Piaget Launches All New Polo His & Hers – Perfect For Couples Who Love Luxury

by Matt Clymo

Piaget has unveiled their new His and Hers Polo pieces at Watches & Wonders 2024 in a tribute to the original from 1979

With this year being Piaget’s 150th Birthday and with this, the 45th Anniversary of the Piaget Polo, it is not surprising that the Maison have turned their attention to the iconic piece Yves Piaget created back in 1979 that re-defined sports luxury. We covered the launch of the Polo 79 earlier in the year, which was a faithful modern recreation of the piece that turned heads in 1979, and we also went Hands On with the Polo Date just after this to see what the fuss was really all about. Now for Watches & Wonders 2024, Piaget has brought out new “His” and “Hers” pieces that go wonderfully together or on their own in their own right.

The new Piaget Polo His & Hers – limited to 300 pieces each

For this release, Piaget has focused on blending the iconic cues from the 1979 Polo with the modern stylistic cues from the current generation Polo Date and given them a his and hers look thanks to the size and style of each. The “His” is in the standard 42mm case that’s just over 9mm thick and for “Her” a more svelt 36mm version at 8.8mm thick with a diamond set bezel featuring 60 diamonds and diamond set indices featuring another 31 brilliant cut diamonds.

The “His” variant takes on the standard dimensions of the current Piaget Polo Date as mentioned before, however, Piaget has designed this piece to be a little more subtle than the current colourways, and in addition, takes design cues from the iconic 1979 watch (as does “Hers”). The dial is a lush golden tone with the iconic gadroons across the dial, an ode to the Polo from 1979 that heavily featured the gadroons across the dial, bleeding into the case and bracelet.

The dial of each piece is where the magic happens. Compared to the smaller gadroon style lines on the standard Polo Dates, for these limited edition pieces, Piaget has given the dial the more traditional wider style gadroons, which appeared on the original. Applied to the dial are Super-LumiNova filled indices on the 42mm, and brilliant cut diamond set indices on the 36mm version. Offsetting this is the rose gold coloured hands providing a nice contrast and the seconds hand featuring a “150” counterweight where the Piaget “P” would normally be.

Both pieces are equipped with a rubber strap – a chocolate brown on the 42mm and a lighter tan-coloured strap on the 36mm. This is the first time a rubber strap is featured on the smaller 36mm Polo which previously was only offered on a leather strap. Having had the Piaget Polo Date for a road test at Watch Advice HQ, we can say that these rubber straps are extremely comfortable and easy to wear.

Piaget has equipped these pieces with their in-house movements. The 42 mm is powered by the Manufacture self-winding mechanical movement 1110P and the 36 mm by the 500P1 movement. Both these movements are seen through the display caseback and feature the Engraved Piaget Coat of Arms on oscillating weight and on the rest of the movement circular Côtes de Genève and blue-fired screws. This gives the watches a decent 50-hour power reserve in the larger 42mm and 40 hours in the 36mm version.

Our Thoughts

Having worn the 42mm Polo Date for a period of time, and Mario could attest to this, these are very easy-wearing, comfortable watches. The thickness (or lack of) makes them sit nice on the wrist and the rubber strap is soft and molds around the wrist. However, the straps are on the longer side, so our recommendation is to get them in a smaller size if you don’t have large wrists. I wore it on the second last hole, and I’ve 17.5cm wrists if that is an indication.

Both His and Hers Polo Dates are a great way to celebrate a Piaget icon, and unlike other brands, they’ve not designed super expensive collector pieces (comparatively speaking) that buck the trend of their standard catalogue piece pricing. So on that note, well done Piaget.
