Ultra-thin is definitely something to aim for. No, not anybody’s figure. We are talking about the Altiplano, Piaget’s ultra-thin 2.5 mm thick wristwatch. This 2008 Watch of the Year model has a sleek dial and slender baton hands on its minimalist white gold case, embodying the purity and classicism that the brand stands for. The true wonder of this watch is its ultra-thin 2.3mm mechanical movement that allows the model to take on impossible flatness. Along with the calibre is a 22k gold micro rotor that takes up minimal space inside the 40mm round case. The precise motions of the watch’s movement shows through its sapphire case back, embellished with Piaget’s coat of arms, circular-grained mainplate and distinctive blued screws that make the show all the more spectacular.
