Piaget China πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³ LE vs Patek China πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³ LE !

 By: GLau : November 24th, 2022-17:58
Hi All,

I attended a Piaget/Phillips event for the Piaget China πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³ LE of which  20 pieces were made and already sold in China.  This remaining piece with number 00/20 will be auctioned off by Phillips in Hong Kong during the auction on November 28 to 29th.

Naturally the watch to wear for this fun event was my 6000R for the 10th year anniversary which happened in 2015.

The green dial of this Piaget Altipano is very lovely and the β€œhidden” word Altipano as the hour marker is quite neat.

What do you think of both ?

Very classy LE from Piaget. Well done. I’m sure you had a great time with that unique Patek on your wrist.

Not sound like a broken record... But in this case the date really wasn't a good addition.

like about this Piaget ?

I Have one from each brand (love 'em both). You know what they say about the artistic quotient of anything... "dey ain't no tellin' for taste"...but for me the Piaget wins the style contest. The

Patek might win on absolute attention to detail and some aspects of quality, but how good is your loop?

green color of this dial πŸ‘

I like and respect Piaget so it's an interesting watch to me.

I like the dial color, and the attempt at simplicity is nice.  However, IMO the date and the star in the sub seconds seems to take
away from the attempt at keeping it simple. I like the "Altiplano" as an hour marker. I would like to see this watch in person
to make a better judgment. 

Warning to Piaget enthusiasts! Prepare yourself for disappointment if you take a look at this same post on the PP forum.
There, the cat claws came out and tore this Piaget to pieces.  
The contrast in opinions between those here on the Piaget forum and those on the PP forum is interesting to say the least.

No kidding! That was savage

I have a soft spot for Piaget, they treated me to a tour of their factory - well, I won a contest through this forum. Gained a lot of respect for the brand from that experience.
I do have to agree the date should be deleted on this one though. I give the star a pass given the theme of the watch, perhaps red would have been a better choice for colour to keep with the theme.

Yes, red star is a naturally thought. The Chinese flag actually

has a yellow star just like this watch.

Oops, I should have clarified I meant a red dial

But the green is quite nice and very trendy now.
Green dial and red star would be too much like Christmas even though it is approaching quickly!

Good to hear that you like this Piaget !

Since this is a China LE, the yellow star ⭐️ was used because it represents the one on the Chinese flag.
