Piaget unveils new watches of Limelight collection

First published: 20-09-2010

Watch maker Piaget has revealed three new timepieces to go with its Limelight collection, which could well appeal to women looking for an elegant model.

Two of these timepieces are original designs from the company, offering a unique way of reading the time, while the third may look like many chronograph-style watches already on the market, but is backed up by a gem-set design, Watch Luxus has reported.

None of the models have confirmed names yet, although the first in the new range has been donned as the "secret" watch due to the fact that it looks like a dazzling bracelet until a finger is pressed against a mechanism to reveal the time. Once read, the time display disappears behind an array of diamonds.

The watch face can be seen on the second timepiece but it again suggests more of a jewellery accessory, complete with even more stunning diamonds, than that of a wristwatch. This is due to the fact that this part of the watch is almost hidden behind an open-zip display.

Piaget has announced the new watches after recently been crowned with the best women's timepiece at the inaugural La Nuit de l'Horlogerie event in Monaco.
