Only Watch is an auction of unique timepieces by some of the world’s most famous brands. The sixth such auction will take place in November and will once again raise funds for the Monaco Association Against Muscular Dystrophy. Each participating brand offers a unique watch. Sometimes that can be a different dial colour or material but it can also offer up a completely new model that will not be offered anywhere else. We’ll feature a number of these watches in the lead up to the auction, starting today with the Piaget Altiplano 900P.
Rather than being a truly unique piece, the Only Watch Piaget Altiplano 900P makes only a subtle change to its usual design, opting for red hands. The case back also identifies it as an Only Watch piece.
The Altiplano has another thing going for it: It happens to be the world’s thinnest mechanical watch with a thickness (slimness?) of only 3.65 millimeters. Piaget achieves this by using the case back as the bottom plate for the movement driven by its 145 components.
