The new Limelight Gala Precious Sapphire Gradient (Ref. G0A45163) celebrates the signature design of the Limelight Gala collection with a hand-engraved gold bracelet and dial that are highlighted by 20 large diamonds (approx. 1.46 cts) and 22 sapphires (approx. 4.01 cts), set in a subtle gradient of blue.
The white gold bracelet on this new timepiece has been hand-engraved by a master engraver within our Manufacture and features the Palace décor, one of Piaget’s most iconic motifs, which requires eight hours of work for a single bracelet. The dial is also made of white gold and is engraved using the same Palace décor technique. It takes an additional two hours to complete the engraving on the dial and it is always carried out by the same engraver who decorates the bracelet to ensure a uniform design. To let the décor shine through, the dial is covered in translucent blue Grand Feu enamel.
Finding the perfect colour gemstones for this timepiece is also one of the most challenging operations, as it involves sampling large quantities of gemstones to ensure the perfect colour match, a task made even more complex given the large progressive size of the stones and the high gem quality standards of the Maison. To magnify the brilliance of the stones, Piaget’s gem-setters have expertly set the gemstones by hand, using the “Serti Descendu” technique.
This timepiece is available as a numbered edition.
