Perles Impériales Haute Joaillerie

The new Altiplano is incredibly thin – the planet’s thinnest automatic in reality. The watch itself is 5.25mm thick, while the unbelievable 1208P caliber is only 2.35mm thick. Sized at 43mm, the Altiplano is your largest ultra-thin watch on earth, and one which paves a new road. The concept of broad but thin is something we’re starting to see more of in the business and one which until recently, wasn’t something viewed as marketable. In the event the watch was to be thin, it ought to be little. If it had been to be broad in diameter, then it needs to be thick. Piaget Watches All Models Replica has ever been ultra-thin watches of a moderate size, but the 43mm Altiplano pushes things further.When I fulfilled with Audemars Piguet chief artistic officer Octavio Garcia at the Summer of 2010, six months later Piaget had declared this very watch, he mentioned this notion as something that we would be seeing a lot of in the long term from AP, and many others. While he did not mention that the Altiplano specifically, it is clear this watch caught the interest of designers the world over because by SIHH 2011, we saw could more watches in this vein, even although none implemented to the level.The concept of the contemporary ultra-thin watch is built behind the assumption that they are worn into elegant affairs, with, at minimum, a fine suit and tie, and in max, a tuxedo. The ultra-thin watch is discrete and imperial, and quite simply not suitable for everyday wear. In most cases, I’d say that statement is true. With this Piaget, however, I would argue they have assembled one of the most versatile ultra-thins ever created, and one which functions just as well with jeans and a sweater walking around NYC since it does with a suit and tie on the way into the workplace.
A tribute to Empress Josephine, this exquisite model is graced with a case embellished by brilliant-cut diamonds, diamond hourmarkers and a briolette-cut diamond on the crown (totaling approx. 6cts), as well as an Akoya pearl at 6 o’clock.
