“We are thrilled to be a part this truly unique and prestigious event,” states Larry Boland, President of Piaget NA. “World-class polo, combined with the glamour and sophistication of Aspen makes this a perfect fit for Piaget.” More than 700 of Aspen’s best and brightest turned out to watch the action and enjoy the festivities, along with Hollywood stars such as Zac Ephron.

Six teams in total — Piaget, Audi, Bombay Sapphire, Land Rover, Crestview Genetics and L’Hostaria — competed on specially raised Colorado polo ponies, playing in beautiful Wagner Park right in the heart of Aspen. Piaget’s team, consisting of Nacho Figueras, Nicolas Roldan and Marc Ganzi, made it to the final match on Sunday to face off against the Audi team of Melissa Ganzi, Kris Kampsen and Juan Bollini. In an intense match that had the crowd on their feet, Roldan scored two goals for Piaget and Ganzi scored one. It was not enough to keep Audi from claiming a 5-3 victory with Bollini scoring three goals and teammate Kampsen scoring twice. Juan Bollini’s superior play over the two-days resulted in a total of five goals and earned him the tournament’s MVP honor. He was awarded with a new titanium and stainless steel Piaget Polo FortyFive timepiece.
