The luxury Swiss watch brand Piaget unveils its first all-steel watch collection, the Piaget Polo S. The new line of watches is based on the iconic Piaget Polo watch that was first released in 1979. The Piaget Polos S collection is comprised of a trio of three-handers and two chronographs which come exclusively on a steel bracelet with a fold over clasp and brightly polished outer links with satin finished center elements.
The timepieces in the Piaget Polo S collection were unveiled at an event in New York City on July 14. The watches feature “shape within a shape” design which is accentuated by a cushion-shaped dial opening with a classically round 42-mm case. All have sapphire exhibition casebacks to showcase the in-house, automatic movements, both of which were developed exclusively for an all-steel line.
The trio of three-hand timekeepers with date windows at 6 o’clock come in a range of silvered, blue, and slate gray colors. The three-hand Piaget Polo S boasts a special Piaget’s Caliber 1110P, which is equipped with a slate-gray-colored winding rotor. Its case is 9.4 mm thick and water-resistant to 100 meters. The applied hour indices on the dials are given Super-LumiNova treatment. The the three-hander Piaget Polo S will set you back $9,350.
The 42 mm case of Polo S Chronograph is 11.2 mm thick. The timepiece is offered with silvered or blue dial and uses the 1160P caliber offering a 12-hour total measure with central seconds and a 30-minute register at three. Like the three automatics, both chronographs have Super-LumiNova on the hour appliques and hour and minute hands. The Polo S chronograph is priced at $12,400.
