Piaget Retains the Throne for Making Super-Thin Chronographs

LESS IS MORE. More often than not, each brand retains a particular métier that sets them apart from the rest. For slim men’s watches running on in-house movements, Piaget is the uncontested king

 

Following last year’s Altiplano Chronograph—which snagged two world records for having the thinnest mechanical chronograph movement (with a thickness of only 4.65mm) and the thinnest chronograph case (8.24mm)—is a newer interpretation in 18K white gold. The result is an understated luxe look that would captivate discerning connoisseurs. It runs on a hand-wound movement caliber Piaget 883P, featuring small seconds, a dual time zone display and a flyback chronograph. The intricate beauty of timekeeping is exposed through the sapphire case-back. From afar, this Altiplano is handsomely minimalistic and elegant, following the timeless adage of “less is more.”
