Piaget Altiplano Eccentric Small Seconds

        Born in the cradle of today’s Haute Horology, the Swiss Jura Mountains, Neuchâtel, in a small village called La Côte-aux-Fées, Piaget is a prestigious watch-making brand, launched in 1874 by George Piaget , an enthusiast watchmaker who dedicated his life to creating highly innovative timepiece of unequaled precision and timeless beauty.

        Declared the watch of the year in 2008 by the ‘Montres Passion’ magazine, Piaget Altiplano Eccentric Small Seconds won the hearts of many watches connoisseurs, through its superb design, and the unmatched refinement of its curves. But not only its ideal design but also the wonderfully crafted ultra-thin movement contributed to the recognition of the true value of this magnificent timepiece.

        The model successfully combines a clean minimalism with luxurious materials and the refinement of the finest detail touch. As for the intricate architecture of the movement we can only say that the timepiece accommodates the Caliber 838P, completely constructed in-house which although can provide only the basic functions -hours, minutes, seconds, it boasts an amazing 60-hours power reserve and it is also remarkably thin, measuring just 2.5 mm and conferring the watch a graceful delicacy.

        Piaget Altiplano Eccentric Small Seconds is a genuine classic model, defined by timeless elegance and refinement; it has a special beauty which will fascinate 100 years from now, just as it would have seduced a gentleman from the past century.

        The model features an elegant 18 karat white gold case, measuring only 40 mm in diameter, but due to having a really thin bezel, the watch appears to be bigger. The unadorned silvery dial features thin black hour hands, and as an individualizing feature, a half circle brings a special dimension to the small seconds counter, located between 9 and 10 o’clock positions and, also there is Piaget’s logo positioned at 3 o’clock.

        A clear statement of refinement and elegance, Piaget Altiplano Eccentric Small Seconds, is maybe the purest expression of watch-making mastery carried up to a genuine state of art, a marvelous timepiece worthy of Piaget’s certified prestige which can be bought for a price ranging between $10,000.00 up to $15,000.00.
