With its thickness of 4.65 mm, the 883P calibre is the thinnest hand-wound flyback chronograph movement in the world. Equipped with a 50-hour power reserve, it features hours and minutes hands, a small seconds display at 6 o'clock, a chronograph with a 30-minute counter at 3 o'clock, and a 24-hour second time zone display at 9 o'clock. Thanks to its flyback function, a single press of the button can reset the chronograph hands to zero and automatically start a new timing cycle. Furthermore, the chronograph is governed by a column wheel to coordinate all its phases, and a vertical clutch system to assure perfect accuracy. The 883P flyback chronograph movement features finishes crafted in the purest tradition of fine watchmaking: circular Côtes de Genève, circular-grained main plate, bevelled bridges, sunburst wheels and blued screws.
The world's thinnest ultra-thin mechanical chronograph movement (4.65 mm thick), the Manufacture Piaget 883P hand-wound calibre has small seconds, chronograph flyback function and a dual time zone display.

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.
