For years, watchmaker are trying to make the thinnest timepiece. But, only Swiss watchmaker Piaget managed to do that. Its latest creation – the Altiplano 900P is the world’s thinnest mechanical watch, released to celebrate its 140th anniversary. With its only 3.65mm thick case, this timepiece is the thinnest watch ever made, and the thinnest mechanical wristwatch currently in production. It has beaten out the previous “world’s thinnest watch,” Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Master Ultra-Thin Jubilee, which came in at 4.05 mm.

According to Perpetuelle, some of the various 145 parts composing the watch have been trimmed to a size sometimes barely thicker than a hair’s breadth – some wheels measuring a mere 0.12 mm thin (compared with 0.20 mm on a classic movement). The Altiplano is manually wound, has a power-reserve of 48 hours, and a case that measures in at a modest 38mm. The strap is black alligator while the buckle and pin are matching white gold, with an 18k white gold option. The price for this watch will be somewhere between $20,000 and $30,000.
