Pieces for the Oscars

    Scott Cooper Also Wear Piaget

<p><span class="xn-location">LOS ANGELES</span>, <span class="xn-chron">March 8</span> /CNW/ -- To help ensure that "The Hurt Locker's" <span class="xn-person">Jeremy Renner</span> looked every bit the leading man for the 82nd annual Academy Awards, Piaget pulled out all the stops for the long-time friend of the brand.  The renowned Swiss jeweler and watchmaker flew in its new Altiplano 43 Automatic timepiece direct from the workshop in <span class="xn-location">Geneva</span>.  Renner is the first man to ever wear the watch, which just set a record as the world's thinnest automatic timepiece and the world's thinnest automatic movement. Already being heralded as the 'little black dress' of fine timepieces, the new white gold Altiplano 43 with a hand-engraved guilloche dial was the perfect finishing touch for Renner's Oscar look, slipping easily and elegantly beneath the sleeve of his tuxedo.</p>

<p>For what was arguably the biggest night of his life, <span class="xn-person">Jeremy Renner</span> brought his mother, Valerie Clearely, as his date.  Piaget was proud to help get her red carpet-ready by dressing her diamonds for the evening.  The firm's newest Limelight Jazz Party earrings, crafted in white gold and set with diamonds and black spinels, beautifully complimented Piaget's Limelight pendant set with 136 diamonds and black onyx.  On her wrist, a dazzling Piaget Protocole XLS watch in white gold, paved with more than 650 diamonds.</p>
<p>No stranger to the red carpet, <span class="xn-person">Mariah Carey</span> and her husband <span class="xn-person">Nick Cannon</span> also turned to Piaget for Oscar-worthy timepieces.  The multi-platinum singer and star of "Precious" chose Piaget's newest Limelight Jazz Party cuff watch in white gold and set with 591 brilliant-cut diamonds and 3 pear-shaped diamond drops. <span class="xn-person">Mr. Cannon</span> opted for Piaget's Altiplano Double Jeu in white gold and set with 68 diamonds.  Piaget was also the timepiece of choice for two men responsible for the Oscar-nominated film, "Crazy Heart".  Both T Bone Burnett, who won the Academy Award for Best Music (Original Song), and <span class="xn-person">Scott Cooper</span>, the film's Director, chose Piaget Altiplano watches to accent their Oscar black tie looks.</p>
