What does it mean Altiplano?
The Altiplano (Spanish for “high plain”) can be found in Bolivia, in west-central South America. Is the area where the Andes are the widest, where the mountain Collao conjures up images of the epic Andes, a towering mountain range characterized by countless snow-capped peaks.
Does the Altiplano Piaget Watch for Ladies is in honor to the Incredible Andes?
Piaget is one of those rare Maisons that specializes in watchmaking and jewelry, creating a perfect combination for women’s high jewelry watches models. Using the classical ultra-thin 36mm white gold Altiplano watch with baguette set diamonds for the first time; with the gorgeous sunray-brushed blue dial (known as Piaget Blue) that plays with the light to hypnotic effect; as hypnotic can the Quechua and Aymara Mountain can be!
The diamond baguettes serve as the hour indices at the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock quarter positions, harmonizing with a leather strap in a special shade between cobalt and midnight blue.
Inside the white-gold case, we can find Piaget’s manual-wind Caliber 430P; measuring a wafer-like 2.1 mm thick, a descendant of the company’s groundbreaking ultra-thin Caliber 9P.
Then you have other models besides the Piaget Blue, the self-winding Caliber 1203P inhabits the 40mm Altiplano in rose gold, which is distinguished by its gray meteorite dial, natural elements found in the crystallized nickel-iron hearts of meteorites; maybe imitating the Andes in the night. This watch will be limited to 300 pieces.
The Master Watchmaker and Jeweler Piaget said
“Just as diamonds are crystallized records of conditions deep within the earth, meteorites are crystallized records of the birth of galaxies.”
…and if diamonds and meteorites were crystallized together in one monumental architecture made by nature the Altiplano in Bolivia, the Andes.
