâtel region, in the Swiss Jura Mountains, in a small town named La Côte-aux-Fées.
Launched in 1874, by an ambitious young watchmaker, George Piaget, who opened his own workshops and dedicated his entire existence to giving life to highly innovative timepieces, incorporating pioneering technologies and perfected down to the finest detail touch, Piaget rapidly conquered the hearts of many watch collectors worldwide, earning its place among the most prestigious members of this industry.
Through the years, Piaget remained fateful to the perfectionist ideals of its creator, and never ceased to create spectacular new models, defined by immaculate timekeeping accuracy, mechanical sophistication and timeless elegance and distinction.
Not long ago, the brand brought another remarkable addition to one of its most refined watch lines, Piaget Black Tie Watch Collection, the new dressy new Emperador Tourbillon G0A35121 Watch, a sophisticated model, which emanates style and elegance.
The model demonstrated an elegant, 18-karat white gold, rectangular case, measuring 31 mm x 38 mm, and 3.5 mm in thickness, which makes it the world’s thinnest tourbillon. The case demonstrates an interesting combination of straight lines and softened edges, accented by the satin-polished finish; it incorporates a gold crown, a protective sapphire crystal and an exhibition case-back, which allows a curious eye to admire the beautifully decorated movement, which animates the timepiece.
A masterpiece of classicism, the new Piaget Black Tie Emperador Tourbillon G0A35121 Watch demonstrates an elegant dial, wonderfully decorated with sunburst guilloche pattern, and nicely completed with white gold applied hour indices and sharp faceted hour and minutes hands. In a round opaline window, originally located at 12 o’clock, the model reveals the most beautiful of the complications – the tourbillon, counterbalanced at 6 o’clock position by a moon-phase complication.
Furthermore, at the heart of the new Piaget Black Tie Emperador Tourbillon G0A35121 Watch beats the high-performance, ultra thin, hand-winding mechanical tourbillon movement – the in-house Piaget 640P Caliber, which can also be admired through the model’s case-back.
Surely, the best choice for a modern gentleman, keen on elegance and mechanical excellence, the new Piaget Black Tie Emperador Tourbillon G0A35121 Watch embraces the wrist with a black leather strap and will probably cost somewhere around $25,000.00.
