Tout en finesse !
True style in themselves, flat and extra-flat watches are an opportunity for several watchmakers to demonstrate their expertise in housing parts and mechanisms!

The brand that astounds watchmaking experts with its flat watches presents its latest creation, the Polo Perpétuelle Extraleganza. This 8.65 mm-thick timepiece features a perpetual calendar and moon phase display. A stunning piece with an emerald green dial!
Chopard’s Alpine Eagle 41 XPS is a flat timepiece measuring barely 8 mm thick. A self-winding L.U.C calibre chronometer-certified watch with small seconds. Its galvanized “Monte Rosa Pink” dial adds the finishing touch.

This large-scale, 7.3 mm-thick version of the Santos-Dumont features gilded Roman numerals, sword-shaped gilded steel hands and a beaded crown set with a synthetic blue cabochon-shaped spinel.
The Octo Finissimo Skeleton 8-day watch plays on the contrasts between its 40 mm casing in 18-carat rose gold and the transparency of its dial, revealing its inner workings and power reserve. This hand-wound watch measures just 5.95 mm.
