Piaget’s Altiplano: The World’s Thinnest Mechanical Watch is Now for Sale

Introduced at this year’s Watches & Wonders, the Altiplano Ultimate Concept from Piaget brings a working experiment to micro-engineered fruition. To put it another way: this is now the world’s thinnest mechanical watch. Just how thin? One might ask. Try 2mm in thickness, also known as really freaking thin (think two credit cards stacked together and you get the idea). That’s par for the course over at Piaget, a brand that continues to squeeze brilliant mechanics into preciously slim packages.

Created in a durable cobalt alloy, the Altiplano Ultimate Concept measures in at 41mm across. To achieve its painstakingly thin profile, the watch cleverly integrates manual-winding 900P-UC calibre into the signature case. Peer through open-worked dial windows to witness the movement in all its innovative glory. Meanwhile, the watch still employs traditional features such as crystal, bezel, dial, and hands. This is history in the making and it’s bound to turn heads no matter where you take it.

Piaget’s latest and greatest comes in two versions, one of which is all-black. Rounding out each model’s unique charm is a slim strap of either alligator leather or blue Polyamide. Every watch is individually produced and priced accordingly, but you knew that as soon as you saw the name Piaget. Limited in supply and literally groundbreaking, the Altiplano Ultimate Concept redefines modern elegance. Thin is in, baby.
