Piaget launches the Limelight Gala collection

by 17 October 2013

What happens when one of the world's most beloved actresses unveils Piaget's major launch of the year, the Limelight Gala watch collection? Limelight has been Piaget's icon for years, combining glamour and gem-setting expertise in time-honoured designs. Now, Limelight Gala writes a new chapter in Piaget's history with Gong Li as the brand ambassador, demonstrating watches that marry art, design and jewellery savoir-faire.

Limelight Gala's distinct design spotlights tapered lugs set with progressively sized brilliant-cut diamonds, a superbly legible dial and an unmistakable Piaget logo at the three o'clock position. All six references are powered by the Piaget 690P quartz movement.

In one campaign image, the beautiful Chinese actress showcases an 18-carat white gold Limelight Gala watch with a 32-millimetre case, set with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds, featuring a silvered dial with black Roman numerals and an elegant black satin strap.

In another image, she wears the high jewellery timepiece – also in 18-carat white gold – with a case set with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds, a dial paved with 228 brilliant-cut diamonds, and 451 more on the bracelet and integrated clasp. Four additional references, two more in 32 millimetres and two in 38, complete the stunning new Limelight Gala collection.
