As you well know, at Absolute Breton we are lovers of exclusive leather goods, as well as other type of articles like the high quality watches. For that reason, this time we would like to talk about a very special watch that can be a perfect Christmas present for a person who would be really lucky for receiving this exceptional piece. We are referring to the Piaget altiplano 900P, the world's thinnest mechanical watch.

Piaget is one of the houses that have always stood out for being leader on the design of luxury extra-thin watches. This time, the Altiplano 900P has been designed with a case of just 3.65 mm thin and 38 mm diameter.

 

The watchmakers, case builders and designers of the firm have combined their efforts to create this excellent engineering masterpiece composed of 145 pieces altogether, reduced to a size that, sometimes, does not reach the thickness of one hair. For example, some of its wheels have a thickness of just 0.12 mm.

The secret of this slenderness, according the house Piaget, lies in the structure itself, since they were able to merge the case and calibre, so that the mechanism and the external components form a unique entity.

This elegant  hand-wound watch is endowed with a 48-hour power reserve. It has an avant-garde design with a 18 carat white gold case with 78 brilliant-cut diamonds embedded. A real luxury completed with a black strap made of  crocodile leather and white gold buckle.

It should be also pointed out the watch's name, which is a gesture that Piaget had with one of its more valued pieces, the legendary Calibre 9P, which was the first ultrathin hand-wound watch that the Swiis house created in 1957.

As we said, this is an exceptional watchmaking piece, ideal for a gift for someone special, although something so exclusive is not available for everybody's budget. This specific watch costs 29,600 €.

 

To preserve such jewel, there's nothing like choosing a case for watches made with leather from Ubrique. The cases, boxes, trays and briefcases to store watches by Absolute Breton are also exquisite pieces that can be customized and will accompany your watch for a lifetime.
