2011 Geneva Watch & Watch Fair New Watch Appreciation

2011 is definitely a hot year in the watch industry. The world watch tour from Geneva to Basel has made every high-end watch brand shine. Generally speaking, the value of antique watches is higher, but if they are worn daily, consumers will naturally not be satisfied with the design of old watches. So let’s take a look today. What about the new model? Piaget Slim Charm
As early as half a century ago, Piaget’s fine watchmaking factory began its journey of making ultra-thin clocks. In early 1957, Piaget developed a mechanical movement with a thickness of only 2 mm and named it 9P. In the watchmaking terminology, it represents the 9-leg sub-calibration. The watch equipped with the 9P movement and the evolved 12P automatic movement watch were launched at the Basel Watch Fair in 1960, becoming the thinnest automatic movement in the world at that time. Since then, of the 29 homemade movements developed by Piaget, 17 are ultra-thin models, giving Piaget a very solid position in the manufacture of ultra-thin movements.
新款 Piaget’s new ultra-thin watch unveiled at SIHH this year is the Altiplano series. This series was first introduced in 1998 and is characterized by clear case lines and minimal dial design. In addition to these features, this year’s new style has added Piaget’s jewellery making technology, which is even more gorgeous.
