Sensuality, femininity, elegance: once again this year, Maison Piaget dazzles us with extraordinary new pieces. Designed for inspiring and active women, these timepieces embellish the muses for whom they were created. With a vintage design taking its cues from the 1970s, the two new pieces from the Limelight Gala collection make tsavorites and sapphires dance around the dial for a bewitching spectacle. Bright, elegant, bold… The Limelight Gala Rainbow and the Limelight Gala Mother-of-Pearl come in limited editions of 300 pieces. A closer look at these unique creations.
An extraordinary design
Powered by a self-winding mechanical movement, the Limelight Gala has been captivating watch lovers for nearly half a century. From the vibrant shades of the Rainbow to the elegant discretion of the Mother-of-Pearl, these two small models will delight amazing women. Their secret? The cut-down setting that magnifies the brilliance of the stones. Obtaining large quantities of stones in gradually increasing shades and sizes is an extremely tedious task in which Piaget excels. The watchmaker draws much of its inspiration from nature: foliage, flowers, bark, leather grains and much more adorn Piaget bracelets and dials.
Goldwork, setting… The look of Piaget timepieces is easily recognisable. Precision, meticulous attention to detail: the Maison’s bracelets and dials unsurprisingly stand out at the forefront of the watchmaking scene.
Featuring exceptional technique and authenticity, the two models offer women a choice between extravagance, boldness and strength, and elegance, refinement and distinction.
Handmade gold bracelets and dials
What makes Piaget unique? It is one of the last watch manufacturers to master the ancestral art of handcrafting gold bracelet. Similar to the making of haute-couture clothing, which is meticulous, delicate and incredibly technical, the making of a gold bracelet by hand is an invaluable heritage of the watchmaking of yesteryear that Piaget has strived to perpetuate. This traditional art from the 1960s has helped to build the reputation of a contemporary watch brand that has managed to revive centuries-old knowhow.
With a handcrafted and hand-engraved dial, each watch is a unique piece. It takes two hours to complete the decoration on the dial, while the engraving on the bracelet requires eight hours of work.
The Limelight Gala Rainbow and the Limelight Gala Mother-of-Pearl bring Piaget boldness to the wrist. Available in two variations, the collection adapts to wearers and can be worn in all kinds of situations. Prefer delicate and discreet? The 26 mm Mother-of-Pearl model with its white alligator strap is the perfect choice. In search of vibrancy and boldness? Go for the 32 mm Rainbow model and its 18-carat rose gold bracelet!
