Parmigiani Fleurier Kalparisma Agenda Galaxy Limited Edition

In January 2018, Parmigiani Fleurier introduced aventurine into its Kalparisma Nova family to mark its 10th anniversary, a move which met with unprecedented success. In August 2018, midway through the year of the Kalpa, the brand is launching the Kalparisma Agenda Galaxy, bringing back the aventurine dial and its magical representation of a star-filled sky.

Parmigiani Fleurier was one of the first brands to use aventurine in watchmaking and has numerous special editions that showcase the material on their dials. These pieces are called “Galaxy” as a reminder of the sparkling constellations evoked by the material. Likewise, the Kalparisma Agenda Galaxy represents a star-scattered sky that tells the story of the passage of time.

The Kalparisma Agenda Galaxy is limited to 50 pieces, with an engraving on the back of each watch. The 18 carat rose gold case is echoed in the hand-applied indices on the dial which are made from solid rose gold. The side borders of the dial on the Kalpa are adorned with two rows of diamonds, which extend to the lugs, for a total of 0.84 carats. The delta-shaped hands are skeletonised to better reveal the celestial display and to enhance the watch’s delicate femininity. Finally, the calendar at 6 o’clock picks up the colour of the aventurine glass to blend perfectly into the display.

The calibre PF331 is the first self-winding mechanical movement from Parmigiani Fleurier. Part of the Kalparisma family since 2008, it makes this model the brand’s first mechanical watch for women.

The unique feature of this movement is its series-mounted double barrel, which helps to stabilise the distribution of energy and ensure its uniform transmission to the regulator. It features the finest haute horlogerie finishes: the bridges are sand-blasted, drawn out or “Côtes de Genève” decorated, then bevelled by hand and, finally, rhodium-plated. The 22-carat gold oscillating weight features a guilloché barley grain motif.
