Paris, France — It’s all there. The wafer thin case, the intricate open work, a skeleton to compete with any skeleton revealing the complex movements within. Piaget has just brought out its Polo Skeleton line, featuring a completely skeletonized version of the house’s celebrated Piaget Polo. Still sporty, the watch offers the familiar round case of the Polo line in the skeletonized version and has the same stainless steel case.

The watch measures in at an overall thickness of 6.5 mm and with its 42 mm case is available in graphite gray or cobalt blue PVD coating. Two strap options are available: the polished bracelet in stainless steel or an alligator strap to match the color of the dial. Despite the intense complexity and thinness of the watch, the Polo Piaget Skeleton remains robust with a power reserve of 44 hours and the timepiece is water-resistant to 30 meters (100 feet).

The house brought out its now mythical Piaget Polo, a revolutionary luxury sport’s watch in 1979 and its first skeleton models in the 1970s. Miles Davis wore one, in gold, often during one of his bold performances. The house was founded in 1874 and at its inception Georges-Edouard Piaget devoted himself to elaborating highly precise movements.
