Green continues to be a strong colour in the watchmaking zeitgeist with watches like the Kurono Calendrier Type 1 continuing to a stir. Now it’s the turn of Piaget’s Polo collection to reinvent itself in green hues. Specifically, we’re getting new, green versions of the rose gold Piaget Polo Date and stainless steel Piaget Polo skeleton.
The Polo Green Date is the quintessential version of the Polo, its porthole dial nestled within the circular bezel. Its shade of green is particularly rich, verging on emerald, like a healthy leaf at the height of spring. The cool green provides an interesting contrast to the warmth of the gold hands and indexes.
Then there’s the Polo Green Skeleton. Essentially, they’ve taken all the blue components of the Polo Skeleton and turned them green. It’s that simple. The colour itself is the same shade of green as the Date model but it seems a little more desaturated because there’s less of a concentrated area of colour and it’s paired with steel.
As for price, the Piaget Polo Green Date is £24,300 and the Polo Green Skeleton is £25,000. Those are the same prices as the other colourways of each model. They fill the hole left in the watch market by the short-lived green Nautilus 5711/1A admirably.
