Direct descendant of the legendary 12P movement, the 1200P is one of the thinnest automatic mechanical movements in the world. To achieve the thinness of 2.35 mm, the watchmaker, Piaget relied on all of its ultra-thin expertise and trimmed down all of the movement's components. Some of the gears in the 1200P have been reduced to only 0.12 mm, hardly thicker than a human hair, and the space between the wheels has been reduced to a minimum of only 0.1 mm. It is also equipped with a balance stop. In order to make the best use of space, the precious micro-rotor, decorated with the Piaget coat-of-arms is off-centered and positioned at 9 o'clock on the movement. As part of Piaget’s constant effort to differentiate its models, it has decorated the wheels of the 1200P movement with a sunburst motif and its index assembly carries the stylized P of Piaget like a secret signature. The circular Côtes de Genève, the circular-grained mainplate, the beveled bridges, the oscillating weight engraved with the Piaget coat-of-arms as well as the blued screws add the finishing touches to this exceptional movement, while remaining true to the aesthetic codes cherished by the Swiss watchmaking brand.
