Piaget Shines at Art Dubai: Limelight Gala's Elegance and Innovation

Extravagant, yet ever so elegant... For over half a century, the stunning, shimmering curves of the Limelight Gala have set a tempo that is resolute “Extraleganza”. 

Hovering between a watch and a piece of jewelry, this quintessential watch even now tailors itself to the everyday, while bringing allure to spectacular evenings. 

Piaget Shines at Art Dubai: Limelight Gala's Elegance and Innovation

As celebrations begin to mark Maison’s 150thanniversary, since its creation at the heart of the village of La Côte-Aux-Fées at the hands of the visionary Georges-Édouard Piaget, it is this surprising meeting of minds that Piaget has chosen to explore with a highly contemporary designer brimming with personality. 

A leading figure in the contemporary Arabic jewelry world, since 2013, Shamsa Alabbar has been transposing the ancient codes of the Arabian Peninsula into a series of graphic pieces in which calligraphy and typography take on a new dimension. 

Hemmed with gold and diamonds: this is the image that the designer is now applying to the dial of a limited-edition Limelight Gala watch.

While the meshwork, painstakingly completed by hand in Piaget’s workshops, and the lush, asymmetrical waltz of diamonds immediately bring to mind codes of the Limelight Gala, the gaze is irresistibly drawn to this enchanting dial, which is utterly one of a kind. 

Inspired by the Token motif, which the designer has made her signature by weaving it through her jewelry collection, the dial also pays homage to Arabic typography and the iconic mashrabiya. Much more than a simple arabesque, the dial distills the charm of a culture that is, now more than ever, part of the zeitgeist. 

“Piaget has always been a brand that captivated me with its unique designs and exquisite craftsmanship. It holds cherished memories of the most significant moments in my life. Whenever I visited the Piaget flagship store at The Dubai Mall, I couldn’t help but be mesmerized by their creations, particularly their watches.

The opportunity to design a dial for the Gala watch feels like a surreal dream come true”, adds Shamsa Alabbar. This collaboration will be presented at in Art Dubai from the 1st to the 3rd of March 2024, featuring on Piaget’sstand to celebrate gold work, one of the cornerstones of Piaget’s success.

A Legacy of Excellence: Piaget's Journey from 1874 to Today

Piaget epitomizes daring creativity a quality that has continued to permeate through the Maison since its beginnings in 1874. From his first workshop in La Côte-aux- Fées, Georges-Edouard Piaget devoted himself to crafting high-precision movements in a feat that formed the very foundations of our pioneering name.

In the late 1950s, Piaget unveiled the ultra-thin movements that would later become Maison’s trademark and the cornerstone of the Altiplano collection. 

As a true innovator of the watch and jewelry world, Piaget strongly believed in creativity and artistic values. It is within the walls of our Ateliersde extraordinaire where master artisans continue to harness rare skills that have been preserved and perfected from generation to generation, transforming old, stones, and precious gems into dazzling works of art. 

Through its pursuit of masterful craftsmanship, the Maison has created emblems of daring excellence channeled into its collections including Altiplano, Piaget Polo, Limelight Gala, Possession, Piaget Sunlight, Piaget Rose, and Extremely Piaget.
