Piaget (PIAGET) Altiplano ultra-thin series watches, together with the brand ambassador Hu Ge shot brand blockbusters
Hu Ge wears Altiplano Ultra-Thin Series Watch (Model: G0A38131)
Hu Ge wore a total of four different Altiplano ultra-thin watches in the advertising blockbuster. Although the four watches belong to the same series, they show different styles. Let’s talk about them one by one, this simple three-handed Altiplano watch. The model uses rose gold as the case material and a silver-white dial. The eccentric small seconds dial makes this watch more interesting. In addition, in order to make the dial look more reasonable and harmonious, the date display window is set at 9 o’clock, which is also distinguished from other models.

This 38mm diameter Altiplano900P watch combines the movement and the case into one, with a thickness of only 3.65mm, which once again set a slim record set by the brand before. The mystery of this slim watch is buried in a rose gold case with 78 diamonds: the case is also the main plate of the movement, and the mechanical parts are directly mounted on the case. In order to show the slimness, all the mechanisms and hands are cleverly installed in the slim balance wheel, and the hours and minutes are displayed eccentrically on the dial. Piaget specially designed a suspended spring barrel for this square inch space, which is only fixed by a splint near the dial side. Diamonds add a more sparkling side to the watch, whether it is in formal occasions or in daily life, it can bring you the ultimate charm.

When attending banquets or more formal occasions, as one of the few men’s accessories that can be worn as ‘jewelry’, the glittering diamonds with elegant design will bring a more elegant side to the wearer. This is the case with the Altiplano Ultra-Slim collection with diamond-set dials.
Since the birth of the earl, Piaget has constantly broken through itself and the proud achievements set by its predecessors. In the 1920s, under the leadership of Georges-Édouard’s son Timothée Piaget, the family business transformed from a movement maker to a premium pocket watch and watch manufacturer. The brand has continued to grow since then, and has grown faster under the leadership of the third-generation heirs Gérald and Valentin. In 1943, Earl was officially registered as a trademark. Two years later, a new large-scale workshop was completed in Xianzipo to deal with the brand’s growing business.
In 1957, Piaget launched the Altiplano ultra-thin watch
From the first appearance of the Altiplano series in 1957, its useless creativity and watchmaking skills made him a model in the watch industry. Breaking through the shackles of thickness, the highly pioneering Valentin Piaget, on the basis of its predecessors, pushed the ultra-thin technology to a new height, and has since become the brand’s logo. In 1957, the 9P manual winding mechanical movement caused a sensation at the Basel Expo. Three years later, the count broke the limit again. In 1960, the concept of a miniature rotor allowed Piaget to launch the world’s thinnest automatic movement at the time, the 12P movement. These masterpieces of movement make Piaget a master brand of elegant men’s watches.

In 2018, Piaget launched a PiagetAltiplano UltimateConcept watch, which is only 2mm thick. If everyone has no concept of 2mm, let me give you an example. The thickness of a RMB 1 yuan coin is about 1.85mm. It can be seen how high barriers the Altiplano series has to break through in terms of technology and craftsmanship.
Piaget launches new Altiplano watch in 2019
Why is the Altiplano series a product of a pioneering spirit and a challenging spirit? Today, there are not a few brands launching ultra-thin watches, but in the 1950s, due to the limitations of watchmaking technology and craftsmanship, it was not easy to achieve the goal of ‘thin’.
Piaget Altiplano watch details
Thinner means that, while ensuring that the watch can move accurately, all watch parts are smaller and thinner than the original, which requires more demanding parts and assembly. Even if you don’t see the real thing, you can see the fineness of each part of the watch model from the picture alone.
Today, Piaget has broken through his achievements in this area, and on the thin basis, he tries to bring users more new ideas about beauty and machinery.
Why Hu Ge and Earl can achieve such a long-term cooperation, I think it is because they have the same goal-to break through themselves bravely. The results that have been won let it stay yesterday. What we are going to chase today is a wider future. I hope that both Earl and Hu Ge will bring us more surprises in the future. After all, the factions of strength are all talking about works.
