The 800P movement belongs to the third generation of Piaget self-winding, ultra-thin movements, and has given rise to numerous variations and features. It is fitted with a balance with screws, balance stop, central seconds and large date window positioned at 6 o'clock. To give it ample autonomy, the movement has also been fitted with a double barrel that, thanks to its two springs, provides an increased power reserve. Circular Côtes de Genève, a circular-grained mainplate, bevelled bridges, blued screws and an oscillating weight engraved with the Piaget coat-of-arms add the finishing touches to this movement and are reminders of the Swiss watchmaking brand's high aesthetic values.

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.
