Yves Piaget’s frequent trips to the United States enabled him to fully grasp the enthusiasm of the American market and its appetite for luxury sports watches.

Worn by legendary celebrities such as Ursula Andress, Roger Moore, Andy Warhol and Björn Borg, this extraordinary unisex emblem in gold or steel shines with a unique personality and is known for its inimitable aura that resonates with the philosophy of sharing. joy, extravagance and beauty so dear to Piaget.
The iconic Perpetual Calendar
The iconic Piaget Polo collection welcomes for the first time a mechanical perpetual calendar, testimony to Piaget’s know-how in this iconic complication, an expertise that can be found in several other timepiece collections. Designed to correct the day, date and time until the year 2100 – months, moon phases and cycles of leap years –– the Quantième Perpétuel watch naturally appeals to an informed and demanding public, sensitive to know-how and to the expertise deployed by Haute Horlogerie.
Ultra-thin watchmaking, at the forefront
Piaget built its reputation first on the design and manufacture of extremely thin components and then on the development of ultra-thin movements.
Introduced in 1960, the in-house caliber 12P combines watchmaking expertise, ultra-sophisticated architecture and daring creativity. It was the thinnest movement in the world at the time, a feat based on the ingenious use of a micro-rotor mass. Half a century later, this movement will give birth to a new generation of 1200P movements.
To create the new 4mm ultra-thin caliber 1255P, the Manufacture took inspiration from caliber 1200P, combining extreme craftsmanship with proven reliability, and added a perpetual calendar with a mechanism for displaying the phases. moon. With a total thickness of just 8.65 mm, the new 42 mm Piaget Polo Quantième Perpétuel Extra-Thin brings the universe to the wrist while retaining the joy and energy that characterize this festive and colorful collection.
The deep emerald green dial of the Piaget Polo Quantième Perpétuel Extra-Plate is decorated with gadroons, three sub-dials representing the date, month (and leap year) and day of the week at 9 o’clock, 12 o’clock and 3 o’clock, while the moon phase display is at 6 o’clock. In keeping with Piaget tradition, the sub-dials are treated with different finishes that create an incredibly rich visual effect when the light passes through, as do the hour markers coated in SuperLumiNova®. A signature element of the historic Piaget Polo case since 1979, the gadroons reappear on the bracelet of the Piaget Polo Quantième Perpétuel Extra-Plate, an elegant way of making the aesthetic link between Piaget’s new generation and its predecessor.
Additional detail, in its rubber version – taking up the gadroon motif of the dial – the bracelet is equipped with the innovative SingleTouch interchangeability system, allowing the watch to be worn easily and safely in different styles.
A natural distinction, a whole heritage
The new Piaget Polo Quantième Perpétuel Extra-Thin continues to embody the happy blend of everyday elegance, sophistication and luxury for which the watch is renowned. For Piaget, style is necessarily a gift, even a seventh sense. Something that certainly cannot be bought or learned. While retaining its natural character, Piaget Polo invites everyone to freely express the different aspects of their personality; whatever the situation, she instills a unique strength of being completely in her place while standing out.
Piaget Polo watches are the perfect combination of watchmaking expertise and everyday elegance, day or night, in public or in private. Always in all circumstances without being forgotten, it offers a modern style to the most daring personalities.
