The 608P tourbillon relatif movement is built upon the technical specifications and carriage of the 600P tourbillon movement. Its innovation lies in the carriage of the flying tourbillon which is suspended at the tip of the minutes hand and seems detached from the basic mechanism which drives it. The visual effect it produces is accentuated by the presence of the stylized "P" of Piaget.

The asymmetry of the design required meticulous adjustments in order to respect the balance of the whole movement. The hours are displayed by a central disc, while the tourbillon carriage, positioned on the minutes hand, rotates on its own axis. The three bridges of the tourbillon carriage are crafted in titanium. Composed of 42 elements, the carriage -which rotates on its own axis once per minute in addition to the rotation around the dial every hour -weighs only 0.2 grams!

The mainplate is circular-grained, its bridges beveled and hand-drawn. The circular Côtes de Genève and blued screws round off the movement.
