|Name:||Altiplano Ultra Thin Automatic White Gold Diamond|
Piaget Altiplano watch, 40 mm. Case in 18K white gold set with 72 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 1.0 ct). Sapphire case back. Manufacture Piaget 1205P ultra-thin self-winding mechanical movement with small seconds and date, the thinnest in the world (3 mm). Oscillating weight in 22K pink gold.
New double world record for thinness. The Altiplano watch integrates a calendar and holds pride of place as the thinnest watch in the world in its category, for both its movement and its case. Embracing the back-to-the-basics philosophy to perfection, its 3.00 mm movement, the thinnest in the world, and its 6.36 mm thick case illustrate that technique and sophistication, however great they may be, can be comfortably housed in a small space. The 40 mm white gold-fashioned case, specifically designed to host the 1205P movement, also houses the date and small seconds. The dial arranged on three levels and the subtle interplay between single and double hour-markers reiterate the codes cherished by Piaget’s ultra-thin, automatic watches. A luxury watch of timeless purity, destined to become a genuine classic that will stand the test of time. The 1205P movement is the worthy heir to the 1208P introduced by Piaget in 2010. It ventures even further beyond the boundaries of excellence with its record-breaking 3.00 mm thinness. No fewer than 221 meticulously-designed and hand-assembled components compete against each other in an incredibly delicate mechanical composition. In keeping with the tradition of off-centred indicators, the date aperture at 9 o’clock merges perfectly with the small seconds set at 5 o’clock. As part of Piaget’s constant effort to stand out from the crowd, the 1205P movement is equipped with a special index assembly, which bears the “P” of Piaget like a secret signature. The circular Côtes de Genève, circular-grained bottom plate, bevelled bridges, sunburst wheels and blued screws round off this exceptional movement, evoking the aesthetic codes cherished by the Swiss watchmaking brand.
