Piaget reveals a fully skeletonised version of its celebrated Piaget Polo, the groundbreaking luxury sports watch created by Piaget in 1979.
Renowned for creating exceptionally slim mechanisms, Piaget has developed calibres that were both exquisitely thin and meticulously skeletonised, with the first Piaget skeleton watches made during the 1970s. As with many of the Maison’s creations, they immediately attracted a high-profile following, with one of the most noted early adopters the jazz trumpet legend: Miles Davis. Fittingly for a man known for his playing’s intricacy and innovation, a gold Piaget skeleton could often be seen on his wrist during major performances.
The New Piaget Polo Skeleton
The Piaget Polo Skeleton sports a bold and unmistakable look with its curved case surmounted by a round bezel, a cushion-shaped dial opening and slim profile. At the same time, the new evolution brings a depth of elegance, usability and more comfort. Lighter but not lesser, the 42mm steel-cased sports watch measures just 6.5mm thick with a wafer-thin 2.4mm Piaget 1200S self-winding skeleton movement.
Despite the pared-down, intricate 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.
A New Dimension
Naturally, the Piaget Polo Skeleton brings out the best of both form and functions. The sleek, thin model features a signature polished and satin-finished ‘H’ design integrated bracelet—revised to provide an interchangeable function that enables it to be swapped effortlessly for the additional interchangeable leather strap supplied with each watch. The result is a versatility that lends an extra dimension to the Piaget Polo Skeleton’s already distinctive character.
The skeletonised movement and the hands themselves have also been pared-down for ultimate transparency. Meanwhile, a clear sapphire crystal case back allows the meticulously finished and highly detailed movement to be seen and appreciated from both sides of the watch. The new Piaget Polo Skeleton is available in two highly individual designs, at the price of 975,000 THB in both versions: the first with a Piaget Blue PVD, the second in a slate grey finish. In each version, the famous Piaget Polo case has been reduced to a mere 6.5mm thick (almost 3mm slimmer).
