THE HEART OF SAMARKAND. Among the Piaget Secrets & Lights masterpieces unveiled during the last Watches & Wonders, the rectangular-cased Emperador Tourbillon XL Miniature Enamel watch drew especially huge crowds of admirers
Beautiful enamel depictions of the iconic Registan public square and the Madrasahs certainly does justice to the heart of the ancient city of Samarkand, Uzbekistan.
The historic town played a big role during the Silk Road era, prospering from traditional crafts, such as gold embroidery, engraving and ceramics.
A different kind of craftsmanship, in this case Swiss horology, takes center stage in the creation of these watches. The exquisite tourbillon at 12 o’clock—the in-house caliber 602P’s tour de force—is a testament to Piaget’s exceptional watchmaking.
Up to three units have been produced for both the 18K white gold and pink gold versions.
