I was greatly shocked to hear the news when Piaget released the new and Chronograph watches in July last year. Piaget replica has a sports watch in the FortyFive already, but a new luxury sports watch in steel seems nothing that I was expecting from them. But with the benefit of hindsight, a luxury sports watch in steel is something that Piaget really requires. The new Piaget and Chronograph watches are both curial and significant for the brand because, to begin with, their designs and layouts are more attractive to younger audiences. Secondly, they seemed rather more affordable than Piaget’s more typical ultra-thin and dressy watches. Therefore, these tips still exist in our mind that I check out the new Piaget Chronograph watch as well as the Chronograph in black ADLC with a rubber bracelet, the non-chronograph version of which we also included.
Before I begin with the topic of the Chronograph watch, it is worth making a quick recap of the new Piaget fake watches. Unofficially, the “S” stands for steel and sports. But perhaps more importantly, the design of these new watches has generated much chatter online, generally because of their resemblance to Patek Philippe’s Nautilus and Aquanaut. But I think the main reason is that most people are unaware of the fake Piaget’s earlier watch from the late ’70s. If you are familiar with the vintage, you’ll immediately see that the new replica watches have more in common with the vintage than Patek Philippe’s Nautilus and Aquanaut.
That said, I have to admit that there are similarities between and the two similar-looking Patek Philippe sports watches, but, in the flesh, they have a much more distinctive design than what press photos would suggest.
On the wrist, the Chronograph exudes considerable presence owing 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 quite enough for a sports watch.
In the case of the Chronograph watch, I have to say that the entire dial is pretty well executed for its price. There’s a high level of finishing exhibited here. The applied indices are beveled to help catch the light and are neatly applied with Super-Luminova, as are the hour and minute hands.
The Chronograph is driven by Piaget’s 1160P movement, which has all the features you would expect from a modern high-end chronograph movement. More importantly, is the fact that there’s a display case back and that the movement is quite nicely finished. The main plate also features circular Côtes de Geneve with beveled bridges and blued screws. And, naturally, the black model has an anthracite balance wheel.
