For the fifth edition of the Only Watch auction, Piaget chose one of its signature models and applied a slight modification to make it unique. It is a breathtaking Altiplano Skeleton watch, known as the world’s slimmest self-winding open-worked timepiece. This time, it has a white gold case, whose distinction comes from a black PVD treatment. We expect this stunning timepiece to reach one of the highest prices at the upcoming charity auction in Monaco.
Another thing that makes this watch so special is an ultra-thin mechanism (Caliber 1200S) which is, with the thickness of 2.4mm, the slimmest automatic skeleton movement in the world. Its white gold case has the diameter of 38 mm and it is just 5.34mm thick. Its nicely polished and black PVD coated surface makes a great contrast with satin-finished plate and the bridges of the open-worked mechanism, as well as with the matching black dauphine-style hands, a blackened platinum oscillating weight and black screws.
Bridges and plate are hand-beveled and hand-drawn, while the oscillating weight comes with the engraved crest of Monaco. At the case-back, there is the engraving “Only Watch 2013 – unique piece”. Finally, there is the Piaget “P” attached to the regulator assembly. Calibre 1200 S beats at the frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and ensures the standard power-reserve of 44 hours. The design of its balance-bridge is harmonious and symmetrical, while its hour-wheel bridge has an amazing thickness of 0.11 mm.
Piaget Altiplano Skeleton model for the Only Watch is the true haute horological masterpiece which offers luxury, stylishness and the high-end technological expertise. For the final touch of elegance, there is a black leather strap featuring a white gold buckle with black PVD coating.
