The Piaget Emperador Coussin XL 700P is one of the recent releases by the renowned Swiss luxury watchmaker. The brand has established itself as a leading producer of exceptional watches, delivering fine quality watches that are both durable and stylish. Piaget invested 2 years of research in the development of the watch, taking every measure to ensure that the watch not only meets the aesthetic appeal expectations, but its functional requirements as well.
Unlike conventional mechanical watches, the Piaget Emperador Coussin XL 700P doesn’t have an escarpment. The gear at the end of the train turns a small disk upon which two permanent magnets are mounted. The permanent magnets make their turns inside of a bracket that holds two small electromagnets. The set up that resembles the Faraday Generator generates a current when the movement occurs. The generator’s rotation and the self-winding mechanical movement is controlled by a high frequency quartz element.
The set-up has been designed to deliver total precision while ensuring protection from external factors such as gravity and magnetic fields.
The Piaget brand of watches are known for exceptionally slim cases. With the Piaget Emperador Coussin XL 700P however, the mechanical setup that included an inhouse made movement mechanism needed a larger case. To contain all the elements of the watch while maintaining the aesthetic appeal, the designers of the watch developed a stepped gold case. This unique design aims at slimming down the case of the watch. The thickness of the movement is 5.5mm while the case spans approximately double that. The diameter of the watch measures 46.5mm and is cushion shaped for comfort and beauty.
The dial of the Piaget Emperador Coussin XL 700P is one of its features that sets it apart from most of the other luxury watches. Unlike most watches that conceal the movement mechanism under a gorgeous dial, the Piaget Emperador Coussin XL 700P lets you have a peak of the mechanism. Its micro-rotor is positioned on the 9-10 o’clock position as well as the 12-2 o’clock position. The generator on the other hand is suspended under the triple armed bridge.
The hands and other elements of the dial are brightly colored and fashionably set on the dark colored dial. This creates a contrast that makes it very easy to get readings from the watch. Besides the ease of readability factor, this feature enhances the visual allure of the watch.
Nothing brings out the true beauty of the Piaget Emperador Coussin XL 700P better than its astonishing bezel. Combining black ADLC-coated bezel and 18k white gold, the bezel gives the watch an elegant sporty look.
The back of the watch features a power reserve indicator that is visible through the transparent case.
Piaget Emperador Coussin XL 700P comes with a black alligator strap. The strap is made of fine quality material that is very soft and strong at the same time. There is also a clasp for fastening it on the wrist.
