The Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève 2020, watchmaking's Oscars, is over, and the top winner is a watch you probably know well by now from the pages of Gear Patrol.
It's Piaget's Altiplano Ultimate Concept, the world's thinnest mechanical watch, and one of the coolest innovations of the past few years. (The watch debuted in concept form in 2018, but its official production run was only announced this year.) An insanely cool, forward-thinking and handsome creation, the AUC is available in over 10,000 configurations and comes with an eye-watering price tag (supposedly $400k+) that's going to make it tough to spot one in the wild.
We personally couldn't think of a watch more unique or more deserving of this honor. To read our full coverage of AUC, click here.
