It’s been three weeks now with the Piaget Black Tie Replica and I have to say I am quite happy. I never thought a watch of this quality could come at such a low cost. Its presentation packaging blew me away at first sight but I had to give it a try before finally coming to conclusion that this indeed a great watch.
The knockoff watch as whole is very comfortable. It does have a hefty weight at 140 grams, but it is balanced with the strong construction of the case, band and deployment clasp. Viewing of the time and date is very quick and easy due to the size and color choices. At night the luminescence is a nice blue color on the hands and hour markers. The large pilot style “onion” crown is not usually my favorite style, but the design of this piece is shorter so it doesn’t dig when bending your wrist. Also with the detail of the Piaget Altiplano Replica logo on the end made me appreciate the classic design of this crown to this watch.
The ETA 2824 has plenty of reserve power (38 hours to be exact) in case you may not wear this replica watch everyday. On the weekends or day-to-day you may switch pieces, so the additional way to keep it charged is by giving the crown a few turns at night and in the morning. There is a lot to be said about these Piaget Replica Watches so I am going to keep the features to the best two.
The no-tool strap replacement is definitely a stand-out. Because it is so easy you can quickly change the strap in the morning before you head to work to match your leathers. Check out the video for a demo. The small movement exhibition window on the back is a innovative change to the normal full view about Fake Piaget Black Tie. Utilizing a smaller window allows for the serial number and wing design to be on the case back as well as keep the solid overall fell to the 1:1 piaget replica watch.
The only areas that I was concerned about wear were the strap and the deployment clasp. The two pieces actually work together with the deployment clasp putting less stress on the brand than a traditional buckle. Usual crease marks and stretched holes are no longer a problem. Also the strap is made of a very high quality leather that did not show any wear at all during the three weeks of use. Even the white colored interior of the strap still looks brand new.
I mentioned in my initial review about Piaget Polo S Replica Watch that I was concerned that the polished deployment clasp would start to scratch. I was very surprised to see that the clasp is extremely resilient as no imperfections have showed at all. Personally I tend to go through watches rather quickly. I like to have lots of styles colors and options available at any given time. The nice part about the Polo is that it is has a simple designed case and dial that can be coupled with different colored watch straps. If you prefer a more detailed face you still do have the option of the Black Tie which has additional colors on the dial and 24 hour markings.
The movement is top notch for the long haul, and if that isn’t enough assurance Piaget has a five year warranty on the movement. There really isn’t anything at all to complain about on this piaget altiplano watch. I will be happily keeping this piece for many years to come.
