1270S (59336)

1270S skeleton movement

Figuring among the thinnest tourbillon skeleton automatic movements in the world with its thickness of only 5.05 mm, the 1270S tourbillon skeleton caliber is instantly identified by its contemporary design. This movement's inverted structure gives a view on its display side of its tourbillon, bridges and oscillating weight in black PVD-treated platinum. The off-centered and black-surfaced micro-rotor and tourbillon cage, surmounted by a letter 'P' for 'Piaget', intertwine to form an '8' in a contemporary color tone, matched by the deep black of the screws and hands. This unique structure makes visible all the watch's main functions – its automatic mechanism, its driving force, its regulating system and its gear-train – together with its hours and minutes hands, which are also off-centered. Piaget's mastery of extreme miniaturization is matched by the outstanding quality of the movement's finishing and decoration, combining traditional craftsmanship and the stylishly simple lines of contemporary design.
