Although Piaget’s Polo was originally a symbol in gold, its contemporary line is dressed in stainless steel to appeal to modern customers. However, one of the models from their most recent line that combines gold with vivid hues truly drew our attention.
The Piaget Polo Skeleton in pink gold with a blue PVD-coated movement and a strap that is made of alligator leather is a real attention-getter. It exhibits a pleasing dynamic that is both luxurious and sporty.

With this model, Piaget wants to modernise the skeleton movement away from the conventional approach. The refined, almost understated finishing aims to impress with precision rather than an excessively wide range of various techniques. This produces a watch that is attractive to look at and prevents the Polo Skeleton from having a busy dial.
When you see it from the back, the watch has a round shape, but the slightly cushion-shaped bezel gives it a different character on the face. The excellent balance between brushed and polished surfaces makes the case perfect to frame the complicated skeleton movement.
The Polo Skeleton is generously sized with its 42 mm case that gives a perfect presence signal on the wrist. Starting with the dimensions, the bezel and case appear “just right” in relation to the movement, and the ring marking the minutes and hours deftly contributes to improving the legibility in general.
Inside the case, there’s a Piaget ultra-thin movement, Calibre 1200S1, that runs at 21,600vph (3Hz) and offers 44 hours of power reserve. With an overall height of just 6.5 mm, this very thin movement fits snugly on the wrist.
The relatively short lugs also contribute to the watch’s general wearing comfort and the fact that it fits well on the wrists of most people. Comfort is what this luxurious watch has, and it comes with a modern edge and delightfully ultra-thin mechanisms.
