Piaget Altiplano 60th Anniversary 43mm Limited Edition - SIHH 2017 LIVE
How would you describe a three-hands-timepiece that has withstood the ups and downs of fashion for the last sixty years? Would you call it a miracle? Probably you would, since the Piaget Altiplano didn’t change a bit during this long period of time (barred the updates and the technologies that have naturally evolved in the world of watch-making) and there are quite a few timepieces that can boast this phenomenal record. A real watch fan should know exactly when an anniversary is coming up, and, if they are not sure about the date, they should definitely do a bit of research as, on these occasions, historic manufacturers always release something special to mark the special date. When it comes to Piaget , there is one thing that you can be sure of; it is an extremely high-level manufacturing company with a communication policy that revolves around the concept of “ understatement ” that aims at giving its product its very own voice following the typical class and style of the second half of the 20 th century. To summarize; every anniversary is celebrated in style but almost under one’s breath.
