Description

When introduced at SIHH 2013, Piaget’s Caliber 1200D was the first ever automatic gem-set skeleton movement in the history of watchmaking. The development process took two years and involved almost all of Piaget’s technical capabilities. A testament to Piaget’s expertise as a watchmaker as well as a high-end jewelry brand, the result is this gorgeous technical marvel called the Altiplano (Ref: G0A38125).

World’s thinnest in its category, the movement is carved in the 18K white gold and measures a mere 3mm – an incredible achievement, given that it is an automatic caliber with a micro rotor and a 40hr power reserve. Developed, assembled and decorated entirely by Piaget, the mainplate and bridges are adorned with 259 brilliant-cut diamonds and 11 black sapphire cabochons.

The 18K white gold case is set with 347 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 1.4 ct) laid out around the case, the crown, the lugs and the sapphire case back, while 40 baguette-cut diamonds (approx. 3.2 ct) adorn the bezel. Measuring at 40mm in diameter and just 6.1mm in thickness, this masterpiece is also the world’s thinnest gem-set skeleton watch.

To hold this jeweled art piece in place, is the hand-stitched alligator strap, with an 18K white gold deployant clasp, set with 24 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 0.06 ct), perfectly complimenting the bejeweled dial, case and the movement.

Piaget – bio

In 1874, Georges Edouard Piaget setup a small workshop on his family farm in the Jura Mountains, dedicating his life to the development and manufacturing of high-precision mechanical movements. His popularity traveled beyond the mountains and Piaget soon started supplying movements to some prestigious brands in the region.
But it was in 1943, that the manufacture launched a watch under the Piaget brand and has been making ultra-thin timepieces since 1955.
In 1957, the brand introduced the Caliber 9p, a 2mm thick hand-wound movement and in 1960, they launched the world’s thinnest self-winding movement measuring just 2.3mm.

Currently under the Richemont portfolio of brands, Piaget continues this tradition of setting new world records with over twenty in-house ultra-thin movements.
