NEWS 4. PIAGET CELEBRATES 50 YEARS OF THE LIMELIGHT GALA
A chance to look back to the Piaget Society of the 1970s.
Launched in 1969, this collection is instantly recognisable for its generous curves and the asymmetrical lugs of its bezel, set with precious stones, one side stretching upwards and the other down, the Limelight Gala stands out with its unique audacious look. Dubbed by some as a “fashion watch” at the time of its creation, Limelight Gala set the tempo for the incredible spirit of freedom that reigned in the Maison.
Founded by Yves Piaget, “Piaget Society” is an international community from made up of sophisticated clients, actors, singers, writers and artists as Cary Grant, Sammy Davis Jr., Elizabeth Taylor, Jackie Kennedy and many more.
The dials of cuff watches and Swinging Sautoirs were covered in brightly coloured ornamental stones (malachite, opal, lapis lazuli, tiger-eye, etc.) and paired with textured solid gold bracelets. In 1973, barely four years after the iconic “21st Century Collection”, Piaget gave shape to the collection that would later become the Limelight Gala.
