New Piaget Limelight Dedicated to Paris and New York

Mar 10, 2008
The new Piaget Limelight watch and jewelry collection drops the light to the aesthetic worlds of the two most famous and attractive cities and fashion capitals in the world - Paris and New York. The cities that excited the imagination of the brand's creative personalities and craftsmen make one feel their own distinctive styles - irresistibly urban and unmistakably feminine at the same time.

Paris, city of lovers and lights, inspired Piaget to create a unique collection that would remind of its two key landmarks - the Eiffel Tower and the Grande Roue (Ferris wheel) on the Place de la Concorde.

The luminous structure of the Eiffel Tower, the universal emblem of Paris since 1889, is reflected by a Piaget magnificent collection of diamond watch and jewelry creations. The playful and enchanting Ferris wheel has provided inspiration for some fascinating variations of secret watches and jewelry in motion, demonstrating tiny diamond baskets suspended from a rotating deck, clearly hinting at Ferris wheel's notable gondolas.

The Piaget Polo Tourbillon Relatif in tribute to the City of Paris reveals an 18K white gold case. The dial of the timepiece fascinates by its grand feu enameling based on the champleve technique. It touches imagination by an aerial view of the 12 avenues that radiate from the Arc de Triomphe together with their names.

The minute hand, with the centre of rotation in the centre of the timepiece, makes one complete rotation per hour. It features the suspended tourbillon carriage spinning once per minute on its own axis.

The profile of the watch's case at 3 o'clock offers the view of some historical monuments of Paris - you will be enchanted to see the Louvre and its Pyramid, the Ferris wheel, the Eiffel tower, and the River Seine. The winding crown, right at the centre of the Ferris wheel, is set with a diamond highlighting the city's beauty.

The profile at 9 o'clock demonstrates the Jardin des Tuileries, the monument of the National Assembly, the Grand Palais, the Arc de Triomphe and the Arche de la Defense.

In the heart of the Piaget Polo Tourbillon Relatif there beats the Manufacture Piaget 608P mechanical hand-wound flying tourbillon movement that offers the 70-hour power reserve.

The 18K white gold and black enameled case-back reveals 'Paris' engraving. The Piaget watch embraces the wrist with a black alligator leather strap fitted with an 18K white gold folding clasp.

The Piaget Polo Tourbillon Relatif in tribute to the City of Paris is released in a numbered and limited edition of three pieces.


Inspired by a sensual couture style of the city of Paris, Piaget has created a one-of-a-kind cuff watch, an emblematic item in the history of the brand. The diamond-paved watch seems to literally wrap the wrist in light.

The Piaget Paris Architecture theme watch spotlights an 18K white gold case, bracelet and integrated clasp.

The majestic timepiece is set with 620 brilliant-cut diamonds and 8 pear-cut diamonds. The 18K white gold dial is set with 64 brilliant-cut diamonds. The Piaget jewelry watch is powered by the in-house 56P quartz movement.


Greatly inspired by architectural New York, Piaget designers have focused their attention on two American dream icons - the Chrysler Building and the Statue of Liberty in New York to create an imposing jewelry set of a necklace and earrings.

As a motif for a pendant, earrings or a watch dial, the graphic design of the seven rays of the Statue of Liberty's diadem symbolizes the seven oceans. The iconic monument presented as a gift from France was inaugurated in 1886, having marked the anniversary of the independence of the United States. The Statue of Liberty was created by Bartholdi in cooperation with Gustave Eiffel for its metal frame.

The 18K white gold case of the Piaget New York Architecture theme is completely paved with 273 brilliant-cut diamonds. The black dial of the timepiece is set with 99 brilliant-cut diamonds.

In the heart of the watch there beats the Manufacture Piaget 530P automatic movement. The Piaget watch embraces the wrist with a black satin strap equipped with an18K white gold folding clasp set with 24 brilliant-cut diamonds.

The New York-inspired creations will make you think of the black and white colors of a classic New York evening, with exquisite bows emphasizing the discreet elegance of the watches and jewelry pieces.

The couture theme is revealed with help of a black satin and diamond bow hiding a 'secret' watch with a diamond-pave cover that opens discreetly to show the time.

The New York Couture theme is a 'secret' cuff watch that reveals an 18K white gold case, cover paved with 119 brilliant-cut diamonds. The black dial of the timepiece spotlights hour-markers set with 6 brilliant-cut diamonds.

The Piaget watch is equipped with a Piaget 56P quartz movement. The black satin strap forming a bow is fitted with a pin buckle set with 30 brilliant-cut diamonds.


The Piaget dazzling and daring creations dedicated to Paris and New York are destined to help you discover two remarkably powerful urban identities, two fascinating worlds of aesthetic and architectural intensity, famous for their inimitably glamorous style and their legendary monuments.
