Piaget is well known for its unbelievably thin watches that have been working since its inception in 1874. It’s not just about their capability as a watchmaker but also a style in its own right. Precious stones, splashes of gold, and colours are hallmarks of Piaget on their dress watches.
In 2017, Piaget unveiled several new models of the ultra-thin concept: the best-selling icon, the Piaget Altiplano 60th anniversary editions, and a series of variations with colourful dials. As part of the pre-SIHH 2019, Piaget presents a new version of the Altiplano Automatic 40mm based on the same concept of an ultra-thin piece with great attention to the dial, this time with a meteorite dial.
This watch shared the same base case and movement as the colourful 40mm Altiplano Automatic back in 2017 but came with a new creative approach on the dial. This new meteorite edition is pleasant.

The case of the new Piaget Altiplano with a meteorite dial is made of 18k pink gold, and this is a perfect match for anthracite dials. The 40mm diameter case coming with Piaget’s tradition for sure, is thin and measures only 6.6mm in height. The pink gold case is entirely polished for a formal look, with the case back doubling up as the mainplate and peripheral rotor.

An elegant and well-proportioned dress watch, with automatic movement, minimalist crown, grey alligator strap, with an 18k pink gold pin buckle complementing the meteorite dial.
The main feature of this new Piaget Altiplano lies in its dial that is made of thin slices of meteorite. Adorned with pink gold applied indexes and hands, the metallic grey colour meteorite dial looks so classy. No two watches will have a similar dial because the meteorite pattern is the result of the crystallization of the stone.

This movement coming with a 44h power reserve and is wound by a thin rotor that measures just 3mm in height.
