It’s another year and another tone for Piaget’s sporty Polo S. After the more somber tones of 2017’s Black ADLC/Rubber Limited Editions , Piaget is livening things up with a green dial and complementary dim green crocodile calfskin strap. It’s a striking decision yet one that truly seems to work for this model. I’m not sure it will be sufficient to prevail upon the Polo S’ more vocal critics yet you never know.
Launched in 2016, the Polo S offers a standard three-hand arrangement with a date window just over 6 o’clock. Consider it Piaget’s interpretation of the extravagance sports watch in steel. As a matter of fact that take is fundamentally the same as that of some other notable brands/models, however that story has just been told commonly previously. (You can peruse our thoughts on it here .)
Putting aside all that, notwithstanding, one has to recognize that the Piaget Polo S is a really decent watch. The 42mm steel case mixes a round bezel with a cushion-shaped dial and is very distinctive on the wrist. The previously mentioned bezel has a brushed finish, which contrasts pleasantly against the polished surfaces of the case, which itself is reasonably slim at 9.4mm.
This new version is especially attractive thanks to its verdant dial complete with even example. It’s a pleasant complement to different models effectively in the line-up, which include more conservative dial colors like blue, silver and anthracite. As with those dials, this one features applied indexes and dauphine-shaped hands, all treated with SuperLuminova. This is an extravagance sports watch after all.
Inside is simply the same Piaget winding type 1110P, beating at 4Hz and offering a force reserve of 50 hours. It’s based on the Piaget 800P Caliber and has been enhanced with roundabout Geneva Stripes, blued screws, polished bevels, and the Piaget escutcheon engraved on the slate dim hued gold oscillating weight. Which is all visible through the sapphire caseback.
Limited to 500 pieces, this new Piaget Polo S with green dial will be accessible on a green crocodile calfskin strap with collapsing lock in steel. Cost to be affirmed however anticipate that it should be in-accordance with previous models, which means EUR 8,800. More details at piaget.com .
