On October 24, 2014, in Geneva, Piaget won the first prize of the ‘Best Watch 2014’ by Montres Passion magazine for its Altiplano 900P, the world’s thinnest mechanical watch. . One year after winning the same award with the Altiplano Date 40mm automatic watch, Piaget continued to become the undisputed master of watchmaking in the ultra-thin watch industry.
Win by style
At the ‘Watch of the Year’ evening hosted by Piaget, the brand’s sense of pride exploded.
