Something New for the Ladies From Piaget, Featuring an Oversized Moon Phase Display
A ladies’ wristwatch with an extra-large moon phase display, the Limelight Stella is Piaget’s first complication watch developed from the ground up for the female wrist.
Piaget is a jeweller and watchmaker, making both complicated watches as well as fine jewellery. But it has not had a complicated watch specifically for ladies, until now. The Limelight Stella is powered by a new movement featuring an oversized moon phase display, a complication that’s as much about aesthetics as it is about the mechanics. And it’s also the first ladies watch that’s been unveiled in advance of Watches&Wonders, the annual exhibition that takes place in Hong Kong in late September 2015. The moon phase disc is a deep blue with a realistic depiction of the moon, along with stylised constellations. And the counterweight of the second hand is a star. Fourteen diamonds set in a chevron shape underline the moon phase, with another 126 diamonds set on the bezel.
Though the case is round, the dial is oval, a subtle twist that is most apparent from the diamonds on the bezel. Set on two rows at both three and nine o’clock, the diamonds narrow to a single row at the top and bottom. The Limelight Stella is rose gold and 36mm in diameter, with the calibre 584P movement inside. It’s automatic with a 42-hour power reserve, and like most of Piaget’s other movements, developed and made in-house. The Limelight Stella is priced at S$42,700 including 7% tax, equivalent to US$30,000.Back to top.
