Nobody delivers thin-movements like Piaget. The prime Swiss haute horlogerie company, which has been designing, developing and producing its own in-house movements since 1874, has made a fascinating science out of the age-old craft of watch making. Acclaimed across the globe as the master of thin-movements, Piaget is the creator of the world’s thinnest tourbillon – and a complex flying tourbillon movement at that. Faithful to its heritage of overriding technical limits, the watch manufacturer continues to set new records that redefine luxury watches and movements. The brand’s specialist craftsmen and master watchmakers comply with the strictest specifications in producing components that are reduced to minimal dimensions, some of which are as thin as human hair. The Piaget team of experts, based in the company’s manufacture at La Côte-aux-Fées, carry out a long string of decorative and technical operations to put together impressive aesthetics and high functionality – including perpetual calendars, minute repeaters, and famous tourbillions.
Check out Piaget at authorized retailers such as Shreve & Co. at Post Street in San Francisco.
