S for steel, but also S for style. Piaget makes a big impact with an elegant chronograph at home in town or in the gym.
If Piaget stands out in the world of elegant, extra-flat men’s watches, then with the new Polo S collection the watchmakers also show they can make models in a very contemporary style and with a sports look. Among them, the Polo S Black chronograph has all the features to attract lovers of beautiful watchmaking. Exit the original design on round or square gold watches from the late 1970s – Piaget takes up the idea of a cushion-shaped dial inside a round, 42mm-wide steel case, resulting in a watch with an elegant outline. The visual effect is enhanced by the appropriate presence of a black bezel coated in ADLC.
The Polo S features a highly attractive horizontal black guilloché dial, where dauphine hour and minute hands and a seconds hand with a red dot move around luminous indices. Two bicompax counters display short-time measurements. There is a date counter is at 6 o’clock. All these functions are driven by a self-winding mechanical movement, the Piaget 1160P, which is revealed through the sapphire case back. This manufacture calibre provides the watch with 50 hours of power reserve.
The Polos S Black chronograph, produced in a limited edition of 888 pieces, is worn with a black rubber strap. It also comes with a second black calfskin strap. The result? It can adorn your wrist in any situation, when you are wearing a made-to-measure suit at a business meeting or you’re hanging out with friends at the weekend.
