Not every year, not even every decade, does a watch become an icon of its generation and an expression of the spirit of its time. In 1979, however, Piaget created just such a timepiece with the Piaget Polo.
Although recognized throughout the world, the Piaget Polo has always had a particular association with New York. It was here in 1985 that the Piaget polo team celebrated the watch by riding down Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue. Thus, there could be no greater city or place for Piaget to celebrate the legacy of the original Piaget Polo with the launch of a new watch, for a new generation.
The rules rewritten
It takes its name from the elegant and demanding sport of polo. It is infused with the ethos of Piaget Society that was founded on the lasting friendships the brand has formed in the world of music, film, art and sports. It expresses the grammar of shapes that is at the heart of the Piaget DNA. And yet, the Piaget Polo S is the watch for those who challenge conventions. Because, on this exceptional occasion, Piaget has housed an automatic precision movement in a watch of stainless steel.
Featuring an ingenious shape-within-shape that is Piaget’s distinctive hallmark, the Piaget Polo S displays the unique association of a cushion-shaped dial within a round 42mm case. Designed by Piaget, its automatic movement discreetly reveals its beauty through a sapphire case-back. A bracelet of meticulously hand-assembled links alternatingly polished and with a satin finish, completes the experience. The result? A watch that – by day or by night, at work or at play – speaks to and for a new generation.
Five Watches, One Philosophy
The collection is composed of the automatic Piaget Polo S, equipped with the 1110P movement, and the Piaget Polo S Chronograph, equipped with the 1160P movement. Both of these movements have been developed specially for the Piaget Polo S. The automatic Piaget Polo S is available with a blue, silvered or slate-gray dial, while the Piaget Polo S Chronograph is available with a silvered or blue dial.
The Game Changers of Piaget: Nine men, One Spirit
Piaget created the Piaget Polo S for a new generation: a generation of game changers. Like the Piaget Polo S, these men are ready to rewrite the rules. By choosing Piaget for a steel watch, they show with elegance and distinction that they play a different game.
Around the world, in recognition of their exceptional talent, Piaget has selected eight such men to wear the Piaget Polo S and to be a Friend of the Maison for their country. These men are not followers. They are driven by passion to make their dreams come true, and impact their world differently. Each a Game Changer in his own profession and an influencer with digital power, they have proved in life and through their careers that they truly embody the spirit and ethos of this unique watch.
