Piaget presents a fully skeletonised version of its celebrated Polo, its luxury sports watch created by Piaget in 1979. In order to successfully develop the Piaget Polo Skeleton, Piaget’s designers and engineers had to consider the key aspects of the Piaget Polo that have made it instantly recognizable – notably its curved case surmounted by a round bezel, its cushionshaped dial opening and its slim profile. But perfecting the Polo Skeleton required a case to be created that was a remarkable 30 percent thinner than existing versions, and an evolution of the Piaget 1200S self-winding skeleton movement powered by an off-centre micro rotor engraved with Piaget coat of arms. The result? A 42mm steel-cased ports watch measuring just 6.5mm thick and powered by Piaget’s 1200S1 self-winding, manufacture movement – entirely developed and produced in-house – which is a wafer-like 2.4mm thin.
Despite the intricate appearance of the pared- down components, the Polo Skeleton remains just as robust, reliable and practical as the other models, featuring 44 hours of power reserve and water resistance down to three atmospheres. Additionally, the polished and satin-finished ‘H’ design integrated bracelet that has become synonymous with the Piaget Polo has also been revised in order to provide an interchangeable function. This enables it to be swapped effortlessly for the additional interchangeable leather strap supplied with each watch, adding to its versatility and lending an extra dimension to the Piaget Polo Skeleton’s already distinctive character. The new Piaget Polo Skeleton is available in two highly individual designs – the first with a movement in Piaget Blue PVD, the second in a slate gray finish.
