See the and listen to the Piaget Emperador Coussin Ultra-Thin Minute Repeater presented at SIHH 2013

Piaget-CEO Philippe Léopold-Metzger just showed me his latest Masterpiece. The Emperador Coussin Ultra-Thin Minute Repeater was done completely in-house by Piaget and believe me the Piaget-Team is proud of his work.

The new Piaget watch sets a new double record for slenderness in its category and it fulfills the highest level of hand-crafted finishing. With 4,8 mm for its calibre and 9,4 mm for its case the Emperador Coussin Ultra-Thin Minute Repeater sets new standards.

 

Piaget-CEO Philippe Léopold-Metzger presented me the watch this evening at the SIHH 2013 in Geneva and I do now invite you to see the new minute repeater and to listen to its exceptional sound.
