Piaget Polo Forty Five 30th Anniversary Watch Model


2009 marks 30 years of the Piaget Polo watch. Over that time the character of the watch has remained really consistent, though for 2009 the Polo watch gets very sporty looking. First announced was the new chronograph version of the Piaget Polo Forty Five, but this three hand model is attractive and unique in its own way. The silver or black toned faces give the Polo Forty Five a strong look akin to more mainstream luxury sport watches. There is also a serious diving watch style influence in the dial design in my opinion.

Nothing is mainstream about the powerful Piaget 880P in-house made automatic movement contained within the Polo Forty Five watch. Such a movement is at the heart of what makes up exclusive Swiss luxury timepieces. The sports theme of the watch continues to the high-quality rubber strap with butterfly locking signed clasp. I am unfortunately not a big fan of the extended date window. The case is in steel, with precious metal models to come eventually. I see the Polo model becoming sportier in the coming years.
