Beauty, precision, perfection and compactness – are the main characteristics to aspire to modern high horology. The famous Swiss brand Piaget boldly continues to experiment and create ultra-thin model wrist watch.
The company’s expertise in the development Piaget ultra timers simply unique. New 1208P caliber 2.35 mm in thickness provided the company became the world’s thinnest automatic market mechanism.
The technology, built into the watch case Altiplano 43 mm, had a thickness of 5.25 mm and was recognized in the category most flat for hours. A unique Piaget 600P caliber 3.5 mm thick shot to fame in the world of ultra-mechanism with manual winding tourbillon and robust.
As a result, engineers have concluded that it is necessary to combine these two calibers in one model of watch. The result was in September 2011, the new chronograph Emperador Coussin Tourbillon Automatic.
“By combining two unique caliber, we got the first ultra-thin automatic movement with a tourbillon – proudly noted the Director-hour direction of Frank Piaget Tuzo. We have kept in a confined space with the maximum limit the maximum number of fillings, creating an Ultra-hours in its category.
“Release of the new Emperador Coussin Tourbillon Automatic mark set two records: 5.55 mm thick gauge are 1207P and 10.4 mm – the thickness of the watch.”Some wheels have a thickness of 0.12 mm, which corresponds to the thickness of a human hair. The absolute minimum is present in the size of all the details. Dial model made of ultra-thin sapphire glass and marked with a laser “, – explained Tuzo.
Another original idea from the masters of company – the crown in an unusual place. “Set the crown on the front side, it was decided in the process. This feature further enhances the vivid nature of the new hours, which will then be complicated by new features – all find a place “- Frank assured Tuzo.
