Piaget is a luxury watch brand founded in La Côte-aux-Fées, Switzerland in 1874 by Georges Edouard Piaget.
Piaget watches are known for their beauty and fine finishing. The brand is characterized by slender cases and sophisticated designs.
In addition, it is known as a pioneer of the thin movement, In 1957 it introduced a thin hand-wound caliber and in 1960 a thin self-winding caliber.
These were astoundingly thin at the time, with a thickness of about 2mm.
Piaget is also a luxury jewelry brand, and its watches are also decorated with beautiful gemstones that make use of its technology.
This watch is a manual wind dress watch Altiplano Ref.9025 from 1980s.
Altiplano, named after the highlands of the Andes Mountains in South America, is synonymous with thin watches and is the brand's signature line.
The case is made of 18K yellow gold. The size is a rather small 30 mm.
The thickness of the case is only 5mm, making it almost impossible to feel that you are wearing it.
The case design is characterized by a rounded bezel and narrow lugs that are slightly curved when viewed from the side.
The dial is a very rare onyx dial. Unique to Piaget, which actively adopted various stones for the dial.
Furthermore, baguette-cut diamonds in four places on the top, bottom, left and right of the dial are the most distinctive feature of this watch.
You may have a opportunity to see plain onyx, but it is very rare to see it with baguette diamonds.
The diamonds are not too conspicuous, and the impression is that the design of the watch is both minimal and elegant.
The installed movement is a hand-wound Cal.9P2. It is the successor model of the ultra-thin movement Cal.9P that represents Piaget.
Introduced in 1980, the thickness is 2.15mm, which is 0.15mm thicker than the 9P. As a result, productivity and robustness are improved.
Comes with Piaget genuine leather strap and genuine YG buckle with the Piaget mark.

About Complete Service
Complete service, sometime called overhaul is the work of disassembling a mechanical product down to its individual parts, cleaning and reassembling it to bring it closer to its new state of performance.
Roughly speaking, the overhaul procedure is as follows.
1. Separate into case and movement
2. Disassemble the movement
3. Inspection and pre-cleaning of wear condition of each part
4. Wash parts with a special machine
5. Lubrication and assembly
6. Waterproof test
7. Final adjustment and running test.
Some movements are made up of hundreds of parts, but it is a very meticulous process of disassembling them one by one, inspecting them all, cleaning them, and reassembling them.
If you don't overhaul, the oil will deteriorate just like a car, and the risk of wear and damage to parts increases, causing a decrease in accuracy and, in severe cases, not working.
There is also the reason that it will be very expensive to replace parts after they are found to be damaged, so we recommend overhauling once every 2-3 years for economical and long-term use.
Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has rounded corners that were originally sharp, and has many small scratches even though the mirror finish should be beautiful. state.
At Arbitro, some watches are sold with a new finish, based on the idea that you can purchase them in beautiful condition and use them for a long time.
In particular, gold-cased dress watches are finished to bring out the best of the precious metal case.
The watches sold by us that have been given a new finish are shot in very high definition, so you can see that the edges stand out and the light is reflected by the mirror finish.
Also, depending on the case or bracelet, there are cases where multiple finishes such as mirror finish and hairline finish are mixed, but there are not many craftsmen who can distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.
In addition, the “thinness of the case” is also a part that is greatly influenced by the skill of the craftsman.
A watch that has become thinner and has thinner lugs is far from its original design, and the appearance becomes unbalanced.
It is a very precise work that brings the case closer to the original finish by eliminating scratches and dents while reducing the thickness of the case to the utmost limit.
Of course, there are cases where it is better to use the watch as it is, in order to emphasize the history of the watch and its original condition.
We look at each watch and judge whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
