At the 2011 SIHH in Geneva, Piaget launched the Altiplano Longfeng watch, which is full of Chinese flavor, which made us shine. In the eyes of the Chinese, Longfeng means noble and auspicious meaning, as the saying goes ‘Longfeng Chengxiang’. Piaget’s two watches are exactly to welcome the arrival of the Dragon Year in 2012.
According to Piaget, it has carefully crafted a series of more than 20 watches, all of which interpret the imaginary world outlined by the Chinese dynasty logo with a broad artistic vision, forming a series that inspires and fosters dreams. At the 2011 SIHH, Piaget was the first to show two watches in the series, which are dressed as dragons and phoenixes by Altiplano watches, painted with filigree enamel painting techniques and fired by fire.
The Dragon and Phoenix watches are designed with a 38mm diameter, the case is made of 18k white gold, and is set with 78 diamonds, about 0.7 carats. The dial is painted in filigree enamel and decorated with dragon and phoenix motifs. What’s more interesting is that the dragon pattern of the dragon watch is slightly skewed to the left of the dial, and the phoenix rate of the phoenix watch is skewed to the right of the dial, which is completely consistent with the ‘Male Left Female Right’ principle pursued in China. And the back also makes us Chinese feel kind. The back of the dragon watch is engraved with the Chinese character ‘Dragon’, and the back of the Feng watch is engraved with the Chinese character ‘Feng’. The dragon watch is equipped with a gray alligator leather strap and the phoenix watch is equipped with a white alligator leather strap.
The movement of the Altiplano watch is a 430P hand-wound movement made by Piaget La Cote-aux-Fees advanced production workshop, with a size of 20.5mm / 2.1mm, a vibration frequency of 21600vph per hour, and 18 stones. With a 40-hour power reserve.
