Piaget has just given an update to one of the longstanding lines, the Piaget Polo. This watch has a special place in Piaget’s history, as when it was released in 1979, it was the first model to have a name. The Piaget Polo throughout the years has become synonymous with the glamourous art of living.
When the model was first released in the 1970s, the people at the time were moving away from the outdated design codes and looking for sportier yet elegant models. The Piaget Polo fit this perfectly and it didn’t take long before the celebrities like Andy Warhol, Roger Moore, and celebrity couple Bjorn Borg and his wife Mariana were spotted donning these models.
The Piaget Polo, while being elegant is also a fun summer-inspired watch. Its made to be worn for occasions that bring happiness into one’s life, social gatherings, formal events and even just hanging out with friends. The mix of luxury yet sportiness gives it a lot of versatility in where it can be worn.
This latest Piaget Polo Date 36mm takes design cues from the historic collection and gives it a more modern touch. All the character traits that the Piaget Polo is known for, such as style, casual elegance, smooth curves, and simplistic view are all retained. What this model is well known for is the shape in shape design; the round bezel with a cushioned shaped dial.
Piaget is offering this latest Polo Date 36mm in 6 different variants. Firstly we get two refined models in stainless steel that come with matching steel bracelets and a combination of satin-finish and polished details. With these two models, one features a Piaget Blue dial (reference G0A46018) which is deep and beautiful. This blue dial model has diamond-set gold indexes which give it a gorgeous sparkle amongst the blue. The second model is a pure white dial with a diamond-set bezel (reference G0A46019), that also has diamond-set gold hour indexes.
The lineup also features two rose gold models, with diamond-set bezel and diamond-set hour indexes on both. The difference between the two models is that one features a slate grey alligator strap (reference G0A46023) while the other has a full gold rose gold bracelet (reference G0A46020).
The last two models being released are purely for lovers of gemstones. These two models are covered in gems, from the dial to the case. One model features a dark blue alligator strap (reference G0A46024) to give it a bit of colour. However, if you want the full package, the second model has a bracelet that is fully paved with gems as well (reference G0A46022).
The movement used inside is the Piaget Calibre 501P. This slim-self winding movement has a frequency of 21, 600 VpH and gives a power reserve of approximately 43 hours. All the models in this Polo lineup feature an open case back which allows the viewer to see the grey colour oscillating weight that is engraved with the Maisons logo.
The Piaget Polo has always been about mixing luxury with fashionable style, and this latest lineup of Polo models lives up to this philosophy.
