This year, Piaget is celebrating Chinese New Year and the Year of the Ox with a special edition of its ultra-thin Altiplano timepiece with a grand-feu cloisonné dial featuring an ox, crafted by the celebrated artist Anita Porchet – Piaget Altiplano Year of the Ox. Continuing the celebrations, Piaget is also presenting a new Limelight Stella moon-phase watch and a beautiful selection of Possession watch and jewellery.

2021 – The Year of the Ox

The ox is praised in Chinese culture for its hard-working nature, its dependability, and its sheer strength, enabling farmers to get the most out of their land. People born in the year of the ox – recent years include 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, and 2009 – show these positive traits too. They are honest, courageous, diligent, and have a high sense of responsibility. Whatever setbacks come their way, they never give up and advance surely and steadily to reach their goals.

Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is the most important holiday on the Chinese calendar, officially starting on February 12th, 2021, and running until February 22nd. Traditional dishes and desserts, firecrackers to ward away evil spirits, and the lantern festival are all part of this annual celebration that sees all family members returning to their hometown for the festivities. Celebrating, sharing, socialising, and spending time with family are all values that Piaget holds dear too and it joins the merriment with several new extraordinary creations.

To honour this strong and dependable zodiac animal, Piaget has immortalised the ox on the dial of one of its most iconic timepieces – the Altiplano – using grand-feu cloisonné enamel. The dial has been created by the famous master-enameller, Anita Porchet. This 4000-year-old decorative art starts with a transfer of the design onto the surface of the dial using gold ribbons to create miniature partitions, or cloisons, in which the different enamel pigments are placed. The dial is then fired in the kiln multiple times at temperatures between 820oC and 850oC. Once finished, the dial is varnished, capturing the image forever.

This ultra-thin 38mm timepiece comes in an 18-karat white gold case adorned with 78 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 0.71 ct.) and is powered by the brand’s exceptional 430P hand-wound movement that measures a mere 2.1mm in thickness. It is paired with an elegant black leather strap that is fitted with an 18-karat white gold pin buckle.
