Piaget used parts of a meteorite that fell on earth in 1964. the year when I was born by the way... Each dial of the Piaget Altiplano watches is unique. The surface of the meteorite are known as Widmanstätten patterns, typical of the crystallized nickel-iron structures found within iron meteorites. This type of meteorite is speculated to date from the very beginnings of the cataclysmic events that result in the creation of solar systems. Just as diamonds are crystallized records of conditions deep within the earth, meteorites are crystallized records of the birth of galaxies.
