Th e Art and

Ex­cel­lence col­lec­tions bring to light Pi­aget’s love af­fair with del­i­cate artis­tic crafts, fo­cus­ing this time on gold lace­work, adorn­ing the iconic Alti­plano in this del­i­cate sculp­ture on a hinged cover. The light­ness of the lace­work was cre­ated by in­de­pen­dent French jew­eler Sara Bran, who uses pointed scrib­ing tools and com­passes to map out mo­tifs and etch pat­terns that re­sult in lace­work as fine as su­per-thin thread. To help it fur­ther ra­di­ate, a sea of sparkling mar­quise cut di­a­monds adorns the mo­tif, and the white dial is vis­i­ble through the gold lace pattern. The watch is fit­ted with the 430P move­ment and the pink gold of the 38mm case is ac­cented by a white strap.
