As an indispensable gene of Piaget Piaget, this outstanding design of ultra-thin also creates a creative style that the brand can control freely, becoming one of the most representative design features in the brand. At the 1957 Basel Watch Fair, the brand launched a 9P manual-winding movement with a thickness of only 2 millimeters, which surprised four people and became a milestone in the history of ultra-thin watchmaking. In 2018, the brand once again focused on the theme of ultra-thin. At the highly anticipated Geneva Fine Jewellery & Watch Salon, the 4.3-mm-thick Altiplano Ultimate 910P automatic watch was launched. Combined to reproduce the brand’s extraordinary and unique aesthetic design. This watch is available in white and rose gold. Here we take a look at the low-key luxury rose gold model as an example: (watch model: G0A43120)
Dial movement in one
The new watch continues the classic design of the series, perfectly integrating the dial, movement and case, which not only exceeds the limit thickness of the watch, but also presents the ultimate and unique design aesthetics through the clever dial layout. The eccentric hour, minute and small seconds dial is located at 10 o’clock on the watch, showing the basic function of time indication. At 7 o’clock, a moving display window is added to add practical functions to the watch. It is sighing that it is extremely thin, and you can also appreciate the look of the movement through the dial, making this new model more exquisite and mechanical precision.
The diameter of this watch is 41 mm. Due to the fusion of the movement and the case, the thickness of the watch is only 4.3 mm, which is extremely thin. The case is polished and polished, showing smooth lines and full arcs, which is very beautiful. Compared with platinum, rose gold is more gentle and luxurious. Incorporating an elegant, subtle men’s charm into it, echoing the slim and light shape and the simple disk design, highlighting the gentle and elegant style of men’s wearers.
22K Gold Peripheral Rotor with Black PVD Coating
At this point, you may ask, isn’t it an automatic watch? Where is its pendulum? On the outer edge of the disk, there is a black PVD-coated 22K gold oscillating weight specially created by the brand. Because it is set on the periphery, it does not increase the thickness of the movement, achieving the overall slim effect. The oscillating weight is cast in gold, which brings perfect mechanical properties. At the same time, it also adds weight to the movement’s oscillating weight, ensuring its stability and solidity, and showing excellent winding performance. Through the movement of the 910P pattern, you can feel that the oscillating weight rotates with gravity. Don’t have any fun.
Real time display of the rest of the watch
The 18K rose gold crown is located on one side of the watch. The Piaget logo ‘P’ is engraved on it, and the crown is decorated with a non-slip texture.
It is equipped with a 910P self-winding mechanical movement, and parts such as the main splint embedded in the case are polished and sandblasted; the balance wheel is alternately retouched with solar radiation or ring-shaped corrugated matte polishing. The bridge is chamfered and polished with a sun-radiated matte finish, and the hollow beauty perfectly showcases the dynamic beauty of the movement. The movement is assembled from 238 parts (case and movement), with a vibration frequency of 21,600 times / hour (3 Hz), and can provide a power reserve of about 50 hours.
The black alligator leather strap is decorated with bamboo patterns and grey stitching, which is more elegant. With pin buckle, wearing is more convenient.
