WatchTime New York 2023 is less than a month away from October 20 to 22nd at Manhattan’s Gotham Hall, with over thirty incredible brands poised to showcase some of the most important watches of the year for this incredible collectors’ event. Joining this year is the praised luxury maison Piaget, with the brand to be presenting the new Polo Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin.
At the center of the new watch is its namesake perpetual calendar, with the complication capable of accurately displaying the day, date, month, and moon phase for nearly a century. Piaget adds a chic twist to this timeless haute horlogerie complication by executing it through its sports-focused Polo collection, creating a fascinating novelty that marries modern mechanical tradition with a touch of action-readiness.
The Piaget Polo Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin boasts a 42mm stainless steel case, a relative rarity for perpetual calendars often housed in precious metal cases, with its thinness of 8.65mm showcasing the brand’s aptitude for creative mechanical watchmaking. Notably this choice of material helps provide the sophistication of the watch’s incredibly thin perpetual calendar functionality with a more casual and versatile appearance, fostering a unique duality in wear. For added flexibility, the model comes equipped with a comfortable stainless steel bracelet, which can be effortlessly swapped for a sporty rubber strap.
While the case of the watch is undoubtedly fascinating, it’s the uncommon Polo which captures your extended attention. The watch features a stunning green dial with a harmonious hue, with it striking a clear balance between functionality, organization, and legibility. The dial importantly avoids overcrowding, in part by showcasing the moon phase through a smaller window at the 6 o’clock position. This design decision not only enhances the generally legibility of the display but also adds a touch of technical sophistication to the timepiece, harmonizing flawlessly with its overall design.
Piaget lives up to its “ultra-slim” promise with the Polo Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin via the caliber 1255P. This movement is essentially the automatic caliber 1200P, launched in 2010, enhanced with a perpetual calendar module. Remarkably, this brings the movement’s overall thickness to a mere 4mm. While it might not break records for thinness, it brings several advantages, including an attractive price point, all while maintaining the delicate balance between reliability and slimness. With an overall height of 8.65mm, Piaget has created a highly desirable perpetual calendar watch with a casually chic aesthetic.
The Piaget Polo Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin is available for $58,500 on a non-limited basis. Don’t miss the opportunity to see the watch live and in-person, alongside so many other exceptional timepieces, at this year’s WatchTime New York.
