The 1160P calibre provides remarkable accuracy and reliability thanks to its column wheel, vertical coupling clutch and stop seconds.

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.
