The Piaget Limelight Stella watch is known for being the Swiss luxury watchmaker’s first-ever complication made exclusively for women, and its latest edition makes a striking statement in bold scarlet – a colour associated with joy, passion and courage (and suitably apt for Chinese New Year plus other festive occasions too).
Featuring a large moon phase in red paired with a crimson alligator leather strap, the ultra-thin 36mm 18K rose gold timepiece has 14 sparkling brilliant-cut diamonds on the mother-of-pearl dial and another 126 brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel.
Horology enthusiasts will be pleased to know that it is powered by an in-house 584P self-winding movement (marvel at it through the sapphire crystal back). What this means: While a standard moon phase lags one day behind every two and a half years, the Calibre 584P ensures that this elegant watch only requires a one-day correction after 122 years. Now that’s pure precision.
The Limelight Stella ($58,500) will be exclusively available in China and Hong Kong in February, and the rest of the world from April.
