In 1957, Piaget launched an ultra-thin watch that subverted the watchmaking industry. Its slim case has never been seen before, combined with a simple dial. . The 9P manual winding ultra-thin movement contained in the ultra-thin body is only two millimeters thick. Its reliable performance is still widely respected today.
Three years after the 9P manual winding movement was released, the third generation of Piaget founder launched the 12P movement, which is an automatic ultra-thin movement with a thickness of only 2.3 mm and an eccentric miniature automatic pendulum in 24K gold. Tuo. Since then, the 12P movement has been used in men’s watches, while the 9P movement has been used in both men’s and women’s watches. This year, in order to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the brand’s ultra-thin watches, Piaget has launched the 2017 Piaget Altiplano limited edition watch series, which integrates color and gloss into watch design. One of them (model: G0A42052) is particularly attractive.
Pine green dial with rusty green alligator leather strap. This ultra-thin watch shines with bold colors. The polished ultra-thin gold case has a diameter of 40 mm, with simple and elegant gold indexes and slender Button hands. The effect is refreshing, limited to 260 pieces.
The ultra-thin case, on the other hand, does not have a smaller crown, which is very easy to operate and adjust the time.
The rusty green crocodile leather strap has clear lines, and the stitching lines also use green thin threads, which are neat and uniform. 18K polished gold pin buckle for more secure wearing.
From the side of the watch, you can more intuitively feel how thin this watch is. The thickness of the 6.36 mm case is almost the same as the thick lining strap with which it is matched.
The straight lugs are polished on all sides.
The pine green dial, the simple two-handed indication and the 3 o’clock date display layout, are paired with simple and elegant gold hour markers and slender Button hands. When viewed at different angles, a radioactive sheen is visible.
Using Cal.1203P ultra-thin automatic winding movement, based on Cal.1205P movement introduced in 2013, added date display function, thickness is only 3 mm. The eccentric oscillating weight of the movement is engraved with the Piaget brand mark, the bridge is decorated with blue steel screws, the sun radiation decorative gear set, the chamfered bridge, the circular Geneva wave pattern, and the polished round main plate. 44-hour power reserve. At the edge of the case, the limited number of 260 of this watch and the individual number of this watch are engraved.
Summary: Color is the most outstanding feature of this watch, and it will be very fashionable when paired properly. In addition to gold and pine green, this watch also has a combination of gray and white gold; blue and rose gold. In my opinion, the biggest benefit of ultra-thin watches is that they are easily incorporated into the shirt cuffs when worn, and are very comfortable without obstruction. And Piaget’s watch is very suitable for wearing with a shirt, decent, perfect interpretation of belonging to the ultra-thin watch itself.
In addition, there are 34 and 40 mm pink and white gold; 37 and 43 mm blue and white gold models, and the prices of these 60th anniversary limited edition models are not much different from ordinary Altiplano series watches.
