Piaget’s sunburst dial

Apr 01, 2021,20:13 PM

Having ogled some Calatravas for a while, I finally pulled the trigger on an Altiplano 60th Anniversary in 38mm. The dark blue sunburst dial may be the best I have ever seen. Black in the shade, dark blue/purple in the sun. I would have loved a display back, too, but this dial is unlikely to make me want to “see more” any time soon. I think sunburst dials are a little underrated/underexplored.

Don’t look back. The Calatrava will always be there if you want to add one later..

Thank you very much. Yes, and I suppose the Calatrava is unlikely to change any time soon.

The blue dial is amazing! I love Piaget Altiplanos!

Altiplano sunburst dial is changing visually when different light bundles hit the dial. From another price range, my Longines change dial color when other light bundles hit the dial. The manual do not speak of a sunburst dial. ...  

It does indeed look variable color-wise, too!

That's a great watch. It would appear your kitten is envious of the amount of attention you're giving it, but I can see why you would. ;-)

My cat did it, but the scratches healed

I gave her much attention, it was a play or leave me alone message. She is so cute, i want to hug her. healed shot. My cat scratch my nose to bleed. But it was a little drop of blood. ...  

Thank you very much!

Elegant, sophisticated, understated - and not boring. The size suits you, too. Well done. Cheers Marc

A great looking watch.
