Earl Celebrates Huazhong With The Art & Excellence Series Of Art And Craftsmanship

Since 1874, Piaget has been based on its watchmaking workshops in La Côte-aux-Fées, and has always been committed to the tradition of excellence in pushing watchmaking to the extreme. The rarest, most precious and even the thinnest movements are still born from the hands of Piaget watchmakers. In 2015, Piaget took the brand’s most proud symbol, Rose, to combine peak watchmaking technology with outstanding artisans to create a series of unique watches that go hand in hand with Piaget’s infinite creativity.
Since 1874, Piaget has been based on its watchmaking workshops in La Côte-aux-Fées, and has been following the tradition of excellence in pushing watchmaking to the extreme.

   The rose is one of the count’s symbols. ‘The most famous flower in the world’, said Yves Piaget, ‘The rose reminds me of my childhood and the moment I first fell in love with wild roses called rosehips, it was a deliberate growth in Wild roses at an altitude of 1,000 meters. I did not discover artificially cultivated roses until I moved from La Côte-aux-Fées to Neuchâtel. ‘
The embroiderer Sylvie Deschamps has a reputation of ‘the magic hand’. She only uses the top-grade gold or silver embroidery threads, always holding the joy of creation as always, and diligently passing needles and threads through silk to create The most delicate and delicate Yves Piaget rose.

   Yves Piaget’s love for ‘after flowers’ was soon recognized in the Geneva International New Rose Competition in 1982. Later, the variety was named after Yves Piaget. With its 80 rose pink petals and its intoxicating aroma, it didn’t take long for it to become a classic flower. As a well-known art master in the fields of creative ingenuity, gold craftsmanship, and the natural beauty of precious gems, Piaget celebrates the endless beauty of this flower with thousands of exquisite forms created by watches and jewelry. The collection is named ‘Piaget Rose’ and is dedicated to Yves Piaget roses.
   As the guardian of roses and rose gardens, Earl has been actively involved in the conservation of this gentle and charming flower, from sponsoring the Joséphine Rose Garden in Château de Malmaison to the The two restoration plans for the Princess Grace of Monaco Rose Garden, completed in 1984 to pay tribute to the wife of Prince Rainier III, show the count’s full dedication to roses. At the 25th edition of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, Piaget collaborated with several outstanding art masters to present a series of watches decorated with precious dials, compiling a song praising the beauty of roses carol.
Micro-dot painting masterpiece and Filet silver embroidery thread
   Rarely is the reputation of the ‘Magic Hand’ so clearly demonstrated by Sylvie Deschamps’ craftsmanship that time and cost are kept aside. For her, she considers the final result, not the dozens of hours it takes to complete the work. As an embroiderer, she uses only the finest gold or silver embroidery threads, and always holds the joy of creation as always, and tirelessly passes needles and threads through silk to create the most delicate and delicate Yves Piaget rose.
Use a lancet to pierce along the precisely designed Yves Piaget rosette contour
   This embroidery is undoubtedly derived from ancient Byzantine craftsmanship. During this period, the clothing and clothing, priesthood and official emblems worn by kings and religious leaders were decorated with gold and silver embroidery threads to highlight their sacred nature. During the reign of Louis XIV in France, the use of embroidery decoration was pushed to the extreme. Many of the furniture in Versailles are covered with gold and silver embroidery. Even many great women have contributed to this trend, including the ‘Sun King’ Louis XIV’s favorite Madame de Montespan, who delicately decorated the entire living room furniture with gold for her lover. Quality embroidery.
Embroidered along the outline of petals with silver Filet lines

   Sylvie Deschamps is one of the few artists skilled in the art of embroidery in the world. She has been awarded the “Maître d’ Art” by the French Ministry of Culture, which shows her outstanding achievements in precious embroidery craftsmanship. In the past three years, the perfectionist appointed by the count has used precious embroidery threads to create a number of exquisite dials for the brand. Every production step contains tedious details. First of all, the design style must be drawn on white silk. The step is to place the tracing paper on the fabric. The embroidery master then uses a needle to pierce along the precisely designed rose-shaped contour. The powder in the paper layer is sprinkled along the thorn hole. A pattern is transferred to the silk. Then, draw the outline of the flower with a pencil and enter the formal embroidery stage.
Finish the petal embroidery
   The outline of each flower is enhanced by the silver Filet embroidery thread. The embroidery thread itself is quite rare and precious, and because the production is extremely difficult, the unit sold is calculated in ‘cm’. In use, only the two ends of the embroidery thread pass through the silk, and the rest is fixed with Boulogne stitch, which is almost invisible to the naked eye. Then the embroidery master continued to embroider in the center of the petals. She used to embroider from the outer edge to the center. The five silk embroidery threads are graded from fuchsia to light pink, and multiple knotted stitches are applied from time to time to create the ideal color gradation. The result is the embroidered dot pattern accumulated on the fabric, called the ‘micro-pointillism’ technique, which is a precise masterpiece. The dial decoration of this watch took a total of 40 hours to complete the meticulous embroidery process, so that the masterpiece of clocks and embroidery will become a new member of a series of outstanding watches produced by Piaget since 1874.
The master of embroidery uses colored silk threads and micro-dot drawing techniques to embroider. From time to time, multiple knotting stitches are used to create a lifelike Yves Piaget rose.
  Piaget Altiplano 38mm rose embroidered watch, 38mm diameter, 18K white gold case, set with 78 round diamonds (approx. 0.7 carat), white silk dial decorated with colored silk embroidery and silver Filet embroidery The Yves Piaget rose embroidered by the technique is equipped with Piaget 430P ultra-thin manual winding movement. It is limited to 18 pieces worldwide and numbered G0A40247.

A masterpiece of glazed fire enamel combined with engraving
   The Yves Piaget rose continues to enchant the earl’s design team with its peony-like colors, harmonious petals and soft sensual floral fragrance. And they often use a unique combination of watch creation to highlight the incomparable Yves Piaget rose. This year, Piaget once again combined different unique craftsmanship with enamel painting art to blend tapestry and carving skills. Enamel is a distant relative of crystal, and its origins can be traced back to the Mediterranean coast. In ancient times, it was first used to beautify jewellery and necklaces, and then spread throughout Europe. Enamel is made of glass, adding metal oxides to add color to it, and it can be adjusted to endless colors. However, it is most famous for its vividness and delicateness of drawing, and its durability without aging the time.
   Piaget Altiplano 38mm watch, 38mm diameter, 18K white gold case set with 78 round diamonds (approx. 0.7 carat), silver dial with carved Yves Piaget rose, painted in bright fire enamel to show the rose’s leisurely and magnificent posture Mining, equipped with Piaget 430P ultra-thin manual refining movement, limited to 18 pieces worldwide, number G0A40248.
   The original state of the enamel is lumpy or powdery. Before use, it is ground into a finer powder with a pestle and a bowl, and then thoroughly washed. After washing, the enamel can be continuously applied in multiple layers on the surface of objects for decoration. A key step in making the dial is glazing to ensure that the enamel is firmly attached to the carcass. After that, the latter will be placed in a furnace with a temperature of 800 degrees Celsius, depending on the circumstances, and the burning limit will be between 40 and 60 seconds. This is what the former alchemist called ‘great work’. It is an incredible process involving material changes. All the changes took place in seconds, and an extra second could cause cracks in the surface of the enamel, which forced the enamel painter to abandon his efforts.

   The bottom of the dial is pre-engraved with the decorative pattern corresponding to the Yves Piaget rose pattern, and then added with the sun radial machine-engraved pattern to accentuate the flower outline, and then the surface is coated with a layer of enamel and glaze. The engraved textures at different heights make the enamel inlay appear variable thickness, creating a thicker or lighter pink shade. After the last layer of glaze is completed, another equally delicate procedure can be started: the final grinding and polishing process. The eternal enamel-painted rose of the Great Fire enamel shows its appearance, shining brightly between the vivid and magnificent halo and the bright and timeless colors. It is a quietly praised gesture for the Piaget Altiplano series Watches add color.

Richard Mille Launches Proart Factory In Les Breuleux

The Proart factory is an important strategic tool for Richard Mille, closely aligned with the development layout of the brand, allowing the brand to be closer to the needs of its target market in terms of human or logistics. Richard Mille has produced a small number of watches in the past few years, which have witnessed the take-off of technological levels, such as the RM 039 flyback chronograph E6-B flight calculator watch. The technology is extremely complicated and the performance is extremely excellent. The limited number of watches with such strict technical requirements can only be developed by the watch factory.

 The watch factory was built with the latest environmentally-friendly technology materials, and it took two years to complete, especially in terms of building materials, using excellent materials like soil. Although some of the planning and renovation projects are still in progress, the internal and long-term operations have already begun. Nearly thirty CNC machine tool personnel, inspection personnel and polishing workers have each taken their place. Under the management of Alain Varrin, the new site will officially begin operations in April.
