GENEVA – At the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) luxury watch fair in Geneva last week, Piaget revealed an exquisite collection of high jewelry, and both complicated and gem-embellished timepieces. In addition, it celebrated a special anniversary: 30 years of its most identifiable watch design, the Polo.
To mark the occasion, Piaget is introducing its first collection of titanium sport watches, named the Piaget Polo FortyFive. (The number represents both the diameter of the case in mm and the average length of a polo match in minutes.)
The Polo FortyFive is available in two models, each offering a silver or black dial. The Automatic version displays a large date at the six o’clock position, has a 72-hour power reserve, is water-resistant to 100 meters and comes on a steel bracelet that is finely adjustable to “summer” and “winter” sizes for the wearer.
The Chronograph version displays a small seconds subdial at the six o’clock position, a 24-hour indicator at the nine o’clock position, and flyback chronograph function at three o’clock. It has a 50-hour power reserve and is also available on an adjustable steel bracelet.
Pricing will start at $11,900.
