Piaget released one new line with three new models. Despite only releasing three, it was an amazing year. Piaget, master of the ultra thin, now holds the world record for thinnest mechanical watch.
Three versions of the Altiplano were released, the watch that combines the movement with the case, allowing it to be only 3.65mm thick. WOW! The watch is 38mm in diameter, making it a perfect dress watch.
White Gold with a Black Dial
The white gold version comes in a black dial. All the versions have the same thickness, diameter and movement, so there isn't much to say.
White Gold with a White Dial
This version, although a man could still wear it, is more feminine. The diamonds on the bezel make it look like a woman's watch rather than a man's watch.
The yellow gold version has a white dial. The movement is the same but if I may add it has a power reserve of 48 hours, more than one would think a watch so thin would supply.
The watch is just fabulous. They really hit it out of the park by combining the case with the movement, something never done before. With a case 38mm in diameter and 3.65mm thick it is the PERFECT dress watch. Subtle and stylish is the equation to follow and the Altiplano 900P is a textbook version of that. This watch is sure to be very successful in 2014.
