Black Tie series case design is unique, elegant and unique, including Emperador, Emperador Coussin, Protocole, Rectangle à l’ Ancienne models, now added to the Gouverneur series with leather strap. Each Black Tie watch model is carefully decorated on the case, movement and dial. These ingenious techniques are all made by Piaget. They are not limited to the movement itself, but also include the production of original watch cases. The Black Tie watch series not only showcases the mechanical movement of Piaget’s fine watchmaking workshops, but also incorporates new and complicated functions developed each year, making each timepiece unique.
Balance beauty and structural modeling
The Gouverneur watch series uses round and oval designs to cleverly arrange unique aesthetic structures to create a balanced visual effect.
The oval is placed in a circle, and the circle is integrated into the oval. From the outside to the center of the dial, the Gouverneur watch displays an elegant and harmonious shape. The round case with the oval dial opening, and the circular design placed in the center of the dial, these superimposed shapes make the Gouverneur series show its unique temperament, and add meticulous decoration and logo to the styling structure.
For a long time, painters, sculptors, and architects have adopted superimposed shapes, and they have tried to strike a balance between circles and ovals. The circle is a symbol of perfection and absolute beauty. Circles can bring endless changes and present infinite motion. The oval shape is reminiscent of symbolic meanings such as innovation and protection. If these two shapes balance each other, their creative changes cannot be ignored. Countless artists have the same design experience, and many of the modeling creations in art history are based on the characteristics of this balanced state.
Piaget’s fine watchmaking workshop, combining traditional craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology, is committed to creating extraordinary styling designs, and uses the Gouverneur series to show new perspectives. By referring to many art works, Piaget designers are inspired by them.
The Gouverneur series originates from the inheritance of the technology and knowledge of two generations of designers, and the two also explore different artistic inspirations in person.
My father designed the black Tie series of watches, and my son created a variety of dials, which made Piaget’s unique styling elements still stand today, and transformed into a timeless style. It is true that the balanced design of the watch is based on the communication between the two generations, which makes Piaget’s new Gouverneur collection embody an immortal beauty.
The unique new Piaget Gouverneur watch series injects the aesthetic elements of the round shape and shows the unique flexibility of the oval, and its artistic orientation is meticulously integrated into various fashionable and elegant timepieces.
