Time For A Convertible: Watches With More Than One Face
Piaget also places the bezel diamonds under a sapphire crystal to protect them, which is represents an important focus on the longevity of the watch (an essential part of all real luxury items).Valbray V.01 Chrono Automatic WatchThe camera shutter has been re-purposed. The last few years have seen a handful of watch that execute this concept in a variety ways. Here, a totally complete watch dial with a chronograph can be covered with a closing shutter that gives you just the time (and chronograph seconds hand) to see. The shutter is operated in a very *** way by turning the bezel. Valbray helps enhance the complex shutter but giving the V.01 (and its other watches) a technical semi-futuristic look. There are a variety of models, each with dials. The dial prisms rotating in unison upon pressing the pusher in the crown. A novel idea and an interesting addition to the highest-end Santos watches.Piaget Altiplano Double Jeu 43mm WatchOnly a quasi-convertible, Piaget is in this list twice, and deserves to be here for its mostly women's watches that experiment with different convertible watches. Many are actually convertible bracelets, with a "hidden" watch face. The Piaget Altiplano Double Jeu 43mm has a hidden watch face, under a watch face. The transformation is in the watch going from single time, to double time. This is one of several such pieces from Piaget.Piaget Magic Hour Lady's WatchThere is arguably more variety in convertible women's Piaget watches as opposed to their men's models. A very clever timepiece is the Magic Hour. A *** pivoting twist of the case offers three distinct styles and dials.
