Manufacture Piaget 670P ultra-thin, hand-wound mechanical movement (4.6 mm) Developed to fit perfectly in an Altiplano case, the 670P ultra-thin hand-wound mechanical tourbillon movement is the first tourbillon from this iconically slender line. This round-shaped movement consisting of 157 components is only 4.6 mm thick and features a patented arbor winding system with setting wheel and a new barrel providing a power reserve of 48 hours. Formed by three titanium bridges, the ultra-thin flying tourbillon cage is suspended on a single axis and weighs only 0.2 grams. Positioned at 2 o’clock, it forms a figure eight with the off-centre hours and minutes counter at 8 o’clock, and indicates the seconds via one revolution per minute.

*Piaget luxury watches and jewellery are individually produced and thus the weight and carats of each product can vary from the displayed data.
1957 saw Piaget’s impressive craftsmanship move onto an even higher plane with the release of its first ultra-thin movement, the 9P – one of the thinnest ever made. This manual winding movement quickly became legendary within Haute Horlogerie, ensuring the Manufacture was destined to be associated with ultra-thin watches from then on. Three years later the Piaget 12P was born; at just 2.1 mm, this self-winding movement broke the first in a long line of records for thinness.
Incorporating as it does all the métiers of luxury watchmaking, Piaget’s Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie encompasses the tremendous creative energy, the touch of avant-garde, and the consummate skills to design and create dozens of new movements – mostly ultra-thin, all entirely in-house. From the simplest to the most complex, manual or self-winding, round or contoured, with fine skeletons, or even gem-set, Piaget movements mark defining moments in the history of Haute Horlogerie. Its Manufacture combines record-breaking fineness with breathtaking technical achievements, such as setting baguette-cut diamonds onto the working parts of a movement.
