Piaget’s new Polo Skeleton sees the brand double down on its steel sports watch with the first major development for the collection since it introduced a chronograph into the line nearly four years ago.

Using Piaget’s 1200S ultra-thin, skeletonized automatic movement (which at just 2.35mm thick is one of the thinnest automatic movements in the world) has allowed the brand to house it in a new version of the Polo’s 42mm case which is 6.5mm from front to back and around 30% thinner than previous references.

The new thinner case allows the Polo Skeleton to sit much flatter on the wrist, not only making it more comfortable to wear but also making for a more subtle silhouette than its diameter might suggest.

Two references are being released with the option of movements in either blue or anthracite PVD coatings. The open-work design of the 1200S movement reveals much of the movement’s inner workings including the balance, escape wheel, mainspring barrel and platinum micro rotor.

The Piaget Polo Skeleton, which features a quick change system for both steel bracelet and alligator straps, is out today priced at $34,300 USD (£26,500 GBP).

Piaget’s timing with the release of its new Polo Skeleton is uncanny given the number of people in the market for a stainless steel integrated sports watch who have also just been kicked off of 10-year waiting lists for the now discontinued Patek Philippe 5711/A Nautilus.

Elsewhere in watches, Artisans de Genève reveals a private commission to transform Patek Philippe’s famed Nautilus.
