Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Tourbillon Slate (Price, Pictures and Specifications)
"We would like to congratulate the FHH on the creation of the new Watches & Wonders digital platform. Our Manufacture is proud to be part of this new project and introduce the Toric Slate Tourbillon, a timepiece that embodies our values: high horology and a contemporary interpretation of the teachings of the past." said Davide Traxler, CEO of Parmigiani Fleurier.
For the launch of the Watches & Wonders digital platform, Parmigiani Fleurier is proud to introduce the new Toric Tourbillon Slate, a distinguished timepiece representing the quintessence of refined watchmaking.
The ultra-thin PF517 movement, comprising a platinum micro-rotor, bridges with côtes de Genève decoration, and flying tourbillon, was developed following in-depth studies by the Manufacture's master watchmakers. To keep the piece as slim as possible, the tourbillon was in fact integrated in the movement's main plate. The position of the tourbillon at 7 o'clock on the dial is a nod to the brand's founder, Michel Parmigiani, who was born at 7:08 am on December 2nd, 1950.
The tourbillon’s captivating and hypnotic movement is in harmony with the barley grain guilloché pattern of the slate-coloured dial and is housed within a rose gold case inspired by Ancient Greek Doric columns and features a gaudron and knurling bezel. The colour of the javelin hour and minute hands echoes the rose gold of the case. The watch comes with a Hermès Havane leather strap.
The Toric was the first watch case designed by Michel Parmigiani, first introduced in 1996 for the launch of the brand that nowadays bears his name. This new tourbillon piece joins other haute horlogerie pieces in the Toric collection and represent lifelong lessons in this master watchmaker’s career and background in restoration.
Michel Parmigiani has in fact dealt with mechanical marvels of the past, often unique, and has uncovered many of their secrets. He honours them in his modern collections, often inspired by history and re-imagined for today’s world.
