The cushion-shaped calibre 700P, the first Piaget self-winding movement with high-precision generator, places quartz technology at the service of an iconic ultra-thin Piaget movement that inverts the traditional watchmaking design codes. It pays tribute to the ultra-thin 7P quartz watch presented by the Maison in 1976, then the thinnest in the world with a thickness of 3.1 mm. Measuring just 5.5 mm in thickness, the 700P mechanical movement boasts a 32,768 Hz high frequency regulation that controls the running of the movement. Beyond superior precision, the calibre 700P resists magnetic fields as well as gravity. Its inverted architecture reveals the main functional elements of the watch on the dial side, the off-centred generator and the platinum oscillating weight which create a harmonious figure 8. The hours and minutes, also off-centred, are displayed at 5 o'clock, while the power reserve indicator may be read on the case back. The finishes of the black-treated movement pay tribute to watchmaking tradition: a guilloché microrotor, sunray-finished and chamfered bridges, satin-brushed circular wheels and silver-finish screws.
Manufacture Piaget 700P ultra-thin self-winding mechanical movement with Black PVD treatment, high-precision generator and power-reserve indicator on the case back. Platinum oscillating weight.

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.
