I want to an cheaper alternative to a Piaget Altiplano, has to be mechanical and Swiss or German. I'm not going to wear the watch a lot, so I dont think spending $35,000 for the platinum model is justified yet (I have a long list of watches I want before that Altiplano)... assistance please.

have a look at JLC Master Grande Ultra Thin. you should be able to find one for about $7000 (non gold) and around $14000 with gold

If your wrist can accommodate 40 mm plus shouldn't you be drifting towards the VC patrimonie ultra-thin, truly ultra at 2.7 mm or so? JLC is over 5 mm though the profile design is clever making it seem much thinner. I tried on the Altiplano a few weeks ago and found the Piaget name at 3 o'clock too dominant.

but being a VC means that it's going to cost $$$$$... the JLC costs $$$$... and I want to spend $$$$ not $$$$$ and it has to be new at that price not used. links to a website that has some for sale would be good, because I cant find it on chrono24 nor ebay.

I picked up my jlc master grand ultra thin "used "

its wears thin looks and functions great and is extremly comfortable with the deployant clasp
I love it
