In an unprecedented move, luxury Swiss replica watch brand Piaget unveils its first all-steel watch collection, the Piaget Polo S. Based on the much-loved, iconic Piaget Polo replica watch that was first released in 1979, the new timepiece is geared for today’s generation of what Piaget is calling “game changers.”
While Piaget Replica introduced a few stainless steel replica watches 15 years ago as part of its short-lived Upstream collection – this Piaget Polo S marks the first complete collection of only steel watches. The five steel timepieces that comprise the Piaget Polo S represent a new opening price point for the brand’s watches ($9,350-$12,400), they nonetheless adhere to strict quality standards – not the least of which is the inclusion of in-house-made automatic movements.
The collection includes both three-hand automatics with date indication, powered by the 1110P movement, and chronographs, powered by the automatic Piaget 1160P movement. Both of these calibers are new and were developed especially for the Piaget Polo S timepieces. The finely finished automatic movements are visible via a sapphire caseback.
The aesthetics of the new Piaget Polo S are very distinctive, with a cushion-shaped dial within a 42mm round case. For those who know the brand, the round shape embodies the distinctive Piaget Polo look, while the cushion-shaped inner dial may also be a nod to the brand’s coveted Emperador line. The automatic Piaget S is available with a striking blue, silvered or slate-gray dial with horizontal line motif. The Replica Piaget Polo S Chronograph is available with a silver or blue dial.
Each watch features a hand-assembled stainless steel bracelet with alternating polished and satin-finished links that integrate into the case for smooth appeal and fit — designed so the luxury replica watch can easily transition from day to night.
To represent the real-life “game changers” — people the brand believes are ready to “rewrite the rules” — Piaget has named eight men as “Friends of the brand” who will wear the new steel timepieces. Among them: Ryan Reynolds, actor and producer; Malcolm Borwick, polo player; Joel Dicker, novelist; David Goffin, tennis player; Jean- Francois Piege, chef; Michael B. Jordan, actor. In fact, Michael B. Jordan has been to the Piaget factory and was in attendance tonight, along with Ryan Reynolds, at the Piaget Polo S replica watch launch in New York.
