Under the spotlight: Piaget Limelight Gala
Retro remains resolutely contemporary in the world of haute horology at the moment, and Piaget continue the trend taking inspiration not from the 40s or 50s, but this time from what was known as the swinging 60s. Piaget adorned the elegant women of the time with dazzling jewellery watches.
The Limelight Gala collection draws on the look and feel from this fascinating and energetic period. The latest addition to the collection is the Limelight Gala, a watch with sensual curves and precious gem-setting, with a distinctive personality imbued with a sense of glamorous chic.
The round case is enhanced by two elegantly extended lugs and the eye catching nature of its silhouette is accentuated by a bezel set with a row of progressively sized brilliant-cut diamonds. The pure, understated dial features black Roman numerals matching the refined satin strap.
As if to demonstrate Piaget’s fully integrated watchmaking capabilities, the Limelight Gala watch was created entirely in house at the Manufacture Piaget from the initial sketch to the design right the way through to the shaping and finishing of the case.
The delightfully feminine Limelight Gala watch is a subtle heritage from the wild years of the 1960s.
