Piaget’s women’s range returns in vivid cherry colours, on a cuff bracelet or paved with diamonds. The rotating bezel is as addictive as ever.

With its rotating bezel, free-spinning yet fixed in position around the dial, The Piaget Possession echoes her spirit — at full liberty, anchored only by her time and her will. In 2018, the captivating Piaget Possession watches erupted in a profusion of colour, taking on a full palette of interchangeable coloured straps and bracelets as well as exceptional ornamental stone dials of lapis lazuli, carnelian, turquoise and malachite.

This year, the collection is enriched with temptingly vivid shades of cherry. A quartet of Piaget Possession watches are presented with deep cherry-pink straps of alligator leather. Two of them come with matching pink dials with diamond hour markers. These have 18k pink-gold cases and diamond-set rotating bezels, emphasising the fire and sparkle of the strong feminine spirit. The pink-gold models come in a diameter of 29mm and another of 34mm. The other two Piaget Possession watches in this quartet are in white gold, with fully paved cases and dials. These epitomise the sheer brilliance of the Maison’s jewellery prowess and shining commitment towards using the very best stones available.

A high-jewellery model in white gold further showcases the rarefied extremes of this in-house savoir-faire, featuring a fully paved dial and case as well as a diamond-paved bracelet. The diamond river bracelet — so called because of the glittering fluidity of the individually hand-set stones — is a particular speciality of Piaget. Despite the number of diamonds and intricacy of the underlying white-gold structure, the bracelet remains astonishingly supple, clinging to the wrist like a second skin.

One final model in the 2019 Possession is comparatively restrained in its use of diamonds, but exerts maximum impact with its expert application of gold-working, a skill for which Piaget is historically famed. A full cuff of hand-worked textured Milanese mesh is paired with an iridescent mother-of-pearl dial that complements the effervescent shimmer of the textured mesh. Both the case and the iconic rotating bezel are fully set with diamonds, forming the perfect accompaniment to the exquisite gold-worked cuff.
