SIHH 2014 Preview - Piaget Altiplano 900P

Piaget, the leader of ultra-thin wristwatches, has done it again. With the creation of the Altiplano 900P 38mm, they have broken the record for the world’s thinnest watch. Paying homage to the brand’s historic ultra-thin 9P caliber, the 900P is in many ways as important today, as the 9P was back in 1957.

New 40mm Piaget Altiplano Date Introduced At SIHH

Piaget introduced the world’s thinnest Minute Repeater at SIHH this past January. They also added to their Altiplano line with the world’s thinnest automatic watch and movement with a date. Not only did they add a date, but they also reduced the case diameter from 43 mm to 40 mm for this particular model. In comparison to the larger 43 mm Altiplanos, the 40 mm model seems just right on my wrist (see below).

In the village of La Côte-aux-Fées, which is in the Neuchâtel region of Swtizerland, Georges Piaget founded Piaget in 1874. Since the beginning, the company was dedicated to producing pocket watches and high-precision clock movements for prestigious brands. In 1911, Piaget began producing wristwatches, however, it was not until 1943 that they started selling watches under the Piaget name. Previously, all wristwatch movements were sold to other brands (a testament to the Piaget’s watch manufacturing capabilities).
