All About Piaget’s Limelight Gala Watch

Designed for women, are known for their elegant and daring style, which draws on craftsmanship from the 1970s

Piaget’s Limelight Gala watches, designed for women, are known for their elegant and daring style, which draws on craftsmanship from the 1970s. The maison bought three Genevan workshops that specialise in gold work and gem-setting, the latter of which is a striking feature of the watch, coiling round it in a snake-like fashion. 

Asymmetry is also a hallmark of the design, which treads a fine line between being a watch and being jewellery. Ultimately, it is both. And it is the balance-spring set with diamonds that so unusually stretches out to create a unique design, crafted by the maison’s master craftsmen.

With a paved dial

Furthermore, the way the watch is created draws on the use of light to reflect the gems and showcase the contours of the gold watch. 

In 2014, the model evolved to include a model driven by a mechanical movement. And, some three years later, there came the 26mm Limelight Gala rose gold watch. 

Typically, Milanese mesh or refined satin is used to make the bracelets of these watches, so they are easily adjustable; rounded to fit the wrist perfectly
