Piaget Altiplano watch
The first model in this emblematic Piaget collection equipped with a major complication, the Altiplano Chronograph watch has established a new double record in the field of ultra-thin watchmaking, with its 4.65 mm movement and its case with a thickness of 8.24 mm. Housed in an ultra-thin white gold gem-set case with a 41 mm diameter, this is the thinnest hand-wound chronograph flyback watch in the world and the embodiment of contemporary elegance and simplicity. Its 883P movement offers hours, minutes and small seconds displays, a chronograph function with a 30-minute counter and a 24-hour dual time zone display. Its satin-brushed "sunburst"-motif dial, marked out by baton-shaped hands and slender hour markers, displays an uncluttered surface for maximum legibility. Ensuring perfect comfort for its wearer, the taut lines of this luxury Piaget Altiplano Chronograph watch continue into its alligator strap fitted with a pin buckle.

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.
