Piaget – Emperador Coussin XL Lune Astronomique
At the upcoming Watches&Wonders 2015 occasion (Hong Kong, 30 September – 3 October 2015), Piaget will present the Emperador Coussin XL Lune Astronomique.
This new artistic creation is a preface to the new Haute Horlogerie Secrets & Lights assortment, a total of 38 watches motivated to the historical Silk Route and its important job in interfacing the West and the East and two urban areas in particular: Venice and Samarkand.
The Emperador Coussin XL Lune Astronomique features a valuable dial, portraying the districts associated by the Silk Route, crafted utilizing the champlevé enamel procedure with miniature enamel-painted details. The windrose nautical compass theme on the dial is an accolade for world travelers.
The astronomical moon is situated at 6 o’clock on the dial and displays the moon phases in a large aperture of 12 mm. Constrained by an incredibly fine gear train, it will lose or gain just a single day in 122 years.
A wheel of 135 teeth drives the rotation of the moon mask which stows away and reveals a subsequent plate representing the moon.
The 46.5 mm rose gold case houses the Piaget 860P automatic development, beating at 21,600 vibrations each hour and featuring a twofold barrel which guarantees a force hold of 72 hours. The completions are in accordance with traditional haute horlogerie: slanted extensions, blued screws, circular Côtes de Genève and circular-grained mainplate. The oscillating weight is engraved with the Piaget coat of arms.
The Piaget Emperador Coussin XL Lune Astronomique is a restricted version of only 8 pieces. Cost to be announced. piaget.com
