5.5 mm ultra-thin self-winding mechanical tourbillon and power reserve indicator
1270P Pink movement
Manufacture Piaget 1270P ultra-thin self-winding mechanical tourbillon movement with power-reserve indicator.
The 1270P movement is derived from two ultra-thin Piaget movements: the 600P movement, one of the world's thinnest hand-wound tourbillon movements, and the 1208P ultra-thin self-winding movement, fitted with a micro-rotor. The 1270P movement is Piaget's first self-winding, ultra-thin movement. It measures 5.55 mm in thickness and incorporates several technical and design innovations.
It is a genuine Fine Watchmaking signature, one of the most symbolic complications in existence. Apart from the technical achievement of producing a highly complex mechanical movement of 269 components in an extremely small space – some wheels are barely more than 0.12 mm thick – the 1270P movement is also distinguished by its exceptional design.
It confidently ignores the established codes of Fine Watchmaking by inversing its key elements. On the dial side, the off-centre micro-rotor made in rose gold coloured platinum is open to full view and intertwines with the impressive off-centre tourbillon carriage, creating the figure 8, the definitive lucky number.
Also off-centred are the hour and minute hands, positioned at 5 o'clock and decorated with a sunburst guilloché motif. The delicate finishing of the movement is clearly visible: guilloché sunburst motif produced by laser, slender hour markers pointing to the off-centred hands, rose gold coloured platinum oscillating weight, and underlined counters and tourbillon in gold. The contemporary feel of the whole movement is counterbalanced by the traditional Fine Watchmaking decoration of the micro-rotor: a guilloché motif and Piaget coat-of-arms.
The solid case-back is engraved with the Piaget coat-of-arms and the name of the 1270P movement. It includes two apertures: one for the power-reserve indicator, the other revealing the bottom of the tourbillon carriage.
