Power reserve: 55 h, 21600 variations / hours
Inspired by the unexpected beauty and strength of nature, the Metaphoria collection by Piaget explores, as always with the Maison, this theme in high jewelry and high watchmaking creations. Among these masterpieces lies the magnetic Undulata watch.
Subtly mixing the green, blue and iridescent hues into one hypnotic dial, the French artist Rose Saneuil created a miniature marquetry of volume, textures and colors. This meticulous piece includes several layers of wood, straw and leather, patiently assembled by hand to create a mesmerizing effect to the signature Piaget flying tourbillon manufacture movement. For this limited edition of 8 pieces in white gold and diamonds, she carefully cuts each element before incrusting them one at a time on the dial. This diligent operation requires precision and patience, as these infinitely thin materials must perfectly fit. It took her over 44 hours to create this intricate dial.
