Designed in 18kt yellow gold the present limelight example is in perfect condition with no signs of wear , sharp hallmarks and serial numbers throughout further confirming the excellent preservation. Additionally, the timepiece has approximately 42 brilliant white round cut diamonds totally all set in a gradual pattern run along the textured gold bracelet as it surrounds on either side the beautifully reflective tiger eye hard stone dial giving this piece a total sense of mysticism and allure that Piaget was so well known for exuding as a brand. Additionally it is also important to note the extra attention to detail that this example has with yellow gold inlaid roman numeral dial which further indicates the extra special workmanship that was applied to the current creation.

The use of Tiger eye hard stone with 18kt yellow textured gold is one of the firm’s most iconic and striking color combinations making the present time piece exotic as well as noticeably different from other timepieces of this period. As the light reflects off a tiger eye dial beams of oranges, yellows, and blacks shine across it as the stone interacts with the sunlight.

Additionally The present example is designed with the firm’s original design for the limelight which was introduced in the 70s and is one of the most iconic designs that the famous firm Piaget is known for today. Referenced as the vintage concept design nicknamed the “Limelight” this design has been a pillar to the brand which has been responsible for producing some of the most extravagantly fashion forward design concepts in jewelry timepieces from the 70s onward.

Specifically the limelight reference has had a major impact on the brand as a whole and also transformed over the years to become one of the firm’s foundational concepts and today differs greatly from its original design exhibited by this present limelight from the 1970s making all that more rare for the sophisticated Piaget collector as it is also one of the firm’s very first series of this reference.

Today, Piaget has innovated the line further and created a modern limelight which differs greatly from the original concept but even more interesting Piaget has borrowed from this original 1970s design of the limelight to re-introduce its concept as a design reference known as the Gala which retails for about $75-100,000 today depending on the stone and metal variations and incorporates the same design and diamond setting concept for a cuff bracelet watch as it also additionally displays the asymmetrical diamond lugs which make this present timepiece not only a stunning piece when worn, but also a unique part of Piaget history to collect.
