Watches by Piaget feature the combination of jewellery and timepieces and ultra-slim crafts. Piaget Jewellery watches gravitate towards ladies, and ultra-slim watches are more popular with those men that are interested in precise instruments. The advantage of ultra-thin watches is that they are light and easy to be hidden under the cuff. If such an ultra-thin timepiece is added into some colors, chic and elegant feel shows up. It’s Piaget Altiplano 60th Anniversary Green G0A42052 launched in 2017.
It’s in 1957 that Piaget released its first ultra-thin wristwatch causing a stir in the field. The timepiece with calibre 9P, at 2mm thick, still is praised highly by watch fans and collectors until today. The movement can apply to ladies’ watches and men’s watches. Three years later, the third generation of Piaget developed another new face of ultra-slim movements, 12P, at 2.3mm thick. The revised place is that it was fitted with an eccentrical micro automatic rotor in 24K gold. To 2017, ultra-slim precise timepieces by Piaget have went through 60-year glorious history. To celebrate the historical moment, Piaget Altiplano 60th anniversary Limited Edition collection was introduced ceremoniously. The special model is Piaget Altiplano Green G0A42052.
With yellow gold, pine green dial and tone-to-tone crocodile skin bracelet draws people’s attention to it. Slim Baton-typed hour markers and hands tell all people about elegance and uniqueness of reference G0A42052 limited to 260 pieces. 6.36mm-thick case in yellow gold is surprising. In order to show elegance further, case and lugs are polished well, like mirror effect. The fluted crown never was intended to be smaller, so it’s convenient to adjust time. Pine green crocodile skin bracelet with tone-to-tone stitches is crafted well. 18K gold pin clasp engraved with “PIAGET” echoes to case.
The design of sapphire case back makes people get a look at Cal.1203P, 3mm thick. Cal.1203P is added to the date display at 3 O’clock on basis of Cal.1205P produced in 2013. The in-house self-winding mechanical movement supplies Piaget G0A42052 with approx 44-hour power reserve, and it means it can works approx two days under full-strung condition. It seems that exposed parts tell excellence of Cal.1203P. The off-centred rotor is engraved on Piaget seal and logo. The bridges are decorated with blue-steel screws. Sun-brushed decoration adds ornamental value and practicality to gears. Circle-shaped Cotes de Geneve reminds me of Lake Geneva. The baseplate is also adorned on polished round grain. Every see it highly praises its delicacy.
Although a case is small, it holds smart inspiration and originality from clock masters. I cannot help praising such clever designs. Piaget Altiplano 60th Anniversary Green G0A42052 features ultra-slim movement and chic look. It belongs to prefect gentlemen.
