The Piaget Altiplano Ultimate

Post by koimaster » December 27th 2020, 5:34pm

Few, if any, watches are as capable of inspiring a sudden and unexpected feeling of pure awe as the Piaget Altiplano Ultimate Concept watch. It's not very likely that you've had a chance to see one, much less strap one on – it was released as a pure concept watch only, in 2018 and was announced as a full production watch this year – but if you are one of the very few who've had an opportunity to experience it, it's not likely you'll forget the encounter any time soon.

The Piaget Altiplano Ultimate Concept watch is remarkably – and almost unbelievably – thin. Stack two credit cards together and you’ll be able to gauge the thickness of this watch. It’s just 2mm thick. It is nothing less than the thinnest mechanical watch, overall, ever made.

Few watchmakers have done as much to innovate, elevate, and advance the art of ultra-thin watchmaking as Piaget. Founded in 1874 in the small village of La Côte-aux-Fées, Piaget was born as a movement manufacturer, producing movement components for other fine watchmakers. With a family motto of “Always do better than necessary,” the Piaget family was determined from the start to make a name for their brand, and so they focused on the specific engineering and production craft of ultra-thin manufacturing.

Since the beginning, Piaget has repeatedly pushed manufacturing and design boundaries, breaking its own records time and time again while creating watches that are beautiful, wearable, and awe-inspiring. This deliberate choice to focus on ultra-thin watchmaking is just one reason it can be said that ultra-thin is the Piaget complication.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
