PIAGET Debuts its 1st Steel Watch Collection for Men
The luxury brand unveils a brand new timepiece range, the Polo S
It may not be the sexiest watch material, but Stainless Steel is having a moment now. It is a durable and relatively inexpensive material that can allow brands to offer otherwise costlier, precious metal-encased watches at lower prices.
Beyond that, steel is also the classic choice for sporty icons such as the Patek Philippe Nautilus and the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak.
This year brands like Blancpain, Chopard, Girard-Perregaux and Frederique Constant introduced Steel editions of timepieces ranging from perpetual calendars to dual-timers.
Recently in NYC Piaget unveiled its 1st 5-piece steel watch collection, the Polo S, in an event hosted by brand Ambassador, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds, and 8 other “game-changing” famous people from around the world.
A fresh take on the Piaget Polo, an existing range first launched in Y 1979, the new Polo S juxtaposes a cushion-shaped dial against a 42mm round case.
There are 2 main models
The automatic Polo S, and the Polo S Chronograph. Both are powered by new movements.
The former is driven by the selfwinding 1110P movement, while the chronographs house the selfwinding 1160P movement.
The US retail price for the Piaget Polo S is $9,350 and the Polo S Chronograph is $12,400.
