Speaking of the ultra-thin watches, Piaget is definitely the no.1 in this field but it is not born to be the top. founding in 1874 in Swiss, Piaget started producing watches in 1957. Right in the ten years, from 1950 to 1960, is the critical period when the global economy booms and social order come back to the right track, and thus Swiss watch switched from the military to the domestic. In this period, people has a common sense about the luxury watch: thin and precious metal. So, many brands developed ultra-thin movement and among them the Piaget brand stood out in the crowd. 1957, its automatic winding movement-9P, was released.
