For this sixth edition of Only Watch, Piaget has interpreted its emblematic Piaget Altiplano 900P replica watch in a version that is unique as it is original, fitted for the very first time with red hands.
Since every technical choice had an aesthetic impact, and vice versa, each of the 145 parts composing the Altiplano 38 mm 900P has been trimmed to a size sometimes barely thicker than a hair’s breadth – including some wheels measuring a mere 0.12 mm thin (compared with 0.20 mm on a classic movement).
The Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Piaget is reiterating its support for research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy by taking part in Only Watch for the sixth consecutive time. Neither entirely a movement nor exactly a case – or rather both at once: the Altiplano 38 mm 900P is the world’s thinnest mechanical fake Piaget watch. Merging the hand-wound calibre with the case elements, it is designed as a single entity in order to achieve record-breaking slenderness at just 3.65 mm thin.
Places where the skills of the watchmakers, case constructors and designers converge in giving life to this masterpiece of reliability and precision.A crowning achievement in over half a century of virtuoso skills displayed in the realm of ultra-thin watchmaking where Piaget reigns supreme, it conveys the excellence of the two integrated Manufactures run by the Maison.
To underscore the distinctive nature of this creation, the rim of its case-back is engraved with the inscription “Only Piaget copy Watch 2015 – unique piece”.
