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 20th century. To summarize; every anniversary is celebrated in style but almost under one’s breath.
