Piaget Altiplano Ultra-thin Series, Luxury Replica Watches

Since its inception, Piaget has continuously improved their ultra-thin watchmaking skills and perfected them daily, making them as natural as their own. Along with the colorful, creative thoughts and dynamic evolution, Piaget’s Altiplano ultra-thin series Ultimate Concept watch finally takes on a new life in the midnight blue.

Piaget’s master watchmakers will pass on the ultra-thin gene deeply integrated into the brand. For nearly 150 years, Piaget’s inheritance of ultra-thin craftsmanship has transcended the profession itself. It is also a state of mind, a culture, and an identity, starting from the movement and spreading to the creation of the overall work. Coinciding with the grand opening of the “Watches and Miracles” high-end watch exhibition in Shanghai in 2023, Piaget, as the founder of the aesthetic design and basic skills of ultra-thin watches, will reinterpret ultra-thin mechanical swiss replica watches and launch a look with a thickness of only 2 mm—Piaget Altiplano Ultimate Concept watch.

The new watch adopts a charming midnight blue tone, and the design is more refined and straightforward, thus highlighting the brand’s iconic color. This is the first time Piaget has launched the Midnight Blue model of the Altiplano Ultra-Thin Series Ultimate Concept watch. Before this, the Altiplano Ultra-Thin Series Ultimate Concept watches were customized to customer needs. Therefore, there were only a few customers. You can have this joy.

The pursuit of perfect art

At the 2023 “Watches and Miracles” Haute Horlogerie Exhibition in Geneva, Piaget Piaget demonstrated the magnetic emerald Altiplano ultra-thin series Ultimate Concept watch, equipped with a 900P-UC ultra-thin movement, a cobalt alloy case, and a thickness of It is only 2 mm; and the blue Altiplano ultra-thin series Ultimate automatic watch is equipped with Piaget 910P ultra-thin self-winding mechanical movement, rose gold case, and is only 4.3 mm thick. These two works not only demonstrate Piaget’s profound strength and significance in the field of ultra-thin watchmaking but also demonstrate its superb control of color and artistic inheritance. Luxury replica watches.

These dazzling ultra-thin works are a vivid interpretation of Piaget’s ultimate heritage. On top of continuing the historical heritage, the constantly innovative watch works continue to interpret the ultimate in thinness in an unimaginable way. Using millimeters as a unit, the most demanding processing and creation of watchmaking materials makes them Simple and elegant appearance is even more hard-won.

The origin of ultra-thin watches

Even before Piaget was founded, it had provided various watch parts to major Swiss high-end watchmakers. Since Piaget was founded by Georges-Édouard Piaget in 1874, it has been committed to producing the most sophisticated adjustment system in watches-lever escapements. In the 1920s, with its deep cultivation in this field, Piaget immediately developed a second advantage: designing, creating, and manufacturing ultra-thin pocket watch movements, making it an unprecedented 2.4 mm.

To achieve his goal, the founder of Piaget made a far-sighted decision several years ahead of the watch industry: to integrate the entire watchmaking process and master the precision technology of ultra-thin watchmaking. The watchmaking workshop where this idea was born is rooted in the birthplace of the family, a village called Côte-aux-Fées.

Pioneer of ultra-thin movements

Piaget is well aware of its mission as a pioneer in watchmaking and first introduced the concept of ultra-thin watch movements. In 1957, the 9P manual winding mechanical movement came out. Among them, “9” stands for 9 French cents; that is, its diameter is only 20 mm; “P” stands for Piaget, which is the iconic feature of the brand.

Piaget only uses this movement in precious metal watch works, making it even more iconic. The same is true for the 12P self-winding mechanical movement that follows the 9P: an ultra-thin thickness of 2.3 mm, and the revolutionary automatic rotor is integrated into this ultra-thin movement. Gold craftsmanship and ultra-thin movements are the two hallmarks of the brand since its inception. There is no doubt that Piaget has become a world-renowned high-end watch manufacturer with its excellent watchmaking skills.

Fans of minimalism

The third iconic feature of Piaget has been vividly demonstrated in the watch works since the establishment of the brand: simple lines, exquisite dials, and aesthetic features displayed in the design, all of which highlight Piaget’s exquisite craftsmanship. Piaget’s family culture and their rigorous attitude towards work are a powerful driving force in achieving a perfect job, and this self-driving force is also reflected in the ingenious use of materials and textures in the results.

The motto of the Piaget family is also the spirit that the brand adheres to – “Always do better than required (Faire toujours mieux qu’il n’est nécessaire).” It is engraved on the bottom of all toolboxes and permanently imprinted on every toolbox, from the heart of a Piaget master craftsman. Piaget’s continuous improvement of ultra-thin movements in watchmaking skills vividly reflects the brand’s ultimate pursuit of art and craftsmanship.

A milestone in achieving ultra-thinness

Like its design process, producing the 9P manual winding mechanical movement requires ten years of hard work. In the 1950s, watchmaking processes were mainly done by hand or machines with limited capabilities. Each component requires manual inspection, and adjustments and corrections are also common. Under such production conditions, polishing a movement with a thickness of about 2 mm is not easy for master artisans. This requires them to be proficient in materials and willing to continue challenging. Because of this, even though the 9P manual winding mechanical movement was replaced by the 12P self-winding automatic movement in 1960, it was not until the 1970s that the thickness of the 12P movement was comparable to that of the 9P movement.

Such works have been named after their style since the 1960s. In 1998, Piaget created a unique symbol for its ultra-thin pieces – the “Altiplano ultra-thin series” was officially born. The name of this series fits all people’s imagination of high-end watchmaking skills, flat appearance, simple style, and ultra-thin watches with low-key and exquisite style. In the ultra-thin field, Piaget breaks through and breaks boundaries, constantly pushing the ultra-thin area to strive for excellence and reach its peak.

The “Altiplano Ultra-Thin Series Ultimate Concept Watch” was launched.

It is worth mentioning that the Altiplano Ultra-Thin Series Ultimate Concept watch is only 2 mm thick, has a waterproof depth of 20 meters, and is equipped with a traditional crown. Developing its first functional prototype watch took seven years and another two years to meet Piaget’s strict reliability standards. Its case is made of specially made cobalt alloy to prevent deformation, and its thickness is reduced by 25% compared with precious metal cases.

As the 150th anniversary of Piaget approaches, this bright light will continue to shine in significant boutiques.
