As tribute to the Chinese culture and the next year of Dragon, Piaget is proud to announce the release of the new Dragon & Phoenix collection.
This new watch collection by Piaget includes more than 20 watches, which interpret the symbols of the Dragon and the Phoenix – two of the most important imperial symbols in the Chinese culture. While the Dragon signifies masculinity, wisdom and the power to reach spiritual harmony, the Phoenix means femininity, beauty, compassion, prudence and charm.
One of the stars of this collection, the new Piaget Emperador XL watch comes in an 18K pink gold case with the back side made of sapphire crystal with a gilded applied dragon ideogram.
