Introducing the Piaget Polo 79

In 1979, Piaget revealed a watch that would come to define the spirit of the 1980s, which is coming back to life today for the 150th anniversary of the Maison. Share

The Piaget Polo 79 marks a significant moment in the luxury watch landscape, paying tribute to the original Piaget Polo introduced in 1979. This reimagined edition captures the essence of its predecessor while embracing modern sophistication, offering a nod to the 1980s with a contemporary twist, perfectly timed for Piaget’s 150th-anniversary celebration.

Introducing the Piaget Polo 79

The Polo 79 showcases a case and bracelet entirely crafted in 18K yellow gold, a choice that harks back to the model’s origins but is updated to resonate with today’s luxury watch enthusiasts. The watch’s size has been thoughtfully adjusted to a 38mm diameter, slightly larger than the original, to suit contemporary preferences without compromising the iconic design ethos of its lineage. The essence of the watch, with its tonneau-shaped, lugless case and the signature horizontal gadroon motif, remains faithful to the Polo’s heritage, providing a seamless blend of elegance and robustness​.

At the heart of the Polo 79’s allure is the in-house 1200P1 automatic microrotor movement, demonstrating Piaget’s mastery of ultra-thin calibres. This movement, visible through the sapphire display caseback, is not only a marvel of engineering but also beautifully finished, featuring circular Côtes de Genève, perlage, and blued screws​​. The choice of a mechanical movement over the original quartz reflects a commitment to the high standards expected by modern collectors​​.

Introducing the Piaget Polo 79

Piaget has focused on the technical prowess of the Polo 79 while balancing wearability and aesthetic appeal. The integrated bracelet, a significant feature of the watch, is meticulously crafted in solid 18K yellow gold, ensuring a continuous flow from the case through the bracelet, enhancing the watch’s luxurious appeal​​.

This design approach reinforces the Polo 79 as a piece of fine jewelry as much as a timekeeper, capable of making a bold statement on any wrist. The Polo 79’s limited production and its price point underscore its exclusivity, making it a coveted piece for collectors and aficionados alike​​​​.
