Altiplano Ultimate Automatic

Once again, Piaget has defied the laws of possibility to create the most slender self-winding ultra-thin watch in the world. An elegant and contemporary piece named Altiplano Ultimate Automatic. Quite simply, this revolutionary luxury watch marks a new step in the history of watchmaking.

Only 4.30 mm thick, the Altiplano Ultimate Automatic boasts a new world record for thinness at Piaget. A feat that the Swiss Maison’s ultra-thin self-winding watch owes above all to its unique design. Components slimmed down to the extreme, exposed mechanisms, movement and case conceived as one: this luxury gold watch represents all the expertise of the Manufacture. The crowning achievement of years of elaboration and development, it does away with the boundaries between technology and aesthetics, in the name of modern elegance. Subtly confirming the distinct identity of Swiss watches by Piaget.

Driven by its quest for thinness, the entirety of the ultra-thin movement’s mechanism and hand system are held in the height of the balance. True to the Maison’s emblematic codes, the hours and minutes are off-centred. But they are also, for the first time, contained within the height of the calibre – a major advance that has been patented. A technical achievement, as well, that frees up space between the glass and the cannon pinion to better protect the 910P movement, proving more than ever that with its self-winding Swiss watch, Piaget blends design with reliability. That is why even the rose or white gold of the Altiplano Ultimate Automatic has been chosen to lend its weight and robustness to the winding performance.

Displaying a satin-brushed and sandblasted plate, sunburst or circular wheels and hollowed bridges, the new Piaget gold watch looks for excellence in every detail. A task made even more delicate by the extraordinary thinness of the elements. Designed in the purest watchmaking tradition, its finishes also celebrate the aesthetic signatures so dear to the Maison. Present since the very first Altiplano, the words “Piaget Automatic” feature once again on this mechanical symphony, as does the “P” for Piaget stamped on the index-assembly. A masterpiece of delicacy, the Altiplano Ultimate Automatic watch is a marriage of tradition and modernity, allowing Piaget to express its boldness, technical mastery and timeless elegance all at the same time. An exceptional creation in more than one way, this self-winding Swiss watch confirms that no Altiplano has ever been so deserving of its name.
