To celebrate the Chinese New Year, in which Rooster take over from monkey as the Chinese zodiac sign representing the year, Maison Piaget has created two limited edition timepieces.
Piaget Altiplano 38mm in Cloisonné Enamel Dial Featuring Rooster Motif : First model is based on the brand’s popular ultra-thin Altiplano watch line. Every year since 2012, Piaget has staged that Chinese New year’s zodiac sign on the dial of one of its ultra-thin Altiplano watches, masterfully handcrafted in the great Grand Feu cloisonné enamelling tradition. In 2017 the rooster joins the limited edition collection, creatively interpreted within the confines of the watch’s extremely thin case.
The radiance of the handcrafted enamel with its ethereal glow is enhanced by the natural beauty of 78 brilliant-cut diamonds set on the watch’s white gold case. Limited to just 38 pieces, this collector’s edition is a fitting homage to great skill of the métiers d’art with their ancestral techniques so passionately nurtured by Piaget.

Piaget Polo Tourbillon Relatif 45mm Unique Piece with 12 Chinese Zodiac Signs: In keeping with this tradition of paying tribute to the culture of the Asian continent and to mark the 10th anniversary of the famous Tourbillon Relatif movement, Piaget has created a one-of-a-kind piece inspired by the Chinese zodiac. For this exclusive and unique masterpiece in white gold and black enamel, a master engraver and enameller have come together to stage the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac on the dial of a Piaget Polo timepiece combining champlevé Grand Feu enamelling with delicate hand engravings of each of the animals. From its dial to the back and the sides of the case, this model can be entirely personalized to the wishes of its owner thanks to the creative marriage of two exceptional Art & Excellence techniques.
The hours are indicated by the central disc, while the seconds are indicated by the carriage of the tourbillon suspended above the dialon the minute hand. In celebration of the movement’s 10th anniversary, the minute hand has been redesigned as a cut-out arrow so as to allow a better view of the decorations on the dial.
