Piaget / Bucherer Piaget Polo S Bucherer Blue Editions
Over the last two years, Bucherer’s Blue Editions collection has been regularly expanded with new blue watches. The latest to date is a Polo S chronograph by Piaget.
Since 2016, a dozen or so major watch brands have joined forces with Bucherer to pay tribute to the retailer’s signature colour – blue – through exclusive watches available only through Bucherer stores. Chopard, Audemars Piguet, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Longines, Panerai and Piaget, amongst others, have developed wristwatches with certain specific features for Bucherer’s Blue Editions collection, which today numbers around 20 pieces. Just under one month ago, another exceptional fine mechanical watch – the Harley-Davidson Blue Edition – was added to the collection. Designed in collaboration with the watchmakers of Carl F. Bucherer and the jewellers of Bucherer, this stunning machine is the first motorbike to come equipped with its own high jewellery watch and precious stones (l).
But let’s get back to the new Piaget Polo S chronograph, the Bucherer Blue Edition. This is Piaget’s second watch in the collection, coming after the 40 mm Altiplano in 18K rose gold with silvered dial, baton markers and blue hands, with a matching blue leather strap. The Piaget Polo S Bucherer Blue Edition chronograph is an exclusive variation of the Polo S chronograph launched in 2016 (to celebrate the reissue of this collection which dates back to 1979) with a steel case and silvered or blue dial, designed in collaboration with Bucherer. The exclusive Bucherer Blue Edition is distinguished by a darker blue dial and the addition of numerous rose gold accents on the minutes track, the hands for the hours, minutes, seconds and chronograph functions, the surrounds of the chronograph registers and date window, and the markers. The Piaget logo and the legend “Automatic” are also picked out in rose gold.

Inside the steel case beats the manufacture calibre 1160P, an automatic movement developed specifically for the 2016 Polo S chronograph. A column wheel ensures optimum precision for the various phases of the chronograph movement, and a vertical clutch system saves power, guaranteeing a 50-hour power reserve. The sapphire caseback provides an unimpeded view of the exclusive blue rotor decorated with the Piaget emblem and Geneva striping, as well as the circular-grained mainplate, chamfered bridges and sunbrushed wheels.
