Watches Wednesday: Piaget Polo Skeleton

Piaget‘s sports watch, the Polo gets a new upgrade this year, and morphs into a Skeleton model. Just like us here at Bag Addicts Anonymous, the legendary jazz trumpeter, bandleader, and one of the leading Bop musicians of all time, Miles Davis, too, was a fan of skeletonised watches, especially that of the Piaget variety, as he was often spotted with a gold Piaget skeleton watch gleaming away on his wrist as he serenaded his audience.

Yep, we certainly are massive fans of tourbillons, but what’s even better than that, is the ultra-thin skeleton, which is an even more amazing feat in itself. For this Polo Skeleton, the Maison required the case to be 30 percent thinner, in order to fit the wafer-thin movement (Piaget’s self-winding 1200S1). The result? A 6.5mm thick case which houses the 2.4mm skeletonised movement that comes either in blue PVD  or slate grey, powered by an off-centre micro rotor engraved with Piaget’s coat of arms. Flip the watch over onto its back and you’d find a clear sapphire crystal case back.

Piaget Polo Skeleton Interchangeable Straps

Movement aside, this particular version of the Polo still retains its curved case with its round bezel on top, and cushion-shaped dial opening, as well as the satin-finished H design integrated bracelet, which now comes with an interchangeable function, which can be easily swapped out with the additional matching leather strap that comes with it.

If you’re a fan of this timepiece, keep your eyes peeled for this timepiece, which will be dropping into stores next month (April 2021)! Oh, be still our hearts because we can attest to the fact that these pictures really doesn’t do the watch justice at all because they look even better on the wrist IRL!
