The Collection


With the introduction of the Altiplano, Piaget managed to create the world's thinnest automatic movement in the world. Not satisfied with one world record, this year Piaget aims to take the Altiplano to the next level; this time by creating the world's thinnest skeletonized automatic watch. Meet the Altiplano Skeleton (not much creativity in the name).

Coming in a 38mm case this is actually the thinnest skeletonized caliber (Piaget 1200S) inside the world's thinnest skeletonized watch. In creating this timepiece Piaget confirms its leading role in classic elegant watches and its everlasting commitment to creating and perfecting ultra-thin mechanical movements.

Obviously when looking at skeleton (or openwork watches) one of the key factors is the watch design. Here Piaget has crafted an extremely gorgeous piece. Slight sunray-brushed and sandblasted surfaces on the movement meet the high polish of angles and blackened areas. The watch does an excellent job of showcasing the caliber and inner artistry. Coming only in white gold, the piece runs for around $60,000 - not too shabby.
