Limited series 100 ex Piaget presents a new watch with its novel in-house Piaget caliber 860P automatic movement with a 72 hour power reserve. The striking composure of the symmetrical design emphasizes the moon phase display with a heat formed cratered white gold moon plate. Super heated gold will form an uneven rough look. This typically undesirable look is integrated cleverly in this instance. Emphasis of the moon surface is surrounded by a darkened plate that makes a full revolution each 29 and a half days; enhancing the illusion of the moon in the sky. The unique approach taken in the Emperador Coussin Grande Luna is that the dark shape plate moves rather than the moon disc itself. This gives the moon phase a new and refreshing look that is easy to appreciate visually. The Piaget Emperador Coussin case is famous for its best-in-industry cushion shape has been enlarged to a width of 46.5mm with the crown (the dial is 43mm wide); a large size for the typically conservative watch size brand. The case itself is a pleasing mixture of polished and brushed white gold, with an impeccably styled minimalist dial. Traditional faceted Piaget hands are sharp and assertive, allowing for a plainly legible case. Piaget has a talent for mixing shapes and textures creating a timeless, yet modern look that is clearly epitomized in the Emperador Coussin Grande Luna watch. This is an almost perfect luxury watch for formal occasions and boardroom meetings. Easy reading combined with the visual interest of the daily moon phase makes for another desirable timepiece from Piaget.
