The promo video for the Piaget Polo S may not feature Santa prancing around on rooftops trying to fit his ample girth into chimney tops, but it does feature Ryan Reynolds up there, and boy, is he busy. The idea: there’s a rampant polo ball whizzing through the skies and only he can catch it (which, not to give it away, he does). It’s Piaget’s way of introducing their ‘game changer’ watch, a steel version of the Polo model that was first introduced in 1979. The launch in New York created one of the ‘moments’ of the year, and showed the modern face of high-end horology, which is more and more about meeting the market, while still bringing the superior finishing and detail you’d expect from a brand as prestigious as Piaget.
Who should you buy this for: A connoisseur, because Piaget’s place at the very highest echelons of watchmaking is unquestioned.
What’s the damage: Under $16k
