Piaget Limelight City Watch For Women
New from the Limelight collection is the Limelight City watch. This throw-back style model is directly inspired by a similar cushion-cased Piaget watch from the 1960s - an era which is hot in terms of watch style these days. The sideways cushion style is quite flattering to the wrist, and the mixture of brush and polished surfaces (with the added diamond decoration) feels classic, and uncommon in women's watches. A lot of gold from the 1960s was textured in strange ways - as though people were simply tired of mere mirror polished surfaces. The case is in either 18k pink or white gold, with over 100 diamonds included on the dial and dial. There is a sort of bulbous friendliness to the design that would otherwise feel a bit cold.
Inside the watch is a Piaget manufacture made 524P automatic movement, that is visible through a sapphire caseback window. The watch comes on a few strap color choices - each being leather or reptile. The strap buckle has even more diamonds on it for decoration. As a compliment to today's fashionable mature women, the Limelight City is an intriguing choice. Timeless in style yes, but clearly a token nod to another era.
