PIAGET X PHILLIPS Altiplano Origin China Special Limited Edition

Swiss Watchmaking and High Jewellery Maison PIAGET has partnered with Phillips in Association with Bacs & Russo for the first time to create the Altiplano Origin China Special Edition. Limited to 21 pieces, the PIAGET X PHILLIPS Altiplano timepiece celebrates the magnificent landscapes of the world’s highest plateau China’s Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, with a vibrant green hue.

It is the first time for PIAGET Altiplano collection to interpret the legendary Chinese plateau since its birth in 1957, making Altiplano Origin China Special Limited Edition an unprecedented classic.

Altiplano Origin China Special Limited Edition

The Altiplano Origin China Special Limited Edition watch takes inspiration from the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. It interprets the beauty of this serene location with superb watchmaking craftsmanship.

The retro green representing the verdant earth is the main hue of the watch. The dial is lacquered in three layers of green.  Every single layer has a subtle gradient green tint around the edges, which replicates the beauty of different shades of colours on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.

Pink gold hands and indexes are matched with green dial for the first time, reminding of green mountains on the ground. The colour of the alligator strap celebrates the vibrant nature.

This creative colour scheme makes the hands and indexes bold and eye-catching, the minimalist design outlines the brilliance of the earth, while the white gold case evokes the serenity of snow-covered mountain ridges. The dial also spotlights a secret Altiplano signature at 8 o’clock. An exquisite star in the second counter at 12 o’clock mirrors the brightest North Star in the starry night sky of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.

The case-back ring is engraved with “PIAGET”, “PHILLIPS IN ASSOCIATION WITH BACS & RUSSO” and a limited-edition number.

The PIAGET X PHILLIPS Altiplano Origin China watch has a 40mm diameter case. Inside beats the 1205P calibre with 44-hour power reserve. Visible through the sapphire case-back, the manual-winding mechanical movement features a pink gold off-centred oscillating weight.

The watch numbered 00 will be auctioned by Phillips in Hong Kong on November 28th. The remaining 20 pieces will only be available exclusively for mainland Chinese collectors.
