PIAGET SECRETS AND LIGHTS ALTIPLANO KING OF THE DESERT, THE FALCON
Piaget unveils a special series for connoisseurs in Kuwait, inspired by the King of the desert; the Falcon
Inspired by one of the significant themes of the shimmering Secrets and Lights collection, Swiss watchmaker and jeweller Piaget unveiled a special timepiece created on order for Kuwait. Available at the Piaget Boutique in Salhiya Mall, the timepiece draws its inspiration from the bird that is often referred to as the King of the desert; the Falcon. Piaget’s Secrets and Lights collection celebrates the mysterious and captivating light effects born of an invisible time and has the Falcon among one of its most popular themes.
Acute eyes, tapered wings, keen heels ... here the noble falcon reigns over the steppes. Bringing its majestic strength to the wrist and impressing with its piercing gaze, the majestic bird is the epitome of royalty in this timepiece. This is a wristwatch that is rife with precision due to the challenge of combining Piaget’s unique Métiers D’art with the record-breaking ultra-thin mechanical hand-wound movement 830p. A further highlight is the formation of the base in regal black enamel, one of the toughest colours to master. Truly bringing the falcon to life with added realism are the details on the feathers and the utilization of the Onyx that has been used to craft the intense eyes of the falcon. Rounding off the Altiplano 40mm timepiece are the finishing touches of alternating polish and matte, thereby lending the royal piece much more depth.
The stunning timepiece that is limited to 27 pieces only, pays perfect tribute to the watchmaker’s know-how and imperial bird that is a proud part of the region’s heritage.
