The ultra-thin art
Extreme thinness is at the heart of Piaget’s culture and history. Since the 1950s, the legendary 9P and 12P movements have inspired a line of calibres that are as thin as they are high-performance. The Manufacture’s incredible innovative capacities and its unique creations in terms of ultra-thinness have allowed it to stand out from the crowd, assuming a position at the very summit of the art of watchmaking.
The 9P, a historic calibre
Presented in 1957, the hand-wound Calibre 9P represents a technological revolution and a turning-point in the history of Piaget.
The quest for ultra-thin
With more than 30 new movements in the space of 12 years, Piaget has become the unchallenged master of the ultra-thin movement.
Since the 1960s, Piaget has asserted itself as a specialist in jewellery watches.
An epic tale of record-breaking
Double record for Piaget in 2010: the thinnest self-winding movement and self-winding timepiece in the world!
The 12P, a revolutionary calibre
In 1960, Piaget offered its male clientele the thinnest self-winding movement in the world: the 12P.
An original concept of personalisation
Thanks to its Footprint concept, and with the participation of personalities, Piaget takes part in the charitable causes that it holds dear.
In 1998, the ultra-thin watch took the name Altiplano, a reference to the fascinating bare plateaus of Argentina.
A double record
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of this famous Calibre 12P, Piaget once again pushes the limits of miniaturisation with a double record!
