For the fourth consecutive time, Piaget is supporting the Only Watch charity auction. This exceptional event, held every two years in Monaco during the Monaco Yacht Show, is under the patronage of HSH Prince Albert II. All the proceeds from this auction go to support research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This disease is characterized by a progressive weakening of the muscles which results in respiratory and cardiac problems which can prove fatal to children.
The quest for excellence and the development of new calibres illustrates Piaget’s capacity for innovation. Its unique ultra-thin achievements as well as its creative interpretations of the finest horological complications establish the brand at the very peak of watch movement manufacturing traditions. Calibre 838P Skeleton is one of these creations that highlight the brilliant skill of the in-house artisans. This year, for Only Watch 2011, Piaget is offering for the first time an Altiplano Skeleton with a black PVD treatment. In accordance with the tradition of this charity auction, the Altiplano Only Watch 2011 is a one-of-a kind creation.
Prior to the auction that will take place during the Monaco Yacht Show on September 22nd; the public will have the opportunity to discover the Altiplano Skeleton, and the other 19 participating watches, in various locations around the world.
