2010 - Always do better than necessary
The fiftieth anniversary of the famous Caliber 12P launched in 1960 represented an opportunity for Piaget to reaffirm its unique expertise in the field of ultra-thin movements. In 2010, the company distinguished itself by setting a double record for the world’s thinnest automatic movement and thinnest automatic watch. Two years later, in 2012, and building on this accomplishment, it presents the skeleton version of this same movement, brilliantly exploring the fascinating art of openworking. This technical and esthetic masterpiece represents a new double record for the House. The latter’s ongoing pursuit of new challenges in the demanding field of ultra-thin watchmaking stems from the premier importance it devotes to the elegance of its timepieces. This philosophy leads it to consistently push the boundaries of extreme slenderness, as well as to overturn existing fine watchmaking conventions, as in the latest complicated caliber to emerge from the Manufacture: an automatic tourbillon movement that reveals its bridges and oscillating weight through the dial side. Relying firmly on its broad range of fully integrated skills, Piaget more than ever places technical competency at the service of creative design.
