Piaget, the luxury watch-producing brand from La Côte-aux-Fées, elegantly combining the style of its ultra-thin timepieces with dials, decorated in a variety of techniques of decorative crafts, got to the material of extraterrestrial origin – meteorite, which recently gained considerable popularity among various popular watch manufacturers.
Piaget Altiplano Automatic 40mm Meteorite Dial
The Altiplano flagship collection of luxury watches of the Piaget brand, in which the company has been collecting elegant ultra-thin time devices for 60 years, has been replenished with two new fashionable models. The first one is a stylish automatic wristwatch. This astonishing model should appeal to fans of the unique design of the dial, as the dial is constructed out of the meteorite.
The case sizes are 40 x 6.5 millimeters. 18-karat rose gold was chosen as the material of the case to match the slate-gray shade of the dial. The grey leather strap is equipped with a buckle fabricated of the same metal.
Inside the case, the caliber 1203P is equipped with a micro-rotor with a balance frequency of 3 Hz and a nice 44-hour power reserve. The transparent back cover offers a view of the finish in the best traditions of high watchmaking. The series is limited to 300 copies. The cost of this luxury watch declared among the novelties of the Geneva salon SIHH 2019, will approximately be 24,300 Swiss francs.
Piaget Altiplano Tourbillon Meteorite 41mm
Among other, the novelties presented by the eminent manufacturer, at the watch salon SIHH 2019 is the model Piaget Altiplano, equipped with a soaring tourbillon and a dial constructed out of a piece of meteorite.
It is nothing new for Piaget designers to experiment with all sorts of stones. Only this year, within the framework of the same salon SIHH, the company presented two models of luxury watches with dials of lapis lazuli and malachite. In 2019, Piaget masters decided to use meteorite, for greater effect painted in sky blue color.
With a rather big diameter of the case – 41 millimeter, the thickness of this opulent time device is traditionally small for Altiplano astonishing models: 7.4 millimeters. As in the January updates, this splendid timepiece is equipped with a manual winding caliber 670p with an amazing 48-hour power reserve. The hour and minute hands are shifted to the lower left sector of the dial, and the tourbillon carriage is executed in the form of the letter “P” parallel to the hands in the upper right sector. Sparkling diamonds of the classic cut were used as a decoration on the bezel and a diamond with the “briolette” cut was set on the crown.
Altiplano Tourbillon Meteorite luxury watch series is limited to 28 copies, with the price of a single model is approximately €110,000.
