Piaget Altiplano 38mm 900P is the world’s thinnest mechanical replica watch


Between 20 to 24 January 2014 will be held International Exhibition of Watchmaking (SIHH), during which people from Piaget replica will present the slimmest mechanical watch in the world. The record was held until now by Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra-Thin Jubilee 4.05 mm, but Piaget Altiplano 38mm 900P will 3,65mm, which is less by almost 10%.

Piaget replica watches was specialized for more than half a century, the production of ultra-thin mechanisms, holding numerous records in the field – 23 of 35 calibres made since 1957 setting a new benchmark in terms of thinness. The most recent of these is brought Altiplano 38mm 900P model, came to celebrate the 140 years of the Swiss brand. It is presented in a white or pink gold case 18k, and its price will be in the range 20000-30000 USD.


The new record of the thin replica watch the world has been made possible by ingenious solutions, radical such as fusion mechanism and the rear cover which now serves as a base plate. This solution has been approached in the past quartz watches, but the first time it is implemented for a mechanical replica watch. As a result, Piaget replica watches had to somehow reverse the traditional positions of the component parts, axles and the transmission is in turn integrated in the dial.


To manufacture Altiplano 38mm 900P it took two years of concerted efforts of teams of watchmakers, designers and builders skeleton. 145 components were each miniaturized mechanism within some measuring only 0.12mM, and arranged as to occupy minimal space. The thickness of the whole mechanism does not exceed the balance wheel, which makes his pointers are moved to the side and the parts are arranged horizontally.
