Piaget Altiplano Chronograph

Piaget Altiplano Chronograph : double slimness record! (SIHH 2015)

by Guillaume V - 09/12/2014

Within weeks of the SIHH 2015, Piaget presented in early December an exceptional watch : a fine addition to its collection, but also an addition to the company's world records in the ultra-thin field.

The new comer, an ultra-thin hand-wound flyback chronograph movement sitting in a Altiplano collection case, completes the range of timepieces. Piaget once again demonstrates unparalleled expertise in the development of ultra-thin movements with the thinnest hand-wound flyback chronograph in the world, at just 4.65 mm for the movement, and a slender 8.24 mm for its precious case, thereby setting a new double record for slimness.

The mouvement called caliber 883P, derived from the caliber 880P, with a 50-hour power reserve, registers hours, minutes, with running seconds at 6 o'clock, a 30-minute chronograph flyback at 3 o'clock, and a second, 24 hour, timezone at 9 o'clock. Its flyback function allows to reset the chronograph hands to zero and then automatically restarting a new timing cycle, with one single push of a button.

The transparent case back of this ultra-thin case allows to see the movement and the aesthetic refinement of finishes : circular Côtes de Genève, a circular-grained mainplate, beveled bridges, sunburst wheels and blue-stained screws.

The golden satin finish dial is completed by simple and double thin markers, iconic to the Altiplano collection. The fact that the dials haven't been embossed reinforces the impression of flatness.

The Piaget Altiplano Chronograph is available in rose gold or in white gold with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 1.8 carat in total) with an ardillon buckle and a beautiful alligator strap.
