Looking back at the 1960s, the world of high-end watches and jewellery was filled with imagination. Piaget spearheaded the trend of the time, transforming free inspiration into fascinating bright jewelry watches. The asymmetrical design of the 旖旎 curve outlines a rounded outline. The dazzling beautiful diamonds extend along the bezel to the lugs and merge with the gold chain, creating a period of glorious golden years. Piaget has taken a new inspiration from this antique jewelry watch to create a masterpiece of contemporary art that combines time art and jewelry aesthetics. In 2013, Piaget Limelight Gala was born.

The new member of Piaget Limelight Gala series is two limited-edition gemstone dials and a watch with a 430P ultra-thin manual winding movement. Since the 1960s, Piaget has built a super-thin movement, and has become more adept at setting gemstones on watch dials. Piaget specially chose the Limelight Gala series inspired by the Bone Watch in the 1960s, inlaid with precious opals on the watch face, showing Piaget’s spirit of professional watchmaking and jewellery creativity.

The new design also includes a watch equipped with a 430P ultra-thin manual winding movement, which is also the first time that the Limelight Gala series is equipped with a mechanical movement.
