The first Piaget skeleton watches were created in the 1970s and, since then, the brand has developed considerable skills and experience in the art of skeletonisation.
Piaget's latest effort in skeleton watch making produced the new Polo Skeleton, a model that maintains the key elements of the Polo, such as the curved case surmounted by a round bezel and the cushion-shaped dial opening, but in a case that is 30 percent thinner than existing versions.
In fact, the 42 mm stainless steel case of the Polo Skeleton is just 6.5 mm thick.
The result was possible thanks to the manufacture 1200S1 self-winding movement which is a wafer-like 2.4 mm thin. Beating at the frequency of 3 Hz (21,600 vibrations per hour), it offers a power reserve of 44 hours. The off-centre micro rotor in platinum is engraved with Piaget coat of arms.
The new Piaget Polo Skeleton is available in two variations: one with a movement in Piaget Blue PVD (ref. G0A45004), the second in a slate gray finish (ref. G0A45001).
The beautiful finishes can be appreciated from both sides thanks to a transparent sapphire crystal caseback.
Water resistant up to a pressure of 3 ATM (approximately 30 metres / 100 feet), the new model comes with a polished and satin-finished ‘H’ design integrated bracelet as well as with an interchangeable leather strap for added versatility.
The Piaget Polo Skeleton has a price of Euro 29,500 (including VAT) / US$ 28,500 (before sales taxes). piaget.com
