PIAGET GIVES ITS POLO THE PERPETUAL TREATMENT
The iconic Piaget Polo reaches unprecedented heights in 2023 with the Piaget Polo Perpetual Calendar Ultra-thin powered by the 1255P calibre. This stunning new model showcases one of watchmaking’s most emblematic complications, evocatively complemented by a moonphase display.
Worn by exceptional figures including Nancy Reagan, Roger Moore, Andy Warhol and Bjorn Borg, this stand-out-from-the-crowd unisex icon in gold or steel radiates a singular character and an unmistakable aura of distinction that resonates with the Piaget spirit of shared joy, sophistication and extravaganza.
The emblematic Perpetual Calendar
Humankind’s longstanding fascination with the universe meant that the development of time measurement called on natural references relating to the movement. The iconic Piaget Polo collection now welcomes for the first time a mechanical perpetual calendar – an emblematic complication in which Piaget has developed considerable expertise already deployed in some of its other watch lines.
Trailblazing ultra-thin horology
Piaget has built its reputation first in the development and manufacturing of ultra-thin components and then in the development of ultra-thin movements. Combining watchmaking prowess, high-precision design and daring creativity, the in-house 12P movement launched in 1960 was the thinnest in the world because it drew on the idea of using a micro-rotor to ensure its ultra-thinness. Fifty years later, this calibre in turn gave rise to the new generation of 1200P calibres.
The Piaget Polo Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin features a dark emerald-green dial with a gadroon pattern and three subdials for the date, month (along with leap-year indication) and weekday at 9, 12 and 3 o’clock, along with the moonphase indication at 6 o’clock. True to Piaget tradition, the subdials incorporate several finishes, adding visual richness as the light plays across them, along with Super-Luminova® indexes.
The quintessential encounter between haute horlogerie and everyday wearability, the Piaget Polo slips seamlessly from day to night, public to private. Always fitting, never blending, it offers a contemporary narrative for the boldest, most versatile identities. The new Piaget Polo continues to epitomise the joyful mix of everyday wearability, sophistication and extravagance that has forged its renown.
