Piaget unveils the iconic Polo Date and Polo Skeleton with dazzling green dials | Source: Piaget
The latest watchmaker to adopt the soothing allure of the color green is none other than Piaget. The Swiss watch brand recently unveiled its iconic Piaget Polo Date and Piaget Polo Skeleton with dazzling green dials.
But it’s not just any shade of green. According to the brand, the color is inspired by the nature surrounding the Piaget Manufacture in La Côte-aux-Fées, Switzerland, where the company was founded. Piaget said it “symbolizes the power of nature and the celebration of life” and has “always been a source of inspiration for the Maison”.
Green dials add sparkle to its signature sports watch collection with two new iterations, including a rose gold model and a stainless steel skeleton version.
Both new Piaget Polo editions sport the same style and relaxed elegance of the 1979 original, but feel modern, lively and project an appealing air of positivity.
Crafted in 18k rose gold, the 42mm Piaget Polo Date features a horizontal ridged green dial with luminous hands and gold-lined markers. The watch is equipped with a green alligator strap and a sapphire crystal caseback that displays the 1110P self-winding manufacture movement. The green iteration of the Polo Date sells for around AU$42,890.
The beloved 42mm Piaget Polo Skeleton crafted in stainless steel also gets the bright green treatment. The bridges and the outer ring of the chapter dial proudly display the color, as well as certain parts of the movement that contrast with the steel case, bringing the watch to life.
It is powered by the masterful self-winding mechanical skeleton movement which removes the majority of the metal on the components to leave a high-visibility watch measuring just 6.5mm thick. Sold with an interchangeable stainless steel bracelet and a green alligator strap, it sells for around 44,172 Australian dollars.
Not only is green the most talked about hue in watchmaking right now (think Patek Philippe’s Green Dial Nautilus), but it infuses watches with a sense of energy while evoking feelings of nature and life.
Radiating more than just a new color, Piaget said green “takes the collection into new territory of expression for trendsetters who love design, elegance and want to share their nuance of boldness.”
A few months ago, Piaget also presented some of its high jewelry timepieces, including the Polo Skeleton and the Limelight Gala Aventurine.
