From 1998 -2001 the ancestor of the Kalpa was the Ionica with its in-house movement PF110. Now, in 2018, Michel Parmigiani is more than proud to introduce the all new Kalpa Chronor (Chf. 85.000,-), limited to 50 pieces.
The entire movement is shaped into the tonneau shaped case, in solid gold. The movement is extremely precise (5 Hz / 36.000 Vph) with COSC certificate. In the Kalpagraphe Chronomètre the Pf 362 movement is also in tonneau shape but not in solid gold, since it is no limted edtion (Chf 35.000,-).
The shape of the case is even more rounded to reflect the light in a more natural better way, the lugs are redesigned as is the crown.The caseback is fully open, not just a round circle like the previous edition. Kalpa Hebdomadaire (Chf 32.500,-) with its well designed Pf 110 caliber is a handwound movement.
Our advice: Go for the Kalpa Chronor and enjoy a solid gold watch with a solid gold movement!
