As a part of their latest exceptional pieces collection Piaget presents an exceptional jewellery version its Altiplano line. The world’s thinnest automatic watch (at 6.44 mm thick), it sets a majestic stage for the beauty of the world’s thinnest automatic movement, 2.35 mm thick Calibre 1200P. This miniature marvel and its unique gemsetting may be admired through a sapphire crystal fitted in the exhibition caseback and notably revealing the platinum oscillating weight engraved with the Piaget crest.
On a par with the technical prowess within, this creation reflecting the elegant design codes of the Altiplano collection is clothed in fiery splendour. On the dial, slim black baton-type hour-markers make a striking contrast with the hour-markers sparkling in the light of baguette-cut diamonds, while the case, lugs and even the folding clasp shine with baguette- or brilliant-cut diamonds.
In all, 260 hours of development and over 30 hours of gemsetting (totalling 9.2 carats) have been lavished on crafting this dazzling model.
