Altiplano

    The Altiplano, a signature style for Piaget, has evolved to include a sweep seconds hand at 10 o’clock and a 40mm dial. The watchmaker is also offering a limited-edition rose-gold model with a tobacco-brown dial on a brown alligator strap. Inside Information: Piaget has long been a leader in ultrathin watch movements, once the very forefront of watch technology. The men’s Altiplano contains Piaget’s 838P movement, which is perhaps its best ultrathin movement ever and a worthy engine for one of the most elegant dress watches you can buy.
