Luxury jewelry and watch maker Piaget recently unveiled a new design, the 'Altiplano Ultimate Concept.' The innovative timepiece holds the title of the "thinnest mechanical watch in the world," due to its sleek build that measures just 2mm in width. Despite being so slender, the Altiplano Ultimate Concept has all the features that a traditional mechanical watch has.

As the design is just a concept creation, it won't be available for purchase anytime soon, however its capabilities reveal that there's room in the market for further innovation. As Highsnobiety reports, this shows that a widespread production of the concept watch could be in the works, especially given the fact that it beats out its competitor, the 'Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra-Thin Squelette,' "by a whole 1.6mm."
