Cooperating for the time with the World Polo Tour, the finals of the Third Beijing International Polo Open Tournament recommenced last September, 17th. And Piaget is once again honored to be the official timekeeper of China’s top polo tournament. A collaboration date back to the late seventies, when the fourth generation heir, Mr. Yves G. Piaget's passion about polo led to the promotion of the game by the family name.

In 1979, PIAGET was inspired by the strength and beauty of polo andass a result, a creative watch was forged in real gold surfaced with chain belt: PIAGET Polo collection, sponsoring polo events around the world ever since.

PIAGET is in great support of promoting polo throughout China. As Chinese elites are improving their life quality, polo as an elegant international sport, has started to get engaged in the social and entertainment life for leaders from all walks of life. With PIAGET's enormous contributions, it is believed that polo sport will be well advocated with its charisma and eminence.

And the great star at the Third Beijing International Polo Open Tournament is Piaget’s Ambassador to the world of polo, Marcos Heguy, whose appearance has become the top spot of this world-class polo tournament. In an incredible ambassador role, Heguy is the captain of the Piaget Pilará polo team and also supervises the new Pilará-Piaget Polo School, a training centre that give instruction and coaching to a new generation of players.

Piaget's Altiplano Double REcord

Discover the thinest watch and automatic movement in the world.

Piaget Altiplano



The Piaget Haute Horlogerie Manufacture has written some of the finest pages in the history of ultra-thin movements. For 50 years, its excellence and developed ultra-thin calibres have illustrated Piaget's incredible capacity for innovation. Piaget is nowadays at the very pinnacle of the art of fine watchmaking.

And with the launch of the 9P and 12P movements in 1957 and 1960 respectively, it quickly became a master of ultra-thin movements.

Creating the world's thinnest automatic watch and movement required all the skills that Piaget has to offer, involving everyone from the designers to the engineers.

An ultra-thin ideology is at the heart of Piaget's culture and history. Since the '50s, the legendary 9P and 12P movements have inspired a range of calibres as thin as they are efficient. The latest 1200P and 1208P movements have set new records today, majestically highlighting the refined aesthetics of the Piaget Altiplano collection of ultra-thin timepieces.

Developing the ultra-thin concept provided Piaget with the opportunity of expressing two main features of its personality: the utmost discretion shown since its beginnings and the lavish extravagance that burst forth in the early 1960s.

In  1957 the brand was advocating great elegance and sobriety of style, a principle to which it has remained faithful ever since. 50 years on, the design of high-tech objects which are now part of our everyday life has proven Piaget right. The ultra-thin watch has always featured in Piagets collections as an embodiment of the brands distinguishing characteristics and its unique expertise.

Watches are housed in gold cases, or double cases to provide a dual time-zone display. The movement itself is revealed through exquisitely decorated, skeletonised and magnified dials.

Diamonds could not fail to be included in this sparkling display of creativity. They light up watch cases and bracelets, or outline celebrity fingerprints on the dial of the Altiplano watch offering a precious, timeless memento of a charitable gesture by Laetitia Casta, Vanessa Paradis, Liz Hurley and HRH, Prince Albert II of Monaco. At Piaget, the history of ultra-thin watchmaking is also a story of great generosity.


Piaget Altiplano Watch

Technical Information:

Piaget Altiplano watch, 43 mm. Case in 18K white gold. Sapphire crystal case back. Manufacture Piaget 1208P ultra-thin self-winding mechanical movement with small seconds, the thinnest in the world (2.35 mm thick).


Watch     G0A35130
Ultra-thin, self-winding, white gold

Timeless purity and classicism converge in this ultra-thin white-gold timepiece, which pays homage to the elegance and refinement characteristic of Piaget. In a resolutely minimalistic spirit reflected by the highly contemporary dimensions of the Altiplano, Piaget continues to push back the limits of micromechanics by achieving two new records in the field of ultra-thin watches: thanks to its micro-rotor principle, that of the thinnest self-winding mechanical movement on the market measuring just 2.35 mm thick; and that of the thinnest watch in its category, with a thickness of 5.25 mm. The silver-coloured dial, arranged on three levels, is also highly refined with its small-seconds display at 4 o'clock. A truly modern classic that is both sober and elegant.

Vivian Hsu and Piaget Shine at the Venice Film Festival





The exquisite emotion flow in film, along with the glamorous sparks in jewelry, are about to work their magic together on the red carpet of the 68th Venice Film Festival.

Swiss Luxury Watchmaker and Jeweler Piaget walked the eminent actress Vivian Hsu on the red carpet of the Venice Film Festival on September 1st. Miss Vivian Hsu is the leading actress of the epic feature "Seediq Bale" directed by elite director WEI Te-Sheng. Based on the history of the Wushe Incident, an uprising that was led by Mona Rudao of the aboriginal Sediq tribe against Japanese military forces during the period of colonization, this epic feature is the first Taiwanese film nominated in the Golden Lion award at this year's Venice Film Festival.

In order to sweep every staring eye with Vivian Hsu's superior charm and glamour, just like every eye-catching and extraordinary image captured in films that moves audiences deep from their hearts, Piaget sets off her sophisticated beauty with its spellbinding fully-paved tonneau high jewelry watch, a pair of Magic Garden diamond earrings and a Limelight high jewelry diamond ring in the international press conference held early in the afternoon, and ingeniously switched her watch into a Piaget Limelight Paradise cuff watch to amplify her daring yet elegant aura, just like the role she plays in the film. The fish-scaled diamond pattern extended out from the square diamond-paved case of the Limelight Paradise cuff watch emerged slimness and grace through its lithe skeleton outline, and further echoed to the elegance of the python prints of Vivian Hsu’s long gown, which accentuated the wildness and ebullience of the aboriginal spirit convey in the film Seediq Bale. Possessing natural grace and organic life-force, the Magic Garden of Piaget diamond earrings in water drop motif and the domed diamond ring, each respectively made statements to liberty and fortitude. The true Seedig spirit was brought to live with Vivian Hsu’s postures and the details of her look.

The perfect alliance between Vivian Hsu and Piaget is making a persuasive canvass.

Piaget Ultra thin-art

A double record






Extreme thinness is at the heart of Piaget’s culture and history. Since the 1950s, the legendary 9P and 12P movements have inspired a line of calibers that are as thin as they are high-performance. The Manufacture’s incredible innovative capacities and its unique creations in terms of ultra-thinness have allowed it to stand out from the crowd, assuming a position at the very summit of the art of watchmaking.

Presented in 1957, the hand-wound 9P caliber represents a technological revolution, and a turning-point in the history of Piaget.

With more than 30 new movements in the space of 12 years, Piaget has become the unchallenged master of the ultra-thin movement.

Since the 1960s, Piaget has asserted itself as a specialist in jewelry watches.

Double record for Piaget in 2010: the thinnest self-winding movement and self-winding timepiece in the world!

In 1960, Piaget offered its male clientele the thinnest self-winding movement in the world: the 12P.

Thanks to its Footprint concept, and with the participation of personalities, Piaget takes part in the charitable causes that it holds dear.

In 1998, the ultra-thin watch took the name Altiplano, a reference to the fascinating bare plateaus of Argentina.

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of this famous caliber 12P, Piaget once again pushes the limits of miniaturization with a double record!
