Piaget GPHG 2015

The chronograph, Altiplano Chrono and the Extemely Piaget manchette were honoured at the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève.

At the Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Genève prize-giving ceremony held yesterday evening, October 29th 2015, at the Grand Théatre de Genève, the Altiplano Chrono watch and the Extremely Piaget manchette were awarded respectively the Chronograph and the Revival prices.

Altiplano Chrono
A contemporary embodiment of purity and elegance, the Piaget Altiplano Chrono succeeds in conveying, through its apparent simplicity, the timeless understated elegance of the Altiplano collection. For the very first time, this signature line from the Manufacture welcomes a major complication: an ultra-thin hand-wound chronograph function. And since good things often come in pairs, the Piaget Altiplano Chronograph represents a new double record in the field of ultra-thin watchmaking, a demanding art in which the Maison has consistently excelled since 1957. With its 4.65 mm movement and its 8.24 mm thick case, this newcomer to the Altiplano range enriches an already impressive list of Piaget timepieces distinguished by their legendary slenderness.

Extremely Piaget manchette
The 1960s and 1970s, which inspired the Extremely Piaget collection, witnessed a burst of colour along with new shapes. Piaget was the first to express this trend through its jewellery and watch collections. This creative freedom was made possible by the development in the late 1950s of the ultra-thin Manufacture Piaget movements, which enabled the introduction of hard stone dials on the watches made by the Maison, without compromising the slimness of the cases.

"Piaget time… measured only in gold! " This advertising slogan from the late 1970s is as relevant today as ever. Gold is the benchmark metal used by the Maison. It gives a distinctive shimmering glow to the precious or hard stone dial used by Piaget in its jewellery and watches. Above all, it is crafted in the workshops of the Manufacture using methods similar to those of Haute Couture. Piaget has always been profoundly attached to preserving unique goldsmithing skills, notably by training new generations of artisans who acquire gestures passed on for decades at the workbenches. These workshops have thus become living “conservatories” where exceptional creations are still crafted today.

This cuff-watch featuring the hammered gold technique, which endows the metal with a powerful character, is a fine example of these creations in which jewellery meets watchmaking.
