To honor the strength of the ox, Swiss made fake Piaget has immortalized the bovid on the face of one of its most iconic timepieces: the ultra-thin fake Altiplano. For this special edition, an exquisite grand-feu cloisonné enamel dial was created by famous master-enameller Anita Porchet.
This 4,000-year-old decorative art starts with transferring the design onto the surface of the dial using gold ribbons to create miniature partitions, or cloisons, in which different enamel pigments are placed. The dial is then fired in a kiln multiple times at temperatures between 820ºC and 850ºC. Once finished, the dial is varnished, capturing the image forever.
The timepiece itself 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.
