Piaget: Unparalleled Heritage of Ultra-Thin Watches
Interweaving artistry and innovation, Piaget luxury watches are defined by pristine lines and timeless elegance. These classically elegant timepieces are one of the most prestigious ambassadors of the watchmaking world.
Since 1957, Piaget has built a reputation for being a manufacturer that combines exquisite craftsmanship to create the finest artisanal-like timepieces. In fact, Piaget is widely known as the master of the ultra-thin Swiss watches after having crafted one of the thinnest movements ever made – the Calibre 9P (2 mm thick).
Continuing this trend, this watch manufacturer developed the Calibre 12P, the thinnest movement in the world at just 2.3mm in height. Timepieces from this collection also feature intricate in-house calibers as well as pieces encrusted with hundreds of brilliant cut diamonds.
Other iconic model collections from Piaget include the Altiplano, ultra-thin dress watches, and the Polo collection which boasts a rounded cushion-shaped dial.
History of Piaget Watches
Even from a young age, Georges Édouard Piaget felt a passion for watchmaking. In 1874, at only 19 years of age, he set up his first workshop on the family farm in the small village of La Côte-aux-Fées. Here, he spent his days meticulously crafting high-precision movements and components.
“Always do better than necessary” – this is Piaget’s motto and the mindset that continues to drive the company today.
Within a few years, he started supplying his creations to some of the Swiss watch industry’s major brands. From a manufacturer of movements to a creator of luxury timepieces, the company started to evolve at the hands of Timothée Piaget, Georges-Édouard’s son.
And in 1943, Piaget became a registered trademark.
The obsession with ultra-thin timepieces started with Valentin Piaget, the founder’s grandson, who pursued this sleek technicality. This later became the brand’s signature.
In 1957, Piaget introduced the manual Caliber 9P which marked a major milestone in the manufacturer’s history. In 1960, the brand released the ingenious automatic caliber 12P (2.3 mm thick). This established Piaget as the reference for elegance in ultra-thin watches.
