Green has always been a sophisticated option for a watch face: a way of showing an independence of thought amongst a sea of monochrome conformity.
As such we're delighted to see the two latest models from Piaget, in the form of Polo Green Date and Polo Green Skeleton, who both have taken inspiration from the lush landscape of Switzerland's La Côte-aux-Fées. The Polo has been a Piaget favourite for some considerable time, making its debut in 1979 and receiving an update in 2016 to ensure it kept up with modern trends (a thinner, more youthful take proved popular).
However these two new models are particularly striking. The Polo Green Date features a 42mm rose gold case, which contrasts perfectly with the spruce -coloured dial and matching green alligator strap. The exhibition caseback shows off Piaget’s celebrated in-house calibre 1110P movement. The Polo Green Skeleton comes in a steel 42mm case with green bridges, which showcases effortlessly the intricate inner workings of the timepiece - a watch to be worn with confidence.
