Its plain, straight sides, and angular bezel give the whole watch the appearance of size, despite remaining comfortable to wear – the case comes in at a remarkable 8.24mm tall.

The Piaget Altiplano Chronograph retains a consistent identity through the use of stout, polished pushers that blend in with the otherwise uncluttered silhouette. The pushers need to be there because it's a chronograph, but their presence is muted and all the better for it.

The aBlogtoWatch team had a difficult time (as always) selecting our list of the top 10 watches of Baselworld 2015.

So without further ado, and in no particular order, here is aBlogtoWatch’s list of the top 10 watches for Baselworld 2015.

Moving down to the MB&F Melchior's torso, you see discs used to indicate the minutes and hours. This is where you'll be primarily looking if you are interesting in using the MB&F Melchior to read the time. Look further down to the robot's pelvic region, and you'll see a power reserve indicator. The L’Epée-produced mechanical movement has a total power reserve of 40 days - which is a nice long time, so it is good that the clock comes with an attached winding key.
