Piaget Altiplano watch
Timeless purity and classicism converge in this ultra-thin pink-gold timepiece, which pays homage to the elegance and refinement that is characteristic of Piaget. In a resolutely minimalistic spirit reflected by the highly contemporary dimensions of the Altiplano, Piaget continues to push back the limits of micromechanics by achieving two new records in the field of ultra-thin watches: thanks to its micro-rotor principle, that of the thinnest self-winding mechanical movement on the market measuring just 2.35 mm thick; and that of the thinnest watch in its category, with a thickness of 5.25 mm. The silver-coloured dial, arranged on three levels, is also highly refined with its small-seconds display at 4 o'clock. A truly modern classic that is both sober and elegant.

Piaget ultra-thin watch movement
Piaget was a pioneer in the history of ultra-thin movements, with its famous caliber 9P hand-wound movement and caliber 12P self-winding movement. Both pieces were ranked thinnest in their category worldwide at the time of their launches in 1957 and 1960, respectively.
