24-7 (Singapore) - - X For ... X-factor -

Ul­tra-thin is in, and this state­ment rings truest for Pi­aget, which holds the most num­ber of world records for the thinnest move­ments. Af­ter all, ex­treme slen­der­ness is at the heart of the Swiss watch­maker’s her­itage. In 1957, the ground­break­ing hand-wound 9P move­ment was un­veiled, fol­lowed by the Cal­i­bre 12P in 1960 – the world’s thinnest au­to­matic move­ment at the time. Th­ese paved the way for the world’s skin­ni­est au­to­matic move­ment and watch in 2010, the record-break­ing skele­ton ver­sions in 2012, and this year’s world’s slimmest case and move­ment for an au­to­matic minute re­peater.
