Piaget set a record when it introduced the world’s thinnest hand-wound watch in 2011. Measuring in at 5.25mm, the Altiplano held the record until Baselworld 2017, when Bulgari introduced the Octo Finissimo Automatic, measuring 5.15mm in thickness and claiming the crown of world’s thinnest. It seems that Piaget spent the remainder of 2017 slimming down for the new year, and the result is a world-beater once again.
In a race to be the slimmest of them all, Piaget may have just introduced the end-all and be-all of ultra-thin watches. The Piaget Altiplano Ultimate Automatic 910P restores the crown to Piaget and is set to officially debut at Salon International De La Haute Horlogerie Geneva (SIHH) in 2018 this week.
