Introducing the Piaget Polo S, an Entry-Level Sports Watch That Looks Familiar…

Priced under US$10,000, the Polo S is Piaget's salvo in the accessible-luxury price segment that's all the rage now.

The original Piaget Polo introduced in 1979 was a 1980s status symbol of sorts, typically yellow gold and distinguished by the horizontal bars across the dial and bracelet, the sort of watch you might have seen on a millionaire in Marbella. That look is somewhat retro now, even after several facelifts. So the new Polo S sports a completely different style, characterised by a cushion-shaped dial inside a roundish case – a look that might be somewhat familiar.

Being the new entry-level watch in Piaget’s line-up, the Polo S is stainless steel and 42mm in diameter. Two models are available – both are the same size – an automatic with date, as well as a chronograph. Several dial colours are available, but all have the same stamped horizontal pinstripe guilloche.

The automatic is powered by the calibre 1110P, while inside the chronograph is the calibre 1160P. Both are in-house automatic movements, being based on the existing calibres 800P and 880P respectively. Piaget has yet to provide extra details, but it’s certain that the movements inside the Polo S are dialled down in terms of extraneous decoration in order to accommodate the price.

The Polo S automatic costs US$9350 or S$15,500, while the chronograph is priced at US$12,400 or S$20,600. It will be available from Piaget boutiques and retailers starting September 2016.
