Ethan Hawke, with his exceptional talents as a screenwriter and actor, has earned multiple Oscar nominations. His latest film, “Strange Way of Life,” directed by Pedro Almodóvar, will be showcased in the Official Selection at Cannes as a world premiere. The film, set in the captivating landscapes of southern Spain, takes audiences on a thrilling Western adventure. On this momentous occasion, Ethan Hawke graces his wrist with the elegant Piaget Altiplano Ultimate High Jewelry timepiece.
The Altiplano Ultimate High Jewelry Watch, measuring 38mm, is crafted in white gold and adorned with meticulously selected baguette-cut and brilliant-cut diamonds, totaling 5.83 carats. Powered by the groundbreaking Piaget 900D Manufacture movement, this ultra-thin manual-winding mechanical watch showcases exceptional craftsmanship. The bottom plate and bridges are seamlessly integrated into the case-middle, and they have been meticulously set with snow-set diamonds, a process that demands four days of painstaking work. The off-centered dial is encircled by baguette-cut diamonds, forming a stunning full circle, while the back of the white gold case features a delicate line of round diamonds, perfectly complemented by the gem-setting of the folding clasp.
Piaget’s collaboration with Ethan Hawke at the Festival de Cannes is a testament to the brand’s unwavering commitment to timeless elegance and the art of watchmaking. The marriage of Piaget’s exquisite creations and the world of cinema is a match made in heaven, showcasing the harmonious convergence of craftsmanship and storytelling. As the curtain rises at the Festival de Cannes, Piaget takes center stage, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts and minds of cinephiles and connoisseurs alike.
