22 June 2010

The Piaget polo team is carrying the name of Piaget into the most prestigious international tournaments. The team, captained by Marcos Heguy, has taken part in the most important events in the UK, and it has now completed its preparation for the country's premier tournament, the British Open Championship for the Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup.

Although a relatively new team, Piaget succeeded in qualifying - one of just eight teams to do so - for another event, the Queen's Cup, held in June. What's more, it emerged from the league phase of this competition undefeated, and passed the quarter-finals. In the semi-finals, in an epic struggle, they lost 11-9 against the Enigma squad.

The Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup, played at Cowdray Park Polo Club, has attracted twenty teams, drawing players from a dozen countries. It is one of the most important events in the world on the polo calendar. It begins today, 22 June 2010, and ends on 18 July.

The Piaget Polo FortyFive was unveiled in 2009 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the legendary Piaget Polo. The FortyFive is a titanium watch whose rugged design is combined with a superb movement. In 2010, the Maison introduced two new versions of the Polo FortyFive: one with an openworked dial further expressing the sports philosophy of the piece, and the Piaget Polo FortyFive Lady, a version for women.
