The pinnacle of casual chic that marked a whole generation, the Piaget Polo 861C701 is one of the most recognizable models in the history of this company. To own this watch is not owing a piece of horological history, but a significant value in gold. This watch has thousands of dollars just in gold value at the current market price. Much of our asking price on this timepiece is cushioned by this solid investment.
I also encourage most of my clients to invest in the classics. The modern day watches are merely manufactured versions of the originals. You’ll be hard pressed to find on in the condition of this very watch. The Piaget Polo 861C701 has survived well past the gold rush when many of these models were melted down during the early and mid 2000’s. I like to think that my job is to protect and preserve history to share with you, the next owner of this fine timepiece.

Additional history and company information:
THE BEGINNING – 1874
In the Swiss Jura mountains at over 1000 meters altitude, sits the small village of La Côte-aux-Fées. This is where Georges-Édouard Piaget ignited the spirit of Piaget.
THE PIAGET DYNASTY
Georges-Édouard Piaget felt a passion for watchmaking from a young age, in 1874 at only 19 he set up his first workshop on the family farm. Here, he dedicated himself to creating high precision movements and components. Even in these early days, his motto “always do better than necessary” is what pushed him to have a self-surpassing attitude that would continue to motivate Piaget today. From La Côte-aux-Fées to the world, from the farm to the Atelier, what drives Piaget remains the same, a dedication to excellence.
