Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpa XL Minute Repeater

The Kalpa collection pays tribute to the great watchmaking tradition, while revealing a new interpretation of the Minute Repeater for scrutiny. It demonstrates a highly modern spirit thanks to the innovative emphasis on its technical aspects, with the aperture in the dial revealing the wealth of its mechanical parts.

An open window on a watchmaking art form, it pays tribute to the virtuosity and skill of the master watchmakers capable of achieving this technological work. Through the dial the Minute Repeater, so often shrouded in mystery, is brought to life for your pleasure. The timer, time setting and chime mechanism can be seen working before your eyes.

Beyond the attention paid to the sound quality of its movement, the Minute Repeater for once, in this new Kalpa XL Minute Repeater model, has the complexity of its gears exquisitely emphasised.

The mechanical manual winding Calibre PF 350 has an hour and minute display, with a small seconds hand at 6 o’clock, and sounds every hour, quarter-hour and minute with two chimes. Its platinum 950 or 18 carat pink gold case is completely water-resistant to 30 metres.
