How thin can you go? The dilemma is obvious for watchmakers; but the answer isn’t unfortunately. It’s a little bit like asking a sprinter how much faster can man run the 100 meters? But there is one brand that has relentlessly sought an answer: Piaget. The expert of slim watches introduced the world’s thinnest watch at SIHH 2014, the Piaget Altiplano 900P, and this year breaks two more records with the release of the Piaget Altiplano Chronograph. So without further ado, here are the very first pictures of the Piaget Altiplano Chronograph on the wrist.
Why is this record so important? A Chronograph is a watch with stopwatch capabilities, and it is one of the most popular complications today, but it has traditionally required a lot of space to implement under the dial. Piaget is able to squeeze its – stunning – 4.65 mm movement into a 8.24 mm case, something no one else had managed to do before.
The result is the incredibly sharp, and stylish Piaget Altiplano Chronograph, which comes with an elegant (black or brown) alligator leather strap. Available in pink gold or in white gold with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds, it was well worth waiting for.
