The ancient civilization of mankind can always inspire deeper charm in the new time course, just like the ancient Silk Road civilization. Thousands of years later, through the fog of history, rediscovering the ‘Silk Road Civilization’, whether it is an ancient building on that road, a collision of thoughts and artistic inspiration that has occurred, or a long-standing civilization story, it always gives people more Deep perception and inspiration.
In 2015, Piaget’s new Secrets & Lights– A Mythical Journey by Piaget collection of fine jewelry and watches inspired two important ancient cities in the “Silk Road Civilization” —Samarkand and Venice. Piaget boldly inspired and created the Secrets of Venice series inspired by the Italian water city of Venice and the Lights of Samarkand series inspired by the ancient city of Samarkand. When high-end watches and jewellery are injected into the civilization and thickness of history, they are no longer empty and gorgeous, but fascinating joy in the collision of history and modernity.
As one of the oldest cities in Central Asia, Samarkand is not only an important hub of the Silk Road, adjacent to the northern Kizilkum Desert, but also a magnificent city known as the ‘Queen of the Earth’. The Islamic-rich medieval Central Asian buildings on Registan Square have become the city’s most attractive landmarks and inspired the creation of the Piaget Lights of Samarkand collection of fine jewelry and watches.

The three famous seminaries on Registan Square, the Ulubo Theological Seminary, the Sher Dole Theological Seminary and the Gilli Collier Theological Seminary, and the vast sky of Central Asia constitute the delicate landscape and artistic conception of Piaget’s high-end watches.
