Since the late 1950s, Piaget has distinguished itself in the field of jewellery watches and has consistently proven its ability to offer stylish variations on how its models are worn: its secret watches, cuff watches and sautoir watches have had a lasting impact on the world of feminine watchmaking. Epitomising this rich creative and conceptual heritage, the Limelight Magic Hour, Limelight Twice and Limelight Dancing Light watches respectively launched in 2007, 2009 and 2010 have become the brand’s feminine icons. Today, Limelight Blooming Rose has just blossomed in the garden of the Yves Piaget rose.
Limelight Blooming Rose unfurls its delicate corallae like a bouquet of diamonds gracing the golden flowerbed beneath. Like a barely open rosebud, four gem-set petals compose pure, gently cambered curves ideally suited to daily wear. And then, as if at dusk to herald an enchanting evening, the flower blooms entirely to reveal four new diamond-paved petals. The upper case of the watch swivels 45° as desired, thanks to an invisible mechanism (see slideshow on top of the page).
Limelight Blooming Rose distils 269 grain-set diamonds (2.5 carats) and is powered by a Piaget 56P movement. The case is crafted from white gold while the black lacquered dial matches the satin strap fitted with a gem-set pin buckle.
