Piaget Extraordinary Lights High Jewellery Collection

The Brand presents two new watches from its collection of High Jewellery with extraordinary lights

Celestial Dance

As the light-filled spectacle slows and fades, the Piaget Society comes together once more, forever connected by the magnificence of the wonders they have witnessed together. The Celestial Dance watch pays tribute to these memories, mimicking the night sky in the most skilful of marquetry designs created by the artist Rose Saneuil, who lends her technical brilliance to the decoration of the dial.

Rose approaches her marquetry work as an artist would their paintings or miniatures, creating tiny vistas as if one were looking at a landscape on a minute scale. Presented as a limited edition of 8 watches, each taking more than 50 hours to realize, the unique mosaic-like marquetry effect is created for the dials using contrasts of materials unusual to jewellery: blue straw, leather, parchment, elytron and hornbeam.

This multi-material micro marquetry, a signature and specialty of Rose Saneuil, requires immense patience and dexterity. Employing an ‘element by element’ technique, each piece of material is individually cut according to the initial design, and then delicately placed and secured into position using a microscope, such is the small scale required for such work. Finally, the dial is highlighted with diamonds set around the bezel and also gracing another Piaget signature, the off-centre hoursminutes counter and the flying tourbillon of the ultra-thin 670P Piaget movement.

Dancing Aurora

The limited edition Dancing Aurora watch features the trademark engineering of an ultra-thin calibre with a tourbillon movement and carriage, so characteristic of Piaget’s pioneering achievements since their craftsmen first developed this sleekest of styles in the 1960s. The challenge then became the creation of a dial worthy of such a pinnacle of luxury, and since its debut in 1964, the use of hardstone marquetry, a meticulous Métier d’Art, has been used to exceptional effect. Here white diamonds are set as if undulating and blowing in the wind, swirling and rippling across a face set with malachite marquetry on a tiny scale.

Testing the talent of even the greatest master artisans, each plate of hardstone is specifically cut into a slice barely one millimetre thick, and perfectly set into its precise position. The whole is then polished to perfection, revealing the distinctive markings and colour of each piece, the nuances and interaction with light ensuring that no two dials are ever alike. Each new interpretation of this art brings with it a legacy dating back over decades, and in this case, the Dancing Aurora watch is only produced as a limited edition of 8.
