Piaget adds moonphase to the Altiplano

Piaget enhances its ultra-slim Altiplano collection with a set of four artisan Metiers d’Art Altiplano moonphase watches, each featuring a translucent blue enamel sky created by master enameller Anita Porchet.

Four new Piaget Métiers d’art Altiplano Moonphase watches, each representing a different season.

Four Métiers d’art Altiplano Moonphase watches showcase the Chinese constellations, each represented by small white dots and precious stones. At night, the hidden SuperLumiNova-coated artwork illuminates to reveal the moon and the ‘Guardian’ constellation of the seasons.

Each of the four models is associated with a different guardian of the seasons: the Azure Dragon stands for the East and is associated with spring and wood; The red bird, representing the south, is near summer and fire; The white tiger, facing west, is the friend of autumn and finally, a black turtle (for the north) represents winter.

On the lower half of each watch, Piaget displays a moonbeam set with graduated diamonds, sapphires and garnets. The large moon phase display features a gold ring set and a moon window with graduated diamonds. Each 36mm watch is cased in white gold or rose gold with a baguette diamond bezel.

After two years in the works, the new models are among the first models in the Altiplano collection to feature a moon phase display. Two additional models, each with mother-of-pearl dials, also debut moon phase displays within the Altiplano.

Piaget powers the new series with its 580P Altiplano Manufacture automatic mechanical movement. At the back, you’ll find a deep blue-lacquered moon-shaped oscillating weight.

Each season of the Piaget Métiers d’art Altiplano Moonphase is a limited edition of eight individually numbered timepieces.

Price: $147,000.
