PIAGET LIMELIGHT GALA AUTOMATIC TIMEPIECE COLLECTION
Piaget introduces an automatic movement into its Limelight Gala, a first for the collection, and the start of a brand-new chapter in the Limelight Gala story.
September 2, 2020
The Piaget Limelight Gala automatic timepiece collection is a celebration of extraordinary women the world over – women who are creative, inspiring, empowering, and independent.
Piaget is now launching the new Limelight Gala 32mm automatic watch with five stunning models, all of which feature the Maison’s manufacture self-winding 501P movement and an exhibition sapphire crystal caseback, attesting to Piaget’s incredible watchmaking know how.
The first two models are adorned with gold Milanese mesh bracelets that are reminiscent of historic bracelets crafted in the 1950s. Piaget never lost this unique know-how and each bracelet is crafted just as it was seventy years ago. Each bracelet starts life as a gold bar, which the artisan then works into tiny gold threads that are twisted, weaved, and squeezed by hand, one by one, taking over 35 hours to complete. The bracelet is perfectly integrated into the case, giving the impression that it is a natural extension of the asymmetrical lugs and the case of the watch. In addition to the stunning aesthetic, Piaget’s Milanese mesh bracelets are also extremely supple and comfortable on the wrist, feeling almost like a second skin.
There are two versions – one in white gold and the other in rose gold – that come on an elegant black alligator strap. These models are also adorned with an array of brilliant-cut diamonds that accentuate the two asymmetrical lugs and make this collection and its owner truly stand out from the crowd.
Last, but not least, the Piaget Limelight Gala 32mm Automatic is also available with a snow-set dial. The snow setting technique is particularly complex as the gem setter has to calculate the position of every single diamond, all of which differ in size. The snow-paved dial captures and reflects the light in an extraordinary way that will make the owner of this timepiece truly shine.
