Piaget Continues Its Support To Only Watch With A Technical Masterpiece: The Altiplano Ultimate Automatic

Every two years, the premier international watchmaking charity event, Only Watch, brings together and exhibits unique exceptional timepieces. Under the patronage of HRH Prince Albert II of Monaco, Only Watch collects funds to support scientific and medical research on neuromuscular diseases and Duchene muscular dystrophy.

For this 8th edition, Piaget is delighted to contribute once more to the research and continues its support. This year, the Maison offers a unique one of a kind timepiece designed for the event which will be featured in the charity auction on November 9, 2019. Prior to this exceptional event, a travelling exhibition will start at the Monaco Yacht Show on the 25th of September 2019 followed by stopovers around the world in Europe, Asia, Middle East and America.

Chabi Nouri, Piaget’s CEO shares: “Piaget is thrilled to help, once more, scientific research. Only Watch raises awareness of this degenerative neuromuscular disease through its worldwide travelling exhibition. This year, the Maison is proud to offer a unique masterpiece: a watch that is defying the limits of feasibility through its ultra-thin profile.”
 

The Altiplano Ultimate Automatic

The Maison presents a unique Piaget Altiplano Ultimate Automatic in rose gold in a never-seen-before colour combination of blue, the Only Watch colour of the year.

The Maison’s designers, developers, engineers, and watchmakers worked together for three years on each stage of development, production and adjustment to give life to this ultra-thin masterpiece – for which each technical choice has an aesthetic impact and vice versa.
 

The Altiplano Ultimate Automatic 910P movement and case form an indivisible whole. As some of the components are barely thicker than 0.15mm, the whole watch is 4.30mm thick, which makes it one of the thinnest mechanical watches in the world. Driven by the same concern for space optimization, the oscillating weight in 22K gold with blue PVD coating is positioned on the movement periphery so as to be incorporated into its thickness and thus further contribute to the overall slimness.

The hour and minute display is also integrated within the caliber, featuring a unique blue dial colour that is dear to Piaget and part of Piaget’s heritage.

Engraved on the case-back, the “Only Watch Unique Piece 2019” inscription pays tribute to the exclusivity of the watch specifically designed for the charity event.
