PIAGET – ALTIPLANO 60TH ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION

60 YEARS OF FINESSE

The brand specialised in ultra-flat watches is celebrating the 60th anniversary of its elegant Altiplano with two limited editions dressed in white gold and deep blue to enrich the collection of the same name.

Even if this watch, which is designed around the movement (and not the other way round, as is the case for most of today’s watchmakers), only acquired the name Altiplano in 1998, the legend created by Piaget first saw the light of day in 1957. Because it was in 1957 that Valentin Piaget – the grandson of the man who founded the watch-movement workshop in 1874 in Côte-aux-Fées (a town in Val-de-Travers, on the heights of the Swiss canton of Neuchâtel), and where watches were made from 1911 – introduced a legendary calibre: the 9P. With its extreme fineness – only 2mm thick – this manual-winding mechanical mechanism is no less efficient, reliable and precise. A second extra-flat calibre, an automatic one this time, was produced three years later. Today, 60 years after the birth of the 9P, the brand is celebrating this important anniversary by releasing two fine and classy pieces that are as comfortable to wear, as classical and as elegant as only Piaget watches can be.
