Parmigiani Fleurier was started in 1996 in Val-de-Travers. Founder Michel Parmigiani had conceived the brand as far back as 1976 through his work restoring watchmaking artifacts and his detailed knowledge of historical mechanical clocks and watches. All Parmigiani Fleurier watches are handmade, taking at least four hundred hours to put together. In order to create exclusivity, only a few thousand pieces are produced every year. The lot offered here is a very important piece fully made in Platinum under the iconic model Toric and featuring a 42 mm case diameter, powered by a beautiful manual-winding movement 12“' 25 101 with 45 hours power reserve. Inside this caliber the minute repeater complication is the best, sliding the side band at 9 o’clock the minute repeating function start, with striking hours, quarters and minutes on two gongs. The silvered worked “Grains d’orge” dial is beautiful with applied Arabic rhodium plated and dot indexes for the hours and including lots of functions: hours, minutes, seconds, GMT dual time and date. Moreover on the case stands out the baguette diamond-set bezel that embellished all the structure making this watch a true jewel. To complete the structure of the watch, the movement and the dial are shown through two sapphire glass powering, with the case, a water resistance of 3 atmosphere and the caliber is charged by the white-gold crown set with a genuine cabochon. This watch comes with the original warranty and booklets demonstrating the breadth of expertise inherent in Haute Horlogerie.
