Flatland: Piaget Altiplano 38mm 900P

 

If there is one watch manufacture that consistently makes a virtue of being lean it must be Piaget. The brand has many records in this area, including for thinnest automatic minute repeater and overall thinnest automatic wristwatch, with thinnest movements in both instances. Earlier in the year, we chose this watch as one of the most significant of 2014, even though it was shown before the SIHH. What you are looking at is the thinnest wristwatch of all time, so to speak, at an unbelievable 3.65mm thick.

This particular Altiplano uses a different approach than anything Piaget has ever made because the manual-winding calibre and the case are one and the same. Basically, the base plate is the caseback, thus removing another level of thickness and adding exponentially to the complexity of making the watch. To our knowledge, the Altiplano 38mm 900P is unlike any other mechanical watch currently in production. The 38mm watch is currently offered in 18k white gold and 18k pink gold ; there are also two gem-set versions, both in 18k white gold, with one version featuring a fully-set case and dial.
