Piaget Altiplano High Jewellery watch – 41 mm
As a supreme example of its expertise, all Piaget's watchmaking and jewelry know-how are combined in this exceptional Altiplano model with its record-breaking thickness of only 6.44 mm. Thanks to its sapphire crystal case-back this model majestically exhibits its 1200P caliber, at only 2.35 mm the thinnest self-winding mechanical movement in the world, giving pride of place to its platinum oscillating weight decorated with the Piaget coat-of-arms.
The parameters of this unrivalled caliber epitomize the Piaget's restless avant-garde spirit. Matching its technical versatility, its truly dazzling features set off this creation to perfection, emphasizing the codes of elegance of the Altiplano Collection.
On the dial its slender black baton-shaped hour-markers are thus in marked contrast with the hour-circle with its dazzling baguette-cut diamonds, while the case, its profiles, the horns and even the folding-clasp buckle sparkle with their baguette-cut or brilliant-cut diamonds, while the case back is also set with its row of diamonds.
In all 260 hours of development and 30 hours of gem-setting were required to create this glittering timepiece ringed with diamonds.
Founded in 1874, the Piaget firm has a dual capability - watchmaking and jewellery. One of its watchmaking specialities is ultra-thin movements, and the Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie can boast an outstanding range of calibres of its own make.
At the same time Piaget’s creativeness has consistently risen to the regular production of new jewellery collections. From its two facilities, in La Côte-aux-Fées, in the Neuchâtel Jura and in Plan-les-Ouates, near Geneva city, come the products that a carefully chosen sales network brings to the customer.
