Piaget Altiplano watches - A more glitzy, ultra-thin dress watch

Piaget dress watch

Piaget watches are known for their superior quality and the Altiplano series really does add that touch of class! This week we are going to look at this stunning luxury watch collection..

The Piaget Altiplano collection is known for having beautifully elegant ultra-thin watches.  We especially love the Piaget Altiplano ref. G0A39106 34mm. It has a 18K white gold case, silver dial, thin hands and 72-cut diamond bezel, making it understated but extremely sophisticated. The Altiplano watch integrates a calendar and is the thinnest watch in the world in its category.

We know that many luxury watches are worn by both men and women, and the Piaget Altiplano watch collection is also unisex. In 1957, Piaget watches created the world's thinnest mechanical movement, known as calibre 9P, with a thickness of only 2mm. Since then Piaget has been popular around the world. The Altiplano collection began in 1988 and has never changed from being a stunning, ultra-thin dress watch.

Ultra-thin and more subtle on the wrist

Let’s be honest, many men and women take the plunge to invest their hard-earned money in a  very flashy, luxury timepiece. It is for some, a status symbol. Of course many believe the bigger, more expensive watches are better to impress. A prestigious brand is held in high esteem with luxury watch lovers, and are recognised by people who appreciate details of high quality. However it is important to appreciate watches that are a little more subtle on the wrist. Luxury watch brands such as Rolex and Panerai have a rich history in oversized sports watches, however there has been a shift in the popularity of this over the last few years. Whilst women have generally moved to the more masculine, larger timepiece, many men have favoured brands that have created much thinner cases, just like Piaget.

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of its iconic Altiplano watch, Piaget has introduced an amazing colour full of colour to celebrate.

These are extremely special editions and are definitely collectors’ pieces!
