Polo FortyFive Chronographe Diaporama
In contrast to the Altiplano's classicism, Piaget, with this Polo FortyFive, offers a sports chronograph with a hi-tech trend for its 2010-version. I have tested it for you.

Overview

Born from a look created in 1979, this chronograph takes up the aesthetical characteristics (steel horizontal gadroon case) and adds some modern touches: grade 5 titanium casing, hemstitched dial, bottom plate and oscillating weight with PVD finishing.
The whole being held in a casing with very actual sizes.

 

A dial with gorgeous finishing

Despite its 45 mm diameter, it turns out to be really comfortable, thanks to the rounded and curved lugs.
It can even be forgotten due to a contained weight (thanks to the titanium!).
The casing's finishing is astounding and the glass' curve is gorgeous.

The hemstitched dial gives to this piece a very technical aspect and a well-manufactured facet.
But it confers to the watch an overloaded aspect that harms the daytime readability.

This dial remains nevertheless harmonious regarding the layout of the different displays.

 

Despite its 45 mm diameter, it turns out to be really comfortable, thanks to the rounded and curved lugs.

The movement

The Piaget Polo FortyFive Chronograph is endowed with two small interesting complications: a flyback function for the chronograph (certainly more useful to the aviators than to the polo players) and a second time zone that can be adjusted through the push-button.

The whole is moved by a very beautiful 880P manufacture caliber, a column-wheel caliber (that can be seen through a dwell in the bottom plate), double barrel (but only for a 50 hour power reserve) and a small balance adjustable with a triovis system (so that it allows the setting of the spiral's length for the adjustment of the advance or lateness).

Moreover, the chronograph is equipped with a vertical clutch, which allows a very frank, accurate and smooth start.


On the contrary, the reset and the flyback are very firm.

The finishing of the movement is very meticulous, circular côtes de Genève, pearled bottom plate, angled bridge, blue-stained screws, Piaget emblem engraved on the oscillating weight.
Hence, the transparent back is justified.

 

This Polo FortyFive is moved by a very beautiful 880P manufacture caliber.

 

The strap

The titanium-folding buckle is massive and benefits a practical summer/winter setting thanks to basic push buttons – that allow to easily adjusting of one notch the rubber wisp of the strap inside of both sides of the buckle.

 
On the other hand, when purchasing it, the rubber strap is set by cutting the edges: no weight gain allowed!

 

 

 

Conclusion

To put it in a nutshell, this Piaget FortyFive Chronograph 2010 is a sports watch that gives a modern touch to the Piaget's range.
It will undoubtedly seduce the amateurs of original pieces and will be the favorite companion of the polo-player during rainy weather.

 

The +:

  • the hi-tech design
  • the high-quality finishing
  • the well-manufactured caliber
  • the comfort, in spite of the size

 

The –:

  • impossibility to wear another strap
  • the diurnal readability
  • the price
  • a not really discreet watch

 

Further information:

  • journalist's wrist = 17,5 cm

    I was there with my 10-year-old son, who got a little star-struck. Can't blame him, James to him is like Spielberg/Lucas and Harrison Ford all roelld into one!James of course was incredibly gracious and cool; he signed three of my son's favorite NES games (all of which James reviewed).I gave James copies of two movies I think he'll like. I don't expect him to review them (although you never know), but he means so much to my son, I just wanted to give him something back.Thanks James. You and Mike really are very talented, and nice guys to boot. So glad you're out there, doing what you love so that we can enjoy it too

    Just got back from the signing, Man I feel bad for James and Mike, they lkoeod so out of it from being there from 2 something PM to PAST 8pm than originally planned there was so many people!But I wanted to comment here and Thank all the guys involved with the Nerd, and James and Mike especially, for their endurance and love for their fans to stay later to let everyone who came have a chance to meet and shake the hands of these guys! Keep it up James your projects show alot of the love and hard work you put into them, I look forward to the Monster Movies you will hopefully release in DVD form down the road (like I mentioned to you at the signing!) And of course, More AVGN videos! Thanks again!
