Piaget, who has always been at the forefront of the ultra-thin field, has always regarded the creation of ultra-thin watches with a more breakthrough and innovative spirit as the focus of watch development. The ultra-thin watch born in the hands of Piaget in recent years, in addition to the slimness of ordinary models, is also gradually combined with complex processes such as tourbillon, gem setting and hollowing out, There is something to watch ‘, I believe that is the goal that Earl wants to achieve in the next step.
From the brand’s new work released in 2012, we can clearly see the efforts of Earl. As another member of the ultra-thin family, the new Altiplano skeleton ultra-thin watch shows the charm of skeleton craftsmanship based on ultra-thin foundation. It is not easy to make the movement both ‘thin’ and ’empty’. If the thickness is not enough, the risk must be increased when the plywood is hollowed out. If it is too strong, the plywood may not be kept flat; , But will undoubtedly sacrifice thin characteristics. But Piaget solved this problem with the world’s thinnest self-winding skeleton movement, 1200S, which took 3 years to develop. The thickness of the 1200S is only 2.40mm. Each plywood above is hollowed out in a large area. Before doing this work, Piaget needs to make precise calculations and considerations: the size of the hollowed out area, the shape of the hollow plywood and the bridge, and the method to be used to modify these parts, etc. Then the movement is carefully adjusted and designed to ensure that the movement has beautiful appearance and durability.
