It’s all there in The 355, the American spy film featuring a host of international spies — glamorous women spies —and the house of Piaget. The film, which was released on January 7th, brings together a smashing international cast that includes Jessica Chastain playing a CIA agent who teams up with a German agent played by Diane Kruger, a computer specialist played by Lupita Nyong’o and and a Colombian psychologist played by Penélope Cruz. Piaget is the film’s exclusive watch and jewelry partner.

Piaget isn’t new to Hollywood. Elizabeth Taylor was charmed by the house’s colored stones and brilliant diamonds. Loyal Piaget watch wearers have included Sammy Davis Jr., Cary Grant and Roger Moore. Meanwhile Jessica Chastain has been part of the Piaget family since 2015. Piaget plays a starring role throughout The 355 with its iconic Altiplano and Possession collections as well as with its beautiful high jewelry creations.

The watch is outfitted with a black alligator leather strap with an 18K white gold ardillon buckle. Defying the limits of feasibility, Piaget provides a new demonstration of its supremacy in the field of ultra-thin watchmaking, stemming from the excellence of its two integrated Manufactures. At a mere 4.30 mm thick, the Altiplano Ultimate Automatic expresses boldness and a constant quest for infinite slenderness, as well as for the elegance and refinement prized by Piaget. Engaged in an iconic dialogue, movement and case form an indivisible whole, featuring tolerances that have been pushed to their limits and setting a new record. The world’s slimmest self-winding Watch to date, the Altiplano Ultimate Automatic embodies this pinnacle of contemporary elegance. Photo courtesy Piaget. Handout via The Gourmet Gazette
