Valentin’s Day Pi­aget

DA MAN - - Watches -

The end­less love af­fair between

and slim time­pieces be­gan in 1957 when Valentin Pi­aget, grand­son of the brand’s founder, in­tro­duced the ul­tra-thin man­u­al­wind­ing move­ment cal­iber 9P at the Basel­world watch fair. What was pre­vi­ously thought im­pos­si­ble be­came re­al­ity as the Swiss lux­ury brand cre­ated a move­ment as thin as 2.3mm for their Alti­plano line. The year 2017 marks the Alti­plano line’s 60th an­niver­sary and will see the launch of two lim­ited edi­tion time­pieces. Both of them fea­ture a 18K white gold case and mid­night blue dial. While pro­duc­tion of the man­ual-wind­ing 38mm edi­tion com­prises 460 pieces, the self­wind­ing 43mm ver­sion is lim­ited to 360 units. Valentin Pi­aget would have been proud.
