 The exclusivity and luxuriance of this masterful timepiece supersedes any claim that a watch is not jewelry.

Within the hustle and bustle of our busy lives, fashion has revolutionized the way we portray our self-image. The image we crave is set when we claim a certain look. In the case of Piaget, the image is set when we set the time on our new magnificent timepiece, which has at long last answered the age-old question: Is it jewelry, or is it a watch? With the latest line of exclusive pieces gracing Piaget’s new Limelight Collection, the distinction between the two is moot.

Perhaps this is why the prestigious watch manufacturer Piaget started out making timeless watch pieces and has since added a jewelry line to the pristine collection. As one of the oldest Swiss time makers, the ideals that stand behind their brand have always been style and quality, and this stands just as true today.

Certainly the extension of Piaget’s vision precedes their new line of jewelry: The Limelight Collection, which includes diamond-encrusted watches, necklaces, rings and bracelets. The ultimate piece? The 18-carrat white gold Tonneau-shaped watch. Being one of only five pieces made, the watch literally drips with diamonds-an astonishing 72 baguette-cut diamonds (5.8 carats) and 446 brilliant-cut diamonds (6.7 carats) make this watch the ultimate in luxury pieces. With all of these diamonds gracing the face, one has to wonder how it would be possible to make this watch any more decadent, but Piaget manages to– by adding 31.8 carats more to be exact! The bracelet alone is set with 504 baguette-cut diamonds set in white gold. An astounding $898,000 will make this watch your own. The exclusivity and luxuriance of this masterful timepiece supersedes any claim that a watch is not jewelry.
