piaget flyback chronograph

In honour of the 25th Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, Piaget presents a new ultra-thin hand-wound chronograph watch in its Altiplano collection.

For the first time, this line with its pared-down, contemporary design features a major watch complication. Joining one good thing to another, the Piaget Altiplano Chronograph watch sets a new record in the ultra-thin field.

ULTRA-THIN

Once again demonstrating unparalleled expertise in the development of ultra-thin movements, Piaget’s new 883P movement and case thereby set a new double record for slimness, at just 4.65 mm for the hand-wound flyback chronograph movement, and a slender 8.24 mm for its precious case. Their in-house watchmakers and developers sought to achieve extreme slimness in all parts, whether for the cannon-pinion (0.12 mm), the barrel staff (0.115 mm), the chronograph gear finger (0.06 mm), as well as for the finesse of the dial, of the hand fittings and of the glass fastening.

FLYBACK

Additionally distinguished by its flyback function serving to reset the chronograph hands to zero simply by pressing them and then automatically restarting a new timing cycle. This finely crafted movement visible through the transparent case-back features the aesthetic refinement of finishes: circular Côtes de Genève, a circular-grained mainplate, bevelled bridges, sunburst wheels and blued screws.

The Piaget Altiplano Chronograph watch will be launched in September 2015. Visit www.piaget.com for details.
