WATCHMAKING EXPERTISE IS BORN FROM WITHIN
Piaget is one of the rare watch brands to design, develop and produce its own movements. Long before it created its own watches, the company founded in 1874 had already acquired a solid reputation for its calibres. The development of ultra-thin movements became its field of excellence as it pursued a vocation of constant innovation and enhancement. The Manufacture delivered its own interpretation of the most iconic horological complexity by creating its own complications. The quest for excellence and the development of new calibres illustrates the remarkable in-house capacity for innovation. Its unique ultra-thin achievements as well as its creative interpretations of the finest horological complications have established the Maison at the very peak of watch movement manufacturing traditions.
1957 saw Piaget’s impressive craftsmanship move onto an even higher plane with the release of its first ultra-thin movement, the 9P – one of the thinnest ever made. This manual winding movement quickly became legendary within Haute Horlogerie, ensuring the Manufacture was destined to be associated with ultra-thin watches from then on. Three years later the Piaget 12P was born; at just 2.1 mm, this self-winding movement broke the first in a long line of records for thinness.
Incorporating as it does all the métiers of luxury watchmaking, Piaget’s Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie encompasses the tremendous creative energy, the touch of avant-garde, and the consummate skills to design and create dozens of new movements – mostly ultra-thin, all entirely in-house. From the simplest to the most complex, manual or self-winding, round or contoured, with fine skeletons, or even gem-set, Piaget movements mark defining moments in the history of Haute Horlogerie. Its Manufacture combines record-breaking fineness with breathtaking technical achievements, such as setting baguette-cut diamonds onto the working parts of a movement.
