The iconic Piaget Polo collection was launched in 1979. Easily distinguishable by the seamless integration of case and strap, set off by the interplay of polished godrons and satin-brushed surfaces, the Polo now features a new case with a more pronounced curve. This improved design draws its inspiration from the sleek, technical style of the Polo FortyFive line launched in 2009. Crafted from 18ct pink gold, the four men’s watches presented this Spring all marry the curve of the wearer’s wrist for total comfort. They are enhanced by a supple alligator leather strap fitted with a new pin buckle in 18ct pink gold.
The case diameter is still 43mm and the basic design codes of the Polo collection have been preserved. The distinguishing features included an integrated case and strap, interplay between polished and satin-brushed surfaces, domed sapphire crystal and bezel, and an exquisite dial with Arabic numerals or gold applique indexes. Not to mention an expert level of finish and, of course, mechanical movement designed, developed and produced entirely at the Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Piaget.
The 880P movement operates the new Piaget Polo Chronographe, available in two versions: one in 18ct pink gold, the other featuring a bezel set with 42 brilliant-cut diamonds (1.0 carat). This extra-flat self-winding movement with a vertical coupling clutch has a range of complex features, including a flyback function, calendar and second time zone in 24-hour format, while its two barrels guarantee a 50-hour power reserve in chronograph-activation mode.
The new automatic Piaget Polo is also available with an optional bezel set with 42 brilliant-cut diamonds (1.0 carat). Crafted in 18ct pink gold, the watch is equipped with the 800P movement with automatic self-winding, showing the hour, minutes, seconds and date.
The Piaget Polo FortyFive Lady line enhanced with two new gemset models
Designed in 2010 in the same sporting chic spirit as its masculine counterpart, the Polo FortyFive Lady offers the sleek elegance of a lady’s watch with plenty of character. Showcasing the Manufacture Piaget’s expertise as a jeweller, the two new creations from the Polo FortyFive Lady line feature a dial paved with 386 brilliant-cut diamonds (1.5 carats), mirrored in the bezel set with 50 diamonds (0.7 carat). Feminine and exquisite, these two pieces crafted in 18ct white gold and 18ct pink gold, respectively, are presented on an alligator leather strap.
Operated by the 690P quartz movement manufactured by Piaget and treading the line between timepiece and jewellery, these strikingly elegant items reflect the design codes of the Polo FortyFive line – a historic model redesigned by Piaget.
