Limited Edition of 38 pieces, this new Piaget Altiplano Tourbillon watch features an eye-catching aventurine glass dial and a 38mm diameter white gold case with a diamond-set bezel
Aventurine glass is a magical material that mirrors the starry night sky. The Altiplano Tourbillon Aventurine dial features an ultra-thin flying tourbillon carriage in an off-centered window at 2 o’clock. The tourbillon cage forms an infinity symbol (figure of 8) along with the offset dial positioned at 8 o’clock.
In 2017, Piaget celebrated the 60th anniversary of its ultra-thin movement with the unveiling of the ultra-thin Altiplano Flying Tourbillon, putting the movement at the service of the design.
This manufacture manual-winding movement featured the time at eight o’clock and the tourbillon at two o’clock. It is comprised of 157 ultra-thin and ultra-light components, such as a carriage measuring a mere 2.88mm, and three titanium bridges weighing no more than 0.2g.
This watch comes in a 38mm white gold case with baguette-cut diamonds on the bezel, a first for an Altiplano Tourbillon of this size. The lugs and the crown are set with 13 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 0.19 ct) while the bezel is adorned with 48 baguette- cut diamonds (approx. 2.06 cts).
This Altiplano timepiece houses the Piaget Manufacture 670P Tourbillon calibre. Its sapphire case back provides a stunning view of this ultra-thin movement.
The Piaget Altiplano Tourbillon also holds a patent for its stem mechanism, featuring an intermediate wheel that looks like a staircase and enables the user to set the time of the off-centered dial — another first in the watch industry.
The watch is paired with a dark blue alligator strap with an 18K white gold clasp adorned with 24 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 0.06 ct).
