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 Tonda Métropolitaine Sélène is a feminine piece designed to represent the lunar phases. It enriched the modern, elegant design of the Métro collection with the 33rd proprietary movement, entirely manufactured in the Parmigiani Fleurier workshops.
The first feature of the Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda 1950 Lune is the highly contemporary moon phase with a display showing the two hemispheres, a calibrated scale corresponding to a lunar month of 29 and a half days, and rose gold discs reproducing the lunar cycle on the dial.
The signature elegant aesthetics of the Tonda 1950 is the reason why this model has become a brand bestseller. Parmigiani Fleurier decided to increase the scope of this piece by offering it in a material which is urban and contemporary, yet practical. Steel was the natural choice.
It was an oval pocket watch dating from 1780, fitted with a system in which two pawls in a cam enable the hands to extend and retract. It was Parmigiani Fleurier's task to transfer it to a wristwatch, which places more demands on this device, highly ingenious though it is, due to the range of positions the watch adopts throughout the day.
The Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Aérolithe Performance is a watch inspired by a mythical car. It was Ettore Bugatti’s son Jean who built the famous car made of magnesium which disappeared into thin air. Only a few photographs remain of the car, the new tribute watch is a less elusive.
