An elegant and sophisticated companion for every occasion.
The Piaget Polo watch is an accolade of the Piaget philosophy – living on the sunny side of life. Uniting a lifestyle of elegantly polished effervescent, the Piaget Polo shines in its exquisite movements, sophisticated complications and its vivid colours, creating a fashionable style and love for spending quality time together with friends – true to the Piaget Society.
The Origins of the Piaget Polo
For the first time in Piaget history, the Maison officially names one of its models – Piaget Polo, echoing the eponymous jet-set sport and glamourous art of living. This took place in 1979, where the fashion scene sprang into a newer, sportier, and more relaxed form of elegance. While glamour was the leitmotif of the era, it was expressed in ways that defied the norms governing traditional luxury. Donned on the wrist of the American Pop Art Movement leader, the Piaget Polo has accompanied Andy Warhol on many emprises at Studio 54. Over the years, the chic allure of the Piaget Polo caught the eyes of many, including famed thespian Roger Moore, and celebrity couple Bjorn Borg and Mariana Simionescu.
Evolution of the Polo Style
The design of the Piaget Polo has always encapsulated the mood of the moment, bringing it its iconic status. In the modernistic world, the aesthetic of the Piaget Polo Date in 36mm takes a fresh reinterpretation of the spirit of this historic collection. Upon its creation in 1979, the Maison envisioned a sophisticated, quotidian watch that is an embodiment of all Piaget design codes, catalyzing the semblance of style, casual elegance, and freedom.
The new Piaget Polo Date 36mm has been finetuned to today’s times, wants to do things differently, and enhance the essentials of fine watchmaking and elegance.
The Stylistic Codes of the Piaget Polo
The Piaget Polo Date 36mm retains the classic shape-in- shape design with a round bezel and cushion shaped dial of its predecessor, and thanks to the Maison’s slim self-winding Calibre 500P1, this stunning timepiece has an elegant and refined profile that perfectly suits this smaller model.
The movement comes with a slate grey coloured oscillating weight that can be admired through a sapphire caseback. Its graphic dial features a horizontal guilloché pattern, Dauphine and skeleton hands, a date at six o’clock, and diamond- set indexes. The majority of the models come with Piaget’s interchangeable strap system and are also available with a steel or gold bracelet that features alternating polished and satin-finished H-design links that are perfectly integrated into the case.
An Array of Exquisite Models to Choose From
Piaget unveils two refined 36mm models in stainless steel with matching steel bracelets and a combination of polished and satin-finished details. One comes with a gorgeous deep Piaget blue dial and sparkling diamond-set gold indexes, while the other model features a pure white dial with a radiant diamond-set bezel that is paired with diamond-set gold indexes.
Two exquisite rose gold models sparkle with diamonds and snow-white dials with either a slate grey alligator strap or a full gold rose gold bracelet.
For lovers of gem setting, Piaget presents two fully-paved models, one of which with a dark blue alligator strap and the other on a fully-paved diamond bracelet.
The Piaget Polo Date 36mm rekindles the spirit of the collection in a new edition that is in perfect harmony with the needs and tastes of today, writing a new chapter in this fabulous polo story.
