One of the many things I admire about Piaget, is their willingness and ability to create bespoke or unique creations for their often very elite client base. One Piaget story I’ve never forgotten involved a sheik who wanted not a single custom watch, but 32 of them – one for each for the same number of ladies in his harem! Each lady had a different (custom, of course) wallpaper pattern in her room at the palace, and this is what the Piaget designers ended up using as the basis of this amazing order! If you, too, desire a unique Piaget watch, consider the gorgeous “Fingerprint Motif” Altiplano watch.
As its name implies, the swirling diamond dial of this Piaget timepiece is created by using the whorls of a fingerprint as a model. Supply Piaget with your own, and they will create for you a ravishing pave diamond dial that truly lives up to the oft-misused word “unique”. Once it’s completed, you will possess a classically elegant diamond dress watch that stands out from any other on the planet – and be sure here, even in so-called “standard” guise, the Piaget Altiplano is an exclusive timepiece that you need not worry about finding multiple copies of in the crowd. Celebrities and world figures have taken note of the Piaget Altiplano Fingerprint watch, too: Hip-hop star Ludacris had one made up for a charity event related to helping runaway kids, and Prince Albert II of Monaco’s print went to made up another example that sold at the 2007 Only Watch Auction to raise funds for Muscular Dystrophy research. It goes without saying that ladies can obtain their own version, and for them, a charming matching pendant can be created as well.
If you’re curious as to what kind of a movement runs the elegant time-only display of the Piaget Altiplano Fingerprint Motif watch, I want to reassure you that it’s not a nameless battery-powered quartz trifle. This one, designated the Piaget 430P, has serious horological substance, being beautifully refined and just 2.1mm in height, making it one of the world’s slimmest mechanical calibers. As with all Piaget movements, this hand-wound supermodel is produced and assembled in the brand’s own manufacture.
