Among the historic Swiss watch manufactures, Piaget stands out for its unique expertise in both watchmaking and jewellery. On the occasion of Watches and Wonders Shanghai, Piaget unveils five exceptional tourbillon watches brilliantly showcasing this alchemy between Haute Horlogerie and Haute Joaillerie.
One of Piaget’s most intriguing creations, the Tourbillon Relatif is technically and visually a spectacular timepiece. Its tourbillon regulator revolves around the periphery of the dial and is fitted as a counterpoise to the minute hand. With this exceptional architecture, its beating heart seems to be literally floating over the dial. The unique version of the Tourbillon Relatif presented at Watches and Wonders Shanghai comes in a fully paved 47mm white gold case, dial and bracelet with over 1,300 baguette-cut and brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 50.50 carats).
