The Maison Piaget

Always do better than necessary

The fiftieth anniversary of the famous Calibre 12P launched in 1960 represented an opportunity for Piaget to reaffirm its unique expertise in the field of ultra-thin movements. In 2010, the company distinguished itself by setting a double record for the world’s thinnest self-winding movement and thinnest self-winding watch.

Two years later, in 2012, and building on this accomplishment, it presented the skeleton version of this same movement, brilliantly exploring the fascinating art of openworking. This technical and aesthetic masterpiece represented a new double record for the House.

The latter’s ongoing pursuit of new challenges in the demanding field of ultra-thin watchmaking stems from the premier importance it devotes to the elegance of its timepieces. This philosophy leads it to consistently push the boundaries of extreme slenderness, resulting in 2013 in an exceptional feat of fine watchmaking: the minute repeater.

This new 1290P Calibre measures a mere 4.8 mm thick, setting the record for thinness in its category, despite its 407 components. A breathtaking number of pieces, resulting in an exceptional miniaturisation without the slightest concession in sound or technical reliability. Drawing on the breadth of its fully integrated expertise, Piaget fuses technique and design now more than ever in jewellery and watchmaking.
