The perfect expression of Piaget's unrivalled expertise in the designing of ultra-thin complication movements, the Piaget Emperador watch is the thinnest ultra-thin self-winding tourbillon skeleton model in the world, with its cushion-shaped case that is just 8.85 mm thick. Equipped with a remarkable inverted structure and entirely skeletonised, this complication watch has a traditional, classic design with its exclusive movement featuring a bottom plate and bridges in rose gold. In terms of indication display, there is no dial to obstruct the fascinating sight of the tourbillon, bridges and oscillating weight, made from platinum and plated with rose gold. The off-centred micro-rotor and tourbillon cage, surmounted by a letter 'P' for 'Piaget' , intertwine to form an '8'. This structure, the only one of its kind in the world, reveals all the watch's main functional elements - its self-winding mechanism, motor, regulator and gear train. Housed in a rose gold case, the 1270S movement is finished entirely by hand, using extremely complex techniques including chamfering and mirror polishing.
