Would you pay over S$25,000 for the world's thinnest mechanical watch?

Piaget's new timepiece raises the bar for size-zero tech

Piaget has revealed the Altiplano 900P, the thinnest mechanical ever made.

Measuring in at a mind boggling 3.65mm thin, it features a full mechanical movement, parts of which can be seen ticking away on the watch face itself. That means no batteries, but understandably it's not self-winding - you'll need to spin the crown yourself every 48 hours to keep it ticking.

The Verge points out that technically speaking, the 0.80mm thin Central Standard Timing CST-01 watch is thinner, but it's an e-ink watch with no mechanical movements at all, so it doesn't count.

There's thin. And then there's this

Available in 18-karat gold with a back alligator strap, the Altiplano can be yours for between US$20,000-$30,000 (S$25,000-$37,600)

We'll take two. You know, one for each wrist.
