    Inimitable signature in the world of luxury and fine watch making, Piaget has been known for creating timepieces requiring expertise of the highest level.

    Through its harmonious shapes and diamond-setting, the case of the present Piaget Empérador showcases the creativity and skills of Piaget watchmakers. Made of aventurine crystal, the dial through its immaculate condition enhances the rarity of the present watch, giving it a unique identity. Positioned at 6 o’clock, the 18 karat white gold disc displaying the moon phases refers to the surface of the moon, all its craters, and is crafted in order to make each piece unique.
