In 2012, on the occasion of the Lunar New Year, Piaget welcomed the year of the dragon with a special capsule collection of exceptional timepieces. As the 12-year cycle begins again, that spirit of daring creativity, remarkable sophistication, and unexpected beauty is awakened once more for a special Lunar New Year capsule collection dedicated to the Dragon & Phoenix magnetic energies.
A symbol of power, strength, and prosperity, the Dragon is among the most celebrated and emblematic Chinese zodiac symbols. No wonder that for Piaget’s 2012 commemorative Lunar New Year collection, the Maison created 24 references that included four high watchmaking complications, eight Metiers d’Art timepieces, and two High Jewellery secret watches.

Piaget now marks the start of another 12-year cycle with a spectacular new capsule collection that, again, pays tribute to the Dragon and Phoenix, a Chinese symbol of masculinity and femininity, strength and power, hope and rebirth, and ultimate harmony and balance.
Featuring 10 daring designs of exceptional watches and High Jewellery pieces that top off with a pair of extravagant and very exclusive, made-to-order High Jewellery cuff watches, each creation brims with emotion and exuberance, joyfully channelling the codes of the Maison while celebrating unparalleled Metiers d’Art and watchmaking savoir-faire.

Each of these 38-piece limited edition timepieces is a perfect contemporary interpretation of the Lunar New Year.
