Imagine a timepiece that not only tells the time but also narrates a fascinating story of artistic flair, technical ingenuity, and the joie de vivre shared. This year, at Only Watch 2023, we get a close look at a creation that encapsulates all these elements, unveiling the unprecedented collaboration of artistry and watchmaking – the Piaget Polo Skeleton Arty.
The Piaget Polo is renowned for its disruptive design, a significant work of art that’s instantly recognizable to aficionados and a stellar embodiment of a sophisticated lifestyle. It’s a timepiece that has harmoniously combined curved lines and signature details since its inception in 1979. With a graceful merger of yellow gold and vibrantly colored hard stone dials, the Polo exudes both distinction and exuberance, a testament to Piaget’s watchmaking prowess.
This iconic piece has been intensely refined over the years, aligning with the brand’s principles of watchmaking excellence. It’s a piece that gracefully sits on the wrist, offering a ‘second skin’ feel, marking its place among the world’s elite. Piaget Society, where high fashion and high watchmaking meet, embraces this piece with open arms. Yves Piaget’s friendship with the iconic Andy Warhol further elevated the watch’s stature, making it a common sight in elite circles.
Only Watch 2023 sees Piaget contributing a uniquely crafted Polo Skeleton Arty, a masterpiece that resonates with artistic, technical, and chic vibes. This edition, paying homage to Victor Vasarely’s “Hexa Grace” displayed in Monaco, combines watchmaking craftsmanship with an artistic touch. It is a brightly colored wonder, a creative intersection of technology and artistry.
The Polo Skeleton Arty pulsates with a colored Manufacture calibre 1200S1, showcasing green, blue, and rose-gold skeletonized bridges designed exclusively for this unique piece. The ultra-thin movement, a mere 2.4 mm in thickness, rests within a 42 mm rose-gold case, achieving a slender profile of only 6.5 mm in thickness.
Accompanying this exquisite piece is a specifically designed blue interchangeable strap, presenting a delightful contrast and complementing the colored skeletonized bridges. The highest bidder will have the privilege of adorning their wrist with this one-of-a-kind creation, displaying not just the time, but a vivid portrayal of Piaget’s unwavering commitment to watchmaking artistry and technical excellence
