Cheap Replica Watches — In 2016, the Altiplano, Piaget’s icon of slenderness, is presented in a High Jewellery version.
In 2014, the 140th anniversary of the Maison witnessed the launch of a revolutionary Swiss replica watches UK: the Altiplano 38 mm 900P, which set a new ultra-thin record. But above and beyond its slender 3.65 mm thickness, the most striking aspect of this model lies in the boldness of its design. The case and movement are as one, with the latter serving as a mainplate to which the 145 components of the calibre are fixed. Designed as an inseparable whole to achieve record-breaking slimness, this timepiece quite literally embodies the merging of the Maison Piaget’s two integrated manufactures: one in La Côte-aux- Fées where the movements are developed; and the other in Plan-les-Ouates where the watch exteriors are designed and crafted in synergy with the watchmakers. The cases, dials and sapphire crystals must be closely fitted to the precious mechanisms they protect. No less than three years were required to take up such a challenge.
At Piaget, the movement is always an integral part of the watch design and with more than 40 different professions exercised in its workshops at La Côte-aux-Fées and Plan-les-Ouates, nothing could be more natural than for the Maison to express its watchmaking art by associating it with the jewellery art.
While ultra-thin horology is embedded in the very genes of the Piaget, the equally demanding art of gemsetting is also an integral part of its DNA. In the realm of ultra-thin watchmaking, the thinness of the material leaves little room for setting the stones and allows only infinitely small tolerances in order to preserve the pure curving lines and the volume of the case. Adorned with 5.77 carats of diamonds, the Altiplano 38 mm 900D sets a new record as the world’s slimmest Haute Joaillerie watch, at a mere 5.60 mm thick. Moreover, the movement, incorporated into the mainplate, is snow-set. A technique involving random setting with diamonds of varying diameters, concealing the underlying precious metal.
The Altiplano 38mm 900D possess’ a hand-wound mouvement beating at a frequency of 21,600 while enjoying a power reserve of 48 hours. The timepiece is completed with a black alligator strap equipped with a folding buckle.
