YEAR OF THE DOG

COMMEMORATING THE YEAR OF THE DOG


On the first day of the lunar calendar, families and friends around the world come together for the Chinese New Year. This is a centuries-old celebration that shuns away any ill-fortune and welcomes in good luck for the year ahead. 2018 is the year of the dog as per the Chinese zodiac. The Dog symbolizes loyalty and kindness as well as the qualities of trustworthiness, reliability and strong sense of morals and ethics. Here is how these can be reinterpreted in timepieces.

PIAGET
ALTIPLANO

The Chinese Zodiac timepiece in honour of the Year of The Dog uses the delicate Grand Feu cloisonné enamelling technique. The ultra-thin watchmaking icon, the Altiplano is the canvas for expression of a rare art. Piaget’s master enameller brings to life the symbol of the Dog, elegantly staged on the dial of an edition limited to just 38 pieces.
The dial is framed by the 78 brilliant-cut diamonds set on the watch’s white gold case, presented with a black alligator leather strap. In a subtle gesture, the watch is accompanied by the Piaget Rose, a sophisticated bracelet that is in essence a New Year’s rose in gold and diamonds. The Yves Piaget rose has been creatively reimagined as a dentelle rose in precious rose gold, on a delicate chain bracelet.
Here is to good luck for the year ahead!
