Pursuing its quest for essentials, the Altiplano collection developed by the Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Piaget is the ultimate expression of formal purity. This reality is now taking on a new dimension with the Piaget Altiplano Skeleton Ultra-Thin model boasting a double world record: the world’s thinnest self-winding skeleton model (5.34 mm) houses the world’s thinnest self-winding skeleton movement (2.40 mm). It has taken no less than half a century of expertise in ultra-thin mechanical movements to reach these new peaks of achievement.
What if all that were left at the end of the day were the hand of the artist and the horological absolute? In this quest for essentials symbolised by the Altiplano collection, the Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Piaget takes a new leap forward by presenting the Piaget Altiplano Skeleton Ultra-Thin. This resolutely modern and truly exceptional watch not only reveals Piaget’s unique know-how in the field of ultra-thin mechanical movements, but also highlights the skills of the engraving artisans who have constantly pushed the boundaries in this art of extremes in order to make Piaget the specialist of skeleton or openworked movements in the domain of Fine Watchmaking.
Immediately revealing its technical nature and its openworked movement distinguished by its contemporary lines, the new Altiplano watch from Piaget is a concentrated blend of the expertise acquired since 1874 by the Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Piaget.
