When Piaget launched its in-house 12P movement in 1960 it was the thinest in the world because it drew on the idea of using a micro-rotor to ensure its ultra-thinness. Fifty years later this caliber in turn gave rise to the new generation 1200P caliber. For Piaget’s new ultra thin 4mm caliber the Manufacture drew on the ultra-thin 1200P caliber while adding an additional Perpetual Calendar with a moon-phase mechanism. The stainless steel case is outfitted with a bracelet also in stainless steel but which can be interchanged with a green rubber strap. The timepiece has a power reserve of 42 hours. ©Trish Valicenti for The Gourmet Gazette. https://www.piaget.com/ww-e
