Altiplano pocket watch
When the Altiplano was first released in 1957, this record-breaking feat of slenderness revolutionised the world of watchmaking and defined a new set of aesthetic rules and a brand of elegant classicism that endures 60 years later. As part of the yearlong celebrations dedicated to this watchmaking icon, Piaget puts an unexpected twist on a timeless classic: the ultra-thin timepiece takes leave from its owner’s wrist to become an original pocket watch. Set on a blue calfskin string to match its Piaget blue dial, this limited edition of 26 pieces in white gold makes an original companion for the watch collector, the style maven or the classic dandy. When displayed on a specially designed marquetry stand, the legendary Altiplano is more than a watch; it becomes a piece of art, a timeless expression of elegance.

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.
