Following the success of the Piaget Polo Date watch draped in a black robe, which was launched at the Watches and Wonders 2022 edition, this essential sport chic watch is now going green. Far from being a plain choice, this dark emerald tone turns out as an unexpected electric dial that moves from subtle hues to a mesmerizing and changing color immediately catching the eye. More than a trend, this Piaget Polo shines a new light on the Polo shape-in-shape signature curves and pays homage to the original polo fields and vibrant lawns of West Palm Beach in Florida, where the Maison made the Piaget Polo World Cup turn into the Piaget World Cup. When Piaget created the Piaget Polo back in 1979, the Maison wanted to create a sophisticated watch for everyday life, a watch that would incorporate all the Piaget design codes that are synonymous with style, casual elegance and freedom. On this piece, the iconic gadroons of the Piaget Polo are thickened to blend perfectly with the textured rubber interchangeable bracelet. A new desirable contrast for a more daring look that connects with the very DNA of the collection. The Piaget Polo is an ode to the charismatics, to the trendsetters, the risk-takers, the celebration makers, who live their life to the fullest.
While watches with stone dials become en-vogue again and are adopted by more and more brands, others can look back at a history in this field that spans several decades. Piaget had an extensive collection of watches with stone dials in the 1950s, and this tradition has really set into the brand’s DNA. The latest version of the Polo Perpetual Calender with blue obsidian dial is, therefore, a very welcome addition to the line-up of Piaget’s sportiest sibling.
The new timepiece, crafted in stainless steel is powered by the brand’s 1255P Caliber and boasts a moonphase display along with day, date, year and leap year – accurate to the year 2100 when all perpetual calendars will need a slight adjustment on March 1 because that year we will skip the scheduled leap year in order to have solar time and calendar time align.
