Precision and beauty, audacity and sophistication… These singular alliances make Piaget a natural participant in one of the most celebrated event in cinema: the Festival de Cannes.

Piaget’s history is paved with episodes that solidified the Maison’s relationship with cinema throughout the years. Entertaining a relationship with this creative world and its most revered icons, Piaget’s watches and jewels have been immortalized at the wrists, necks, fingers or ears of the most talented artists of their time.

To celebrate the opening of the 75th Festival de Cannes, Piaget is honoured to collaborate with two great international artists, Forest Whitaker and Katherine Langford.

FOREST WHITAKER

The American award-winning actor, director and film producer, revelled in Cannes at 27 years old in Clint Eastwood’s Bird, will be this years’ Festival’s guest of honour.

He will receive the Honorary Palme d’Or, which will pay tribute to his inspiring artistic career and his strong commitment to humanitarian causes.

For this first evening, Forest Whitaker wears an elegant Piaget Polo Emperador Tourbillon Watch on his wrist.

Piaget Polo Emperador Tourbillon Watch
This model is the very expression of everything that Piaget carries in its genes: a unique expertise in the field of the ultra-thin skeleton movement, linked to a desire to develop calibres with complications that are ever more innovative and creative. Drawing the inspiration for its features from the Piaget 1270P calibre – one of the thinnest self-winding tourbillon movement in the world, Piaget’s first ultra-thin self-winding tourbillon skeleton movement with a thickness of just 5.05 mm, offers technical and design. The Piaget Polo Emperador tourbillon skeleton self-winding watch has one of the thinnest profile on the market (8.85 mm). The 1270S comes in two versions: a modern interpretation and a more exclusive version featuring a gold movement enriched by the highest level of finishes.

About Piaget
Piaget epitomizes daring creativity – a quality that has continued to permeate through the Maison since its beginnings in 1874. From his first workshop in La Côte-aux-Fées, Georges-Edouard Piaget devoted himself to crafting high-precision movements in a feat that formed the very foundations of our pioneering name. In the late 1950s, Piaget unveiled the ultra-thin movements that would later become the Maison’s trademark and the cornerstone of the Altiplano collection. As a true innovator of the watch and jewellery world, Piaget strongly believed in creativity and artistic values. It is within the walls of our “Ateliers de l’Extraordinaire” where master artisans continue to harness rare skills that have been preserved and perfected from generation to generation, transforming gold, stones and precious gems into dazzling works of art. Through its pursuit of masterful craftsmanship, the Maison has created emblems of daring excellence channeled into its collections including Altiplano, Piaget Polo, Limelight Gala, Possession, Piaget Sunlight, Piaget Rose and Extremely Piaget.
