The Piaget Emperador Tourbillon watch is an exquisite creation of high horology that shows off the world's thinnest shaped flying tourbillon movement. Piaget’s devotion to the slimness of their movements is another reason why watchnuts dismiss them; after all real men wear “butch” watches with “butch” movements; right? However as any watchmaker will tell you, making a thick movement is easy; making a thin one is a much more difficult task. Deciding that making some of the thinnest movements was not enough; Piaget decided to make the world’s thinnest tourbillon.
