Thinner and lighter is a major trend in the development of modern timepieces. Ultra-thin timepieces are not only the representative of the brand’s outstanding craftsmanship, but also its sincere expression to mechanical timepiece lovers. In 1957, Piaget launched the first ultra-thin watch with a slim case never seen before, combined with a simple dial, to achieve an elegant and subtle shape and subvert the watchmaking world, reinterpreting the meaning of elegance. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of this model of watchmaking, Piaget launched the Piaget Altiplano Anniversary series at the Geneva Watch Salon in 2017, reappearing the glory of the time. Among them, there is this watch Piaget Altiplano series manual winding 38 mm watch that I want to introduce to you today. (Watch model: G0A42107)
Simple and concise
Left: 43mm automatic model Right: 38mm manual winding model
The 43mm automatic mechanical model and 38mm manual mechanical model introduced this time are based on the aesthetic style of Piaget’s first ultra-thin watch. The original series logo in the middle of the dial, gold hour markers and central cross pattern, A tribute to the tradition of the series. In appearance, the biggest difference between the two watches is that the 43mm automatic mechanical Piaget logo is marked with ‘Automatique’ on the logo, which can be easily identified. The integration of Piaget Blue and Swashplate fully demonstrates the endless creativity of the brand, while meeting contemporary needs, it can also reshape the classics.
Piaget Blue Cross Watch Display
In today’s popular watches, the design of the swashplate is relatively rare. Just like this watch, from the top to the bottom, it presents an unprecedented sense of timepiece. In addition, the design of the swashplate seems to divide the watch face into four areas, making the time display more intuitive and clear, and improving the wearer’s viewing efficiency from the side.
18K White Gold Case
The case with a diameter of 38 mm is made of 18K white gold. After polishing, it has a charming luster and is very beautiful. The contour of the case is slender, and the perfect radian presents an attractive texture.
18K White Gold Crown
The crown is engraved with Piaget’s LOGO ‘P’ pattern, which has a strong sense of design, adding a unique style to the watch. The non-slip texture design of the crown, after a special treatment, is very good to the touch, which facilitates the time adjustment operation of the watch.
Deep Piaget Blue Dial
The unique Piaget blue dial is deep and full of appeal. It lies between cobalt blue and midnight blue to enhance the watch’s ornamental glory, and is contrasted with the sun’s radial engraving, which is both retro and elegant. Against the backdrop of Piaget’s blue dial, the understated blue cross pattern from Piaget’s collection styles echoes the classic white gold hour markers and slender Button hands, creating a charming visual effect. In addition, the addition of the blue cross design also makes the platinum hour markers and Button hands more three-dimensional, so that the entire dial shows a more retro and classic side.
Piaget 430P movement with only 2.1 mm thickness
The close-end technology can well protect the security of the watch movement. Equipped with the second-generation manual-winding movement 430P, which is designed, developed, produced and assembled by Piaget Watchmaking Workshop, it continues the outstanding design and structure of the legendary 9P movement with precise timing and superior performance.
Impressive blue alligator strap
Equipped with a blue alligator leather strap, the style is vivid and exquisite, and the visual texture is very strong compared with the traditional strap. And with 18K white gold pin buckle buckle, it can protect the watch well on the wrist, not easy to fall, and full of reliability.
