WHO THEY ARE Founded in 1874 in La Cote-aux-Fees, Switzer­land, by Ge­orges Edouard Pi­aget, who de­vel­oped and pro­duced watch move­ments for other com­pa­nies. In 1943, Pi­aget started pro­duc­ing its own watches, and un­veiled its first be­jew­elled watch col­lec­tion in the 1960s. CLAIM TO FAME Its Cal­i­bre 12P, de­vel­oped in 1960, an ul­tra-thin move­ment at 2.3mm, was listed in the Guin­ness Book of World Records as the thinnest self­wind­ing move­ment in the world at the time. WHAT’S HOT The Emperador Coussin Ul­tra-thin Minute Re­peater, which is of­fi­cially the world’s slimmest au­to­matic minute re­peater watch (9.4mm), driven by the world’s slimmest au­to­matic minute re­peater move­ment (4.8mm). RETAILS AT Pi­aget bou­tiques at Ma­rina Bay Sands and Ngee Ann City, and Cortina Watch, DFS Gal­le­ria, Sin­cere Watch, The Hour Glass and Swiss Watch Gallery
