Piaget Altiplano Tourbillon – Infinitely Personal
Whether it is a bezel adorned with the finest baguette-cut diamonds or an exquisite enamel dial, the new Piaget Altiplano Infinitely Personal concept gives clients the possibility to create a personalised Altiplano Tourbillon.
Personalisation is nothing new for Piaget. In the 1960s, the Maison’s American subsidiary designed the Piaget “Style Selector”. This useful tool was created to help better serve Piaget high-society who all wanted to get their hands on one of the brand’s ultra-thin timepieces. They could choose the components of each model, from the shape of the case, to the bezel, jewellery settings, straps, dials and more. It was such a success that it was rolled out to boutiques worldwide. The Piaget “Style Selector” now provides the inspiration for a brand-new personalisation programme: The Piaget Infinitely Personal concept.
Piaget Altiplano Tourbillon is recognized for its elegant design that includes baton hands and indexes, and beautifully-shaped lugs. Personalisation of this model allows each new owner numerous options to co-create an exceptional piece of art by choosing the case size (38mm or 41mm), type of case, dial, tourbillon ring, strap and buckle.
The 38mm model comes in a choice of a diamond set white or rose gold bezel. There is a wide selection of dials, including sunburst mother-of-pearl dials in blue, pink, red, or white, hand guilloché radiating gold dials covered with translucent blue, green, teal or red Grand Feu enamel or diamond snow-paved dial. There is also the option for a sunburst lacquer dial which can be matched to any colour. Piaget can even match the dial’s shade from a photograph of a personal memory, for a truly unique personalisation.
The 41mm model offers additional cases with options in white or rose gold that can be set with brilliant-cut or baguette-cut diamonds. Piaget is also offering the possibility to adorn the Altiplano Tourbillon with baguette-cut emeralds, sapphires or rubies for additional colour and sparkle. For the dial, the possibilities include a hand-engraved guilloché enamel grand feu decoration, a diamond snow-paved dial, or a sunburst lacquer dial that can be customized with any colour.
The tourbillon ring of the 38mm and 41mm models come in white or rose gold, set with diamonds or engraved with a personal message. The case back can also be engraved. To compliment the Piaget Altiplano Tourbillon Infinitely Personal, there is also a selection of over 25 different alligator straps.
With the Altiplano Tourbillon Infinitely Personal, Piaget continues the customisation service that has been a hallmark of the brand for more than 50 years, and allows its clients to become part of the creation of their unique watch. The only limit is their imagination.
