The new 2021 best replica watch “panda dial” edition is an extension to the Polo Chronograph lineup, which has existed with an all blue or all grey dial. This is the first time Piaget replica has used a panda styled dial – with a silvered background and contrasting blue sub-dial on the bi-compax chronograph.
The luxury replica watches are limited to 888 pieces, and was announced together with another version in 18K white gold case, the first for Polo Chronograph. The WG version is set with 178 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 2.70 cts). Diamond-paved dial set with 286 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 1.0 ct) with blue counters.
The case, dial and hands
The case is the now iconic 1:1 fake Piaget Polo S case, with its cushion shape, wide bezel, and 42mm nominal diameter. The design was created by Yves G. Piaget in 1979, no doubt in response to the luxury steel sports copy watch success of the Gerald Genta designs with Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe earlier.
The bezel and case are treated to contrasting finishing using a juxtaposition of satin straight graining (horizontally on the bezel – more of this later) with a high polished sloped shoulder of the bezel. This polished shoulder continues to the upper case middle and lugs, but the sides of the case are finished in a brushed grain.
The chronograph pushers are nominally rectangular shape, with rounded corners, and are also polished. The crown features a corrugated surface for good grip when winding and setting the time. The Piaget Polo fake with grey dial is delivered with a matching blue rubber strap with a 3 leaf deployant buckle.
The dial carries the horizontal stripes which we first saw in the Swiss made copy Piaget Polo S, and closer to each other than the original 1979 design. These stripes fit in nicely with the horizontal grains of the bezel. This stripes are made with rules which are relief engraved guilloché, and play well with light to create a beautiful 3 dimensional aesthetic. The “PIAGET” nameplate and “AUTOMATIC” designation are printed on cartouches which are left unengraved. cheap fake Piaget also chose to leave the outermost perimeter without these stripes and had the seconds indices printed, so events can be timed with precision. A date aperture at 6 o’clock within a framed window completes the dial.
The movement: Piaget 1160P Blue Movement
The movement high-end Piaget Polo copy watch used is the 1160P Blue. The notation “Blue” signifies that the rotor is treated in matching blue hue of the sub-dial counters on the dial side.
The 1160P movement is a development of the 880P self-winding mechanical chronograph movement. The movement is rather thin, a Piaget specialty and has a thickness of only 5.72 mm. The chronograph functions is controlled by a column wheel, which is visible in the photograph above. The rest of the chronograph works are below the dial and not visible through the sapphire case back. A vertical clutch construction is opted, and offers jitter free activation of the chronograph. The feel of the pushers are smooth, and an even pressure is needed to engage for either start, stop or reset. The engagement is positive with a nice, soft click when it activates.
Finishing is considered to be par for the course at this price level. The Swiss movement fake Piaget coat-of-arms is engraved on the blue rotor, and the rest of the movement is finished de rigueur, with Côtes de Genève decorations, circular-grained mainplate, bevelled bridges, sunburst wheels and blued screws.
