Back in 1979, Piaget revealed a watch that would come to define the spirit of the 1980s and change the lifestyle of the Maison’s clients. The answer to that ‘demand’ then was a watch known simply as ‘Piaget Polo’. Today, it is coming back to life for the 150th anniversary of the Maison as Piaget Polo’79 and is still keeping with the current Zeitgeist and Piaget Society. Forty-five years after its first appearance, this historically significant timepiece is reborn by returning to the purest expression of the original design, albeit with a few subtle updates. In line with current tastes, the quartz caliber has been eschewed in favor of the ultra-thin 1200P1 in-house self-winding caliber that can be admired through the crystal back of a case that has been slightly enlarged to 38mm. Otherwise, it is the same dazzling masterpiece executed entirely in 18-carat gold.
As revolutionary as chic since the eighties, this marvel continues to steal the show with every appearance.
