Specially created for the Only Watch 2009 auction to be held in Monaco in September, this watch exposes a peculiar “moon surface” as a part of the moon phase indicator.
A heat process, applied by Piaget, produces the “cratered appearance” on the white gold that is intended to look like the moon surface. The exclusive timepiece reveals a foot print “left” on the moon, a symbol of the first step on the moon Neil Armstrong made.
The moon phase display on the dial is in the prime focus in this very model, for it happens to be the largest display of the kind on the market.
The Piaget watch is animated by the in-house Caliber 860P self-winding movement. The model also provides a 72-hour power reserve.
Sculptured in 18k red gold and with the case measuring over 46mm, this exclusive Piaget timepiece to be introduced at the Only Watch 2009 auction, features special engravings to commemorate this very event on its back side.
The center of the dial also demonstrates 18k white gold, just as well used for the moon phase.
The disc, covering both the moon and the rest of the watch face, is performed in beautiful blue with red gold hands and hour markers.
The Piaget Emperador Coussin Grande Luna watch stands out due to its sophisticated cushion shape and the outstanding moon phase detail, completing this unique interpretation, limited to one piece only.
