Piaget Altiplano watch
Timeless purity and classicism come together in this ultra-thin, white-gold watch, which pays homage to the elegance and refinement characteristic of Piaget. Asserting the minimalist spirit reflected in the Altiplano's extremely modern proportions, Piaget once again tests the limits of small mechanisms with two new records in the art of the ultra-thin. The first achievement is the integration of the micro-rotor principle, the thinnest self-winding mechanical movement at just 2.35 mm. The second achievement is the width, with a record for the slimmest watch of its type at 5.25 mm. The 3-level black dial also exudes purity with a sub-dial at four o'clock for the small seconds. A truly modern classic that is both sober and elegant.

The creation of a movement
Piaget is one of the few watchmakers to design, develop and produce its watch movements in-house, and has been doing so since 1874. The master of the ultra-thin movement, Piaget never ceases to establish new records thanks to the thinness of its luxury watches and movements.
