Here’s another breathtaking collection created in honour of the Chinese New Year, Year of the Dragon. The Dragon and Phoenix collection by Piaget features 24 models including the Altiplano Tourbillon Dragon Pocketwatch which has been skilfully enamelled with white background in the front and black background with the dragons on the back.
It is cased with 18 carat white gold and 18 carat white gold jewelled bezel embellished with 144 brilliant-cut diamonds.
The dial is also silver coloured and has a stunning Chinese dragon ideogram. The Piaget Altiplano Tourbillon Dragon Pocketwatch has a reserve of about 40 hours and comes equipped with 18 carat gold chain.
Another popular piece in the collection is the Piaget Dragon Protocole XXL which comes in an 18-carat white gold case encrusted with 32 brilliant-cut diamonds weighing around 0.1 carats. Inside the case lies the 18-carat white gold dial set with 37 brilliant-cut diamonds.
The sapphire crystal case-back of the Piaget Protocole XXL also sports a Chinese dragon, this time as a silver ideogram. Running with the Piaget 830P mechanical hand-wound movement, the watch is finished with a grey alligator leather strap sporting an 18-carat white gold folding clasp.
