Essence of Piaget 910P
To assure slim demands, watch makers control thickness of all of mechanical devices and hand-laid components, less thick than gears, so, eccentric dial displaying hours-minutes is finished perfectly. The small movement reflects precision. A floated barrel single bridge supports is set on the dial. 22K black PVD gold-made rotors are placed on the periphery of the movement. The design not only saves space but achieve thin effect. Usually, surface of crystal will be out of shape slightly when a wristwatch bears huge pressure. Then, the result will press the hands and stop the movement to work. To avoid it, watch makers in Piaget remove hands under the bridge so that normal operation will go.
Besides ultimate components and reliable performance, Piaget adheres to fine decoration crafts. Bottom plate is treated through matte polishing and sand-blast process. Sun-brushed and matte circle-shaped grain appears on balance wheel. The bridge is finished through the bevel edge and matte sun-brushed polishing. Special power correction system is engraved with full “P” logo. Decoration crafts reflects aesthetic rules of Piaget. Piaget Altiplano Ultimate 910P shows unique style.
