I’d actually prefer to assume there’s a minimum of one particular person on the market who decides to personal this males’s diamond bezel Piaget Polo Skeleton Computerized watch (which I used to be in a position to take a look at by way of approved vendor Mr. Porter) as their each day put on. It is a very humorous watch as a result of it’s each extremely unique and, on the identical time, oddly efficient at being a each day put on for a minimum of some life. Extra so, it has this uncommon means to take care of the class and poise Piaget’s finest designs are know for, whereas additionally incorporating trendy masculinity, as if the model had been channeling a mix of its internal Roger Dubuis and Hublot. Briefly, whereas the Piaget Polo Skeleton Computerized reference G0A46010 watch isn’t for everybody, it’s a extremely spectacular timepiece from a spot a whole lot of collectors won’t instantly assume to look.
Let me be clear that it is a fancier model of a metal sports activities way of life Polo watch assortment accessible from Piaget. It isn’t low cost, however the $30,100 USD Piaget Polo Skeleton metal watch on matching metal bracelet (the model throws within the alligator strap, as properly) is the place this motion and dial design begin at, price-wise. The watch comes with this blue-finished motion or one in a shade of grey. It’s really a extremely beautiful different to a lot of the competitors, even when I feel the worth continues to be a bit on the formidable aspect.
The Piaget Polo case has by no means appeared nicer, in my view. The design is a merger of a cushion-style form and a spherical case. Right here it’s 42mm-wide, and I’ve all the time cherished the fascinating phantasm you get when the face is a cushion whereas the case is ordinarily spherical. Along with the stunning design, the case has just a few issues going for it such because the slim 6.5mm thickness. The motion is simply 2.4mm-thick — however extra on that in a second.
Piaget actually did an admirable job with the dial design, which incorporates utilized hour markers and comparatively legible deal with in opposition to a skeletonized motion face. It’s simply actually properly executed and few can do it in addition to Piaget. This reference G0A46010 model of the Piaget Polo Skeleton watch has an 18k white gold case that’s adorned with 56 brilliant-cut stones across the periphery. The marginally completely different sizes of the stones assist emphasis the cushion form in a approach that makes it look much more pronounced than on variations of this case with a merely brushed steel bezel. Piaget additionally produces an 18k rose gold model of the Piaget Polo Skeleton (not on a bracelet, as properly), which is priced about halfway between this 18k white gold diamond model and the all-steel model.
Connected to the case is a blue alligator strap that actually does match the persona of the Polo Skeleton case with this skeletonized motion properly. The motion is Piaget’s in-house caliber 1200S1 computerized, which makes use of a micro-rotor as a way to present that extraordinarily skinny profile. I’m not in love with the truth that the motion lacks a subsidiary seconds fingers (it solely shows the hours and minutes), however I in any other case don’t have anything however fondness for this caliber with regards to fashion and beauty.
The motion is once more simply 2.4mm-thick working at 3Hz with 44 hours of energy reserve. The motion helps make the Piaget Polo Skeleton assortment thinner than a whole lot of the competitors – which in my view is an enormous level for marketability. Arguably, Piaget doesn’t convey something revolutionary within the seems division (although the watch is, certainly, very good), however the mixture of the general fashion and the very nice slim motion makes for a compelling bundle.
I feel I’d be comfortable sporting any of the Piaget Polo Skeleton watches when in comparison with a few of the extra standard competitors on the market. That mentioned, the watch on this kind with diamonds — mixing modernity and traditional formality — is a particular persona that I dig. It isn’t cheap and is rather a lot like driving a extremely costly unique automotive simply because it seems a bit nicer than a extremely costly mainstream automotive. I’d love to listen to what different individuals must say about it. Value for the reference G0A46010 Piaget Polo Skeleton Computerized Diamonds watch is $61,500 USD.
