Meet the new fake Piaget Altiplano 38 mm & 34 mm hand-wound watches with pavé dials. Fighting for the market share, the Swiss watch maker and jeweler Piaget has employed a new tactics.As you can see on the pictures, the watches are literally overwhelmed with diamonds. The brand has introduced a watch which is going to be offered in pairs: for Him and for Her.
The greatest bulk of the diamonds went to the dial. Set in a circular motif, they count 735 and 574 stones respectively.
According to the company, the 38 mm version model, which is supposed to be worn by gentlemen, is adorned with 836 diamonds. The 34 mm ladies Piaget Altiplano copy watch comes set with 669 precious stones.
The density of diamond-setting was so high that Piaget was even forced to print its corporate logo not on the dial itself, but on the sapphire crystal that protects the dauphine-shaped white gold hour and minute hands from abuse.
Their thin bezels are also decorated with 78 and 72 diamonds. The rest of the stones went to cover the new pin buckle that, as Piaget puts it in its press release, “picks up the bezel design.”
