 Toric Capitole

Inspired by the signature pocket watch of Perrin Frères in the early 19th century, it has a special zone time display function and the movement is entirely produced by Parmigiani. The PF321 movement is equipped with a minute repeater function with a cathedral bell device and a zone time display module. Time is displayed in a half-moon window made of Tahiti mother-of-pearl. Double knurled case with dial with hand-engraved geometry and surface covered with transparent enamel. Limited one.

 Ovale Collection

Ovale Tourbillon combines the beauty of an oval, the charm of a tourbillon frame, and the constant escapement of escapement. The PF501 movement is the top piece created by Parmigiani with its watchmaking skills, and it is also one of the very few 30-second tourbillon movements on the market. The tourbillon rotates twice a minute to improve the accuracy of the watch . The pink gold case with a black mother-of-pearl dial and the white gold dial with rose gold and silver Geneva waves are limited to 30 pieces each.

Ovale Collection

The Ovale Pantographe watch is inspired by a Vardon & Stedmann signature pocket watch produced in 1800. Ovale Pantographe is equipped with a magical design of telescopic hands. The hour and minute hands move precisely along the oval outline of the dial, expanding or contracting according to distance. The self-made PF 111 watch movement is exclusively manufactured by the Parmigiani Watchmaking Centre (MHF), and its complex craftsmanship reflects the construction of the hands. The processing technology needs to be accurate to 2 micrometers (0.001 mm mm = about 1 micrometer), which is extremely demanding. The drilling and ‘independent and gapless’ assembly of the blue titanium parts of the hands requires the watchmaker to be precise and accurate, and only humans can do this.

Kalpa Tourbillon

The extraordinary technology of this women’s Kalpa Tourbillon tourbillon is reflected in its 30-second tourbillon manual winding movement with a 7-day power reserve. This PF500 self-made movement has a tourbillon that rotates at twice the speed of a general tourbillon, thereby improving the regularity of the mechanical device. The dial of pure white mother-of-pearl is lined with power reserve indicators and lugs set with square diamonds, which is definitely the best choice for ladies who are low-key, stable and pay attention to details and taste.

 Bugatti Super Sport Black ADLC

Parmigiani reversed the mechanical structure to create a new direct-cut Bugatti PF372 movement, while retaining the time reading configuration favored by many drivers. The world’s first integrated double bevel gear system successfully developed a 90 ° time display mechanism, that is, the dial and the time display are at a vertical angle. With a 10-day power reserve, the sides of the case echo the classic lugs of the Parmigiani watch. Special force gauge crown for adjustment and winding with just one touch.


Journey Through Time And Space Jacques De Lo Butterfly Watch Real Shot

[Special Report from Watch House Basel] On April 25, 2013, the annual watch industry event Basel International Watch Fair kicked off. The watch house team went to Switzerland.

 A butterfly is pulling a little angel, hurried on the road … Such a scene is enough to make time stand still, is it a dream … or is it real? Does it mean an invitation to travel … or is it a return to innocence? The illustration found in an antique book by Jacques Dro was drawn by Pierre Jaquet-Droz, the founder and genius mechanic of the brand of the Enlightenment. Before today, this pattern has never been It has been copied and is the only and only thing in the world.

 As a watchmaker and avid art lover in the 18th century, it is no coincidence to make such a design. That stunning blue butterfly may represent the obsession with biology and naturalism of that era. Putti, the little angel Cupid, has a sculptural form that can be traced back to the common symbol of love in ancient Italian architecture.

 It was an era of ‘Grand Tour’ and its roots: just like other great men of its time, Pierre Jacquestro often went to the other side of the Alps to explore the splendid culture of the Apennine Peninsula and appreciate the magnificence of ancient Roman architecture Magnificence, the baroque and Renaissance gems contained in the magnificent finesse.

 The Loving Butterfly is not only a journey through time and space, but also expresses the visionary values ​​of the founder of the brand: scientific precision, a spirit of exploration, and a passion for nature, all of which are clear and colorful Grand Feu’s glazed enamel is presented neatly.

 The Loving Butterfly is the brand’s first watch with a gold case. It pays tribute to the brand’s 275th anniversary and also aims to revive the precious heritage of the founder’s period. The back of the case is marked with a limited number of 28 unique numbers. You can also appreciate the beautiful operation of the white gold oscillating weight and the hand-crafted lettering on the back of the case. These two iconic details, created by Ateliers d’ Art, are not only a continuation of the legend of Jacques Dro, but also the evolution of every second of time into a dream.
