For the 2012 high-goal season in Palm Beach, veteran players Miguel Novillo-Astrada and Juan Bollini were joined by rising 6-goaler, Jason Crowder with team captain Melissa Ganzi completing the match-tested foursome.

In January and February the Piaget Polo Team played in the Joe Barry Memorial and the Ylviasker Cup 20-goal tournaments at the International Polo Club – Palm Beach. Piaget took home the trophy at the Ylvisaker Cup final where they defeated their rival the Audi Polo Team.

Piaget also competed in the 2012 Royal Salute CV Whitney Cup and the USPA Piaget Gold Cup 26-goal tournaments. For these games, Piaget fielded a new line-up of players from the Grand Champions Polo Club. For the CV Whitney Cup the roster included American polo star Nic Roldan, Brazil's Rodrigo Andrade and Argentina's Alejandro Novillo-Astrada. Team captain Melissa Ganzi completed the foursome. This Piaget line-up, known as Piaget Black won the Butler Handicap subsidiary of the USPA Piaget Gold Cup.

The Piaget Polo Team entered a reconfigured 26-goal line-up for the USPA Piaget Gold Cup. For this tournament Marc Ganzi played the #1 position with brothers Nico and Gonzalito Pieres playing #2 and #3 respectively. American polo's Jeff Hall played the back position at #4 for Piaget in this tournament.

And if that was not enough polo action...Piaget also fielded a team for the 12-goal Bronze Trophy tournament. This tournament was played at the historic Gulfstream Polo Club in Lake Worth. Melissa Ganzi lead this team with her 20-goal teammates Juan Bollini and Jason Crowder. Bollini's son Juancito Bollini rounded out the foursome.

To cap their winning season, Piaget won the USPA President's Cup 8-goal tournament in late April at the International Polo Club Palm Beach. Melissa Ganzi, Juan Bollini, Juan Bollini, Jr. and Leo Mandelbaum defeated Chuck Pugley's Lazy-P Polo team to take home the trophy in this season-ending match.
