Piaget is not necessarily known for their manly watches. Don’t get me wrong, I love the brand. I think what they do is beautiful and classy. Especially their lady’s collection. Though we can’t complain about the men’s line-up either. So, this time we will concentrate on those models and run through the 2019 SIHH Piaget novelties. We have 6 watches all together; 3 from the Polo collection and 3 from the Altiplano. This article we give you a bit of an insight into the Polo models.
As the brand says, the 2019 Polo collection brings vibrance to the SIHH. Obviously, these are very special pieces in looks. One new Polo color and 2 pieces with heavy diamond sets. Let’s start with the most elegant of all 3 (according to my taste). It’s the Piaget Polo G0A44001 with a 42mm steel case and Piaget’s self-winding 1110P caliber. Nothing new here, except for its looks. This model has a beautiful green dial, silver indexes with Super-LumiNova. The watch comes on a matching green alligator strap with folding buckle. The photos don’t do the color in justice. It’s much more of a dark, almost racing green tone. Looks great on the wrist as the green works well with most things and is very neutral. The other 2 pieces are a bit more out there, so to speak.
The next 2 models have nothing. New, in terms of case design. The first one is the less “diamondy” version, the G0A44010. This is again a 42mm watch, this time in an 18K red gold case. The movement, just like with the green Polo is the 1110P but this is not why we talk about this Piaget. It is the 56 brilliant cut diamonds grossing 1.53ct. The gems are set in the bezel of the case giving a special sparkle to the dial. This time it is a white face, pink gold indexes again with Superluminova. The strap is a beautiful deep blue alligator leather. The buckle is the same 18K pink gold as the case. Folding buckle on it too. This watch also comes with a second brown leather strap, “mahagony alligator” as the brand puts it.
The highlight of this collection is the Piaget Polo G0A44011. Again, 18k red gold 42mm case. 1110P movement that by the way has a power reserve of 50 hours. It is made of 280 components, has 25 jewels and frequency of 28,800 vph. However, just like with the previous Polo this Piaget is special for another reason. You have the same diamond bezel with different sizes of stones to match the thickness of the bezel. Like with the previous Piaget Polo. Exactly the same amount and carat of stones. Though this model has an 18k white dial that has 496 brilliant cut diamonds sitting on it. They are 1.86 carats altogether. The indexes are again pink gold. From the strap point of view the G0A44011 and the G0A44010 are identical. 2 straps, 2 colors and an 18k gold folding buckle.
