Piaget uses his record watch, the Altiplano Ultimate Automatic, to produce the unique piece destined for the 2019 edition of the Only Watch.
The Altiplano Ultimate Automatic Only Watch 2019 is the watch chosen by Piaget to donate to the Only Watch 2019 charity auction. We are facing the flattest automatic watch in the world, which, given the continuous war of thinness records That Piaget has maintained with Bvlgari in recent years is a lot to say.

Piaget altiplano 910p review
Piaget presented the Altiplano Ultimate Automatic in December 2017, and with it’s ridiculous 4.30 mm, beating the 5.15 mm of the Octo Finissimo Automatic, it was built as the flattest automatic watch in the world. To this clock, we dedicate an article in depth where you can consult all the details about it. This record keeps it until now, and I doubt that it will be knocked down until Piaget itself decides to mass-produce its unspeakable Altiplano Ultimate Concept with its impossible thickness of 2 mm, presented at the SIHH show in 2018.
The Altiplano Ultimate Automatic Only Watch 2019 does not present any weight variation concerning the regular production model. Without sounding justification, it is easy to deduce that in such an extreme clock, little can be modified without altering its essence. You can not change the technical parameters of the movement since any change would affect its structure and therefore, its thickness.
It is not even advisable to modify the material with which your box is made sense its bottom is at the same time the stage where all the bridges of the movement are supported. That is why Piaget uses pink gold, already available in the Piaget catalog. He might have thought about steel or titanium, but his hardness might have made machining difficult.
Therefore, we must look for the differences of this Altiplano Ultimate Automatic Only Watch 2019 with the already known versions are purely aesthetic variations of the chromatic character. Specifically, it is the blue color that gives his personality to this only Watch 2019 variant.
We find this blue color in two main elements: the sphere that tells us the time and the circular oscillating mass that is visible on the side of the sphere. Piaget also uses blue for the screws that hold the movement bridges, and that can be seen through the sapphire crystal on the front of the watch.

The bottom of the box because I mentioned before of being part of the movement, is necessarily massive, in this case in rose gold. In it, we find inscriptions “ONLY WATH” and “UNIQUE PIECE” that distinguish this watch.
The estimated Christie’s price that will reach the Altiplano Ultimate Automatic Only Watch 2019 is 27,000 dollars.
