Until a few weeks ago, Piaget Altiplano 900P watch held the record as the world’s thinnest mechanical watch, with a thickness of 3.65 mm. Now, this record belongs to the new, 3.60 mm thin, Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Squelette watch. With JLC 849ASQ mechanism, which is part of the Jaeger-LeCoultre caliber 849 line, measures only 1.85 mm, which helped to create the thinnest mechanical watch in the world.
Master Ultra Thin Squelette is a collection of four watches, which includes two grand fuenamel models, with 18-carat white or pink gold, and two models which are decorated with diamonds. The mechanism is self-winding and has 119 components, 33-hour power reserve, the frequency of 21,600 vph and waterproof up to 3 bar.
As a tribute to the traditional art of watchmaking, the dial of this model contains 12 time zones. This beautifully designed collection comes with black or brown belts with buckles made of gold. Prices are in range from $58,000, to $75,000, depending on the decorations and jewels.
