Piaget grows its rich Altiplano assortment with two watches in pink gold with lively blue dials, with or without precious stones on the bezel. As quite possibly the most enticing recommendations of a dress watch for the two people, the Altiplano has an ideal measurement of 38mm and a super thin outline of simply 6mm. Furthermore, these new forms add the additional glow that was absent on the white dial model we previously checked on . Let’s take a gander at these new Piaget Altiplano 38mm Hand-Wound Blue and Pink Gold.
Master of Ultra-Thin
Piaget is eminent as an assembling of super meager types. In 1957 Piaget pioneered a path in the field of super slender developments with its type 9P, a hand-wound development with an anorexic profile of simply 2mm. After three years, Piaget delivered its type 12P, this time a programmed development with a thickness of simply 2.3mm. Obviously, this was a long time before the appearance of CNC machines. Despite the fact that there are other competitors in the progressing skirmish of super dainty developments, Piaget was the forerunner and appreciates a sixty-year history of slim developments. In 2013, Piaget presented its type 430P, the most slender programmed development in its day, and in 2018 the record-breaking Altiplano Ultimate Concept with an incredibly flimsy development/case with a stature of simply 2mm – which unexpectedly is currently being created in bespoke versions for an extremely predetermined number of clients.
The 2020 oddities come in 18k rose gold cases with a 38mm breadth and a lean 6mm tallness, ideal extents for a dress watch. A straightforward round case with straight hauls and cleaned surfaces, there are no unnecessary components to occupy from the virtue of the plan. Accessible with 78 splendid cut jewels set in the bezel or with a plain gold cleaned bezel, the watch functions admirably with people the same. The watch is likewise especially light on the wrist: the metal content of the model with jewels tips the scales at 35.9 grams while the non-precious stone model weighs 35.1 g.
Forget about a little seconds counters, date windows and even moment tracks. The Piaget Altiplano is an exercise in moderation passing on the quintessence of time: hours and minutes, full stop. Compared to the restraint of the white dial Altiplano model , the blue enamel dial with its sunray design exuding from the middle breathes life into the watch and looks dazzling with the warm pink gold case. Another distinction is the replacement of the painted rod records for applied gold to coordinate the metal of the case. Once more, nothing unnecessary diverts from the exquisite straightforwardness of the dial and the solitary engravings are Piaget and Swiss Made.
When Piaget presented the Altiplano 900P in 2013 controlled by manual-winding type 430P, it set the world precedent as the most slender wristwatch at that point. As a relative of the amazing type 9P, the 430P is incredibly slim and has a thickness of simply 2.1mm. Albeit the caseback is fixed – to maintain a strategic distance from any extra millimeters sneaking in with a sapphire precious stone caseback – the development is finished with round Côtes de Genève on the scaffolds and equilibrium chicken, slanted edges on all extensions, heat-blued screws and roundabout graining on the mainplate. Running at a recurrence of 21,600vph, the development offers a force hold of roughly 43 hours.
