The 1160P movement is a development of the 880P self-winding mechanical chronograph movement. This self-winding chronograph movement has central seconds, a 12 hours counter at 9 o'clock, and a 30 minutes counter at 3 o'clock. The date at 6 o'clock completes the indications of this movement, which has a thickness of only 5.72 mm. The various phases of the 1160P chronograph movement are controlled by a column-wheel; a construction method renowned for its chronometric qualities. In addition to its remarkable accuracy, its vertical coupling-clutch system spares the 50-hour power reserve. The 1160P movement vibrates at 28,800 vph (4 Hz) and is fitted with a balance stop. The 1160P movement includes fine finishes: Piaget coat-of-arms engraved on the slate grey oscillating weight, Côtes de Genève decorations, circular-grained mainplate, bevelled bridges, sunburst wheels and blued screws.

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.
