Introducing Piaget Polo Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin Watch

A manual perpetual calendar, a symbol of complexity in which Piaget has amassed tremendous expertise, has been introduced into the Polo line for the very first time since its refurbishment in 2016. With the Piaget Polo Perpetual Calendar Ultra-thin, the legendary Piaget Polo achieves previously unheard-of altitudes in 2023. 

This gorgeous new edition features one of the most recognizable complexities in watchmaking, which is evocatively enhanced by a moon phase indicator. Perpetual calendar pieces, created to update the day, date, and year up to 2100 (together with the months, moon phases, and leap-year cycle), inherently attract a choosy and perceptive audience who value the total amount of Haute Horlogerie Savoir Faire contained within these variants.

Notable individuals such as Ursula Andress, Andy Warhol, Roger Moore, and Björn Borg have worn the unique unisex emblem in steel or gold. Its defining aspect and aura of exclusivity connect with the Piaget ethos of mutual delight, sophistication, and extravagance.

Furthermore, due to his extensive travels, Yves Piaget was able to gauge the American industry’s dynamism and demand for high-end sports timepieces. Piaget was, therefore, ready to challenge market norms by presenting a sporty and laid-back style to 24-hour manufacturing elegance that struck the U.S.

Piaget first established its name by creating and producing incredibly thin parts and making incredibly thin movements. The in-house 12P movement introduced in 1960 was the slimmest in the market since it drew inspiration from employing a micro-rotor to assure its super-thinness and combined manufacturing expertise, high-precision architecture, and bold invention. This caliber eventually gave birth to the second iteration of 1200P caliber 50 years later.

The Manufacture used the super-thin 1200P caliber, which has a reputation for dependability and exceptional slimness, as a reference for the latest 1255P ultra-thin 4 mm caliber from Piaget while incorporating a second perpetual calendar featuring a moon phase system. The stunning 42-millimeter Piaget Polo Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin, with an overall thickness of just 8.65 millimeters, brings the world to the wrist. At the same time, it maintains the upbeat highlife mood displayed by this delightfully festive and vibrant line.

The Piaget Polo Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin comprises 3 subdials for the date, month, and day of the week at 9, 3, and 12 o’clock. This is in addition to the moon phase indicator at 6 o’clock and a deep emerald-green dial featuring a gadroon design. Moreover, the wristwatch has a big 42 mm body that is still stylish and slender, measuring 8.65 mm thick. Also, in keeping with Piaget’s custom, the subdials include Super-Luminova indices and a variety of finishes that enhance visual depth when the light interacts with them.

The gadroons that have become a component of the Piaget Polo trademark since 1979 are still on the casing. However, their reintroduction on the bracelet strengthens the visual ties between the newest Piaget Polo and its forerunners.

The Piaget caliber 1255P ultra-thin automatic movement, which has a 42-hour power reserve and beats at a speed of 21,600 mph, powers this Piaget Polo Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin. It has a micro-rotor featuring a blued oscillation weight and the sapphire case back, allowing a complete view of the movement.

Lastly, a green rubber strap offers an extra sports option for the timepiece along with the steel band, taking fluidity a step ahead. The watch additionally features a brand-new adjustable SingleTouch mechanism for the band, which conveniently but firmly broadens the wearability possibilities. It is also waterproof to 30 meters.
