SIHH: The 2014 vintage

  • 140 years and a new record!

140 years and a new record! Not content with reaching the grand old age of 140, Piaget has pulverised a record with this 38mm Altiplano 900 P, the world's thinnest mechanical watch. Its hand-wound calibre and case are virtually one as the caseback serves as the baseplate, making it part of the movement and achieving a depth of just 3.65mm.
