Created during the second half of the past century in the small Swiss town named Fleurier, Parmigiani Fleurier is currently, one of the most respected members of the luxury watchmaking industry, internationally known for the exceptional quality and youthful exuberance of its horological products.
The brand started its fascinating adventure through the elitist world of the Haute Horology in 1975, when Michel Parmigiani, a young watch expert, decided to launch his own exclusivist watch-manufacture, and ever since dedicated his time and energy to creating some of the most beautiful timepieces of the day.
Through the years, the brand never abandoned its elitist philosophy and, the name Parmigiani Fleurier started to be associated, by the enthusiast watch collectors all over the world, with impeccable quality, reliability and aesthetical purity, and with top-class timepieces, created according to the most demanding standards of quality and reliability.
Not long ago, the brand brought another amazing addition to its sophisticated Parmigiani Fleurier Haute Horlogerie Watch Collection, a stylish timepiece, which emanates class and luxury, the new Kalpa XL Tourbillon PF011699.01 Watch performed in 18-karat rose gold and diamonds.
The model features an elegant barrel-shaped case, which measures 44.7 mm x 37.2 mm, and 11.50 mm in thickness and which harmoniously combines the warm glow of the 18-karat rose gold, with the seductive glitter of white diamonds, in order to conquer the hearts of some of the most demanding customers of the brand. The outstanding architecture of the case incorporates brilliant-cut diamonds with an approximate weight of 4.943 karats, a fluted crown decorated with the brand’s logo, and an exhibition case-back, and it confers 30-meter water resistance.
The model features an elegant white mother-of-pearl dial, nicely completed with the brand’s signature javelin-shaped gold hands, applied hour indices and Arabic numeral hour markers, manufactured from the same material, along four brilliant cut diamond markers, and four baguette-cut diamond embellishments. The model displays central hours, minutes and seconds functions, a tourbillon complication at 6 o’clock, and a power reserve indicator at 12 o’clock position.
In addition, we ought to mention that the model accommodates a top-quality hand-wound mechanical movement, the Parmigiani Fleurier Calibre 500, which incorporates 59 jewels, and which oscillates at a frequency of 21,600 alternations per hour, providing thus, a lengthily 7-days power reserve.
Moreover, the model embraces the wrist with a white mirror-finished calfskin leather strap, fitted with diamond-set, 18-karat gold pin buckle, and it will probably cost somewhere around $200,000.00.
