Blue is more than just a colour for Piaget, it is a symbol of calm, infinity, and dreams. It is also a reminder that “The sky is the limit” when it comes to imagining audacious creations that make dreams come true.
The colour of the Piaget Altiplano dials is the colour of the sky on a clear, cloudless night above the village of La Côte-aux-Fées, which means “Fairy Mountain”, the home of Piaget since 1874. Those timepieces emit the most intense and deep shade of blue that is paired with slender rose gold hour markers and slim baton-shaped hands, creating dials of the utmost elegance.

There are two limited editions of 300 pieces, both of which are housed in 38mm rose gold cases, which are lovingly made in-house in Piaget’s workshop. Piaget is one of the rare Maisons to make its own gold cases, combining both tradition and innovation in a pioneering way, which can be seen with these two limited editions that come in a pure rose gold version or adorned with 78 diamonds (approx. 0.71 cts.) around the bezel and feature the Piaget coat of arms delicately engraved on the caseback.

The legend of the Piaget Altiplano iconic collection started life in the 1950s with timepieces that were of unprecedented thinness and uncompromising purity. The collection has remained timeless ever since, evolving with the times, yet never losing its elegance or record-breaking slenderness.

The ultra-thinness of the Piaget Altiplano Blue limited editions is achieved thanks to the Maison’s manual-winding 430P calibre that measures a mere 2.1mm in thickness. This movement is renowned for its thinness but also its reliability and meticulous finishing. Developed, manufactured, and decorated by the Piaget Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie, it is a legitimate heir to the legendary 9P movement that allowed Piaget to chart a new course in ultra-thin watchmaking in 1957.

When it comes to the Piaget Altiplano, one rule applies: there is no room for compromise. Every single design detail and every mechanical component has its place to achieve a seamless and streamlined style that has become an enduring trademark. Like a second skin, the Piaget Altiplano is youthful yet classic, simple yet sophisticated, original yet uncomplicated, with style and versatility in its DNA. Trends may come and go, but the Piaget Altiplano defies time with its own brand of supreme elegance.
