First published: 22-02-2011

Piaget has revealed a new luxury version of its Altiplano 43mm timepiece, which could interest fashion watch fans to splash the cash.

The model is highlighted by the fact that it will be finished off with a unique gem-set bezel, which successfully places 88 diamonds, of around 0.8 carats, around the border of the dial, Watch Luxus reported.

Other features of this Altiplano 43mm timepiece include an elegant 5.25mm white gold case and a multi-level dial.

Size is another eye-catching element of this fashion watch, with the news source commenting: "While the case is the thinnest in its category, the 2.35mm thick calibre it houses is currently the thinnest mechanical automatic movement on the market."

The white dial is kept simple for wearers to easily read the time, featuring only hour and minute hands, large hour markers and a small-seconds sub-dial.

Meanwhile, Piaget watches have proved to provide an appealing accessory in the celebrity world recently, after Ben Affleck was spotted wearing a Polo Forty-Five timepiece for his hit movie, The Company Men, Watch ID reported.
