Manufacture Piaget 12PC1 ultra-thin automatic mechanical movement.

It features an off-centered oscillating weight in 24K gold. The vertical Côtes de Genève, the circular-grained mainplate and the beveled bridges round off this exceptional movement, recalling the aesthetic codes cherished by the Swiss watchmaking brand.
