Ever since it was founded in 1874 by Georges Piaget himself, the Swiss watchmaker Piaget has been striving to create unparalleled timepieces of unique design and fantastic performance. The Altiplano 900P watch stays true to those same principles, but since it was created honoring the brand’s 140th anniversary, it is definitely one of the most amazing Piaget pieces to date.
As a matter of fact, the Altiplano 38 mm 900P is currently the thinnest mechanical watch in the world, since it flaunts a thickness of no less than 3.65mm. It is quite obvious that this watch is not an ordinary one, nor was it created using ordinary techniques. One of the most unusual and appealing characteristics of the 900P is that its movement and the case are part of the same design, but since the movement itself comprises no less than 145 parts, some of the calibre wheels are just 0.12 mm thin.
The dial was placed off-center right alongside the movement, into the bridge, while the back of the case acts as a mainplate for the various movement components. All in all, the Piaget Altiplano 900P boasts a thickness of 3.65mm, and it comes with a black alligator strap featuring a white gold buckle and pin. Finally, the thinnest mechanical watch in the world costs $20,000, but that’s a fair price to pay considering its exclusivity and elegance.
