The ultra-slender, 41-mm case of the Piaget Altiplano Chronograph — available in 18k rose gold or 18k white gold with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel — has a streamlined look, with discreet, elongated chronograph pushers that blend seamlessly with the case’s curves. It also features a see-through sapphire caseback for viewing the 883P movement and its classical decorative finishes, which include circular côtes de Genève, circular graining on the mainplate, beveling on bridges, sunbursts on wheels, and blued screws. The movement is made of 240 components, including 30 jewels, and has a frequency of 21,600 vph (3 Hz).
The white dial has a sunburst satin-brushed finish, and slender baton hands indicating the time on alternating single and double hour indices, a design hallmark of the Piaget Altiplano collection. The watch comes on an alligator strap (brown for the rose-gold version, black for the white-gold diamond version, not pictured) with a case-matching gold pin buckle. Piaget’s latest record-setting thin watch will be priced at $29,000 (for the rose-gold model). The U.S. price for the white gold-and-diamonds model has yet to be determined.
