The slimmest automatic skeleton model of the world (5.34 mm) houses the thinnest automatic movement in the world (2.40 mm). It has not lasted less than half a century, could lead to Piaget’s experience withÂ The Ultra Thin Watch – Piaget Sets A New Record to this new development.
The technical direction and the visible movement of the new Piaget Altiplano of jumps as striking as its modern lines, it is the expression of all the experience gained by the Manufacture of Haute Horlogerie Piaget since 1874.
Slim And Elegant Watch Ever Designed
The engraving and hollowing out this feat without allowing loss of stiffness and therefore ensuring a trouble-free operation is a task that remains the best craftsmen in the world reserved.
For this, a broad-based development process was needed that provided the space for the conceptual and calculative updating the thinnest automatic movement and ensured that neither resistance nor reliability would be affected.
For optimum rigidity of Piaget caliber 1200S design also plays a big role, because the long-drawn arches above the board must provide the necessary bridges and the overall rigidity and durability.
The bridge of the hour wheel has further been flattened (at a minimum wall thickness of 0.11 mm) to allow the extreme flatness of this movement, which actually relates to what the proportions entering new land.
Perhaps even more remarkable is the fact that the pursuit of the infinitely small of a truly exceptional decoration work is accompanied.
The stylistic effect results from alternating matte surfaces – polished or sandblasted sunbeam – which contrasts with the polished angles and the various silver-white and black color schemes Rhodium.
The new Piaget caliber 1200S is housed in housing made of white gold with 38 mm diameter, which was developed specifically for this Clock.
The housing reflects the perfect interaction of movement and appearance, which the Manufacture of Haute Horlogerie Piaget, a master of.
Only this dual competence has Piaget put in a position parallel and interrelated in the development both of the movement as well as to work of the housing to produce the flattest skeleton automatic in the world.
Without this comprehensive mastery of the House of Piaget in all required areas, the creation of such a clock would have been impossible.
