Well-known Watch To Visit Piaget’s Factory To Geneva

The history of Piaget watches can be traced back to 1874. It was founded by Georges-Edouard Piaget, who is only 19 years old, and uses his name as the brand name. I believe that everyone has I heard that its main product line is not only its proud watch products, but also jewellery products that fascinate women. The editor of the watch house was fortunate to be invited by Piaget to visit the Piaget Swiss factory in August. Is the Piaget brand? Then please continue reading my tour of Piaget.

  Our tour of Piaget Watch Factory was divided into Beijing Media and Shanghai Media. We set off from Beijing or Shanghai and finally gathered in Geneva. Our Beijing Media first flew directly from Beijing to Charles de Gaulle Airport, which is known as the fashion capital. This is A fascinating city, romance, fashion, culture, literacy and more.

  The famous Eiffel Tower model can be seen everywhere in Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport besides a lot of luxury stores. Various and various color models can be bought here, but take a closer look. Many of them are made in China . Luxury bags do not even need to say that the ladies of our colleagues started their ‘dream’ journey as soon as they got off the plane.

  After a short stop at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport, we made a flight to Geneva, the second largest city in Switzerland. In addition to the beautiful Lake Geneva, Geneva is the most famous international city in which international institutions gather. Of course, it is also the most famous clock and bank. Capital.

  Approaching Geneva, we can see the snow-capped mountains surrounding Geneva from a bird’s-eye view. The two main mountains around Geneva are the Alps and the Jura Mountains. The snow-capped peaks surround Geneva, making Geneva’s temperature suitable. The lowest temperature in January is -1 ℃, and the highest temperature in July is 26 ℃.

From the air, the greenery in Geneva is still in place, and the entire city is divided by large vegetation.

  If you want to understand the characteristics or culture of a city, you can see it at its airport. We have just arrived at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. Everywhere we see Eiffel Tower models. When we arrive at Geneva airport, we can see watch posters everywhere. The picture above is The Piaget Altiplano G0A35130 watch I took at Geneva Airport. This watch is a model of contemporary ultra-thin watches. It is equipped with a movement thickness of only 2.35 mm, which is the thinnest automatic winding in the watch market today. The movement, the thickness of the entire watch is only 5.25 millimeters. It is the thinnest watch product among ultra-thin watches. The dial is designed with three layers of silver and has a small second hand at four o’clock, which is noble and elegant.

  The count’s detailed schedule has given us a warmth to people in other countries. The reception staff of the count has already waited for us at the airport early. Since we and the media friends in Shanghai did not arrive at the same time, we arranged two buses. The car is waiting at the airport.

  The internal greening of Geneva city is also better. Most of the cars driving on the road are European cars. Japanese cars are rarely seen in the country. Renault, Alfa Romeo, Fiat and others are not very common in China.

  After a short trip, we came to the President Wilson Hotel in a very good location. This hotel is a five-star hotel next to Lake Geneva, with convenient transportation and beautiful scenery.

  After the check-in, the little friends can’t wait to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the beautiful Lake Geneva. The clear water of the lake is full of fascinating cruises.

Enamel watch

    In recent years, enamel watches have gradually entered an ascending channel, with increasingly rich varieties and increasing numbers (both domestic brands and Swiss brands are doing), but the price has always remained firm, so it has also involved many topics such as appreciation, investment, and collection. In fact, to ask why the enamel watch is so attractive and so unattainable, it is nothing more than two words, one is ‘fine’ and the other is ‘rare’. This is also the commonality of all artworks and luxury goods, but This is particularly true on enamel watches. As one of the decorative arts of watches, enamel crafts are various handicrafts combined with practicality and appreciation value made by fine art techniques. They are both material products and have different levels of spiritual aesthetics. As a material product, it reflects the material production and technological development level of a certain era and society; as a spiritual product, its visual image (modeling, color, decoration) reflects the aesthetics of a certain era.
    Watches appear in the ‘Ten Beauty’ recommendation are basically collection-level watches. Note that the collection level refers to a table with complex functions, luxurious materials, scarce production, and memorable meaning, but it may not necessarily be a watch with potential for appreciation. Now many people mention watches, not to mention what functional styles they like, but to ask what kind of watch can appreciate and maintain value, it seems that buying a watch is not for consumption, but for investment. Some foreign media commented that our Chinese are: Can’t even be happy, but still want to pursue happiness? For those who have the money to afford a ‘ten beauty’ watch, happiness is actually very simple, provided that the idea is not too complicated.
