Piaget unveils some of its PRE Watches & Wonders novelties for this year and starts with an amazing Limelight Gala timepiece.

From the case to the dial, the bracelet to the gem-setting, each Limelight Gala timepiece is brought to life thanks to the talents of Piaget’s artisans who never stop innovating.

The name of the collection evokes the famous Piaget Society and its fabulous parties  where celebrities, artists, clients, and friends of the brand would gather to share joyful moments. Initiated in the 1970s, the Piaget Society came to life at a time when creative imagination was at its height. This is when Piaget created jewellery watches with extended lugs.

Today, the Limelight Gala collection draws on a wealth of inspiration from this fascinating period and has firmly established itself as a feminine icon.

The Limelight Gala design is more than just a shape; its asymmetrical lugs, cambered case, and expert setting of diamonds are the signature style of the collection, which is made for free-spirited women whose radiance shines effortlessly. More than a timepiece, the Limelight Gala is a statement. More than  jewellery, it  is  the beginning of a story, where each creation becomes one with its keeper and they shine as one.

Housed in a 32mm white gold case adorned with swirls of 62 diamonds set on two elongated lugs, the Limelight Gala Aventurine features a magical aventurine dial. A  type of glass dating back to 17th century Venice and the famous glass-makingbquarter of Murano, aventurine includes the addition of copper oxide to glass, which mimics the stars in the galaxy. As a fitting tribute, the origins of the word aventurine, come from the Italian for “adventure”.

The Limelight Gala Aventurine is not only beautiful on the outside, its refinement continues on the inside with a manufacture, self-winding Calibre 501P1.

The sparkle of aventurine and diamonds is paired with a sophisticated white gold Milanese mesh bracelet. Crafted with the same refinement and creative extravagance as an haute couture gown, this intricate bracelet takes over 100 hours of craftmanship by no less than eight of Piaget’s artisans. It all starts with one gold  thread, which is then shaped in a spiral and weaved together to create a supple fabric of gold. Each bracelet is formed by 366  spirals and a sliding buckle, to provide comfort and an extraordinary flexibility.

The collection is limited to 300 pieces.
