The Watch Quote™ - July 8th, 2007



July 7, 2007 (Paris, France) -- During a fairytale wedding at Saint Germain L’Auxerrois Church in Paris, Desperate Housewives’ leading lady, Eva Longoria, and basketball superstar, Tony Parker, exchanged vows and sealed their love with a pair of Piaget Possession wedding bands.  Unique to Piaget, the Possession rings feature two bands that are inseparably linked, turning together for eternity.  “They are such a wonderful couple, so in love and such an inspiration to so many,” states Philippe Léopold-Metzger, President of Piaget.  “We are honored that they have chosen Piaget’s Possession wedding bands to be the ultimate symbol of their love.”
 
Ms. Longoria’s Possession band is crafted from 18K white gold and features two rows of 80 brilliant-cut diamonds, separated by a row of 27 square-cut diamonds—a total of 107 breathtaking jewels.  Mr. Parker’s is a matching 18K white gold Possession band, the picture of elegant simplicity. At the couple’s request, a special inscription was engraved inside both rings in French.
 


Ms. Longoria, who with her stylist Robert Verdi, has had a longstanding love affair with Piaget, also commissioned a one-of-a-kind timepiece as a wedding gift for her MVP husband.

“An extraordinary player deserves a truly extraordinary watch,”

says Metzger.  “This is the type of request we love at Piaget because it’s what we do best.”  Certain to become the most sought-after watch by professional athletes around the world, the Piaget ‘Number 9’ is a specially customized version of the classic Piaget Polo watch.  It features a 43mm 18K white gold case and a makes a bold, handsome statement with its slate grey 18K gold and titanium bezel and matching slate grey dial.  The 50 diamonds that form Mr. Parker’s winning number 9 make it all his own.
 
Piaget has stood as an icon of excellence and creativity since its founding in 1874, elevating the manufacture of fine jewelry and timepieces to an absolute art.  The firm sets more diamonds than any other in Switzerland and is one of the only remaining watchmakers that designs and crafts its own cases, bracelets and movements.
