Piaget Altiplano is the worlds thinnest chronograph

Piaget’s ultra-thin Altiplano watches have been setting records for a while now. From the 2012 Altiplano Skeleton to the 2013’s Altiplano 900P, every Altiplano is more creative and more covetable than the last. Perhaps 2015 will be the landmark year for Piaget Altiplano because next fall, the watchmaker is set to release its Altiplano Chronograph which set the records for world’s thinnest chronograph movement and thinnest chronograph timepiece.

piagets-ultra-thin-altiplano-2The Altiplano Chronograph has been in the making for quite a while, Piaget admitted it took two years to develop the movement. The movement, Piaget 883P caliber measures just 4.65 mm, but Piaget has not compromised on functions or utility. The watch boasts a power reserve of 50 hours and a 3Hz beat rate. It also includes hour, minute and small seconds at 6 o’clock, while a sub-dial located 3 o’clock serves as the 30-minute counter and the 24-hour dual time sub-dial is at 9 o’clock. The chronographs can be reset to zero using flyback push buttons on either side of the crown functions; they can also be controlled by a precise vertical clutch and a column-wheel that attends to the phase coordination.
