Georges Edouard Piaget set up his first workshop in 1874 on his family’s farm in the Jura Mountains of Switzerland creating mechanical movements for already established luxury watch companies. In 1911 Piaget’s son took over the business and finally in 1943, the brand Piaget was created and the company started designing and producing its own watches. It didn’t take long for Piaget watches to become highly desired luxury timepieces, especially and specifically in the field of jewelry watches.
In 1988 Piaget fell under what is now known as the Richemont Group and in 1990 released its first jewelry line called Possession. Then came the Limelight collection which was all about Hollywood glitz and glamour and which just had three new “secret” watches added to it. These new additions have some serious sparkle and are a perfect example of what jewelry watches are. Made from 18 karat white gold, with a bracelet crafted from five gold ribbons, and over 400 hundred different shaped diamonds, like pear, baguette and round cut, these women’s watches will take your breath away.
The Piaget Limelight Exceptional Pieces watch, model number G0A34133, is called “secret” because the dial is revealed when the center of the cover is pressed. Another 78 diamonds surround the dial. From start to finish, this haute joaillerie jewelry watch takes over 870 hours to create, with 200 of these hours being dedicated to setting the approximately 57 carats of diamonds that adorn just the case and bracelet.
In business for over 130 years, Piaget knows what those who seek high-end luxury watches and jewelry want. There are now eight collections of men’s watches and women’s watches, which represent the evolution and continued creativity that Piaget was founded on. Any of these collections are the perfect example of what a jewelry watch is.
