Belles Montres 2011
For the fifth consecutive year, the Manufacture Piaget of Swiss haute horlogerie participated in the Belles Montres event.
This international exhibition of high watchmaking, which took place from 25th to 27th November 2011 at the Carrousel du Louvre, registered a record number of visitors this year. More than 14,500 people came to admire some of the most stunning models of contemporary luxury watchmaking.
This year, Piaget presented the new collection of Altiplano 43mm watches and the Emperador Cushion-shaped tourbillon watch, which holds the world record for the thinnest tourbilllon movement in the world.
In ladies’ watches, the new mini Altiplano watches in white and pink gold and the Altiplano 34mm with a jewel-set small seconds hand were acclaimed by the public. But the star piece of the Manufacture’s collection was to be found in the exhibition of the most beautiful watches in high jewellery. A secret watch, one of Piaget’s specialties, was presented: an exceptional piece inspired by foliage and set with white and yellow diamonds.
The next edition of Belles Montres will take place from 23rd to 25th November 2012.
