As the wants of watch consumers evolve, so, too, must the watchmakers catering to this ever-fickle group of discerning shoppers. Take Piaget, for example. Best known for its record-breaking, ultrathin movements and beautiful mosaic dials ideal for a black-tie evening, the Swiss watchmaker has just introduced the Polo S, its first-ever all-steel collection, starting at $9,350.

The Piaget Polo S recasts the brand’s iconic 1979 Polo watch and reimagines it as a sportier day-into-night timepiece that will surely introduce the brand to a much wider audience of watch lovers. Sure, Piaget had a brief moment with stainless-steel watches 15 years ago as part of its Upstream collection, but the Polo S marks the first complete collection of steel watches — not to mention a new opening price point for the brand.

At first glance, its handsome case is most striking. The cushion-shaped dial (note the guilloche dial) is housed within a 42mm round case. But the influence of Piaget’s luxurious Emperador line is also evident. Two styles of the Polo S will be available: an automatic in three color variations (blue, gray, and white), and a self-winding Chronograph in two (blue and white). 

Piaget has remained true to maintaining the strictest quality standards — not the least of which is the inclusion of in-house-made automatic movements especially for these timepieces. The 42mm automatic features the Manufacture Piaget 1110P movement displaying hours, minutes, and seconds, with a date window at six. The chronograph ($12,400) uses the Manufacture Piaget 1160P self-winding movement and adds two sub-dials, with a 30-minute counter at three and a 12 hour counter at nine. Both movements are visible via a sapphire caseback and are water resistant to 100 meters.

Capping it all off, each Polo S is mated to a hand-assembled stainless-steel bracelet with alternating polished and satin-finished links with a convenient deployant buckle.
