More than a watch, for the woman who wears it, Possession is a jewel. Representing life and sharing, through its tactile aspect and the delicate dance of its dial, the Possession,is a companion you cherish. Its curves and movements symbolize the perpetual circle of life and the most beautiful adventures.Martin Guillet - Winner of the Piaget - HEAD Young Talents prize
