The Piaget Antiplano 43 mm Automatic, the largest ultra-thin automatic wristwatch in the world, is an incredible timepiece. And it’s not just because it is so thin - alright, primarily because it is so thin. A 43 mm dress watch that is masculine and sophisticated at just 5.25 mm thickness has got to be remarkable. Even more astounding is the 1208P automatic movement that keeps Antiplano ticking with precision and reliability. The incredible 2.35 mm movement is a descendant of Piaget’s famous Circa 1960 Caliber 12P, its hair thin components enhanced with expert care to be housed in a larger case like the Antiplano’s 43 mm. Overall, the watch is an appealing versatile watch – modern with a classic touch, and perfect for suits and tie without being too dressy for a football game afternoon.
