About a year ago, exactly in the summer of 2016, Piaget attracted the attention of enthusiasts and professionals with the new models Polo S and Polo S Chronograph ADLC / RUBBER.

The new timepieces have indeed brought a breath of fresh air into the home Piaget attracting the attention of a young, dynamic audience looking for a luxury sports watch.

The new models presented at SIHH 2017 represented an evolution of the POLO S.
Made in a limited edition of 888 specimens, they are both united by a case with sinuous lines with a black satin bezel that goes well with the dial and the black rubber strap.

The polished steel case measures 42mm, with a thickness of just 9.4mm it is waterproof up to 100m. The black-satin bezel made in ADLC extension (amorphous carbon-like coating), a material that makes it more resistant to scratches, is the element that certainly distinguishes this model from those presented last year.

The sophisticated black dial with horizontal wood finish is exceptional in terms of legibility. The dauphine hands and indexes (both luminescent) are silver in color, except for the second hand which is tinged with red at its tip and at its base a stylized diamond encloses a small "P". For both models the date is set at 6 o'clock.

The sapphire crystal placed on the back allows you to admire the beating heart of the watch.

Il Piaget Polo S it features the in-house automatic caliber 1110 P, developed on the basis of the 800P, and its slate-gray oscillating weight with a whetstone finish. For lovers of technique, the movement, made up of around 180 components, pulses at 28,800 vibrations / hour (4Hz) and has a power reserve of 50 hours.

Il Piaget Polo S Chronograph it is equipped with the also in-house caliber 1160P, developed on the basis of the 880P. The chronograph functions are sorted by means of a column wheel with vertical insertion. The decorations are the same as the time-only caliber.

The test on the wrist, as often happens, was decisive in having a more precise opinion and abandoning the initial skepticism about this Piaget. Surely it is not a watch with a strong character, but it is not necessarily a defect.

The new model has a more discreet and polite charm. A sporty timepiece of undoubted elegance with decidedly refined mechanics.

Considering the high quality level of the two models limited edition the price is certainly competitive, especially when compared to 'competing' brands. The price of the Polo S is € 10.600, while that of the Chronograph is € 14.300.
