Piaget Altiplano Tourbillon Dragon Pocketwatch

Piaget launches is releasing a huge line of high-end year of the Dragon themed timepieces for the Chinese market.

The Dragon is one of the most ancient and sacred Chinese totems, symbolising at once the identity of the nation and the highest achievements of Chinese civilisation.

One of the timepiece is this Altiplano Tourbillon Dragon Pocket watch. The pocket watch will have a square case and tourbillon movement.

To create the watch, the Enamel Master has used just two grand feu enamel colours: black for the background and Limoges white enamel for the dragon.

The enamel is relatively translucent and the more intense white hues are achieved exclusively by superimposing layers.

The shades of grey are achieved exclusively by superimposing layers. The shades of grey are achieved by stretching the white enamel to create a transparent effect.
