Piaget Reveals Two New Timepieces: Polo Skeleton and Limelight Gala Aventurine

Piaget Dazzles with High-Jewelled Timepieces

It isn’t often that brands get to showcase both their technical prowess and their Métiers d’Arts skills, but with the new Piaget Polo Skeleton, this venerable Swiss brand does exactly that. The latest two novelty releases, coming in the form of the Polo Skeleton and Limelight Gala Aventurine house both impeccable movements and sleek diamond settings.

A magnificent showcase of the Swiss watchmaker’s mastery of combining high horology with fine jewellery, the Polo Skeleton is adorned with 1,746 brilliant-cut diamonds.

The other, the Limelight Gala Aventurine, is a celebration of the creativity and savoir-faire of Piaget’s innovative artisans set with 62 diamonds and a magical dial of a midnight sky lit by a constellation of twinkling stars.

The original Piaget Polo created back in 1979, was designed as an everyday watch representing the epitome of style and casual elegance. The new Piaget Polo Skeleton continues this legacy.

It features a 42mm white gold case with white gold, satin-finished bracelet, a 44-hour power reserve and water resistance of 30 metres.

True horology fans will be interested in this watch’s brilliant inner workings which features one of the world’s thinnest mechanical self-winding movements, the 1200S1 – only 2.4mm.

Based on Piaget’s famous ultra-thin automatic 1200P movement, a skeletonised version, the 1200S, took more than two years to create where only the essentials for timekeeping were kept.

From there, the 1200S underwent a further two and a half years of perfections and improvements until the next generation skeleton movement was born, the 1200S1.

The second Piaget release, the Limelight Gala Aventurine, is a call back to the famous Piaget Society parties of the 1970s. A powerful feminine icon, the watch offers that extra sparkle of extravagance that nods to the lavish parties attended by celebrities, artists, clients, and friends of the brand.

The 32mm white gold case adorned with 62 diamonds and a beautiful aventurine dial is paired with a white gold Milanese mesh bracelet.

The intricate bracelet is meticulously crafted over 100 hours by eight Piaget artisans and on the inside, the refined movement comes in the form of a self-winding calibre 501P1.

The Limelight Gala Aventurine is limited to 300 pieces, while the Polo Skeleton is only available by demand.
