Piaget has just announced its first new piece for 2016, which will debut live at the SIHH in January. With its new Emperador Coussin XL 700P watch, Swiss brand celebrates 40th anniversary of its first in-house quartz movement – the ultra thin 7P calibre which was entirely developed in-house and presented, in 1976, as the thinnest quartz movement in the world at just 3.1 mm thick.

The movement inside the new watch is regulated by the high frequency of quartz oscillating at 32,768Hz that controls the speed of a generator turning at 5.33 turns per second. The quartz controls the rotation of the generator and wheels train to ensure an extremely high degree of precision, according to Piaget, as well as perfect resistance to magnetic fields and gravity. This new caliber, for which at least ten patents have been filed, stems from two years of research, all based on an original Swiss concept first registered in 1972.

The dial side of this 46.5mm white gold Emperador Coussin XL 700P features a very visible guilloché micro-rotor adorned with the Piaget coat-of-arms, sunburst and chamfered bridges, circular stain-brushed wheels and silver-toned screws. The caliber’s deep black shade is matched by a black ADLC-coated gold bezel.
This anniversary watch mingling tradition and innovation will be issued in a 118-piece limited edition.
