PI­AGET rev­o­lu­tionised the watch­mak­ing world in 1957 by launch­ing the ul­tra-thin Alti­plano. To mark its 60th an­niver­sary, the brand is now re­leas­ing a lim­ited edi­tion col­lec­tion of the time­piece.

One of the de­signs in­cludes, for the very first time a tour­bil­lon – the no­blest of watch com­pli­ca­tions. Oth­ers are em­bel­lished with a range of vis­ually vi­brant and gor­geous colours.

Two new mod­els – one man­ual-wind­ing and the other self-wind­ing – are in­spired by the aes­thetic char­ac­ter­is­tics of the first Pi­aget watches: a his­tor­i­cal logo, ap­plied gold hour-mark­ers and a cen­tral cross.

There are even mod­els that come adorned with ei­ther a turquoise or opal face. Th­ese hark back to one of Pi­aget’s most-cel­e­brated style sig­na­tures: flam­boy­ant hard stone di­als.
