At great expense I'm sure, Piaget released a newly designed manufacture flyback chronograph movement this year - the 880P. A review can be read in December's Watch Time mazagine.
Three features jump out at me as odd, even regressive:
1. the balance wheel features "decorative" screws which are not required with its Triovis fine regulating system.
2. the stopwatch function is limited to 30 minutes elapsed time, with no hour counter. The 3rd subsidiary dial displays a second time zone.
3. the movement height of 5.6mm is still slightly taller than the evergreen Piguet F185 at 5.5mm
I wonder what drove Piaget to spec this movement's loss of functionality and lack of design progress? Let's hope it doesn't catch on!
