Hello 👋 All, I visited the Piaget Boutique and was going to try the Polo watch, but instead was
mesmerized by the artisanal dials which were collaborations between THE Anita Porchet (enamel) and Dick Steenman (engraver) and an engraved dial by Dick.
The dials are very 3 dimensional but the cases are not too thick. So many details in the dials which are simply amazing ! I really appreciate the dexterity and patience needed for such intricate works and the amount of coordination needed between the two artisans !
The dials are too ornate for my taste, but others may feel differently.
What do you think about these watches ?
Below are photos I took of the watches and online brochures along with the stats for the rose watches.
