It’s another year and another tone for Piaget’s energetic Polo S. After the more grave tones of 2017’s Black ADLC/Rubber Limited Editions , Piaget is livening things up with a green dial and complementary dim green croc leather lash. It’s a strong decision however one that truly appears to work for this model. I don’t know it will be sufficient to prevail upon the Polo S’ more vocal pundits yet you never know.
Launched in 2016, the Polo S offers a standard three-hand setup with a date window simply over 6 o’clock. Think of it as Piaget’s interpretation of the extravagance sports watch in steel. In 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 considerations on it here .)
Putting aside all that, notwithstanding, one needs to recognize that the Piaget Polo S is a quite decent watch. The 42mm steel case blends a round bezel in with a pad molded dial and is very unmistakable on the wrist. The previously mentioned bezel has a brushed completion, which differentiates charmingly against the cleaned surfaces of the case, which itself is sensibly slim at 9.4mm.
This new form is especially attractive gratitude to its verdant dial complete with level example. It’s a pleasant complement to the other models effectively in the line-up, which include more moderate dial colors like blue, silver and anthracite. Similarly as with those dials, this one highlights applied lists and dauphine-molded hands, all treated with SuperLuminova. This is an extravagance sports watch after all.
Inside is a similar Piaget self-winding type 1110P, beating at 4Hz and offering a force save of 50 hours. It depends on the Piaget 800P Caliber and has been enriched with roundabout Geneva Stripes, blued screws, cleaned inclines, and the Piaget crest engraved on the record dark shaded gold wavering weight. Which is all noticeable through the sapphire caseback.
Limited to 500 pieces, this new Piaget Polo S with green dial will be accessible on a green croc leather lash with collapsing lock in steel. Cost to be affirmed yet anticipate that it should be in-accordance with past models, which means EUR 8,800. More subtleties at piaget.com .
