Piaget Scores with Polo FortyFive

Laurie Kahle

Thirty years after its debut, Piaget’s Polo collection has undergone another face-lift. With a refreshed and updated outlook, the Polo FortyFive (named for its upsized 45mm dimension) delivers contemporary sporty style in keeping with the brand’s elegant persona. The four new models carry on the design signature of combining brushed and polished finishes, though they represent a break from Piaget tradition by utilizing titanium, steel, and rubber—materials that the brand previously eschewed. Consequently, the standard automatic ($11,900) and chronograph ($17,900) are priced well below Piaget’s average. And there’s real value in the manufacture’s in-house 800P and 880P movements, the latter of which is an impressive flyback chronograph with a column wheel and a vertical coupling clutch. Next year, the ladies can look forward to a Polo FortyFive of their own. (877.874.2438, www.piaget.com)
