Piaget Altiplano, the radiance of hard stones

For ladies, Piaget presents two new Altiplano models, featuring natural turquoise or opal dial.

In 2017, Piaget celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Altiplano collection and revives one of its style signatures: flamboyant hard stone dials.

In the 1960s, the 9P ultra-thin manual-winding calibre opened up all manner of possibility for ornamentation and colour. Alongside traditional gems such as diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires, the Maison also worked with hard ruby, malachite, lapis lazuli, jade, tiger’s eye, coral and onyx. Their vivid colours enlivened dials and overturned the watch industry’s traditional design codes.

In 2017, the two new Altiplano models flaunt the unique radiance of each stone. The dial of the first model is thus adorned with an age-old gemstone already worn by the pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. Its superlative quality, characterised by a perfectly uniform sky blue colour, is accentuated by white gold set with 72 brilliant-cut diamonds.
Altiplano, l’éclat des pierres dures

Coming in a pink gold case, a second timepiece with a white opal dial reveals a milky background shimmering with iridescent facets, enhanced by a pink gold crown also set with diamonds.

These two models house the mechanical hand-wound Manufacture Piaget 430P Calibre, which is 2.1 mm thick. Offering a 43-hour power reserve, it beats at 21,600 vph (3 Hz) and powers the hours and minutes. Its finishing includes circular Côtes de Genève, circular-grained mainplate, bevelled bridges, and blued screws. Both models are fitted with a white alligator leather strap, with white or pink gold pin buckle, and are produced in a limited edition of 38 pieces each.
