Métiers d’Art Watches from the “Sunlight Escape” High Jewellery Collection.

 

Piaget’s high jewellery collection “Sunlight Escape” brings with it eight beautifully designed Altiplano timepieces that use exceptional Métiers d’Art crafting techniques, including stunning and intricately delicate marquetry, bulino engraving and vivid enamelling. As the collection draws inspiration from the lands of the Northern lights, the dials weave stunning solar visuals and scenes of wildlife into their designs. At the core of these eight watches beat the Manufacture Piaget 430P, an ultra-thin hand-wound mechanical movement and noble successor to the hand-wound Piaget 9P.
