Piaget Altiplano Ultimate Concept: The King Of Ultra-Thin

How thin can you go? For Piaget, this has been a question that they have been answering since the late 1950s, and early 1960s when they already set records with their manual wind caliber 9P and automatic caliber 12P. At the time, the goal wasn't purely to create the thinnest watch on the market, but more to give Piaget's designers as much freedom as possible when they create their timepieces. When we fast forward to today, we see a slightly different perspective. While Piaget's ultra-slim movements still give freedom to its designers and find their way in beautiful watches, being thin has gotten an appeal of its own.
