In 1998, Michel Parmigiani developed his first watch movement: a shaped movement for a shaped watch. From the brand's inception, consistency between the contents and the container, between the mechanical heart and the exterior aesthetics, was a key principle of its authenticity. The new Kalpa Hebdomadaire pays tribute to the desire of its founder, Michel Parmigiani, and to the history of the Kalpa.
Hand-wound, power reserve movement
The calibre PF110, which is particularly symbolic for Parmigiani Fleurier, features the hours, minutes, small seconds at 6 o'clock, date and power reserve indicator. In keeping with the other new-generation Kalpa watches, the refined design features of its mechanism – ‘Côtes de Genève’ pattern, bevelled bridges and circular-graining – are exposed through a sapphire case-back, with the wide tonneau opening revealing its seamless integration with the case. It oscillates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations/hour (3 Hz) and is characterised by its impressive 8-day power reserve.
