Piaget shows off yet another world’s thinnest timepiece for SIHH

Piaget has continued its reputation of creating ultra-thin timepieces with the Altiplano Ultimate Concept, a 2mm mechanical watch.

This thin watch, which is only at a concept stage at this time, utilises 5 patents made by Piaget to use techniques previously unexplored in watchmaking.

Just before SIHH, Piaget also showcased its thinnest ever mechanical watch, clocking in at 4.30mm.

Piaget’s thinnest mechanical watch: the Altiplano Ultimate 910P

Unlike conventional watches, the cobalt alloy based 41mm case does not house a movement, instead, much like other Altiplanos, the movement is integrated as part of the case, reducing its thickness even more. The crown is merged in the caseband as a rectangular-shaped crown that is within the case edge. The sapphire crystal is just 0.2 mm thick.

The movement drives the minutes and hours is an oscillation system running at a modern rate of 4Hz (28,800 vph). There are 13 jewels and the power reserve is 44-hours.
