If you know anything about Piaget, you know they are a serious and true manufacture with some notable achievements. From the ultra-thin 9P movement developed in 1957, to being one of the first major Swiss houses to use the Beta-21 movement, to their more recent ultra-slim introductions, they have a small but dedicated following among serious watch lovers.
The Polo has continued to be a part of Piaget’s collection, but with little fanfare. Today, that changes. Say hello to the Piaget Polo S (the S stands for steel, the style of the watch, and that it is a signature of the brand). The new and improved version of the Polo is different in many ways, all while maintaining the same sporty elegance that was so loved in the first version.
The time-only version is powered by a newly developed in-house movement, the automatic caliber 1110P. It is 9.4 mm thick and features a date at 6 o’clock with center seconds. Piaget has always been ahead of the trends with their movements, and it is nice to see that they continue to create new movements for their new watches, like the Polo S.
The Polo S Automatic retails for $9,350 and the Polo S Chronograph retails for $12,400. This is a somewhat disruptive price for a watch of this caliber, and it’s clear the Polo S marks a big push into the younger segment for the traditional Swiss brand.
A fantastic brand that gives to the world, not just beauty but also a masterpiece for people to appreciate.
The unique and majestic timipiece that will conquer the world, and you? What do you think?
