Why We Love it

Designing a simple watch that stands out from the pack without being outlandish is a formidable task. 

Indeed, most designs come up short. But not so this example from Piaget, makers of some of the world’s best ultra-thin watches. This piece - an Altiplano Méchanique Power Reserve dates from the 1990s and highlights the best of Piaget's prowess in watchmaking and their mastery of subtle design in a svelte package that hits far above its weight class.

It features a tidy 33mm yellow gold case, sapphire crystal, signed crown and a polished bezel. Its silver toned dial features printed ‘Roman’ indices, a power reserve indicator at 10 o’clock, a gold dauphine handset and a numbered plate at 6 o’clock denoting its position in a numbered edition of only 120 produced. Adding a bit more of a personalized touch, this Piaget also has a custom engraved caseback to a ‘Mr. Angeles Joaquin'.

Powered by the ultra-thin hand-wound Calibre 229P lever movement, and paired to a handsome signed brown alligator strap with a signed yellow gold pin buckle, this incredible timepiece is suitable for most wrists and makes for a statement dress watch for the discerning collector.

Horologically interesting and positively beautiful to behold, it checks all the boxes!

Brand Story

+
Piaget is perhaps the foremost player in ultra-thin watches and watch movements in the world. Established in 1874 in Geneva and currently under the Richemont Group umbrella, the maison began producing wristwatch movements in 1911, manufacturing the Calibre 9P, its first ultra-thin, hand-wound mechanical movement, in 1957.

In 1960, Piaget released the Calibre 12P, the thinnest automatic movement in the world at the time, at just 2.3mm. It fitted many of its miniature movements into innovative timepieces hidden in coins, brooches, and cufflinks, becoming known equally for its jewelry.

The Piaget Altiplano Ultimate, released as a concept in 2018, became a full production model in 2020. At just 2mm thick, it took the record for thinnest watch on Earth. Today, Piaget continues to innovate in the realm of ultra-thin watchmaking, creating ultra-thin tourbillons, retrograde movements, and more.
