GLAMOUR, ALWAYS AND FOREVER
Designed to enhance the beauty of the female wrist, the Extremely Lady watch is a condensed form of the creative, artisanal and artistic skills that Piaget has mastered for decades.
Here, there is light everywhere. The gentle light conveyed by pink gold, the dazzling light produced by diamonds and the changing light of mother-of-pearl. Extremely Lady is a small watch that attracts the eye, a gem bringing beauty to the wrist while discreetly telling the time. With this elegant model, Piaget wanted to put the insouciance and glamour of the 1960s back into the spotlight, but also the creative daring that was so abundant in that golden era.
The Extremely Lady watch case has an oval silhouette – somewhat rare in watchmaking – and measures 27x22mm. This pink-gold setting is crowned by a bezel set with diamonds – 24 brilliant-cut precious stones forming a sparkling band with light rebounding on the white mother-of-pearl dial. Two stick-shaped pink-gold hands move around this iridescent surface without indices to display the hours and minutes in complete simplicity.
The element that makes for the charm of this Piaget is without doubt the pink-gold strap with a slide clasp. Textured like dense weave, it evokes the rich thickness of tweed with an apparently anarchic graphic design, but which is in fact perfectly mastered. The motif is known as “natural fur” and has been painstakingly made by hand using a small tool similar to a chisel and an engraving technique that cuts tiny notches in the strap itself.
The Extremely Lady model is driven by the calibre 56P, a quartz movement designed by Piaget.
