Just in: the race for thin is on. Again.

While Bulgari’s Octo Finissimo Automatique from last year held the title of world’s thinnest self-winding watch for a while, it’s been upstaged by the wonder of Piaget’s latest Altiplano Ultimate 910P. One must stress however, that in all technicality, you could consider Bulgari’s as the world’s thinnest self-winding watch in a traditional setting (as untraditional as the watch may look) and Piaget’s as the world’s thinnest self-winding watch with joint case and movement.

Terms aside, Piaget’s newest wonder is nothing short of impressive. At 4.30 mm thick, the watch is a variant (or evolution) of the Piaget Altiplano 900P that still sits in the record book as the thinnest manual winding timepiece. Increasing the size from 38mm to 41mm, Piaget has allowed for a 22l gold peripheral rotor that moves along on the dialside.

Even better, the watch still boasts an impressive 50 hour power reserve when fully wound. It’ll be available in both 18k pink gold and 18k white gold. Stay tuned to our social media channels as well as online. We’ll definitely be posting a video highlighting the peripheral rotor.
