With a rose gold case in three sections and a stepped bezel, the Ovale Tourbillon from Parmigiani Fleurier boasts a truly dynamic design. Curved surfaces are broken up. Straight lines replace rounded ones. And beams of light bounce off the myriad angles this creates. The signature Parmigiani horns are no exception. A graduated chamfer tapers out towards the end, lending further tension. On this timepiece, the oval adopts a new stance, an overtly masculine one with a style of its own.
Its stunning dial combines the ever-classic “Côtes de Genève” design with Parmigiani Fleurier’s own Abyss Blue, a colour it keeps a closely-guarded secret. It is now standard practice for the Manufacture to offer a new model each year in this intense blue which gives the piece such unique appeal.
The Ovale Tourbillon, the new addition in the Ovale Pantographe line, is inspired by an antique piece and it houses the PF500 movement designed by Michel Parmigiani. This 30-second tourbillon movement with power reserve indicator reflects the Manufacture’s watchmaking expertise and its demand for the highest quality finishes, as demonstrated by the “Côtes de Genève” design and hand-bevelled bridges.
