Huge diver’s watches the size of a Fiat 500 embody the yachtsman lifestyle, but they don’t go well with French cuffs. Alternatively, Piaget’s timepieces are the anorexic Euro Models of the timepiece world: Small enough to disappear when viewed sideways, positively reeking with style while celebrated for their superb movements. The result is a wristwatch that can mesmerize all who gaze upon it while making sure they don’t miss the opening act of Les Miserables. The Piaget Altiplano Ultimate Automatic 590 is a fine example of the watchmaker’s skills. The unique off-center dial (your choice of rose or white gold) is skeletonized to allow a view of the inner workings, while the incredibly thin casing becomes part of the wearer’s wrist, the solid gold housing so light it’s scarcely noticed…and so sleek that shirt cuffs are oblivious to its presence. In addition to stunning looks, the Altiplano is actually quite practical, as the movement is powered by the wearer’s every move; Piaget.com.
