Geneva ’08: Piaget’s Altiplano 40mm
The new Altiplano watch is elegant and understated, with only the small seconds sub-dial at 10 o’clock and the case diameter breaking the mould.
For Piaget, this is not the whole story , as the brand is trying to have its cake and eat it too.
Over the years, the brandâ€™s expertise in ultra-thin mechanical watches and its investments in its own in-house know-how have been well-documented.
The new Altiplano watch embodies all these things, with a manufacture movement â€“ caliber 838P â€“ measuring a mere 2.5mm thick married to case in very contemporary dimensions (40mm).
As is the norm with this collection, the watch is elegant and understated, with only the small seconds sub-dial at 10 oâ€™clock and the case diameter breaking the mould. It is available in both white gold and pink gold, with a limited edition in platinum.
