Sihh 2018: The Concept Alone Is Scary Enough Piaget Altiplano Ultimate Concept Watch

2018 will undoubtedly be a crucial moment for Piaget’s fine watchmaking workshop! Piaget’s family has shown endless vitality in the pursuit of the ultra-thin, high-quality characterization. With the world record that is currently taking shape, Qingzhi’s most iconic Altiplpano series marks the 60th anniversary milestone.
Altiplano Ultimate Concept, the new masterpiece of Piaget’s ‘Research and Innovation’ department: The 2mm ultra-thin, unquestionably records the world’s thinnest manual winding watch record, more echoing This is why Piaget’s manual winding movement is based on the original dimensions of the legendary 9P movement, which has become the brand’s strongest and most powerful tribute to the ultra-thin watchmaking tradition.

Altiplano Ultimate Concept: Unbelievable record of the world’s thinnest hand-wound watch with an extreme slimness of 2mm

With the original intention of combining tradition with creativity, we seek the highest point in the ultimate slim journey. Thanks to four years of rigorous research and development and production process, this wisdom crystallizes the fusion of technology and aesthetics. Under the close cooperation of three engineers and watchmakers, designers, watch cases and movement makers at each stage , Figurative molding. To this end, Piaget has implemented new technology solutions never before seen, breaking through the existing boundaries of micromechanics with 5 new patents. The Altiplano Ultimate Concept watch represents the pioneering miniaturization watchmaking that only Piaget can master, and it will continue to prove the brand’s motto of ‘Always do better than required’.

From the side, you can experience the ultra-thinness of the watch almost like a movement

In order to give birth to Piaget’s new pinnacle in ultra-thin watchmaking, Piaget has delivered a simple but extremely difficult task to the R & D team: compact juxtaposed structures as much as possible to reduce the thickness to the lowest feasible limit, but not to waste. Reliability and aesthetics of the movement. Once again, Piaget’s engineers, designers, modelers and watchmakers have come up with unprecedented solutions, paving the way for unprecedented miniaturization. In order to reduce the precious tenths of a millimeter, this uniquely limited watch uses a new super-hard, sturdy Cobalt-based High-tech Alloy to ensure that the watch has the ultimate slimness In addition, it is not bent by external forces. The Altiplano Ultimate Concept watch adopts a ‘two-in-one’ structure, which eliminates the boundary between the internal movement and the external case, making the case two-way into external components and the movement substrate, and also the identifying feature of the Altiplano Ultimate series. .

It can be seen from the dial of the watch that its wheel structure is different from traditional watches. A large number of horizontal and inverted movements make it more costly to achieve ultra-thin realms.

The entire movement and the detailed components of the case have been rethought, designed and manufactured. From the perspective of extreme thinness, the thickness of some gear trains is only 0.12 mm (compared with the traditional movement of 0.20mm). . In this new mechanical structure, the unit of measurement is one hundredth of a millimeter, which means that craftsmen and watchmakers need to show the dexterity and dexterity that can only be accumulated through years of implementation. When the glass used in a general watch is 1mm, the thickness of the sapphire crystal used in this watch is also reduced to 0.2mm. However, it is essential that the technological innovation of the Altiplano Ultimate Concept is equipped with 5 patents. The inverted movement configuration gives Altiplano Ultimate the outstanding aesthetics, and also provides an excellent view of these patented movement protection device components.

To pay tribute to the classic ultra-thin bracelet 9P movement launched by the brand 60 years ago, this Altiplano Ultimate concept watch conveys the ultra-thin lineage inheriting the 9P movement with an amazing thickness of 2mm.

At 9 o’clock on the face plate, a redesigned governor is directly placed on the frame equipped with a ball bearing mechanism. Cancel the balance wheel bridge, the governor in the traditional structure is installed on the home-made recorder shock absorber. The shaft core of the balance wheel, the inner ring of the ball bearing mechanism and the balance plate form an inseparable unit. In this configuration, the balance and hairspring are fixed to the hairspring fixing ring and inverted, which means that the balance wheel is fixed above the balance spring, but the latter is usually fixed on the hairspring fixing ring. The deleted power correction system can be compensated by the adjustable balance spring post. This strategy implementation scheme can significantly reduce the thickness of the governor while ensuring accuracy and isochronism.

The process of assembling the Altiplano Ultimate Concept

At 6 o’clock, the innovatively designed barrel is also equipped with a special and unique structure. It subtracts the mainspring box and mainspring box cover. The mainspring that houses the ball bearing is directly combined with the frame. It is guided externally by the ball bearing mechanism and transmits power through the inner ring of the ball bearing mechanism. The large steel wheel and the central axis of the mainspring shaft are integrated and sealed above the mainspring box. This technical structure also ensures that the movement components are compactly arranged next to each other to achieve the overall lightness and thinness, while also ensuring the movement’s autonomy, allowing the Altiplano Ultimate Concept watch to have a 44-hour long-term power reserve.

Altiplano Ultimate Concept only 2mm thick bottom cover

The control system at 3 o’clock has also been rethought. It is designed to provide multiple time function settings, a winding system or a mechanical system related to any function, such as date or moon phase correction. Such devices can be added to this mechanical structure perfectly and compatible in the future. . This is a major innovation that opens up a whole new field of vision for ultra-thin watchmaking and complex functions. More specifically, this device consists of a joystick, a pinion gear mounted on the joystick, and is equipped with an optional escapement to form a dynamic link between the gear (and the lever) and the gear (between numerous gear trains).

These gears are each associated with a specific mechanism, so they can selectively control corresponding functions. In order to achieve this, the ordinary drum car (sliding pinion) has been changed to a worm screw type, so it can directly drive the belted gear train and pinion on the same plane as the rotating shaft (instead of overlapping) . The escapement is equipped with intermediate gears and pinions, a configuration that allows it to selectively engage each gear train (and its respective function). The use of a single intermediate gear and pinion to achieve selective linkage with a single or other gear train greatly reduces the number of parts, and therefore makes the arrangement of the structure in the device denser.
Piaget replaced the customary crown with a ‘Telescopic Crown’ to avoid destroying the beauty of the overall side lines. The retractable crown is retracted into the frame and fixed to the crown knob with a spring clip. This structural design perfectly integrates the crown and the bezel, and prevents the movement from being damaged due to improper use or impact.
Finally, when the thickness of the crystal glass of the watch is limited to the minimum (0.2mm), it still inevitably meets today’s seismic and waterproof standards (30 meters). The crystal glass mirror needs to be perfectly positioned and precisely aligned with the bezel. However, in the case of the Altiplano Ultimate Concept watch, it needs to be directly adhered to the case (traditional watch structure, the crystal glass mirror is first installed on the bezel, Then put it on the case to seal), it still can be perfectly stuck in place. Excessive use of contact agents will affect the accuracy of the watch’s travel time, but too little will not ensure a perfect seal. In order to meet this challenge, the assembly of crystal glass has been rethought. Piaget designed a ring-shaped compartment based on the bezel structure to inject the required amount of contact agent in both directions to ensure that the movement and the glass mirror can be stably fixed on the ideal position.

Place crystal glass with a thickness of only 0.2mm

The above five patents will be added to the patented inventions related to pointer assembly that were applied for when the 2014 Altiplano 900P watch was published. The pointer device is under the bridge, which is very different from the traditional structure that the pointer device is on the upper end of the bridge. It also releases the space between the minute wheel and the crystal glass. When the mirror surface is distorted due to pressure, this natural phenomenon has minimal impact on traditional watches, but it has a significant impact on ultra-thin watches with low safety tolerance. The pressure of the watch mirror will apply pressure to the bridge of the timepiece transmission device instead of the pointer, so the external force has no effect on the movement frequency of the movement.

Cobalt-based high-tech alloy material / Manual winding movement / Eccentricity, eccentric minute display / Sapphire crystal mirror / 41mm diameter
For Piaget, the reduction of ultra-thin wrist parts to the minimum required does not mean that the accuracy of the timepiece is obsolete, as is the final decoration of the watch. The cobalt-based high-tech alloy used in the Altiplano Ultimate Concept perfectly exudes a dazzling charm that blends technology with elegance. The rear case cover, which is processed directly on the case, is coated with black PVD, and the gear train is alternately polished with radial sunburst and annular corrugated matte finish. Carved carefully to reveal the subtle mechanism of low-key operation in the center of the Altiplano Ultimate Concept, the hand-chamfered bridge is also decorated with radial sunburst polishing, further strengthening the honor of this uniquely limited watch. The aesthetic codes cherished by Piaget are displayed, and all the decorative details are strictly executed in accordance with the most advanced traditional watchmaking norms. Therefore, the extreme thinness of the ancient case in front of the series case makes the original cumbersome final decoration process more time-consuming work. The ultra-thin 1.1mm crocodile leather with Kevlar Core composite and velvet calf leather-lined pin buckle leather strap adds a lasting touch to this superb masterpiece.
