A Complete Guidebook On Piaget Polo S Chronograph Men’s Replica Watch

I was surprised when Piaget announced the new Piaget  Polo S and Polo S Chronograph replica watches in July last year. Piaget already has a sports replica watch in the Polo FortyFive, but a new luxury sports replica watch in steel wasn’t something I was expecting from them. But with the benefit of hindsight, a luxury sports replica watch in steel is something that Piaget men’s replica absolutely needs. The new Piaget Polo S and Polo S Chronograph replica watches are important for the brand because, first, their designs are more appealing to younger audiences, and second, they are considerably more affordable than Piaget’s more typical ultra-thin and dressy replica watches. So it is with these thoughts in mind today that I check out the new Piaget Polo S Chronograph replica watch as well as the Polo S Chronograph in black ADLC with a rubber strap, the non-chronograph version of which we also covered.

Before I talk about the Polo S Chronograph replica watch, it is worth doing a quick recap of the new Piaget Polo S replica watches. Unofficially, the “S” stands for steel and sports. But perhaps more importantly, the design of these new replica watches has generated a lot of chatter online, mainly because of their resemblance to Patek Philippe’s Nautilus and Aquanaut. But I think that is mainly because most people are unaware of Piaget’s earlier Polo replica watch from the late ’70s. If you are familiar with the vintage Polo, you’ll immediately see that the new Polo S replica watches have more in common with the vintage Polo than Patek Philippe’s Nautilus and Aquanaut.

That said, I won’t deny that there are similarities between the Polo S and the two similar-looking Patek Philippe sport replica watches, but, in the flesh, the Polo S has a much more distinctive design than what press photos would suggest. Further, the limited edition (there will be 888 made) Polo S Chronograph in black with its rubber strap gives a distinctly sleeker and younger style. Either way, both of these models present a relatively value-priced offering that is a notch above options from Omega and Rolex and are competitive with pieces like the Nautilus, Overseas, Royal Oak, etc…

 

The Piaget Polo S Chronograph comes in a 42mm stainless steel case and measures 11.4mm thick. These are pretty typical dimensions for a modern luxury sports chronograph. However, the thick bezel and the flat case back help make the replica watch look smaller than it actually is. In person, the flat case back helps keep the replica watch close to the wrist and creates the illusion of a thinner replica watch. It’s a fairly comfortable replica watch to wear.


On the wrist, the Polo S Chronograph exudes considerable presence thanks to its size and the fine work that Piaget has done with the case. It is well-finished and combines elements of round and cushion-shaped cases for a rather distinctive look – the bezel is round and the cushion-shaped dial is somewhere between the two. Water resistance is 100 meters, which is adequate for a sports replica watch.



The bracelet is nicely crafted too, with a mixture of polished and satin-brushed links. However, I do feel that for a luxury sports replica watch, the bracelet ought to taper in order to create a more elegant look. Here, the Polo S Chronograph’s bracelet has a uniform width throughout that doesn’t look as stylish as the other elements of the replica watch, in my opinion. As for the rubber strap on the black version, there were mixed opinions on the standard Polo S black version. Still, the stitching lends at least somewhat of a refined look to the often more affordable material.
